Tiger Country Resurrected - Episode Six: Your Pal the Appendix and How to Care for It
D. Dante Yeh is the Chief of Emergency General Surgery at Denver Health Medical Center and is the author of an incredibly comprehensive multicenter study with the coolest name you could imagine. The MUSTANG Trial looked at the treatment of appendicitis in America and addressed questions that had, until then, really only been looked at in European studies. Listen as we talk about the honestly fascinating conclusions from that study as well as a discussion about why America is different. Did you know that the nonoperative treatment of appendicitis in Belgium involved mussels? It's the broth that's really important, though. We end by discussing Dr. Yeh's nationally renowned fashion sense. When I told my friend Rich Betzold that we had interviewed Dr. Yeh, his first response was, "You know he wears ascots? They're so cool." And it's true. He wears ascots and they are cool.
