Tiger Country - Episode Ten: Surgical Treatment of Gastric and Duodenal Ulcers, or, That’s A Spicy Meatball
In this episode, DuBose and Milos are sadly deprived of my companionship and commentary, but that's perfectly fine because they're talking to David Feliciano and who's a better guest than that? The three of them discuss the operative treatment of gastric and duodenal ulcer disease, which was once a mainstay of emergency general surgery and is now something rarer than hen's teeth. In addition to proton pumps, those pills inhibit trainee experience. When we started eradicating H. pylori, we started eradicating familiarity with the Kelling-Madlener and Pauchet procedures. I can't think of a third one. Anyway, I'm not there for this episode because I was off on my bachelor weekend, which is apt because Dr. Feliciano talks about what it's like when your spouse is as much a surgical heavyweight as you are. He also talks about his fondness of powerboating and what it was like to train with Michael DeBakey. DuBose and Milos do not ask Dr. Feliciano if Debakey would tell the scrub to, "hand me the me clamp," or snap, "these me forceps are off-center, damn it all!" If I had been there I would have asked that.
