YouTube Surgery: How To Pluck a Mass Out of Someone’s Neck
April 26, 2009 § Leave a comment
This is a very informative video on how a neck mass excision is performed, made and uploaded by Dr. Kevin Soh, an ENT surgeon from Singapore.
Combining photos, graphics and video he creates a deeper understanding of a procedure that may seem pretty straight forward. He even puts in a little “poetry” in the captions:

The video footage is recorded through an operation microscope, which must be done solely to get good pictures, as an operation like this would not normally include a microscope. The footage is a bit dark and I think a voice over could have added more to this than the music, but all in all I like this video a lot.

WIRED Science has put up an article with “10 Gory Surgical Triumphs on YouTube”. Although their approach is somewhat sensasionalist, the idea to collect surgical videos available on YouTube is good. It has actually inspired me to start a series of posts where I’ll pick a surgical video from YouTube every week and review it.
What better then, than to start with the videos WIRED picked? Are they good videos that communicate something of use, or are they just, as WIRED calls them, “gory”?
Here are my reviews of the first five videos. « Read the rest of this entry »
Nice article on surgical video

Mike Cohen, a video producer based in Connecticut, USA, has written a comprehensive article on surgical videography with lots of production tips on both open and laparoscopic surgery (photo credit). The article features some great pictures. Nice to see someone else writing about the same stuff as myself. Be sure to check it out!
