Now that it's getting close to Halloween, we're running a contest to hear your scariest stories! These can be scary stories that you've experienced or stories that you've heard and the story with the most reactions will win!
I know this isn't exactly what you're looking for, but I think some of the coolest surgeries aren't the big crazy cases. For example, I was in the OR all day yesterday from something like 7am to 6pm. I think some of the cases were cool (ankle scope and lateral ankle stabilization, flatfoot recon) but I think possibly the coolest cases were the 2 tarsal tunnel releases we did. For some reason there is something that is just cool about opening it up and seeing the anatomy laid out in front of you and watching the posterior tibial artery pumping. It's also pretty satisfying when you find the constriction that is causing them problems and you can release it (especially if the fascia is thicker and it has that satisfying "crunch" when you snip it.)
