Medical adventures: work at heart.

On March 11, Michel Cymes analysed for France 2’s viewers, a cardiac transplant. Palpitating!
Another show on a cardiac transplant: oh la la! Hosted by Michel Cymes: that changes everything. TV veteran, fun when he wants to be, Cymes is first and foremost a surgeon, able to describe in situ the clamping of a ventricle without fainting or getting bogged down in a long winded explanation or the oversight of a student. He will explain before you can even ask what that is.
In this chapter of medical adventures, he follows two transplantation teams, by plane, car, and on foot. A race against time, almost a thriller that doesn’t always end well, interspersed with flash-backs on some loony use of the scalpel.

We learn that the heart transplant pioneer is not the one we thought, that Galien was an idiot whose crazy theories were respected for fifteen centuries, that the stitching of blood vessels has everything to do with an embroiderer from Lyon and a scalpel lover tempted by genetic engineering, and that a heart can still beat in a cup.
We can see that the heart has a sense of humour. But more than anything, it’s possible to make an intelligent and lively programme on a topic seen before.
Medicine adventures. At the heart of man. Tuesday, March 11th, 8:40 on France 2.
