This Girl Tr òn: The Forgotten Subject of Vietnam War Photographer Larry Burrows

MedWorm Heart Transplant - Wed, 09/13/2017 - 02:40
Larry Burrows was a seasoned veteran of the Vietnam War when, in early 1968, he met 12-year-old Nguyễn Thị Tròn. Operating out of Saigon, the southern Republic of Vietnam’s capital, the photographer had been covering the conflict for LIFE magazine since 1962.

Why a $1,000 iPhone Isn ’t as Crazy as It Sounds

MedWorm Heart Transplant - Tue, 09/12/2017 - 11:00

If you’re like me, you’ve been waiting with especially bated breath, because your handset is several years old, loses power faster than an overthrown dictator and inexplicably smells like fish tacos. In other words, it’s upgrade time, baby, and we all deserve the latest and greatest. This time around, however, Apple’s top-of-the-line iPhone will probably be more expensive than in years past. In addition to trumpeting an exciting array of new features, the rumor mill has been spinning claims that Apple’s next must-have handset could cost as much as $1,000. That’s 147 pi...

Hepatocellular carcinoma: Resection vs. transplantation

MedWorm Liver Transplant - Fri, 09/08/2017 - 03:00
(Deutsches Aerzteblatt International) Liver transplantation is the gold standard for treating early hepatocellular cancers. Because of the lack of donors, this option is, however, available to a limited degree only. Curative liver resection is an alternative in this setting. Markus B. Schoenberg, Julian N. Bucher, and coauthors investigated whether liver resection can yield results that are comparable to those of liver transplantation. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)
