Author: by Thomas Thompson
December 13, 2016
Pioneer heart surgeons and bitter rivals: The thoroughly engrossing true story of doctors Michael DeBakey and Denton Cooley (The New York Times Book Review). By 1970, the Texas Medical Center in Houston was the leading heart institute in the world, home to the field’s two most distinguished surgeons: Dr. Michael Ellis DeBakey and his young and ambitious disciple, Dr. Denton Arthur Cooley.
Their combined mastery in occlusive disease, coronary artery bypass surgery, angioplasty, and heart transplants was unparalleled. For years they worked across the same operating table focused on, and fighting toward, the same lifesaving goals. But what began as a personal friendship and a mutually respectful professional partnership soon deteriorated into a jealous and embittered feud.
Though their discord was a cause clbre among colleagues, it would take award-winning investigative journalist Thomas Thompson to uncover the stunning betrayals and simmering resentments that fueled one of the most famous rivalries in the history of medicine. Weaving the story of DeBakey and Cooley with the stories of patients suffering life-threatening medical conditions, Thompson paints a fascinating portrait of the risks and rewards of cutting-edge science.
14. Living with Graft-Versus-Host Disease
Author: by Brad Buchanan
LIVING WITH GRAFT-VERSUS-HOST DISEASE: HOW I STOPPED FIGHTING AND STARTED HEALING is both a personal account of Brad Buchanan’s experience as a stem-cell transplant recipient and Graft-versus-Host Disease patient and a readable survey of the special challenges posed by both acute and chronic GvHD.
When Brad went in for his stem-cell transplant in 2016, he had a sibling donor who was deemed a 10/10 match, and yet he developed an acute case of GvHD that nearly proved fatal, left him functionally blind for nearly two years, and dramatically altered his life circumstances.
Having weathered this storm thanks to expert medical help and ECP (Extra-Corporeal Photopheresis), he has had to change his outlook on life as a cancer survivor, accept his condition as a chronic GvHD patient, and look for new ways to improve his day-to-day existence and long-term prospects.
His story is both sobering and inspiring, and offers messages of warning and hope for patients, doctors, and care-givers alike.
