2016 EEM LA I: Live demo of suturing pearls!

Brian Lin ( @bwlin720 ), the legend behind, walks us through a complex V-to-Y laceration repair, throwing in some cool tricks of the trade, including the very useful Aberdeen surgical knot at the end!  This segment was one of several mind-blowing lectures that we showcased last week at our in-studio Essentials session.  For full access to more educational gold by other faculty like Chris Hicks ( @HumanFact0rz ) and Zlatan Coralic ( @ZEDPharm ), sign up for any Essentials 2016 package today!

See what Billy Mallon, alcohol, and a beached brain have in common!
