Have you ever wondered…

…after retracting abdomens and clamping vessels, where oh where do all the old surgical instruments end up. My first thoughts:

  3. Melted down to produce LOTR rings

Not so, as a creative colleague has shown with these images.

Apparently his wife banned him from whipping up a speculum hat stand.

I can imagine old MRI’s stacked into a fun slide for the little ones.
