Here are some of the photos I took for the main news report in Coração e Vasos magazine #3. I go to the Cardiothoracic Surgery service in Santa Maria Hospital often, so most of the staff know me well. That made it easy to get the shots I wanted because they were very confortable having me around.
Beware, there are some images that might be too graphic for more sensitive people. They are not too explicit and are more of the professionals because that's the focus of our report.
In the magazine we can have the patients faces, but I blurred the faces for this blog post.
The beginning of the surgery.
