    Of course if you don't memorize that the right hepatic artery arises from the superior mesenteric artery in 15% of patients, you'll probably kill someone.

    Or should I just reason that through while the patient is under anesthesia and hope I can retrace evolution and development in my mind?

    and there are *some* MD scientists that just want to be scientists and never see a patient....

    True enough, but when I come in to the ER with crushing substernal chest pain radiating down my left arm, I want the doc to rotely put me on Oxygen, give me a baby aspirin and call the cath lab. No thinking. No holding my hand while I infarct more heart. Just get done what needs to get done...and fast.
