Where did the concept for Rupture come from?
I had to operate urgently on a patient for a failed medical device. During the procedure, I wondered what if all similar type devices began to fail, at once. Then I threw the dilemma at Eli Branch.
Why did you pick Rupture as the title?
It’s the literal meaning of aortic rupture, the cause of death of the victims. But I also think of the title as a metaphor for the disruption between medicine and society’s trust.
