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.
