The operation that House performs on the mother and fetus in this episode is closely based on a Michael Clancy photograph called "Fetal Hand Grasp", which documents a 1999 operation on a 21 week old fetus with spina bifida. During that operation, Clancy photographed what he describes as the child reaching out of the incised uterus and grasping the surgeon's finger. See more
