The Atrium: Basics of Thoracic Surgery

Thursday, June 6, 2024

In a new CTSNet podcast for residents and trainees, host Dr. Alice Copperwheat examines essential procedures and pressing topics for early career cardiothoracic surgeons. In her debut episode, Alice speaks with CTSNet Editor in Chief Professor Joel Dunning about the basics of thoracic surgery. They discuss patient positioning, thoracic incision location and technique, and opening and closing techniques. They also debate the increasing popularity of robotic thoracic surgery and the merits of different surgical techniques.

The Atrium will air once a month, rotating between clinical and career-focused topics from across the cardiothoracic surgery subspecialties. Stay tuned next month for an episode on vein harvesting.
