The Beat with Joel Dunning Ep. 19

Thursday, August 10, 2023

In this episode of CTSNet’s flagship podcast, editor in chief Joel Dunning runs through the latest, most popular content on—the largest online community of CT surgeons and source of CT surgery information—and breaking cardiothoracic surgery news and research from around the world.

Joel discusses the STS and AATS rebuttal to the 2023 Chronic Coronary Disease Guideline, the development of an adult congenital mortality risk model, and early deterioration of heart valves that have now been taken off the market.

He also talks about videos demonstrating pulmonary artery aneurysm replacement with vascular prosthesis, a RATS bilateral lobectomy, and an off-pump reconstruction of the right pulmonary artery in an infant. After discussing upcoming events in the CT surgery world, he closes with a shoutout to the late cardiac surgeon Simon MacGowan.
