The Beat with Joel Dunning Ep. 22

Thursday, August 31, 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 first autoregulated total artificial heart implant in the United States, a study of on-table chest drain removals, and the association between fluoroquinolone use and hospitalization with aortic aneurysm.

He also talks about an off-pump technique for aortic arch debranching, another recording from AATS 2023, and the recent congenital cardiac Guest Editor Series. After discussing upcoming events in the CT surgery world, he closes with a shoutout to the father of modern mitral valve repair, Alain Carpentier.
