The Beat with Joel Dunning Ep. 33

Thursday, November 16, 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 outcome of the second genetically modified pig heart transplant, a meta-analysis of reconstructed data from the TAVR trial, and perioperative Durvalumab for resectable non-small cell lung cancer.

He also talks about a video demonstrating left atrial aneurysm repair by IVC transection and a video demonstrating surgical repair of a double aortic arch through a sternotomy. After discussing upcoming events in the CT surgery world, he closes with a shoutout to the CT surgeons he worked with during his recent trip to UGMC Hospital in Accra, Ghana.
