The Beat With Joel Dunning Ep. 50

Thursday, April 4, 2024

This week, on the 50th episode of The Beat, Editor in Chief Joel Dunning discusses the importance of work–life balance as a cardiothoracic surgeon and how Prof. Shanda Blackmon’s book, The Support Group, has driven this point home for him.

In addition, Joel discusses outcomes following redo mitral valve surgery, the validity of the GERAADA score in predicting mortality, and mechanical versus biological aortic valve replacement for endocarditis.

He also talks about radial artery to LIMA T graft formation, an interview with Leonard Girardi, and a World’s Best Series interview with Lars Svensson. Before saying goodbye, he discusses upcoming events in CT surgery and closes with an honorable mention to Prof. Blackmon.
