At the 2024 STS Annual Meeting, CTSNet Editor in Chief Joel Dunning and CTSNet senior editors set out to interview the most knowledgeable CT surgeons from around the world. Stay tuned for more interviews from the meeting.

CTSNet Senior Editor Mara Antonoff spoke with Dr. Anna Olds, a cardiothoracic surgery resident at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California, USA, about her presentation on patterns in family planning and major pregnancy complications for cardiothoracic surgeons.
