This three-day program is the 55th in a series of annual programs offering a realistic view of current clinical topics in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, customary and prevailing, controversial and/or investigational, including basic and clinical research. A faculty of leaders are invited to share their knowledge and experience of complex cases of new technology relevant to surgeons practicing this specialty. The format consists of faculty and resident didactic oral presentations with moderated discussion periods, poster presentations and surgical videos focusing on basic research, quality assurance, ischemic heart disease, valvular heart disease, congestive heart failure and treatment, treatment of thoracic aneurysms, lung cancer, esophageal cancer, and thoracic trauma. Physicians will have an enhanced understanding of the latest techniques and current research specifically related to adult cardiovascular surgery and general thoracic surgery. Physicians will be able to utilize the results presented to select appropriate surgical procedures for their own patients and integrate state-of-the-art knowledge into their practice.
