Evaluation of the INSPIRE Trial and Its Implications for Lung Transplantation With Normothermic Portable Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion
October 30, 2019
A balanced appraisal of last year's manuscript from the Lancet Group on a relatively novel portable Organ Care System for donor lungs. The analysis of the technical complications, especially organ damage from overenthusiastic revving of the pump, is particularly sobering.
Prevalence of Atrial Fibrillation Before Cardiac Surgery and Factors Associated With Concomitant Ablation

An interesting small British-led randomized controlled trial on modern imaging of coronary atheroma.
Accurate Needle-Free Assessment of Myocardial Oxygenation for Ischemic Heart Disease in Canines Using Magnetic Resonance Imaging
May 29, 2019
Using period hypercapnea as a surrogate "contrast" agent, myocardial oxygenation was assessed using cardiac MR and accurately mapped areas of relative ischemia.
