Rank #1: How to Recruit More Women Into Surgery

Jun 19 2018
Podcast cover

Women make up 46% of medical school graduates; however, only 22% of cardiothoracic surgery trainees are women. Of the 8,617 people who have been certified by The American Board of Thoracic Surgery to date, only 308 (3.6%) are women. STS Director-at-Large Shanda H. Blackmon, MD, MPH says that has to change. She provides 10 tips on how to attract more female candidates into the specialty. Her talk originally was given at the 2018 European Society of Thoracic Surgeons Annual Meeting in Ljubljana, Slovenia. It also is available at https://youtu.be/yHqijGPF9L8.

Rank #2: Eye of the Beholder: The Reinvention of Seeing

Jun 15 2018
Podcast cover

Cardiothoracic surgeons and their professional societies must be leaders in accountability and transparency. In his Presidential Address at the 2018 STS Annual Meeting in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Richard L. Prager, MD noted that surgeons must embrace their failures and always think about getting better—not winning, but getting better—in order to be successful.

Rank #3: STS Key Contacts: Advocates for Cardiothoracic Surgery

Jun 07 2018
Podcast cover

One way that cardiothoracic surgeons can have a direct impact on federal policy affecting the specialty is by participating in the STS Key Contact program, which offers grassroots advocacy opportunities. In this episode, experienced Key Contacts share why they participate in political advocacy, describe the importance of STS-PAC, and role-play a meeting with a Congressional staff member—showing both how things can go wrong and how to make them go right.

Rank #4: Quality and Innovation in Cardiothoracic Surgery: Colliding Imperatives?

Jun 01 2018
Podcast cover

The fine line between delivering quality treatment and embracing innovation may sometimes make cardiothoracic surgeons feel trapped between conflicting goals. In his Presidential Address at the 2017 STS Annual Meeting in Houston, Texas, Joseph E. Bavaria, MD challenged that paradigm. He encouraged his colleagues to continually experiment and adapt, but also to always keep the patient in mind.

Rank #5: Innovation for Life

May 25 2018
Podcast cover

Even though an operation or a process has been around for a long time and may seem "normal," an innovative idea can change it all. In his Presidential Address at the 2016 STS Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona, Mark S. Allen, MD described five common characteristics shared by innovators inside and outside of medicine and urged cardiothoracic surgeons to embrace innovation and ultimately make the specialty better for themselves and their patients.

Rank #6: A New Global Health Crisis

May 18 2018
Podcast cover

Over the last several decades, deaths from noncommunicable diseases—including cardiovascular disease and lung and esophageal cancer—have increased in the developing world. In his Presidential Address at the 2015 STS Annual Meeting in San Diego, California, David A. Fullerton, MD outlined the problem, the Society’s efforts to fund charitable surgical missions in developing nations, and STS members who are making a difference.

Rank #7: Take It to the Limit

May 11 2018
Podcast cover

Taking it to the limit is what cardiothoracic surgery has done for the past 50 years and what STS has done on behalf of the specialty for that same half century; however, some things that once made CT surgery successful may now be counterproductive. In his Presidential Address at the 2014 STS Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida, Douglas E. Wood, MD challenged his colleagues in the male-dominated profession to welcome in more women and transition away from a masculine, autocratic leadership style.

Rank #8: How to Successfully Implement Surgical Innovations and New Technologies into Practice

May 04 2018
Podcast cover

Health care professionals tend to be traditional and conservative when it comes to practice, so incorporating new technologies and innovations into the hospital and the operating room can be a challenge. Four cardiothoracic surgery change drivers—Shanda H. Blackmon, MD, MPH, James D. Luketich, MD, T. Sloan Guy, MD, MBA, and Linda W. Martin, MD, MPH—provide advice on how to get buy-in from hospital administrators, as well as team members.

Rank #9: The Consequences of Refusing Surgery

Apr 27 2018
Podcast cover

Two studies presented at the recent STS Annual Meeting showed that surgical therapy is superior to alternative treatment approaches for both esophageal cancer and coronary artery disease in younger patients. In light of these findings, Robbin G. Cohen, MD, MMM, Mark S. Allen, MD, Sebron W. Harrison, MD, and Alan M. Speir, MD discuss why patients refuse surgery, how they respond to patients who opt against surgery, and the obligations of surgeons in an age of patient autonomy.

Rank #10: Discrepancies Between Evidence-Based and Real-World Practices

Apr 20 2018
Podcast cover

On average, it takes 17 years before new innovation is disseminated into clinical practice. How can cardiothoracic surgery change that statistic and speed up the process? Juan A. Sanchez, MD moderates a discussion with Michael S. Kent, MD, Kevin W. Lobdell, MD, and W. Chance Conner, MD about why there is a gap, strategies for implementation, and quicker adoption by the end user (hospital, clinician, etc.).
