Fellows will engage with literature and the faculty by debating key topics for thoracic and cardiac surgery. By taking a position, supported by evidence, and providing a compelling argument, fellows will be able to provide clear rationale for their practice as well as improved responses on their board exams. Faculty will score the debates and provide feedback on the presentations. Debate topics and participants will be assigned in advance.
Participants will be timed. Fellows should read carefully and watch the videos provided on the debates basics and evidence tabs on this site before their first debate. The faculty have identified the evidence most relevant and important to the debate topics. Back to Home Page. Book a Study Room Questions? Ask Us!

Surgery involves replacing the weakened section of blood vessel or heart with a patch or artificial tube called a graft. Aneurysms in the wall of the heart occur most often in the lower-left chamber called the left ventricle.
These aneurysms are called left ventricular aneurysms, and they may develop after a heart attack. A heart attack can weaken the wall of the left ventricle. If a left ventricular aneurysm leads to an irregular heartbeat or to heart failure, the surgeon may perform open heart surgery to remove the damaged part of the wall. Angina is the pain you feel when a diseased vessel in your heart called a coronary artery can no longer deliver enough blood to a part of the heart to meet its need for oxygen.
Angina usually occurs when your heart has an extra need for oxygen-rich blood, such as during exercise. Angina is nearly always caused by coronary artery disease CAD. Transmyocardial laser revascularization TMLR is a procedure that uses lasers to make channels in the heart muscle, in an attempt to allow blood to flow from a heart chamber directly into the heart muscle. If the blood flow is increased, more oxygen can reach the heart.
This procedure is only done as a last resort. For example, TMLR may be done in patients who have had many coronary artery bypass operations and cannot have another bypass operation. Carotid artery disease affects the vessels leading to the head and brain. This blood supply is delivered to the brain by the 2 large carotid arteries in the front of your neck and by 2 smaller vertebral arteries at the back of your neck. The right and left vertebral arteries come together at the base of the brain to form what is called the basilar artery.

A stroke most often occurs when fatty plaque blocks the carotid arteries and the brain does not get enough oxygen. Carotid endarterectomy is the most common surgical treatment for carotid artery disease. Surgeons make an incision at the location of the blockage in the neck and a tube is inserted above and below the blockage to reroute blood flow.
Surgeons can then remove the fatty plaque. A carotid endarterectomy can also be done by a technique that does not require blood flow to be rerouted. In this procedure, the surgeon stops the blood flow just long enough to peel the blockage away from the artery.
