It seems I only ever get time to really work on my blog when I get away to a conference.
So here I am in wonderful San Francisco ready to soak up all that the American College of Cardiology meeting has to offer in 2013. The theme is ‘Discovery to Delivery’ although many of the subjects of the ‘late breaking’ sessions involve decidedly old drugs in refined applications – think tenecteplase in PE, viagra in diastolic heart failure, digoxin in the elderly…
Non-pharma interventions will feature heavily with more on TAVI, atrial appendage occluders and another ‘old’ idea; off-pump bypass surgery.
You can find a good summary of the things that might attract attention here, courtesy of the heart.org.
We’re here to present some new data on high sensitivity troponin in a session of moderated posters on Monday, but I will post separately on that. For starters the abstracts are all now online and you can check out the session here.
The plan is to try and do a daily post at least with lots of tweeting on the #ACC13 hashtag, so we’ll see how it goes. It’s going to be a busy few days.
