Update CardSurg is a monthly newsletter that is produced as an open-source compendium of recent advances in cardiothoracic surgery across subspecialties by Dr. Manish Hinduja, for the benefit of everyone involved in cardiothoracic surgical care (practicing consultants, registrars, trainees, cardiologists, cardiac anaesthetists, perfusionists & physician assistants).
It intends to provide a quick-bite of the happenings in cardiothoracic surgery as reported in literature with brief and to-the-point dissections of articles published in global literature. While the monthly-manifesto discusses technology, practise and outcomes, it is solely for the benefit of better understanding and broad-spectrum understanding of subspecialties, given the rapid pace in which cardiovascular surgery is moving ahead.
Note: The initiative is a personal effort for the benefit of practitioners and does not feature off of any profitable/ commercial interests.
This scientific endeavor is endorsed by the Indian Association of Cardiovascular-Thoracic Surgeons
