Most Popular Cardiology Technology Content in September 2018

Two of the top videos in September both had to do with interventional cardiology hemodynamic support support protocols. The top piece of content in September is an interview on the protocols used to determine what device technology to use at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. Number 13 on the list is another video on late-breaking data presented TCT 2018 from the National Cardiogenic Shock Initiative (NCSI) where mortality was improved by 50 percent over the current standard of care.

Transplanting Pig Hearts Into Humans One Step Closer. A pig heart, shown here, is very similar in size and anatomy to a human heart. For this reason, pigs are used extensively in pre-clinical animal testing for new implantable cardiovascular devices. If pig hearts could be used for human transplantation, it would greatly alleviate shortages of donor human hearts.
