I met with Dr. Alan Braverman to talk about aortic diseases (aka aortopathies) such as Marfan’s disease, Ehlers-Danlos and Loeys-Dietz. We discuss everything from clinical presentations and genetics to treatments.

Dr Christie Ballantyne is the chief of cardiology and cardiovascular research at Baylor College of Medicine. He gave grand rounds on cardiovascular disease prevention at Washington University in St. Louis. I interviewed him about the commonly used risk calculators and how he assesses cardiovascular risk in the office.

AP Cardiology is coming up on one year next month and with that milestone, I wanted to ask for your participation in a short survey. There are 5 questions, and I’m just want to get an idea of who my audience is (so I can tailor the episodes better), what you enjoy and get any feedback you have for the show. Shouldn’t take more than a minute or two, and I’d greatly appreciate it!
