What is the relationship between atherosclerosis and acute myocardial infarction? How do aldosterone blockers reduce mortality? What steps are doctors taking toward personalized cardiac medicine? What are the new drugs and devices to treat hypertension? What is salt’s role in the human diet? The international cardiology community examined these questions and more at the Cardiology Update 2013 in Davos, Switzerland earlier this year.
A two-member video team from the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) was also there to conduct interviews with the thought leaders in the field as part of the MyCardio interview series. The ESC and European Heart Journal are now present at all the major cardiology congresses worldwide to record these MyCardio interviews and almost 200 interviews available on the European Heart Journal website, covering a wide spectrum of topics in cardiology.
A selection of the interviews for Cardiology 2013 is presented below.
Salim Yusuf on salt’s implications for cardiovascular health
Franz Messerli on hypertension
Joseph Loscalzo on personalized cardiovascular medicine
Peter Libby on atherosclerosis, inflammation, and acute myocardial infarction
Bertram Pitt on the history of Cardiology Update in Davos
