"Picture this: twice a year, over 30,000 cardiologists from all over the United States — and increasingly throughout the world — get together to discuss the latest and greatest research findings that will shape the way they provide care. It may not sound like your idea of a party, but it's an amazing tour de force which ultimately will impact the treatments that become available to you down the line."

Interesting you should mention this, as I was just reading an article about the best place to perform a stent, here's the link;;_ylt=AhdVFQ1IzXWe.HuQIdsAhOPVJRIF;_ylu=X3oDMTJsMWVpcWwyBGFzc2V0A2FwLzIwMTEwNDA0L3VzX21lZF9oZWFydF9kaXNlYXNlBGNwb3MDMQRwb3MDMwRzZWMDeW5fdG9wX3N0b3J5BHNsawNmdWxsbmJzcHN0b3I -

I did not realize that the arm is the preferred method in India, Israel, Europe and Canada. It also says that only 5% of these procedures are done via the arm here, it will be interesting to see if protocol changes.

Interesting article, certainly worth the read.
