Dear NYSTS Members and Colleagues,
The NYSTS had its first in-person meeting in several years this past Spring and it was a smashing success. We all appreciated the renewed opportunity to interact with our peers across the city and the region, allowing us to collaborate and pursue our academic endeavors. The NYSTS remains steadfast in our commitment to the academic advancement of the field of cardiothoracic surgery by fostering the development of cardiothoracic surgeons and trainees in adult cardiac, congenital, structural heart and thoracic surgery.
The 2022 NYSTS Fall meeting is approaching, and we are planning for an exciting an interactive in-person dinner conference at The Water Club on Wednesday November 2nd, 2022. Our keynote speaker, Dr. Valavanur A. Subramanian, will discuss the history and development of cardiothoracic surgery in New York City. Dr. Subramanian was the former Chairman of Surgery and Chief of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital. Throughout his career, he has been on the cutting edge of cardiothoracic surgery, pioneering new tools and techniques such as membrane oxygenators, the intra-aortic balloon pump, and robotic and minimally invasive cardiac surgery.
Residents and fellows are also encouraged to submit their abstracts and video presentations on interesting and/or unusual cases in the field of adult, congenital, transcatheter and thoracic surgery. Have you had particularly difficult, challenging, crazy, or unique cases that present diagnostic or therapeutic dilemmas? We would like to learn about your toughest cases and their creative solutions. Pictures and videos are highly encouraged! Each abstract will include a case presentation, followed by suggestions from the audience, and finally the solution crafted by the presenters. We are looking forward to learning about the impressive work that is being done across New York and the surrounding regions by our cardiac and thoracic surgery colleagues. A cocktail hour will be followed by dinner, abstract presentations, and our keynote speaker. Please join us and represent the amazing work that is being done at your program.
The top abstracts/videos for each track (cardiac and thoracic) will be selected and eligible to present at the Fall meeting. The residents will have 5 minutes for presentation, with a 5-slide powerpoint presentation or video. Each presentation will have a discussion involving the audience and panelists. The residents will then present their solution and outcomes of the case.
