Invasive Thoughts: Refresh and Return

Dr. Naidu


Hi everyone!  Many of you may recall that about ten years ago I wrote a fairly popular blog, long before they were commonplace.  I wrote 12 blogs between 2009 and 2012, and they are all still housed on the Journal of Invasive Cardiology website.


I'm planning on starting them up again and will post new ones here going forward.  In addition to topics that I generally feel I have something to contribute towards, such as cardiogenic shock, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and the COVID pandemic and its effects on interventional cardiology, there will also be "water-cooler" type discussions.


For now, please take a look at the dozen blogs. Go easy on me though - I was pretty early in my career when I wrote them!


1. Word of Caution: Proving Less is More is More or Less Easy (2009)


2. Cardiology is a Team Sport (2010)


3. PFO and Cryptogenic Stroke: Finding Closure (2010)


4. Revisiting the Gold Standard (2010)


5. Calling All Leaders: SCAI ELM Program (2010)


6. First Look: CLOSURE Trial Preliminary Results (2010)


7. Medicine: Balancing Science and Art (2010)


8. Interventional Heart Failure: Has Its Time Come? (2011)


9. Is it Worth Doing the Most Important Trials?  Yes and No (2011)


10. Is the United States Different? (2011)


11. With Great Power Comes Great Responsibilities: Ethical Dilemmas at the Top (2011)


12. Reflections on the Appropriate Use Criteria for PCI (2012)


Until next time,
