ACC.11: CardioExchange Coverage Roundup

Whether you’re attending ACC.11 or not, check out our coverage of late-breaking clinical trials, interviews with the authors of the most important research, and blogs from our fellows on the most interesting presentations at the meeting.


  • PARTNER A: An Investigator’s View: Michael Mack, a principal investigator of the PARTNER study of TAVI versus AVR in patients with aortic stenosis, discusses the results released at ACC.11 and answers questions from CardioExchange’s Rick Lange and David Hillis.
  • TAVI: PARTNER or Blind Date?: Rick Lange looks at the PARTNER results and asks, “Will you offer TAVI to your ‘high-risk’ aortic stenosis patients as an ‘excellent alternative’ to AVR?”


  • Great Things at the ACC Poster Hall: Amit Shah appreciates the down time he has at ACC to spend in the Poster Hall and discusses two of the studies he found most interesting.
  • The Real Show: The Expo Hall: Justin Vader marvels over the innovative technology to be found in the Expo hall, and finds the true pleasure of the meeting to be reconnecting with old friends from residency.



  • A STICH in Time: Presenter Eric Velazquez previews the Surgical Treatment for Ischemic Heart Failure trial being presented at ACC.
