Message from the Chair

Michael Fischbein, MD, PhD

The Council on Cardiovascular Surgery and Anesthesia (CVSA) continues to work on improving and fostering education, research and clinical care of patients undergoing cardiovascular surgery. Whether attending Scientific Sessions in November, participating in writing scientific statements or guidelines, or getting involved in “You’re the Cure” or AHA advocacy efforts, we hope you will join the Council on Cardiovascular Surgery and Anesthesia in its efforts to increase scientific and medical knowledge and better the quality of care of patients with cardiac and vascular disease amenable to treatment with surgery.
