ICN WA Poster


Ever watched a heart transplant? And no, standing behind an anaesthetic machine to intermittently get glimpses of red stuff in between various surgeons and scrub staff does not count. We mean a surgeon's eye view of the whole thing? Mr Larbalastier, Cardiothoracic Surgeon at the new Fiona Stanley Hospital, has kindly popped a video camera on his head during a transplant, to give us an exciting insight into what happens.

Joining him is Professor Playford, keeping us up to date with the latest developments in right heart failure. Dr Playford has a primary interest in echocardiography and is an author to the well respected Textbook of Echocardiography by Otto.

Want to know more? Join us on Tuesday the 28th of July 2015!
