In this issue, we celebrate the accomplishments of our growing department, welcome new team members, and provide updates on upcoming events, clinical trials, and research initiatives. We are proud of the accomplishments of our department and are excited to share a few of our recent achievements, including the growth of the Aortic Diseases Center of Excellence, alternative treatment options for high risk patients with lung cancer, and the newest developments in extracorporeal mechanical oxygenation (ECMO). We also congratulate The UPMC Artificial Heart Program on 30 years of success with a continued focus on helping patients who feel that they are out of options for treating their heart failure. We provide an overview of the Pediatric Mechanical Circulatory Support Program and the challenges that accompany treating the pediatric heart failure patients. Finally, we highlight our success as the leading provider of robotic procedures and robotic training and our ability to provide hope and better options for our patients through minimally invasive procedures.
