As I delve further into the Syntax trial, (in preparation for a presentation at work):

Mark Midei was charged with another 175 counts of unneccessary stenting this week..

The Syntax trial is a great example of the ‘big lie’ of the easy fix – and the publicity spin, as explained on this blog by (what appears to be ) one of the last honest cardiologists..  As I slosh through reams and reams of printed articles, as well as on-line stories, and links to journals on the Syntax trial and the results – it becomes readily apparent – that it is almost impossible to find an honest, and unbiased report of actual syntax results (particularly since cardiologists are doing most of the writing.)  Cardiac surgeons – listen up!!  You know the truth about outcomes with stents versus cabg (surgery) – you see it every single day.. But stop sitting there smugly, and self-assuredly, so certain that the truth will out..

The truth is out, but it’s so muddied as to be unrecognizable.  Start writing your own research papers and defend yourself (and your patients) from this watershed of biased reporting.. Stenting is EASY but it’s NOT effective, and bypass surgery remains the standard of practice and the best treatment for longevity.. No propaganda can change that – but surgeons can’t lie back and rest on their laurels..

Dr.  DeMaio escapes..

and the most infamous cardiologist in America.
