Dr. George Christakis is one of our Scientific Advisors, an Associate Scientist at Sunnybrook with Cardiac & Vascular Surgery.

Here's his comment on the Calgary complications story from CTV.

"You have to realize that there are complications with stents no matter where they are used. People drop dead of heart attacks when their stents in their hearts suddenly block off. You dont see cardiologists stop doing the procedure. The problem is everyone is quoting empirical data and trying to prove something (whether it is positive or negative). The only sure way of identifying effectiveness is through a prospective randomized trial."
