Clearly, the posts below do not represent ‘recent news’. However, after a 7 year break from blogging, and on the back of a complete website makeover, I will be posting again soon. My plan is to post at least once a week on something cardiovascular-related that has caught my eye. It might be an interesting article, news item or conference update. The key feature will be accessibility for non-specialists. If big words are needed then these will be explained. In the meantime, whilst waiting for the next post, please check out the new site design (www.cardiovascular.org).
