Pre-Nups for Physicians, ACC 2024 Late-Breakers

In This Episode

We speak with Gregg Stone, MD, (Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai), who presented findings at ACC 2024 from RELIEVE-HF, a randomized trial designed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of treating patients with heart failure with an interatrial shunt. The results are clear, so keep listening to hear his interpretation of the results. We next talk to, Javed Butler, MD, (Baylor Scott and White Research Institute), who presented results from the EMPACT-MI randomized trial, which examined treating patients with empagliflozin following a heart attack. The results add to our understanding of SGLT2 inhibitors and how they can impact major outcomes in a broad population of adults with heart failure, chronic kidney disease, or type 2 diabetes.

We also hear from regular contributor Dr. Medlaw (radiologist and medical malpractice attorney), who turns her attention to the harsh reality that the divorce rate when at least one spouse is a physician is >20% higher than in non-physician marriages. Is a pre-nuptial agreement a good idea? Dr. Medlaw explains all the aspects to consider.

Enjoy listening!
