It’s that time of year again. The holiday season sneaks up quickly and before you know it, every weekend is filled with holiday gatherings, not to mention all of the delicious foods! While this is definitely a time to relax while enjoying the company of good friends and family (and yes, some indulgence), it is always important to set limits and ensure the season is a healthy one. For those at risk of conditions such as coronary artery disease, this is an especially important time to watch eating habits and activity level. Research shows that the rate of heart attack increases during the holiday season and can be associated with increased stress, overindulgence in fatty foods, and excess salt intake.

Though we’ve travelled back to the blustery New England fall weather, the thrill of the conference is still in the air. Nearly 12,000 people attended from across the globe, including a large contingent from Corindus. The Corindus team was not only in the booth, several of our team members were able to catch sessions throughout the week including a presentation given by Dr. Giora Weisz on the current status and future directions of robotic-assisted PCI and a presentation on Geographic Miss that highlighted CorPath given by Dr. Bezerra from University Hospital in Cleveland. While sessions began on Sunday, the exhibit hall did not open until Tuesday evening.
