I found these 10 short video series from OncLive very useful. Each video ranges from 2 – 5 minutes long and is very easy to watch and digested. Not only a succinct primer on (so-called) carcinoid syndrome but also an update on the evolving approaches. And the series also includes information on Hedinger Syndrome (carcinoid heart disease) which can be caused by the effects of this syndrome.
The panel includes some ‘big hitter’ names in our scientific community including:
Satya (Nanu) Das, MD, MSCI (Oncologist)
Jerome Zacks, MD (Cardiologist)
Rodney Pommier, MD (Surgeon)
