Podcast episode 8: Coronary Artery Anomalies and HRT

In this week's podcast, Peter and Stuart chat about coronary artery anomalies.

There are many different types of coronary artery anomalies such as an interarterial course and a coronary artery fistula. Peter and Stuart discuss a couple of recent patients who had a fistula, and were diagnosed thanks to a CT Coronary Angiography (CTCA) scan.

And, prompted by a recent patient enquiry about the risk of cardiovascular disease when using hormone replacement therapy (HRT), they also discuss the 5 things to consider when it comes to HRT and CVD.
