This Episode I’m talking about heart disease, and the amazing story of self-experimentation behind the first human cardiac catheterisation. That’s Nobel prize winner, Werner Forssmann and how he rebelled against his seniors and conducted a risky proof of concept that became the foundation of an entirely new field of medicine: Interventional Cardiology. I’ve also been talking to Dr Andrew Flapan, consultant cardiologist, to find out more about interventional cardiology today and where it might be heading in the future. Here’s a couple of books that cover Forssmann’s experiments in a bit more detail: The Man Who Touched His Own Heart – Experiments on Myself - And one on self-experimentation in Medicine in general: Who Goes First? - A good leaflet explaining PCI for patients - TAVI - British Heart Foundation for information on treatments for heart conditions - Follow us on Twitter @anamesiscast Or find us on Please give us a rating on iTunes if you’ve liked this episode, it all helps!
