Study by Dr. Paulo Pêgo Fernandes and colleagues receives award in Congress of Socesp


In the last Congress of the Cardiology Society of the State of São Paulo (SOCESP), held in São Paulo, SP, from April 29 to May 1, the study "Left cervical-thoracic sympathetic block by clamping: a new surgical treatment for systolic heart failure?", written by Germano Emílio Conceição Souza, Paulo M. Pêgo-Fernandes, Luiz Felipe Pinho Moreira and colleagues, received the "Best Applied Research Award Luiz Veneré Decourt".

The study that had already been highlighted at the last congress of the STS, in January of this year, aims to evaluate the feasibility and safety of the left cervical-thoracic sympathetic block by clipping via thoracoscopy in patients with systolic heart failure, in addition to explore its effect on the cardiovascular system. The study is ongoing and, up to now, 12 patients have been included. Partial results suggest that the procedure is feasible and safe, and could become a surgical alternative in systolic heart failure, requiring larger samples for evidence.

The award honors Professor Luiz Décourt, a pioneer of cardiology in Brazil, who was Professor of Clinical Medicine at Faculty of Medicine, University of São Paulo. He has published over 300 papers in national and international scientific journals and, within 40 years of academic career, he has trained thousands of cardiologists and researchers. In the 50s, he idealized the INCOR together with Professor Euryclides de Jesus Zerbini, a hospital that began operating in 1978. His work was marked by humanism, showing commitment and passion for medicine throughout his career. Professor Décourt died aged 95 in May 2007, leaving as his legacy a lesson in professionalism, dedication, uprightness of character and humanism.
