In 2014, cardiothoracic anesthesiology again generated high-quality scientific work published in highly regarded journals. Our specialty continues to make significant strides in the creation and implementation of protocols to improve outcomes in our patients, which undoubtedly contribute to a safer hospital environment for patients and employees alike. Another theme that stirred a lot of interest in the past year is the search for patient-centered treatment plans. Even though we are still some time away from truly personalized medicine, our specialty starts to ask and answer exciting questions: Would we treat patient A any different from patient B if their genetic profiles were easily accessible? Could individualized treatment choices influence our patients' immediate and long-term outcomes? For this review, we selected a sample of relevant contributions to the field of cardiothoracic anesthesiology in 2014 with potential impact on our clinical routine.
