    I know the CTS topic has been beat to death on this board. I was wondering what some of the senior members thought about the current/future practice of general thoracic. I'm pretty interested but wanted to get the input from some different people than those I am used to talking to.

    People still smoke and drink, so the oncologic cases will continue to be there. The problem you face is that many of the cardiac surgeons are going back to a thoracic practice and the job market is becoming more saturated.
