Non trad chances help
Hi everyone. I’m looking for some help and recommendations for my possible options. I graduated with a BS in Psychology in May of 2018. I took the mcat after graduation in July and received a 501 on the exam. It was the first time I had taken it with only one month of prep. I decided to put off applying to medical school and started working full time and was planning on retaking the mcat and applying in 2019 but my dad had a heart attack that year and I didn’t feel like I would be focused...

1) I've been reading very well the article on Wiki air embolism , and it's not clear to me how can a bubble that inserted by syringe to the artery of the arm, reach to the heart or the brain and damage them. the blood flow is just in opposite direction (from the heart to the tissue in case of artery). 2) The article there states: "Gas embolism into an artery is a more serious matter than in a vein, because a gas bubble...

Clinical question of the week: should RBBB be an indication for primary PCI?
In a patient with symptoms suggestive of acute myocardial infarction, a new-onset left bundle branch block (LBBB) is considered an indication for reperfusion therapy i.e. primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) or thrombolysis. In contrast, a new-onset of right bundle branch block is not considered as an indication for administration of reperfusion therapy in this context. The question arises:  (Source: Doc2Doc BMJ Cardiology)

MRCP Part 1 practice question from OnExamination: bradycardia, hypotension, and ST elevation
A 56-year-old man presents to the Emergency department with an inferior myocardial infarction. He has a history of smoking and hypertension and is a poor attendee at the GP surgery. On initial admission he is hypotensive and bradycardic, with clear inferior ST elevation. He is taken to the catheter lab and stented. You are asked to see him a few hours later as he is persistently hypotensive with poor urine output. He has remained pain free since his stenting. On examination his BP is 90/50 mmHg, his pulse is 69, he has an elevated JVP, but his chest is clear. Investigations show Haemoglobin 140 ...

An end to the routine use of manual thrombectomy in STEMI?
Earlier this month the results of long awaited TOTAL trial were presented at the ACC meeting and simultaneously published in NEJM. TOTAL is the largest randomised trial to date which investigated the routine upfront manual thrombectomy with PCI alone in STEMI. 10,732 patients with STEMI undergoing primary PCI were randomised. The primary outcome was a composite of death from cardiovascular causes, recurrent myocardial infarction, cardiogenic shock, or NYHA class IV heart failure within 180 days. The key safety outcome was stroke within 30 days. Manual aspiration thrombectomy was associated with lower rates of incomple...

A large cohort study suggests that aspirin prophylaxis only benefits people with a prior cardiovascular event
Conclusions In patients with stable coronary artery disease and hypertension, aspirin use was associated with reduced risk for adverse cardiovascular outcomes among those with prior ischemic events. Among patients with no prior ischemic events, aspirin use was not associated with a reduction in risk. COMMENT: The determining the risk/benefit ratio of prophylactic aspirin use for the prevention of cardiovascular events has become a complicated issue.  The current recommendations from the CDC http://www.cdc.gov/heartdisease/aspirin.htm recommend aspirin prophylaxis in those with prior cardiovascular events.  Th...

Diagnosing and treating MI in women - a paper to change practice
There has been a lot of publicity for this BMJ cohort study of 1126 patients presenting with “suspected acute coronary syndrome” to the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary over a three month period. The use of high sensitivity troponin testing made little difference to the diagnosis rate in men but doubled the number of women diagnosed with myocardial infarction. This is an important and well reported study and I think it calls for an immediate change in practice followed by a series of further studies. I think we are still some way short of knowing how best to diagnose and treat MI in women. (Source: Doc2Doc BMJ Cardiology)

What is the future of "Triple Therapy" after coronary stenting?
Identifying the optimal regimen for antiplatelet therapy in patients requiring long-term anticoagulation following coronary stenting is an area that has traditionally been understudied. Although all major guidelines recommend (limited) triple therapy  in this situation, these recommendations are either result of expert consensus or are largely based on observational data. The WOEST trial was an open-labelled randomised trial and compared dual therapy (a combination of clopidogrel and vitamin K antagonist) with  triple therapy (Aspirin, clopidogrel and vitamin K antagonist) in patients undergoing coronary stent...

We are a group of young entrepreneurs, currently taking part in Harvard Business School program "Innovating in Heathcare" and under its auspices we are trying to solve the problem of miscommunication between patients and cardiologists. According to various publications and researches, despite multiple tools and efforts to convey information to patients in an understandable way, there are still significant problems with post-appointment compliance resulting in readmissions and complications what costs billions o...
