As someone just getting started in IC, this talk by @jaygirimd was inspiring. #VTE/#PERT is such an exciting space with rapid development & study 🙌🏽

(Also shoutout to my mentor @GoldbergJBCTMD who’s work is displayed in Dr Giri’s slides)

My takeaways, a🧵:
#Fellows2023 ImageImageImage
🔹Risk stratification and patient selection is key.

🔸Risk scores may not accurately stratify younger patients

🔹Full risk assessment has to include with the bedside eval w/ imaging + lab markers as adjunctive data

🔸Be on the lookout for normotensive shock

#Fellows2023 (2/6)
🔹Patients can be sick - upfront MCS with ECMO may be the first treatment needed in tackling high risk PE

🔸Contralateral arterial access during thrombectomy in case urgent MCS is needed

🔹always start with a RHC to establish severity of disease

🚨🚨🚨New @EuroRespSoc @escardio #PulmonaryHypertension guidelines 2022
There is a lot of new guidance, this is just a short thread to begin with the most notable changes...

Let's go! 🧵 👇👇👇 (1/10)
1⃣New definition:
📌Same mPAP threshold as Nice 2018 (mPAP> 20 mmHg)
📌Lower PVR threshold (PVR >2 WU)! 👈
📌No more DPG to differentiate Ipc & Cpc
📌Re-introduction of #ExercisePH in definition!👈
2⃣Diagnostic algorithm:
📌Fast track for referral to a #PH centre at any point of warning signs or #PAH or #CTEPH suspected
📌Individualised route for suspected #LungDisease but rapid cross-referral if necessary
📌If eventually PAH/CTEPH suspected, follow to tables 😵‍💫

New in @ATSBlueEditor, the culmination of over 4 years of work in the @bradleymaron lab, in which we identify that #NEDD9 is a hypoxia-regulated pulmonary endothelial protein that directly binds activated platelets to promote pulmonary thrombosis.…

The @bradleymaron lab previously discovered that the malignancy protein #NEDD9 promotes endothelial fibrosis by regulating collagen synthesis in human pulmonary artery endothelial cells (HPAECs), which could be targeted to inhibit #PAH in vivo.…

As a pro-metastatic protein, #NEDD9 interacts with pro-thrombotic cell types, & it was shown to be ⬆️ via #HIF1α in cancer cells to promote migration. We hypothesized that #NEDD9 is ⬆️ by hypoxia in HPAECs ➡️ pathogenic platelet-EC adhesion.…

#Pulmonary Hypertension (pHTN) can really take your breath away!

For today's #MTC, Chief @photon_ick, PGY3 Dr. Armando Martinez, & #CTEPH expert Dr. Demos Papamatheakis reviewed a super cool case of a legit #SPY diagnosed with pHTN & CTEPH, flown to #UCSD for management!
1. pHTN is increased pressure in the #pulmonaryarteries
2. Most common symptoms include: EXERTIONAL #dyspnea, fatigue, pleuritic chest pain, and even #hemoptysis🩸
3. It's typically diagnosed on #ECHO showing dilated arteries, right❤️strain, & elevated RV systolic pressure!
4. There are 5 #WHO Classes of pHTN, distinguished based on physiology and treatment options:
1⃣ Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
2⃣ pHTN 2/2 LV failure
3⃣ pHTN 2/2 Respiratory/Lung disease
5⃣ Other causes Image

CTEPH (a thread)

One of the best learning cases of my residency training at Temple with @PForfiaPHDOC , I recently presented this case at a CTCV conference.

HPI: female pt in her 40s, hx recurrent PE/DVT, IVC filter, on anticoagulation, presents with SOB.
