Il Partito Comunista Italiano ribadisce il proprio impegno nello schierarsi contro la deriva bellicista e violenta di #NATO, #UE e del governo #Draghi.
In occasione del #25aprile, Festa della #Liberazione, vogliamo ricordare i valori della #Resistenza #antifascista che sono stati impressi nella #Costituzione repubblicana, nella forma del ripudio di ogni forma di #guerra.

A causa degli #aumenti di costo delle materie prime conseguenti alle #sanzioni alla #Russia il 16% delle #aziende italiane ha già ridotto o chiuso la #produzione, con previsioni ancora più drammatiche.⬇️ Image
Come a #Torino, dove si stima un 30% di #imprese costrette a chiudere e/o interrompere la produzione, in #Lombardia, con più di 350 aziende chiuse, in #Veneto, dove si prepara una crisi agroalimentare, o in Umbria, dove #Colussi chiude e mette 300 persone in cassa integrazione.⬇️
Come sempre, a pagare le scelte scellerate dei governi sono le lavoratrici e i lavoratori, non certo amministratori delegati e parlamentari, che hanno la barca all’asciutto. ⬇️

When you counsel ICU patients (>65yo)/their proxies before receiving a tracheostomy (‘trach’) and a gastrostomy (‘PEG’), what do you estimate to be the cohort’s 90-day mortality (day 0 = hospital admission)?
When you counsel ICU patients (>65yo)/their proxies before proxies before receiving a tracheostomy (‘trach’) and a gastrostomy (‘PEG’), what do you estimate to be the median number of hospital free days out of 90days in this cohort?
A🧵:When I was a fellow, we had to do rotations through a unit at MGH called the RACU - the Respiratory Acute Care Unit – basically a chronic vent unit after patients got trach/PEGs. @galbamd and @almoskow remember the heartbreak and drama in this unit all too well

1/8 Now that the poll has closed, I'd like to disclose that I'm with the minority (No) on this one. Rationale summarized in this thread 👇

#pci #training #appsec #swsec

cc: @shehackspurple @bilcorry @robertauger @cigitalgem
2/8 Note: My position is mostly for large enterprises - especially the ones that operate in different sectors/countries (jurisdictions) & thus are subject to multiple compliance mandates & regulations. But, one can philosophically embrace this approach for other enterprises too.
3/8 First up, if you are subject to various compliance regulations and standards, it is best to make sure that your internal security standards account for them all so that you can present a unified set of security requirements to product/engineering. No need to mention "PCI".

Su @Wikipedia c'è scritto che Giorgio #Napolitano nel 1978 fu il primo del #PCI a ricevere un visto per recarsi negli #USA. FALSO..come dimostra #Wikileaks ci furono altri comunisti italiani prima di lui e anche Segr Gen PC di #Spagna #SantiagoCarrillo… Image
Inoltre Giorgio #Napolitano #PCI si reca negli #USA 2 settimane dopo il rapimento del Pres Consiglio Aldo #Moro...
D'altronde, già nel 1974, autorevoli membri del #PCI incontrarono il #deepstate #USA alla #Trilateral1974 a Roma..

Our most recent analysis of PROGRESS-CTO equipment
use, building on previous work by @ArisKaratasakis et al


Pilot 200/Fielder XT remain most common antegrade GWs but %⬇️due to quick adoption of newer GWs such as Gaia 3rd.

Torquable microcatheters (Turnpike) are the most commonly used ones. Success rates when a microcatheter is used have ⬆️⬆️

Retrograde approach:

Sion was the most commonly used guidewire for collateral crossing.

Pilot 200 the most commonly used for CTO crossing.

1. rispondo a chi mi ha criticato sul cablo del 1978 in cui #Montanelli dice alla diplomazia USA: meglio un #Pinochet che un governo del #PCI. Il cablo originale è qui (inglese):… è stato desecretato dalle stesse autorità USA e ripubblicato da #WikiLeaks
2. la critica che mi è stata fatta privatamente è la seguente: lei difende la #privacy e poi diffonde il cablo di un giornalista che parla confidenzialmente con una sua fonte?
3. il giornalista #Montanelli NON parlava con una sua fonte,parlava con diplomazia della più grande potenza mondiale,che ha OBBLIGHI di trasparenza. La conversazione #Montanelli -diplomatici USA è del 1978:Dipartimento Stato l'ha desecretata dopo ben 36 ANNI

Features of #COVID19 @ACCinTouch #CCAACC
🔹fever predominant feature
🔹cough (less often productive)
🔹cough presents on discharge (Lancet paper)
🔹 more than pneumonia
🔹 abnormal coagulation: ⬆️ d-dimer so anticoag needed
@TheLancet @Drroxmehran @CMichaelGibson @hmkyale
Rapid deterioration seen quite often. Cases below demonstrate this: #COVID19
Discussion of this dilemma of ACEI and ARBs: question still remains. We don’t have evidence to stop these and shouldn’t yet.
🔹48% have HTN, less with HTN who survive (~20%)
🔹limited data to say stop anti-RAS
🔹 need studies

Drs @SukhNijjer, @jerd10 and @RicardoPetraco. What are your views on @DavidLBrownMD fallacies of FFR?

As a budding interventional cardiologist, I like to hear all opinions and sides to the story :)
“In conclusion, FFR in isolation is of no proven clinical value in the evaluation of patients with suspected ischemia. The ESC guidelines continue to promote an outdated paradigm for the evaluation of suspected ischemia that focuses on the focal epicardial stenosis.”
The 4 fallacies

1/4 - The first fallacy is the foundational premise of FFR that ischemia caused by a focal obstructive epicardial coronary stenosis is on the direct pathway to death or MI and therefore should be a target of revascularization

Readdressing the validity of repeat revascularization as an outcome measure in #PCI Vs #CABG. For readers in a hurry:
1) visit @cardiomicsclub…
2) go to @JACCJournals and listen podcast…
3) read this thread! (Laziest!)
Repeat revasc has been used in multiple #PCI Vs #CABG RCTs, consistently favoring CABG, making composite outcomes mostly influenced by repeat revasc in many scenarios. Also, repeat revasc has been cited as (at least part of) the justification for recommending CABG over PCI
However, repeat revasc (alone, no associated MI) has many clinical and methdological limitations warranting deep understanding for an appropriate appraisal, summarized in this slide. First one is confounding by indication: repeat revasc is indicated, does not happen spontaneously

(other names Wellens' sign, Wellens' warning, Wellens' waves):
is a pattern of deeply inverted or biphasic T waves in V2-3, which is highly specific for a critical stenosis of the left anterior descending artery (LAD) ImageImage
3.📍de Winter sign📍
-ECG abnormality described by de Winter et al. in 1998
-Characterized by 1-3 mm of ST-depression with upright, symmetrical T-waves
-Suspicious for proximal occlusion of the LAD
-Recognized as a STEMI equivalent by Rokos et al. in 2010 Image
