#LAAOS III: Left Atrial Appendage Occlusion Study III

Take home 🏠 message:
Among patients with AF undergoing cardiac surgery, surgical LAA occlusion reduces ischemic stroke by 33%, compared to no occlusion.

#ACC21 late-breakers🧵
1/Antiplatelets: Let's start with #aspirin
❌ADAPTABLE :Aspirin 325 mg vs 81 mg in ASCVD pts
No difference in death/ MI/ stroke/major bleeding
💎pragmatic trial: EHR-identified pts
💎significant dose switching in 325 mg group…
✅Host Exam: Aspirin vs Clopidogrel in chronic Maintenance monotherapy after #PCI w/ DES
#Clopidogrel monotherapy reduced composite of death, non-fatal MI, stroke, ACS re-admission, BARC >=3 bleeding, compared to #aspirin monotherapy.
❓East Asian paradox…

In pts w/ no major events in 1st month after index PCI, de-escalation of DAPT from #ticagrelor to #clopidogrel is superior to tica-only DAPT in terms of net clinical benefit, with

Essentials of Stable Ischemic Heart Disease

♦️Plaque Characteristics & Progression
♦️Choosing From Imaging Toolbox
♦️Perils of Polypharmacy
♦️Who & When To Revascularize
♦️Overview of Guidelines

🧵on this great @ACCinTouch session from today #ACC21 #ACCMedStudent
1/Plaque Progression #ACC21

Non-atherosclerotic intimal lesions➡️progressive atheroscl. lesions (fibroatheroma)➡️lesions w/ acute thrombi

Plaque rupture = lesion growth
Lumen area maintained till 40% narrowing
Narrowing beyond 40% occurs w/ plaque rupture+intraplaque hemorrhage
2/Plaque Characteristics #ACC21

Coronary artery calcification begins as micro-calcification➡️fragment➡️sheet➡️nodular

Stable plaque?
🔸Associated with DM, HTN, smoking
🔸Most common is fibrocalcific plaque (mostly sheet Ca)

Unstable plaque is mostly fragmented Ca

Dr. Lantin giving a Top 10 review of #ACCACPC research in 2020, a truly crazy year! #ACC21
🔟 No mention of 2020 could possibly ignore the effects of the global pandemic on research, patient care, and the way we share knowledge. #COVID19 #ACC21
9⃣ Imaging indices correlate with prognosis.
- Transplant/VAD-free survival correlates with MPI-DTI z-score
- Left atrial strain correlates with PCWP and helps identify graft rejection/failure

When sacubitril/valsartan crushed it in 2014 in PARADIGM-HF for HFrEF, there were a few voices of criticism.

At #ACC21 the PARADISE-MI of entresto vs ramipril in post-MI patients w heart failure failed to show significance.

My summary…

The specific message is obviously that based on this study, sac/val has no role over ACE/ARB in post-MI patients with heart failure and LV dysfunction.

We cannot ignore costs of care. And low BP was worse in the ARNI group.
The larger message--there is nearly always a larger message--is that we may have over-estimated this drug class.

It missed significance now in 2 of 3 outcome trials.

Re PARADIGM, we know large effect sizes often don't replicate

Of interest to the #CHD and #ACHD community, Matthew Gillespie of @HeartCare4Kids, a leader in transcatheter pulmonary valves, gave an update on the state of the art over in the Right Sided Valve Interventions session, and as he rightly points out, it all started with CHD! #ACC21
Who needs pulmonary valve replacement?
👉~40K babies born w/ #CHD each yr
👉~22% have RVOT abnormalities
👉For those w/ RV-PA conduits we've had Melody/Sapien valves
👉For the 85% of RVOT pts w/o conduits with PR, these usu won't work due to dilated/distorted/dynamic RVOTs
Work that started ~2004 with Phil Bonhoeffer culminated in first-in-man implantation of a self-expanding RVOT valve reported in 2010 with several devices now available incl. the Medtronic Harmony devices and the Edwards Alterra combined with their Sapien valve in the US. #ACC21

Here are a couple of #ACC21 posters on pregnancy outcomes for women with heart disease, one from @LLUHealth on #CHD with RVOT dysfunction and one from @HopkinsMedicine on valvular heart disease, worth checking out. @doctorpianist @AllisonGHaysMD @kalamityjack #CardioObstetrics
In @abbykhanmd's talk Saturday, she highlighted three commonly used risk models for predicting adverse outcomes in pregnant women with heart disease: the modified WHO criteria, CARPREG II, and ZAHARA. #ACC21
Generally speaking, left-sided obstructive lesions (AS/MS) are known to impart the highest risk, while pulmonary valve disease and aortic regurgitation are regarded as relatively low risk and MR/TR fall somewhere in between. #ACC21

#ACCMedStudent, it's Day 2 of #ACC21! Benefits of virtual meeting⏪old sessions available onDemand.

Great @ACCinTouch session yesterday on Advanced Heart Failure Therapies, ending w/ debate on Transplant vs. LVAD! #ACCHFT

🧵on some take-home points from the 6 presentations
1/ Moving Beyond NYHA Class #ACC21
Vague w/ wide inter & intra observer variability
Utility breaks down in advanced HF

🌟Reclassifying advanced HF: INTERMACS Profiles (lower score = sicker) helps prognosis/triage

🔑Assign profile after identifying features of advanced HF
2/ Cardiac Transplantation #ACC21

♦️ Strategies to expand cardiac donor pool➡️ donation after circulatory death (DCD) - first performed in Duke Dec 2019

Ensuring diversity -

Come listen to these wonderful talks in how we strengthen diversity -

I love the advice to have cross professional recruiting, e.g. include other #ACCCVT in recruiting physicians and vice-versa.

Make interprofessional practice a baseline. Implement this early and foundational to curricula.

Make it "a thing" to utilize the strengths of team members in care.

Respect the title! All have earned theirs. Introduce by title in front of the patient

Nice work #STRENGTHTrial team! #OM3

First - primary endpoints not achieved. This is a sub-study.

Questions attempted to address:
- Could higher EPA explain favorable outcomes?

- Could DHA component have exactly counterbalanced benefits of EPA?

Recall #STRENGTHtrial randomized 13,000+. Similar MACE outcomes to #REDUCEIT.

STRENGTH sub-study looks at top tertile achieved EPA and DHA compared to corn oil.'

-Interesting that high intensity statin use in top tertile was 10% less than other tertiles and corn oil group.

-LDL-C was 7 mg/dL higher in top tertile group than next highest (T1)

-Achieved EPA (443%) and DHA (68%) is c/w with dose 2200 mg, 800 mg respectively

🌟Future of Dyslipidemia Management🌟
🧵on this great session from #ACC21 #ACCMedStudent

1/ Team-based approach to improve CV outcomes
🔸pharmacist interventions reduce LDL-C
🔸sessions with dietitian improves lipids &📉costs
🔸Multi-D lipid clinic⬆️guideline-directed treatment
2/ Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH)
♦️ Genetically inherited, autosomal dominant
♦️ LDL-C >190 mg/dL
♦️ Family hx of premature coronary disease

Presence of corneal arcus (ring of cholesterol precipitate) or tendon xanthoma (>8mm Achilles tendon) before age 45 highly suggestive
3/ Genetic Testing for pts at risk due to family history or w/ FH phenotype

🌟Up to 30% of patients with very high LDL-C have high polygenic risk score (PRS) vs. single gene mutation🌟

#Tweetorial #CMD #ACC21

#CMD shares similar RFs w epicardial atherosclerosis (traditional ASCVD RFs) & is associated with several biomarkers of inflammation, oxidative stress & coagulation

#Tweetorial #CMD #ACC21

There is significant overlap between #CMD & epicardial disease

Large number of patients w/ #CMD also have epicardial atherosclerosis (obstructive or non-obstructive) & epicardial endothelial dysfunction

#Tweetorial #CMD #ACC21

In our IVUS study:
✅ Most patients with #CMD had significant plaque burden
✅ Patients with #CMD had higher plaque burden & more diffuse atherosclerosis as compared to patients w/o CMD

#CMD #Tweetorial

⚡ Coronary Microvascular Dysfunction ⚡


📌 What Is #CMD
📌 Why Is #CMD Important❓

Based on my #ACC21 #ACCImaging presentation
#Tweetorial #CMD #ACC21

Let’s start by talking about angina

✅ Angina w/o obstructive CAD is very prevalent 

#Tweetorial #CMD #ACC21

✅ Angina ➡ poor prognosis
✅ Angina with no obstructive CAD = ⬆ risks of CV events compared to no angina, even after adjusting for traditional RFs & co-morbidities

Starting off the Nuts & Bolts of Pregnancy and Congenital Heart Disease session with a pre-test question... #CardioObstetrics #ACC21 #ACHD
Keep this chart in mind. Pregnancy is a prolonged period of cardiovascular stress with increased cardiac output, plasma volume, and heart rate. Things get really interesting during labor/delivery with acute increases in BP and CO. Image
Various risk scores available: Modified WHO classification, CARPREG II, ZAHARA score. But clinical experience is extremely important since CHD patients are very heterogeneous and may not be well-represented in studies ImageImageImage
