🩸#Bleeding risk prediction tools have modest performance
🩸Bleeding risk iproportional to stroke risk, net benefit favours #antocoagulation
🩸Few reasons to withhold #OAC, even in frail, older adults
🩸Across spectrum of #bleeding risk in AF, #stroke risk is higher
🩸#DOACs preferred over warfarin in #nonvalvular #AF

(1/4) Being committed to their style of spreading continuous explicit fake reports, the #Azerbaijan'i MoD released a statement falsely accusing the Armenian detachments in shelling Azerbaijani positions overnight Sept 13-14.
(2/4) This is yet another #disinformation, which, as we are already convinced, is serving as a fake information background for their military aggression against sovereign territory of #Armenia.
(3/4) During the night the Azerbaijani #AF bombed both military and #civilian infrastructures with loitering munitions, and that intense artillery attacks began in the morning targeting military positions and border towns in the direction of #Jermuk and #VerinShorzha.

Medical Therapy for Functional #MR

#GDMT is the first step and prevails as the mainstay in the treatment of #FMR

This review addresses the medical Tx options for FMR Mx and highlight a targeted approach for each FMR category

#HeartFailure #VHDs… @CircHF
#GDMT plays a pivotal role in LV reverse remodeling (LVRR) in FMR and leads to reduction in severity and improved outcomes for both atrial and ventricular #FMR

#GDMTWorks #VHDs #HeartFailure
Studies report 28% to 50% reduction in grade of #FMR from baseline in patients receiving optimal or maximally tolerated doses of #GDMT (including diuretics) in both ischemic #cardiomyopathy and non-ischemic CMP

#EHRAtopicweek on “Esophageal injuries in #AF ablation”

I am very proud to share with you the 3rd episode of 🎙 "EHRA Cardio Talk - Keep the rhythm" The #EHRA_ESC podcast: Oesophagal injuries related to AF ablation 🎙with @EPDeneke & @DavidDuncker

#EHRA_Ecomm @escardio #EPeeps

Some publications from @EPDeneke about Esophageal injuries.
1⃣ a must read publication from 2017:

Esophagal perforation delayed diagnosis is associated w/ development of atrial-esophageal fistula & ⬆️mortality.

In this study, @EPDeneke assessed the S-Cath temperature probe consisting of 12 fast-response temp sensors on a S-shaped probe providing an ⬆️coverage of the esophagus. Even if ablation time was ⬇️ at post. wall, esophagal lesions were ↔️

1/24 This month’s #EHJCaseReports #tweetorial focuses on percutaneous left atrial appendage occlusion.

Is #LAAO the exact solution for preventing stroke & embolism in #AF pts who can’t tolerate #OAC?
Or, a new problem while seeking a solution?…
🎯 The rationale of #LAAO
🔸 In non-valvular #AF patients, 90% of thrombus is located in the #LAA
🔸 These thrombi embolise to the 🧠 & cause #stroke
🎯 Don't miss the ‘#EHRA_ESC #EAPCI expert consensus document on catheter-based #LAAO –an update’…
#LAA closure devices should be safe, efficent and easy to deploy.

📌 Currently available catheter-based devices for #LAAO have different principles.

A- Plug ➡️ Watchman
B- Pacifier ➡️ Amplatzer Amulet
C- Ligation ➡️ Lariat…

Buckin' #TouThao doesn't need any damned water if #GeorgeFloyd didn't get any air! We're having #DerrickChauvin's trial now, but you're not forgotten #Thao, you should've stopped the other 3 from #murdering #GeorgeFloyd, but you helped them! #ConvictThao!
At 09:30 #TouThao says he was taught #CPR at the police academy, recertified every two yrs. Why didn't he pull that skill out of his ass during #TheMurderOfGeorgeFloyd? The first thing they teach you is to take a pulse, did he take #GeorgeFloyd's pulse?
This meeting takes place in August 2020, it's warm in Minnesota in August, and #TouThao is there voluntarily, he is not under arrest, so all five of these men are #CovidIdiots because they aren't having this meeting outside and with masks on.

Armando este hilo 🧵...🤦‍♂️
Sepan que las preguntas de los periodistas en #México 🇲🇽fueron más de una, y para #AMLO y #Beto, pero voy a ordenar.
La nariz de Pinocho 🤥 de Fernández con el relato del miente, miente, miente...que algo quedará, fue fatal y tragicómico, y ya verán además de la gravedad de hablar “de más” (política doméstica de #Arg 🇦🇷)
Empecemos. Igual guardo el crudo sin editar.

Las preguntas del primero:
Las preguntas también las voy ordenando porque además Don @lopezobrador_ (AMLO) es bastante aburrido.
Y acá empieza a responder y a tomar temperatura 🤒 #Beto🌡 ... Y así se empezó a poner lindo (en realidad es un mitómano)

This cluster randomised controlled trial found that opportunistic screening in primary care did not increase the detection of #AFib compared with usual care in patients aged 65 & over @bmj_latest…
Yet the findings are in contrast to the SAFE study which showed that opportunistic screening for #atrialfibrillation over a year detected more new diagnoses than usual care.

This population-based, multicentre, 10-year study of the use of oral #anticoagulants for #stroke prophylaxis for ~0.5M patients with #AFib found that their prescription for patients with #AF at high risk of stroke increased by nearly 60%.
Between 2009 & 2018, 3352 individual General Practices provided a total of 5968 uploads into the GRASP-AF database. From the first upload per General Practice, there were an estimated 450 518 patients with #AFib from a total of 24 644 210 people.
Over the study period the prevalence of AF was 1.8% [95% CI 1.7–1.9%], which increased from 1.6% (1.5–1.7%) in 2009 to 2.4% (2.3–2.5%) in 2018 (P-trend < 0.001). Image

I am looking for a program &/or resources that help teach #Somali to our children.

Like lots of 2nd gen ppl the #language our parents spoke is now firmly my 2nd language. I'm interested in ideas that promote #multilingualism, feel free to share & tag others. #online #clubs Image
@Poetic_Nomad @SomaliKids @thesailorsgirl @MohammedAArtan @numbiarts @AliAbdi_ @SamOfSomalia @HannaAli @Rooble2009 @Gulaid1 @robjama I sometimes feel that passing on a #language is harder for us 2nd & 3rd gen ppl. Although we were born & raised outside 'wadankii', the dynamics are different for our youth now. Interested to know what the educators think?

#Somali #Identity @MualimMohamed @ashahodan #teach
Thank Q #SomaliTwitter, I learned a lot about this today through conversations both on & offline. There is a lot of talent in our community, enough to design solutions to this & other challenges. My parents came to UK in the 60's, I grew up in the 80/90's. @WaaberiPhone 1/2

Wir werden heute im laufe des Tages uns mit dem Antrag der #AfD zum Thema #Antifa beschäftigen. Denn trotz Kritik aus allen Fraktionen, Ärger zwischen allen Fraktionen, hat sich kein Mensch mit dem Antrag beschäftigt. #AfD
Warum die #AfD diesen Antrag stellte? Nun, Strategie, der AfD geht es nicht nur um den Kampf um die Straße, nicht um die Köpfe, (Michael Kühnen/AN) sondern um die Köpfe im Parlament. Wie bekomme ich Mehrheiten? #NoAfD #Antifa
Tja wie bekommt man einfach Mehrheiten? Wie andere Parlamentarier? In dem man Positionen der CDU und FDP (Linke Politik/Antifa=Böse) als Antrag einbringt. Und die CDU und FDP haben sich angeln lassen. #AfD #NoAfD #Antifa

So a few people have asked me about my reaction to @DoloresHuerta endorsing @KamalaHarris for her Presidential campaign in 2020. My thoughts on the matter and given with as much respect as I can give, as a person with Mexican family, and not quite fluent in Spanish. #DesculpaMe
1) @DoloresHuerta is a titan in Central Valley politics and for Mexican-Americans everywhere. She is often overlooked in comparison with #CesarChavez, but my understanding is that Dolores was more of the logistics of the @UFWF while #Cesar provided the #Vision. Sounds familiar!
2) In fact, my own Grandmother (mother’s mother) says that she marched with both @DoloresHuerta and #CesarChavez in the 1970’s. I recall the last time I asked her about her stories, I told her that I heard Dolores was fierce #AF. She concurred unequivocally.
