1) Welcome to an #accredited #tweetorial on a unique emerging (in Ph3 now) option for specifically reversing the #antiplatelet effects of #ticagrelor: it's #bentracimab. Expert faculty is antithrombotic agent reversal guru @md_pollack of @UMMCnews, working to create #AHealthierMS
2) This program is intended for #healthcare professionals and is supported by an educational grant from PhaseBio Pharmaceuticals. Faculty disclosures are listed at cardiometabolic-ce.com/disclosures/, and prior programs are available for 🆓CE/#CME credit at cardiometabolic-ce.com.
3) It is an unfortunate fact of life that one cannot prescribe #anticoagulant or #antiplatelet (together, #antithrombotic) therapy without increasing a patient's #bleedingrisk. That is why it should be an individualized risk:benefit decision, ideally . . .

@ACCinTouch @AHAScience @JACCJournals @CircAHA 2020 VHD guidelines. Here's a series of tweet-synopsis. First: #TAVR and AS. Key wasn't just Figure 3 but Table 14 where it highlights specifics favoring SAVR vs TAVR. To me it's informative. @AATSHQ @STS_CTsurgery @EACTS @escardio
#3: Primary MR: TEER (E2E repair) #MitraClip is now Class 2A in high or prohibitive pts with "favorable" anatomy. Asymptomatic but LV dysfn DMR is Class 1 for surgery if repair possible @GAilawadiMD @DrMoritzWvB @TsuyoshiKaneko1 @AATSHQ @STS_CTsurgery @ACCinTouch @AHAScience

Readdressing the validity of repeat revascularization as an outcome measure in #PCI Vs #CABG. For readers in a hurry:
1) visit @cardiomicsclub cardiomics.club/2019/12/20/rea…
2) go to @JACCJournals and listen podcast onlinejacc.org/content/74/25/…
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
