#women with #endometriosis have a higher risk of #stroke

1. Endometriosis is a common cause of #pelvic #pain and is known to increase the risk of #coronary artery disease (CAD). A recent study looked at the association of endometriosis and stroke.
#MedTwitter #gynecologist
2. Women with laparoscopically confirmed endometriosis had a 34% greater risk of stroke as compared to those without a history of endometriosis.
3. Of the total association of endometriosis
with risk of stroke, the largest proportion was attributed to hysterectomy/oophorectomy (39% mediated) and hormone therapy (16% mediated).

The DISCHARGE trial in online on the NEJM and it confirms what we all experience every day using CCT in a proper manner. CCT is safer, reliable and allows better management of stable patients with suspected obstructive CAD as compared to invasive strategy.
The main observation that comes to my mind however is still the very low prevalence of patients with obstructive CAD (25%) in both arms (CT and ICA). This is well known from previous studies and it is related to the selection criteria adopted for referral, partly.
The fact that still we send for an invasive and costly examination (CAG/ICA) this huge number of patients is simply astonishing in 2022. Healthcare cannot be managed like this, especially in universal systems like Italy, Germany, UK, Canada,...

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, and prior programs are available for 🆓CE/#CME credit at
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 . . .

Sub-study of WISE @JACCJournals by @ahmedalbadrimd @lesleejshaw:

In women with signs & symptoms of ischemia
✅ low CFR (microvascular dysfunction) ➡️ ⬆️ major CV events
✅ endothelial dysfunction ➡️ ⬆️ angina hospitalization…
@emorywomenheart @venkmurthy Image
In this relatively large & very well-done study, 4 indices of coronary dz were invasively measured:

✅ CFR (adenosine): non-endo dependent CMD

✅ CBF (ACh): endo dependent CMD

✅ Nitro Δ CSA: non-endo dependent epicardial dz

✅ ACh Δ CSA: endo depedent epicardial dz Image
1️⃣ low CFR associated with ⬆️ MACE

2️⃣ low CBF not associated with MACE

3️⃣ impaired ACh dilatation assocaited with ⬆️ angina hospitalization

4️⃣ impaired NTG dilatation not associated with MACE

Did it really take us 40 years to show #Angioplasty works for what it was invented for?
