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

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 . . .

Thread #Ich wünsche euch ein gutes Neues Jahr. (Jahresrückblick 1)

Warum machen wir das eigentlich nur zur Jahreswende? Wir wünschen Menschen die uns wichtig sind da etwas gutes. Warum eigentlich nicht auch unter dem Jahr? Und vielleicht auch öfter? Oder auch mal (1/5)
positives Feedback geben? Mich beschäftigen offenbar andere Dinge als die meisten aber die Frage ist ja wohl legitim.

Wo sind wir nur gelandet? Haben wir durch unsere Politik das "immer mehr, immer härter" so verinnerlicht, dass wir es nur noch als "Brauchtum" (2/5)
betrachten, ein gutes neues Jahr zu wünschen, es aber vielleicht gar nicht mehr ernst zu meinen? Dass es uns lästig erscheint, da neue Jahr in 100e SMS zu wünschen nur damit der Empfänger nicht schlecht von uns denkt?

Die operative und tatsächliche Haltung (3/5)

✅1,5% of cerebral #SVD are #monogenic disorders
✅AR, AD or X-linked
☝🏼Absence of family history doesn't rule out diagnosis because of
👉de novo mutation
👉reduced expression or
👉incomplete penetrance

When to #suspect?🕵️‍♀️

✅early onset stroke without vascular RFs
✅systemic features and neuroimaging of an specific monogenic disorder
✅consanguinity
✅negative work up for other causes of SVD

Ich war gerade bei Netto.
Der mit dem Hund.
Die Verkäuferinnen und Verkäufer laufen ohne Masken durch den Laden, viele Kunden ebenso.
Keinen interessiert es mehr.

An der Kasse hängt ein Aushang, dass eine Maske getragen werden muss.

Ich spreche den Kassierer darauf an.
1/3
#Ich *zeige auf den Aushang: Gilt das hier nicht mehr?
#Kassierer: Ähm. 🤷‍♂️ Ja. Hmm. Für die Kunden halt.
#I: Sieht nicht so aus, hier rennen viele ohne Masken rum und keinen interessiert es.
#K: Ja, na ja. 🤷‍♂️
#I: Und, dass Sie andere infizieren können, ist Ihnen egal?
#K: 🤷‍♂️
2/3
#I: Das ist doch scheiße!
#K: 🤷‍♂️
Ich bezahle und er quatscht mit dem nächsten Kunden - der keine Maske trägt.

Da haben die Einzelhändler Angst vor dem Onlinehandel und dann liefern sie selbst Argumente dafür, anstatt zu punkten!
Ich verstehe das nicht!

1) What was "hurling" like in medieval Ireland (...or what game did Cú Chulainn play?). A twitter 'lecture' with images, texts and weblinks, during the Covid-19 lockdown #camogie #hurling #medieval #Ireland If you're interested, more detail and sources at: …ievalarchaeologyproject.wordpress.com/2016/09/02/hur…
2) Who am I? Prof Archaeology @ucdarchaeology son of Clare hurler, once upon a time Wicklow hurler (I like to mention that often) from @ValleymountGAA & now @KevinsHurling member of @UNESCO @officialgaa @DeptAHG team that secured #ICH for hurling/camogie gaa.ie/news-archive/n…
3) Hurling & Camogie (both were inscribed by @UNESCO as global Intangible Cultural Heritage) are modern field sports, codified, organised by @officialgaa & @OfficialCamogie associations, using distinctly modern sports equipment. But, descend from games of early medieval origins.
