Do cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) 4/6 inhibitors cause acute kidney injury (AKI)? #onconephrology #Thread

A little #tweetorial about CDK 4/6 inhibitor-associated AKI: what we know already, and what we found…
3 CDK 4/6 inhibitors (palbociclib, ribociclib, and abemaciclib)have been approved for HER2-negative metastatic breast cancers. CDK 4/6 inhibitors help overcome resistance to endocrine therapies by preventing cell-cycle progression and cancer growth (…).
What do we know about AKI related to CDK 4/6 inhibition? In vitro studies suggest that CDK 4/6 inhibitor metabolites inhibit renal transporters, potentially leading to a reversible rise in serum creatinine (SCr) without actually changing GFR (…).

Also nephrology:
“We will make no adjustment for muscle mass when using urinary creatinine within urine ACR”

A #tweetorial on two albuminuria paradoxes 👇
Recap: why use early morning urine ACR?

✅Correlates well with ‘gold standard’ 24hr urine collection (pain to perform)

✅Creatinine in denominator corrects for urine dilution - works when creat excretion constant (but, note some daily variation)…
Albuminuria quantification is useful prognostically (as well as clear diagnostic utility!):
❗️Independent risk factor for CV mortality
❗️ RENAAL showed higher uACR = higher risk of CKD progression in patients with type 2 diabetes

Doctor, is the #radiotherapy I am getting affecting how well my #CovidVaccine works?


There is large heterogeneity when looking at immunogenicity of #COVID19 vaccines in #cancer patients & esp #lungcancer patients shown by @vivek_naranbhai & team in @JCO_ASCO

Chemo may suppress antibody levels somewhat.
What about #radiotherapy?

Wir haben ein neues Tweetorial für euch!🙌 Diesmal beschäftigen wir uns mit der „Laktatdialyse“. Damit ist eine Dialyse gemeint, die das Ziel hat, Laktat aus dem Blut zu entfernen um so auch vermeintlich eine Laktatazidose auszugleichen. Langer 🧵, aber lohnt! 1/15 #tweetorial
Zugrunde liegen die Vorstellungen, dass Laktat ein Toxin ist und es eine Azidose direkt unterhält. Eins vorweg: Dass Laktat nur ein Marker für die "Kritischheit" einer Erkrankung ist und kein Toxin, also selbst nicht die Krankheit unterhält, sollte schonmal klar sein ‼️. 2/15
Damit bleibt als Rationale für die Laktatdialyse nur der erhoffte Effekt auf die Laktatazidose. Unsere Lernziele🎯: Kann Laktat (relevant) dialyisiert werden? Wenn ja, hat dies einen Einfluss auf den pH? Warum ist Laktatazidose ein irreführender Begriff? 3/15

It was a delight to work with @gabifpucci of @neudrawlogy to explore the incredibly diverse CNS complications of infective endocarditis!

An #infographic & #tweetorial investigating the radiographic & clinical findings in IE + some management pearls!
#MedEd #Neurotwitter
The most common cause of neurologic injury in IE is ischemic stroke.
But! Management is somewhat different.

Notably, due to the high risk of hemorrhagic transformation, tPA is relatively contraindicated or should be used with extreme caution.

You don’t want to end up with ⬇️!
As evidence: in this series, 1 in 5 patients experienced post-tPA ICH and only 10% achieved a good outcome.

Let's start ourselves off with a question: Which one of the following conditions will lead to scarring?
The correct answer is Pyoderma Gangrenosum! This illustrates a quick first point - scarring only occurs if you damage the skin into dermis and beyond. Epidermal damage heals without scarring, which is why the first 3 don't lead to scarring!
So what exactly is a scar?

Scarring is a normal part of healing that at its root, is extra collagen laid down to repair skin injury.

However, sometimes the process gets out of hand and exuberant which leads to hypertrophic scars (pic 1) keloids (pic 2)!

Ever wonder why cutting onions makes you cry?

Something must be released that causes this irritating response, but what?

It turns out that cutting an onion jumpstarts multiple chemical reactions, in the air and right in front of your eyes.

#medtwitter #tweetorial 🧅
💡Onions are actually one of the oldest cultivated crops, first entering the human diet ~5,000-7,000 years ago.

Ancient Egyptians worshipped onions (evoked eternity) and ancient Indians, Greeks, and Romans believed that they had medicinal properties.…
But as anyone who has ever cut or chopped an onion knows, the simple act of chopping them causes almost immediate eye irritation and tearing.

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

Hi #dermtwitter/#medtwitter! Our last (for now!) #tweetorial/#medthread on nails! This time it’s...


Education from @naildisorders and the @jmervak team!

@societypedsderm @PeDRAResearch #medstudenttwitter #medtwitter #meded #FOAMed
Beau’s lines (transverse ridge) and onychomadesis (nail shedding) common in kids! Often seen in a post-viral setting.

Common culprit = hand foot mouth disease!
Congenital malalignment of the great toenails – lateral deviation of the first toenails. More common than you think. Start looking at more toes and you’ll see it! Can improve with time or persist. Risk for nail thickening or ingrown nails.

It’s no secret what’s growing in blood.
But, the cultures won’t clear,
On valves it adheres!

Patient aphasic,
What’s with the agitation?

ESR & CRP rising!
An #Tweetorial advising:
Never overlook the spinal epidural abscess!!

All poetry aside (pretty good tho, right?!)

Goals for the scroll (⬅️credit @sigman_md 😂):
1⃣ How difficult it can be to diagnose spiral epidural abscesses (SEA)
2⃣ What exactly is the spinal epidural space
3⃣ How these should be treated
4⃣ And why decompress?
Diagnosing SEA = super tricky. The symptoms & labs are so non-specific!
✅Back pain ⏫(but back pain--who doesn't?)
✅Fever is often present, but not always.
✅WBC may be elevated, but sometimes just mildly. ✅Blood cultures are only positive about 60% of the time.

I feel like it's “time” for a shoddily-organized scratching-the-surface #neuropsychtwitter #tweetorial on clock drawing in dementia. 1/x
I will focus on the most common (or arguably best) version of the clock drawing test (CDT): command (free) drawing of a “10 after 11” clock followed by copy of a clock stimulus. 2/x
The first documented use of CDT was by Sir Henry Head. Per Hazan et al. 2017: “Head's reasoning behind using the clock tests was that they required the execution of meaningful speech, an almost impossible task for people with aphasia.” 3/x

Time for a #CriticalCare #Tweetorial!

‼️Basics of CRRT for the non-nephrologist‼️

Exiting my typical #Neurology wheelhouse as I tackle some #FOAMcc topics for my own learning. Please join in on teaching and address any mistakes!

CRRT- What does it stand for?!

Continuous- Runs around the clock (sort of)
Renal- The beans!
Replacement- More of a rinse than a true replacement
Therapy- It helps!

@criticalbeansmd @EmoryNeuroCrit @caseyalbin @KrafteKraft4 @mallyaa @VijayanMD
Why do we use CRRT instead of HD?

Patient’s with hemodynamic instability (ie blood pressure is so low they can’t tolerate HD)

Conditions where you need to avoid large fluid shifts (like cerebral edema)

A #tweetorial about simulation in NCC
Today @namorris opened his remarks on Sim in NCC @ #NCS2021 w/ a simple question about the correct first line treatment for SE? Everyone got it.

Then he posed a tougher question.

How often does that happen?

No one voted "always"
Even the most groundbreaking research won’t benefit our patients if we aren’t delivering it correctly.

I so highly encourage you to check out Nick’s talk on-demand if you have access to #NCS2021.

It is 🚨critical🚨 that we teach more effectively!

Some practical, take-aways from this talk about finding right Simulation Solution. Image

So you got major revisions - congratulations!
Below is a step-by-step guide to submitting a revised manuscript to a clinical journal
There are nuances but it's a relatively standard formula for most journals
I hope you find this 🧵 helpful!
#MedEd #tweetorial #MedTwitter 1/20
Copy and paste all comments from the email into a word doc. This is your 'response letter'.
Number each comment, by reviewer or sequentially.
Leave spaces to fill in your responses to each comment.
Format so their comments can be easily distinguished from your responses. 2/20
Examples in pic - many options.
Don’t rely on different font colour b/c when you cut and paste it into ‘response’ box, it will all be black.
Red ink has negative connotations and everything else seems weird. Italics makes it hard to read.
Underlining comments also ok. 3/20

Join me for a quick #tweetorial/#medthread on:

Pearls for the #Dermatology Exam!

#MedEd #dermtwitter #medtwitter #medstudenttwitter #FOAMed

First a question - What do you think when someone asks for your help with a rash?
Regardless how you answered, I hope to teach you something today! Let's start!

"In #dermatology, we don't do an H+P, we do a P+H."

The exam is perhaps most important. You can use it to narrow down your ddx! Then, you use your history to further work toward the right dx.
"If there's scale, there probably is epidermal involvement."

Scale usually implies action in the epidermis. This doesn't rule out anything in the dermis or subcutis, but just that the pathology includes action up top.

Time for a #tweetorial on one of my favorite topics: Wrist Drop. @AANMember @NMatch2022 #neurology #futureneurologist #neurotwitter #neurotwitternetwork @AANEMorg #meded @KoriPoRodri

The first thing you should think of when you see a patient with weak wrist extension is…
This. Compression of the radial nerve at spiral groove. And usually, we think of it as being caused by... Image
This. And by the way, if you’re ever curious about the surprising origins of the term “Saturday Night Palsy,” read this article.

But I digress. The spiral groove (aka radial groove) is not the only peripheral localization for wrist drop. Image

Hi #dermtwitter! Back for another #tweetorial/#medthread on nails! Today we’re learning about:

ONYCHOMYCOSIS- nail fungus!
This is THE most common nail condition- so follow along!
Education from @naildisorders
#medstudenttwitter #medtwitter #meded #FOAMed
Onychomycosis is more common in adults than kids.
Trauma, diabetes, immunosuppression, tinea pedis, psoriasis, and family history are some risk factors

Pro tip- check the feet for tinea pedis if you suspect onychomycosis!

Patients with onychomycosis present with nail discoloration (yellow to brown), onycholysis (nail separation), nail brittleness, or nail thickening.

The big toenail is most frequently affected.

Fingernail involvement without also have toenail involvement is uncommon.
