    103. Case Report: A Rare Cause of Postpartum Angina and Arrest – University of Maryland

    103. Case Report: A Rare Cause of Postpartum Angina and Arrest – University of Maryland

    CardioNerds (Amit Goyal & Daniel Ambinder) join University of Maryland cardiology fellows (Manu Mysore, Adam Zviman, and Scott Butler) for some cardiology and an Orioles game in Baltimore! They discuss a rare cause of postpartum angina and cardiac arrest due to coronary vasculitis. Program director Dr. Mukta Srivastava provides the E-CPR expert segment and a message for applicants. Episode notes were developed by Johns Hopkins internal medicine resident Rick Ferraro with mentorship from University of Maryland cardiology fellow Karan Desai.

    Show Notes & Take Home Pearls







    In response to ischemia the myocardium can dynamically change along a spectrum from myocardial stunning to myocardial hibernation to myocardial necrosis. The goals of viability testing are to identify patients who may benefit from revascularization as hibernating or stunned myocardium are potentially reversible causes of LV dysfunction. There are numerous imaging modalities available for the evaluation of myocardial viability. The broad range of ways in which myocardial viability is assessed speaks to the complexity of the disease spectrum and the difficulty in creating a unifying definition of viability to assess in clinical trials.

    Five Take Home Pearls







    1. We can broadly differentiate non-invasive testing into two different categories—functional and anatomical. Functional tests allow us to delineate the functional consequence of coronary disease rather than directly characterizing the burden of disease. Anatomical tests such as coronary CTA, on the other hand, allow us to directly visualize obstructive epicardial disease.







    2. In general PET imaging provides higher quality images than SPECT imaging for a variety of reasons, including a higher “keV” of energy in PET radiotracers







    3. If using a SPECT camera, we should use cameras that have attenuation correction. Without attenuation correction, the specificity of a SPECT camera drops to 50-60%.







    4. In evaluating ischemic heart disease, cardiac nuclear imaging can provide a wide range of information including myocardial perfusion (rest and stress), ejection fraction assessment (rest and stress),

    98. Personalized Risk Assessment for Cardiovascular Prevention with Dr. Amit Khera

    98. Personalized Risk Assessment for Cardiovascular Prevention with Dr. Amit Khera

    CardioNerds (Carine Hamo, Amit Goyal and Daniel Ambinder) discuss personalized risk assessment for cardiovascular prevention with Dr. Amit Khera, the immediate past president for the American Society for Preventive Cardiology and Director of the Preventive Cardiology and Professor of Medicine at the University of Texas, Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, Texas. They dive into an illuminating discussion about traditional and next generation personalization of risk assessment which covers the need for personalization, traditional risk stratification, applying risk enhancing factors for decision making, biomarkers, familial hypercholesterolemia, and the use of -Omics. This episode is the 13th and final part of our in-depth prevention series produced in collaboration with the American Society for Preventive Cardiology!







    Stay tuned for a bonus segment at the end of the episodeas we talk to Dr. Ankur Kalra, interventionist at the Cleveland Clinic, Podcast host of Parallax by Ankur Kalra, and founder of the non-profit startup, makeadent.org for a discussion about the CHAI (Cardiovascular Health in Asian Indians) Collaborative, an initiative that aims to identify genetic markers of heightened atherosclerosis in South Asians.
