REVIEW
Elizabeth George, Jeffrey P Guenette, Thomas C Lee
Primary care physicians are often tasked with evaluating neurologic symptoms and imaging plays a critical role in neurologic diagnoses. Neuroradiology routinely employs advanced imaging modalities and hence, determination of the appropriate imaging test and interpretation of findings in the clinical context can understandably be overwhelming. In this review article, we introduce resources that can guide physicians in the selection of neuroimaging tests and summarize guidelines on contrast agent administration...

OBJECTIVES: To analyze factors associated with delays to surgical management of Type A acute aortic dissection patients enrolled in the International Registry of Acute Aortic Dissection. METHODS: We evaluated 1880 surgically-managed Type A acute aortic dissection patients enrolled between 1996 and 2012 with data for times of diagnosis and surgery, accounting for demographic, clinical and diagnostic variables associated with surgical delay. RESULTS: The majority of patients were transferred (75...

BACKGROUND: As healthcare costs rise, home health care represents an opportunity to reduce preventable adverse events and costs following hospital discharge. No studies have invesxtigated the utility of home health care within the context of a large and diverse patient population. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted between 1/1/2013 and 6/30/2015 at a single tertiary care institution to assess healthcare utilization and costs after discharge with home health care...

BACKGROUND: Older people are predisposed to hyperkalemia because of impaired renal function, comorbid conditions, and polypharmacy. Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors (RAASi), guideline-recommended for the treatment of chronic kidney disease and heart failure, further augment the risk. Patiromer, a nonabsorbed potassium binder, was shown in a phase 3 study (OPAL-HK) to decrease serum potassium in patients with chronic kidney disease on RAASi. We studied the efficacy and safety of patiromer in a prespecified subgroup of patients aged ≥65 years from OPAL-HK...

#9
REVIEW
James E Dalen, Joseph S Alpert
Patients with cryptogenic strokes are more likely to have a patent foremen ovale than in the general population. It is speculated that these strokes are due to paradoxical embolism- that is passage of a venous thrombus across the patent foremen ovale to enter the arterial circulation, resulting in an embolic stroke. Venous thromboembolism is rarely present in these cases of cryptogenic stroke. Thousands of patients with cryptogenic strokes have undergone transcatheter closure of their patent foremen ovale via a variety of devices...

Mark M Brodie, Jill C Newman, Tyler Smith, Don C Rockey
BACKGROUND: Direct-acting oral anticoagulants (DOACs), which have gained approval for stroke prevention in non-valvular atrial fibrillation and treatment of venous thromboembolism, have become increasingly preferred over warfarin given their predictable pharmacodynamics, lack of required monitoring, and superior outcomes. DOACs have been shown to be associated with an increased frequency of gastrointestinal bleeding compared to warfarin, but the severity and characteristics of gastrointestinal bleeding in these patients is poorly understood...

Code Black is a documentary movie, and now television series, whose name derives from a term used to describe critical hospital overcrowding resulting in dangerously inadequate patient flow. The Los Angeles County + University of Southern California (LAC+USC) Medical Center is a large, urban, public hospital with a long history of spending substantial amounts of time in Code Black-indeed the movie was created by a former Emergency Medicine resident at LAC+USC Medical Center. To change years of inadequate inpatient flow, we implemented time-limited cardiac monitoring criteria and empowered existing staff to enforce admission and downgrade criteria for our telemetry, step-down care unit, and intensive care units...
