PCI indication, stent type, and choice of P2Y12 inhibitor did not have a significant impact on the benefits of dabigatran-based dual therapy. ANAHEIM, CA—Dabigatran-based dual antithrombotic therapy maintains its advantage over warfarin-based triple therapy in terms of reducing bleeding in patients with A-fib undergoing PCI, a new analysis of RE-DUAL PCI shows. That advantage is held across patient subsets.
Most patients aged 50 or below didn’t meet criteria set by current cholesterol-treatment guidelines, according to registry data. ANAHEIM, CA—Only a minority of patients in their 50s or younger who experience a first MI are on statin therapy prior to their event, according to new data from the YOUNG-MI Registry. Even more striking, researchers say, is that among those not on the drugs, more than half wouldn’t have met the guideline-specified criteria for statin therapy in the first place.
The treatment goal has been lowered, and a new classification expands the number of US adults considered to have hypertension. ANAHEIM, CA—The wait is finally over: the comprehensive hypertension guidelines that have been in the works for more than 3 years are being released here at the American Heart Association (AHA) 2017 Scientific Sessions.
Survey by @blumenthalDM1 and colleagues finds that 2/3 of NY/MA interventionalists have avoided high-risk PCI due to concerns about public reporting, 52% think upcoding happens, and 74% have little or no trust in risk-adjustment methods https://t.co/QBG2s76Fi8#AHA17
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
