Tom Dayspring’s generosity has been remarkable and I’m humbled to be his most sponge-like student.I know, I know, I said I was going to limit things to one post per year, but the last one doesn’t really count and while the year isn’t even half over I’m willing to predict nothing will inspire me more to write a post in the next 6 months than Allan Sniderman’s recent editorial piece in JAMA Cardiology. Before I get into this post I want to lay a few things out.There was a day when the only thing I argued about was who the greatest boxer of all time was. 1937-42 Henry Armstrong.) Today, however, I find myself arguing about so many things—some of them actually important—from why symptomatic women should receive hormone replacement therapy after menopause (and, by extension, why the Women’s Health Initiative tells us so, if you know how to read it) to why monotherapy with T4 for hypothyroidism is a recipe for disaster for most patients.Most people, doctors included, think atherosclerosis is a luminal-narrowing condition—a so-called “pipe narrowing” condition.It’s true that eventually the lumen of a diseased vessel does narrow, but this is sort of like saying the defining feature of a subprime collateralized debt obligation (CDO) is the inevitable default on its underlying assets.I’ve broken the video down into 20 or so steps which show the transition from a completely normal endothelium (i.e., at birth) through myocardial infarction.
