Medtronic Attempts A Do-Over On Renal Denervation | MDDI Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry News Products and Suppliers

Some physicians believe renal denervation is pretty much history. After all, back in January 2014, the biggest trial of renal denervation conducted by Medtronic failed spectacularly in being unable to lower blood pressure in patients with resistant hypertension six months following the procedure.

Emergency Medicine Literature of Note: A Laughable tPA “Systematic Review”

Ryan,Thanks for highlighting this paper. I find this extraordinarily disappointing when I thought that we are finally getting the pendulum to swing back to a balanced interpretation of the stroke literature. The conclusion of the abstract is absurd on so many levels; " Intravenous rtPA remains the standard of care for patients with moderate to severe neurological deficits who present within 4.5 hours of symptom onset"Have you thought of submitting a letter to JAMA? Or has your head gone to numb from banging it against the wall? I guess there is a time and place to pick your battles... but this one does seem to go way over the top.

I am not sure why iTunes does not show them any more? I have contacted them and trying to work it out. You can still find all the old podcasts on TheSGEM website attached to their blog entries. However, people like to subscribe to iTunes and have automatic access.So in classic emergency medicine style I came up with a back up solution. All the previous podcasts are now attached to this blog entry and hopefully Word Press uploads them to iTunes…
