Highlighted patho-physiology
By Mariane B. on 27. February 2017 for Valvular Heart Disease: Mitral Stenosis

This is after all a Pathology course. Normally, management is not discussed here, but you guys did. Thank you!

 
Great lecture!!
By M D R. on 20. February 2017 for Tachyarrhythmia: Multifocal Atrial Tachycardia and Wolff-Parkinson-White-Syndrome (WPW)

I have traditionally had difficulty with the cardiovascular system, but listening to Dr. Raj and his cardiovascular lectures has changed that completely!! Absolutely love it!

 
What about valvuloplasty
By Hamed S. on 18. February 2017 for Valvular Heart Disease: Mitral Stenosis

Need to further explore surgical and percutaneous treatment options incl valvuloplasty and in which patients valve replacement vs valvuloplasty is preferred

 
More Management Discussions Needed
By Hamed S. on 18. February 2017 for Valvular Heart Disease: Aortic Stenosis

This was a well explained lecture but a trend I have noticed with these videos so far is the immense focus on physiology at the expense of diagnosis and management which is important for step 2. The avoidance of vasodilators, ACE-Inhibitors etc was glossed over. Moreover, a discussion of surgical options including valvuloplasty and percutaneous valve replacement was omitted. Common on guys if you are serious about step-2 and want people to transition from established providers like Kaplan then you need to focus more on management. I'm beginning to lose faith in these videos
