Lack of depth.
By Ali J. on 19. May 2023 for Mitral Stenosis and Mitral Regurgitation – Valvular Heart Disease

This lecture lacks depth and does not cover the conditions in depth (e.g. physical findings, acute vs chronic pictures, etc). It's under cardiology, so I do not understand why it feels like an introduction only.

Lack of depth.
By Ali J. on 19. May 2023 for Aortic Regurgitation – Valvular Heart Disease

You only mentioned valvular defects leading to aortic regurgitation what about the aortic root defects? This lecture lacks so much more knowledge that we must know both for medical school exams and the USMLEs. For instance, where are the physical findings associated AR? The diastolic descrescendo murmur, wide pulse pressure, and S3 heart sound. The specific pulse patterns such as, Corrigan's pulse, water hammer, or pistol shot pulse patterns. How are patients with aortic regurgitation treated and etc? I've been seeing so much lack of consistency with lectures on lecturio recently.

Excellent professor.
By Ali J. on 18. May 2023 for Aortic Stenosis – Valvular Heart Disease

He is such a great lecturer, demonstrating heart murmurs with his own voice better than the actual murmurs we hear through a stethoscope. That was an exaggeration but you get my point. He is fantastic.

By Ali J. on 23. April 2023 for Plaque – Coronary Artery Disease

What a great and passionate professor. He goes beyond the slides to help you really understand the materials.
