Learning Pathology has never been so comfortable

Very good way of teaching and explanation is clear to the key points
By Nourhan B. on 19. February 2017 for Rosacea

Very good way of teaching and explanation is clear to the key points, thank you Dr.Carlo Raj!

 
Omission of subsequent investigaitons
By Hamed S. on 19. February 2017 for Differential Diagnoses – Hyperthyroidism (Thyrotoxicosis)

Good table but a discussion of subsequent investigations to further characterise the nodule is warranted. For example following up a cold nodule with U/S guided FNA . The algorithm wasn't took clear for example starting with thyroid function test, followed by iodine uptake and further imaging/biopsy

 
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
