Seeing two of my mentors - Benenati and Williams - get Gold Medals in the same year.

Unless they are primary admit, the vast majority of pages should be going to the admitting service. Are they paging you for shenanigans?

Truth be told the fact that DR took first call on issues overnight was one of the very few things I didn’t like about your amazing program when I interviewed for fellowship. I wanted to be responsible for all the issues overnight to maximize learning (masochist).

This convo is really exposing the heterogeneity of IR practices throughout the country.

Anyone saying no better be running this decision by their attending at my program or they will be in deep doo-doo with me.

That’s a very reasonable comment and I can get behind that. Also - I would love to know which programs have 30 primary admit IR patients. We admitted a lot of our patients at MCVI and I don’t think primary patients ever exceeded 10, usually only 3-4 at a time.

That’s a problem with the ER doc, not the lack of an in-house intern. It requires education, which is cheaper than a physician extender and doesn’t add yet another level of call for our residents. Not trying to be difficult, but I personally think home call should stay at home.

It depends how many patients are admitted to IR overnight. Do we seriously pay for an NP/PA to be in house every night for a list of all consult patients? Most things can be managed remotely. Benenati taught me to work hard but smart. Shouldn’t invent work to keep up appearances.

I don’t think we have the necessary number of humans in radiology to do that each year without becoming allied with surgery to have them help cover our inpatients at night. This might be doable given our integrated programs that include prelim surg.

Pre and post imaging from CLI case this morning. Ultimately achieved partial PT recanalization in addition to peroneal collateral. Final DP pressure increased to 95.

That looks like very organized material! This is an enigma of a case.

Update on 16 yo with iliac artery occlusion. After 48 hrs of largely little lytic response, we performed thrombectomy and 6 mm PTA of ext iliac artery. Also thrombectomy of peroneal artery. Specimen sent to path. May further dilate in future after path and MRI

Even if it was a trauma being airlifted - they need to go through a lot of stuff before IR typically gets involved. Unless it’s coming straight for embo (which would mean IR should have been involved in transfer decision), then heads up before they arrive still not helpful.

Useless. I’ve posted on this before. All it does is prevent me from falling back asleep and now I’m fatigued when the consult really comes in or for the next day.

Been saying this all along. When every comment from a specific group of people reads like an accusation, it’s hard not to get upset / defensive. Also, prior interactions color even their benign comments in the future.

Seems like a very one sided conversation here
