"There's the national institute of aging and you could go on and on diabetes And then so what you see. Then as the comer biddies in turner syndrome spread across all of the national institutes of health. And if you're studying congenital heart defects you will go to. Nhlbi the national heart lung and blood institute because that is their mission We once were writing a proposal and it was for a mechanism that nhlbi doesn't have and so we went to national institute of child. Health disease Health and i see it and they refuse to us and said no you're working on the heart therefore you're not The subject isn't appropriate for our institute. So they don't step on each other's toes they do. They stay in their own lands and we were arguing but as a childhood disease in you. You are child. Health and human development Institute they said yeah but to do with the heart. We can't touch it and so so there's For turner syndrome of specific problem in getting funding. Because you know no one. And i h institute sort of takes ownership of turner's syndrome as a condition. They'll they'll they'll be may be interested in heart defects in the heart lung and blood institute. But they're not gonna wanna hear about diabetes. That goes to a different institute. And so you've become very diluted out and that could be seen as an opportunity but actually we've seen it more as a barrier because a lot of people don't really appreciate why one should study disorders. There's so much else going on. In the world we need to focus or elsewhere however as a result at least in part i think of efforts are linked to think so that a couple of years ago Heart lung and blood institute issued a rare disorders grant opportunity and it was substantial as four million dollars per grant and turner syndrome was named as one of the specific that they wanted to see on worked on. And so we're very excited getting ourselves all geared up and ready and writing the grant and then cove nineteen hits and all bets are often in the The request for applications was discontinued now. It was devastating to us because we were well into it. Put a lot of work in the two very excited for the opportunity. But i understand i mean the world has changed in last year significantly and priorities had to change. I'm just hoping that when we come back to a more normal time that it won't be forgotten that rare disorders such as turner syndrome are incredibly important. To study in that resources will come back into that arena so got pollution show. So you have the terms in brusett beginning to Beginning to put together That sort of reduces the bootle on patients And makes the process dogma systematic if you look forward five.

"I so much more sensitive in describing this process so much more we were able to look back at the original echo. I'm really see that there was atrial. Displacement of the mitral anyalysts there was by trillion disjunction evident on the echo in there was systolic kind of curling of the mitral valve leaflets. That is consistent with a diagnosis of mad or my children eulogised junction. So you don't necessarily need to get a cardiac mri on everybody. If you can't appreciate this on echo. I think that's an important teaching point too. Is that you know. Echo can't be perfect and sometimes if you're not confident your echo or you're still suspicious of something when you see something on not getting cardiac. Mri can be very helpful. This is a very ding time point. In how this case is unfolding because we started off with a patient who was otherwise healthy young vibrant productive essentially died was thankfully revived. And now we're struggling to figure out why that happened and to try to prevent later. We've diagnosed mitral valve prolapse from the clinical approach perspective. It's so challenging right. Because mitral valve prolapse is such a common structural. Finding many people have it and associated with vague things palpitations and things like this very rarely. This common finding can be associated with arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death as well as mitral regurgitation or heart failure or whatnot and even though mijo self is very common. The sudden cardiac death is very rare. But even though it's rare it's catastrophic and so to be able to identify high risk features is just so incredibly important so that we don't lose people like him and so on the scale of mitral valve. Prolapse what you're describing to us is a high risk features of mitral valve. Prolapse tend to attend to come with us. Excess risk of tv f. sudden cardiac death. You know like how do these abnormalities form. You've got these redundant leaflets that as the ventricle squeezes the leaflets. Coop but all the redundancy the excess tissue backup into the l. a. the left atrium and decor which are tasked with the duty of holding. The tips leaves together. So they don't flail back into the left atrium all of a sudden they're stretched out in every time they're stretched out they pull onto the Muscles the muscles pull onto the lv walls the annuals alpha sudden very Abruptly it up into the left atrium ripping it apart from the lv mass lv muscle itself. And so all of the stretch injury from a the mild mitral valve. Prolapse may be doesn't have much of a consequence but with a severe match about prolapse with every single heartbeat. Over course of twenty five twenty. Six years causes stretch injury to the pepperoni muscles. You can have scar. Thankfully species does not have that you can have scar in the muscle itself. The let the in for basil area more classically but here. This mitral valve prolapse was severe enough to essentially rip the angeles away from the. Lv muscle causes mitral. Antler destruction so the different varieties and flavors of mitral valve. Prolapse is a pretty severe form and has features that say. Hey look. maybe this isn't just an incidental. Benign finding for this gentleman. Maybe this is actually what resulted in this patient sudden cardiac death we can certainly review all the other high risk features much prolapse but another question comes up what we do about it. You know. we couldn't find scar on the murray. So there's nothing too late there is no induce vita ap study. Does this patient get a mitral valve repair or replacement of or some form to give him an icy d. We do both..

"We really wanted to be more sure of our diagnosis. Rather than just chalking it. Up to mitral valve prolapse. We see might from prolapse. Not that infrequently. What about much about prolapse in this particular patient when make us more concern for an arrhythmia like can you teach me more about the link between mitral valve prolapse arrhythmia and what we would see on. Mri so beginning a number. I add to further. Investigate this for mitral valve prolapse. We're looking particularly to see if there's any evidence of scar fibrosis in the popular muscle or in certain segments of the myocardium that that can be from prolapse Hypermobility flynn it's billowing backwards into adria and the popular muscle is developing scar because it's having to accommodate for the stretch injury essentially additionally we're looking to see if there's a significant amount of mitral regurgitation that was possibly missed on echocardiogram and then the last thing that i think we're really looking for as well. Is something called mitral angular destruction. And there's a well described rhythmic syndrome associated with drilling euler destruction. So that's i think one of the things that we were also looking for on the arctic camera team. We know what we're looking for on the marai at this point i'm soobee. We took this patient to the tunnel of truth wooded a choke taking a look at the cardiac mri the mri show some interesting findings including some that marine dimensioned that we should be looking for a lvn. Rv size are moderately enlarged. There's by ventricular moderately reduced function. There is mitral valve prolapse. With mitral regurgitation there is no late gadolinium enhancement and no clear evidence of myocardial fibrosis and there is an interesting finding of mitral. Daniela destruction stacey. I think that that answers the question that we were really looking for was was was there. Poplar muscle fibrosis. In this case. There wasn't really discovered. Poplar muscle fibrosis. But will we did see was this mitral annual destruction and so really what it is is that you're seeing the mitral. Annualized kind of displace h really into the atrium and away from the l. v. wa so you can see a thin section of myocardium between the top of the wall and the mitral anyalysts There's a couple other features on mri and also on echo that you can look forward to kind of make this diagnosis that we did actually see in this case so One thing that you're looking for is a hypermobility of the mitral leaflets. oppose cheerier mitral leaflet can have a systolic curling motion to it. Additionally you can see that there's paradox a call increase in size of my leonidas. That happens during sicily. When typically you might expect the michelangelo's to get smaller during sisterly. Or maybe you don't even notice a change in size in the you'll but in my chilling dysfunction because it is it's really displacing you can see it in large in diameter as mentioned on the cardiac. Mri things you can see. Are the poplar. Muscle fibrosis hypermobility of the mitral leaflets. And additionally you can see. Lge in the info basil segment of noah ventricle. A similar thought. There in that segment is also getting some stretch injury from the hyper mobile leaflets. While guys like fascinating entity and again so many other aspects in cardiology you have a structural abnormality that leads to not necessarily like hema dynamic consequences but localized stretched and localized cheering and localized damage to the cardiac chambers. Like left intrical. For example. You know and so michael destruction like what is that you know. We're always thinking of the right atrium. Right ventricle left atrium and left ventricle.

Go find another. That is awesome. Not you know, I really like the rawness of this topic because it could definitely get emotional. Sometimes when people are dealing with new products and money has been invested and decisions have to be made Aitken get emotional. And so how do you take the identity out of your idea and make that commitment to the outcome? Instead of the actual idea. This is really powerful discussion. Thank you for walking, Scott fun. You know, one of the I think there's a few aspects of be worth talking about one is the son of the second half as it were sort of what happens after launch and getting the product of fit right to the market. So the people adopted of people have a way to pay for it that fits into a clinical workflow is a very very complicated and technical founders of companies, I know it's not necessarily deck audience here, but can often take that. So a missed the importance of that biggest so focused on the beauty of their idea in the technology solution and so on. So we strongly believe going out to talk to a lot of users and actually have the technical people in your team go into that UCS environments as well. But anybody forgets is that there's thousands of thousands of decisions that go into a product and hundreds southern going to a spec document. And so there's there's lots of decisions that are being made by people just kept feel and the more. You can provide them a opportunity to get into that surgery center or fly around in that area, ambulance or go watch the epidurals being put in whatever the application is actually sent engineers and technical people go participate in those that you'll get much better comes get in the trenches. Don't go aware that users are getting a trenches and be real with how it's going to be used in house going to be implemented. I love the true. So true. A lot of people don't do that. So Scott said stick a little pyramid here. What would you say you've gone through a lot of these lessons, and you develop systems, you've got philosophies, and you've got the teams to now. Really help provide these services to med device. Companies woman to say in all the successes that you have is one of your proudest moments and medical leave ship experience.

And then you start feeling Skopje. Again, you go into get the horrible life. So he said, wouldn't it be better? Actually, if we could this at night, and we slowly and you do every day, and you do it in your home. Like that would totally revolution. Denies the life of of kidney failure patients, and he started selling technology, and he got some stuff out of Hewlett Packard to be able to to mix. The dial on the fly in any some technology out of Oregon Health science university too with a friend new type of dialyzers that does the filtering. And then he came to us and said, okay, I've got the technology figured out. Can you go figure how things can actually turn into a device the end? So we had a team lead took can't recall Alami, the euro could come out with the very first working prototype that can be tested not on people yet.
