Residency Recap

November 29, 2016

Annemarie Thompson, MD

Dr. Annemarie Thompson
Residency Program Director

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I was in the CTICU for part of the holidays  but was able to spend some time with my family.  This time of the year feels like warp speed (how is it almost 2017?!) with clinical duties, interviews, and the obligatory Nutcracker performance (those of you who have children will totally understand).

A huge thank you to all of the faculty, residents, and staff assisting with interviews. Applicants have commented that everyone they have interacted with have been superb – nothing I didn’t already know!

I know you all have been reading and preparing for your upcoming exams (right?) but as a reminder the ITE (for CA1’s, 2’s, 3’s and Dr. Welsby) and the AKT6 (only for CA1’s)  will be here shortly (Saturday, February 18 for the ITE and Monday, January 9 for the AKT6). Email or stop by to chat with Ashley Grantham about finding the best way to study for you – she’s a great resource to have. We also have our first mock orals of the year coming up on Wednesday, December 7. Dr. Nicole Guinn is leading the charge and has had great response from faculty wanting to help! Check out next week’s DARE blog for her take on the real examination.

Speaking of the ABA’s examinations, please look at the expanded content online they recently sent out — it is under the ABA tab below.  OSCEs are a new component of the Part 2 examination, but given the great clinical training at Duke, this is where you will shine.

Shelby sent an email to all of you earlier this week, but I want to remind you we’re meeting Thursday at 4:30 p.m. to talk about the upcoming CLER visit. For those of you who weren’t here during the last visit, we’ll talk about what to expect and any questions you might have. Some of you have already been asked by the GME office to participate, but the site visitors can stop and talk to anyone during their visit. Again, the visit will target the six focus areas: patient safety, health care quality, care transitions, supervision, duty hours and fatigue management, and professionalism.

Have a great week and I’ll see you at our meeting Thursday at 4:30 p.m.!

Perioperative Management in a Patient With Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type I and Severe Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Warren S. McCauley, M.D., Stephen H. Gregory, M.D., Joseph A. Hutson, M.D., W. Michael Bullock, M.D.,Ph.D.


Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) type 1 is a connective tissue disorder characterized by bone fragility typically leading to the development of multiple fractures over the patient’s lifetime. The coexistence of OI and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) has been rarely reported. In this case report, we discuss a 54-year-old woman with OI type 1, HCM, and severe restrictive lung disease who presented for open reduction and internal fixation of a left femur fracture with a perioperative course complicated by postoperative cardiac arrest requiring cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Discussion focuses on the perioperative management of OI and cardiopulmonary resuscitation in patients with HCM.
