Abstract: EDITORIALS 1027 The NOACs (Novel Oral Anticoagulants) Have Landed! Joseph S. Alpert 1029 The Importance and Role of Clinical Imaging Guidelines: The Example of the ACR Appropriateness Criteria on Renal Failure Michael A. Bettmann COMMENTARY 1031 Thrombolytic Therapy for Acute Pulmonary Embolism: When do the Benefits Exceed the Risks? Paul D. Stein and James E. Dalen REVIEWS 1033 Black Physicians and the Struggle for Civil Rights: Lessons from the Mississippi Experience Part 2: Their Lives and Experiences Richard D. deShazo, Robert Smith, and Leigh Baldwin Skipworth The story of black physicians in Mississippi during the civil rights era is a story of disenfranchised professionals who risked life, limb, and personal success to improve the lives of their patients. 1041 ACR Appropriateness Criteria on Renal Failure Erick M. Remer, Nicholas Papanicolaou, David D. Casalino, Jay T. Bishoff, M. Donald Blaufox, Courtney A. Coursey, Manjiri Dighe, Steven C. Eberhardt, Stanley Goldfarb, Howard J. Harvin, Marta E.

Weinfeld Imaging plays a role in the management of patients with acute kidney injury or chronic kidney disease. Clinical circumstances strongly impact the appropriateness of imaging use. 1049 Getting Control of Uncontrolled Asthma Michael E. Wechsler This thorough review discusses current global guidelines for the assessment and management of asthma control and summarizes the broad spectrum of novel therapeutic agents currently under development.

Desai, Alexis A. Krumme, Sebastian Schneeweiss, William H. Shrank, Gregory Brill, Edmund J. Pezalla, Claire M. Spettell, Troyen A. Brennan, Olga S. Matlin, Jerry Avorn, and Niteesh K. Choudhry This study demonstrates rapid adoption of novel anticoagulants into clinical practice and high health care cost consequences. 1083 SAMe-TT2R2 Score, Time in Therapeutic Range, and Outcomes in Anticoagulated Patients with Atrial Fibrillation Pilar Gallego, Vanessa Roldán, Francisco Marin, José Gálvez, Mariano Valdés, Vicente Vicente, and Gregory Y.H. Lip In patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation, a high SAMe-TT2R2 score (reflecting poor anticoagulation control with poor time in therapeutic range) was associated with more bleeding, adverse cardiovascular events and mortality during follow-up. 1089 Structural and Microstructural Brain Changes Predict Impairment in Daily Functioning Vincentius J.A. Verlinden, Jos N. van der Geest, Marius de Groot, Albert Hofman, Wiro J. Niessen, Aad van der Lugt, Meike W. Vernooij, and M. Arfan Ikram In non-demented community-dwelling individuals, structural and microstructural brain changes associate with deterioration and higher risk of impairment in a wide range of daily activities. 1097 Improving Adherence for Management of Acute Exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Lindsay Sonstein, Carlos Clark, Susan Seidensticker, Li Zeng, and Gulshan Sharma Evidence-based electronic ordersets improve compliance with clinical practice guidelines and reduce the total dose of corticosteroid administered in patients hospitalized with acute exacerbations of COPD. 1105 Chronic Coinfections in Patients Diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease: A Systematic Review Paul M. Lantos and Gary P. Wormser The medical literature does not support the diagnosis of chronic, atypical tick-borne coinfections in patients with chronic, nonspecific illnesses. 1111 Inferior Vena Cava Filter Usage, Complications, and Retrieval Rate in Cancer Patients Farhad Abtahian, Beau M. Hawkins, David P. Ryan, Philip Cefalo, Nicola J. Nasser, Cheryl MacKay, Michael R. Jaff, and Ido Weinberg In a modern cohort of patients undergoing retrievable inferior vena cava filter placement, active diagnosis of cancer is not associated with a significant increase in filter related complications but is associated with a reduced rate of filter retrieval. 1118 Reactive Hemophagocytic Syndrome in Adults: A Retrospective Analysis of 162 Patients Sébastien Rivière, Lionel Galicier, Paul Coppo, Christophe Marzac, Cedric Aumont, Olivier Lambotte, and Laurence Fardet Hematological malignancies, particularly non- Hodgkin lymphomas, were the main diseases associated with hemophagocytic syndrome.
