4501. Longitudinal HCM Care in Action: Expert Perspectives to Optimize Diagnosis and Integration of Cardiac Myosin Inhibitors as a Cardiac Care Team
Signia by Hilton
Triumph Ballroom, Level 2
Sponsored by Answers in CME

In this activity, experts in managing hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) will use case-based scenarios and interactive polling questions to discuss how to diagnose patients with obstructive HCM and how to translate the latest evidence on cardiac myosin inhibitors to practice. The expert faculty will also highlight the role of community cardiologists in diagnosing and managing this patient population.

4504. Paving the Way: Advancements in Hyperkalemia and the Role of the Cardiologist
The Westin Peachtree Plaza
6:30 – 8:15 p.m.
Sponsored by AstraZeneca

This session will provide a detailed look into the burden of hyperkalemia (HK), including HK in patients with heart failure (HF) and in those taking renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors (RAASis). As HK may disrupt guideline-recommended RAASi therapy, this session will discuss how using a K+ binder to manage HK is important in patients on RAASi therapy. Learn from an esteemed panel of your peers about a K+ binder to treat HK in patients with HF, including those on RAASi therapy.


  • Recognize the burden of hyperkalemia in patients with HF
  • Highlight the complications related to RAASi down-titration or discontinuation due to hyperkalemia
  • Emphasize the importance of hyperkalemia management to help enable guideline-recommended RAASi therapy
  • Recognize the role of cardiologists in the treatment of HK with a K+ binder

4505. Advances in Thrombosis Gameshow Challenge: Unraveling the Future of Factor XI Inhibition
The W Atlanta - Downtown
Great Room 1 & 2
7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Sponsored by Medscape

Anticoagulants have been crucial for reducing the risk of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation. However, currently available agents are often underutilized or utilized inappropriately primarily due to safety concerns, leading to suboptimal patient outcomes. Emerging evidence suggests that factor XI is a promising new target for inhibition of pathological thrombosis.

Join us in this gameshow challenge and test your knowledge against your peers' about thromboembolic disease and factor XI inhibition.
