Heart Failure Patients Slightly Use of Beta Blockers…

In a research by New Saint Louis University, beta blockers aren't used sufficiently by heart failure patients who receive implantable cardiac devices. The author said that if the patient fails to take beta blockers prior to implanting, a cardiac device will affect the patient’s overall outcome and survival rate. “Current guidelines for cardiac devices stress the importance of establishing optimal therapy, which includes the use of beta blockers, before considering a patient a candidate for the invasive procedure,” said the author. He added that sometimes taking beta blockers may improve ejection fraction to the extent that the patient no longer needs a cardiac ... Read more

Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics in Kansas City, Mo. announced that installation of two systems of Infinix CF-i/BP vascular X-ray systems has been completed. Infinix CF-i/BP vascular X-ray systems are supported with 8" x 8" flat panel detectors (FPD) from Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. In order to improve healthcare for cardiovascular pediatric patients, Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics have become the first to use these systems in the United States. Children’s Mercy will apply the systems for several clinical aspects, including cardiac catheterizations, device implantation and general diagnostic imaging. With the new Infinix system installed, Children’s Mercy Hospitals will perform procedures that bring multiple clinical experts together in the operating room. This will help offering complete medical solutions. Moreover, Infinix is supported with dose management system providing accurate measurement of radiation doses applied during the exam, enabling physicians to depend on it. This is important especially for children to reduce radiation exposure doses to them. “The installation of the Infinix CF-i/BP cardiovascular X-ray systems has made a major impact on our facility, as we are now able to complete hybrid procedures that allow patients to be treated in a single OR[operating room] suite,” said Marius M. Hubbell, M.D., cardiovascular lab director, Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics. “Additionally, the new systems are providing us greater access to the head of the patient, which is critical in certain procedures and for the anesthesiologist, as many pediatric exams are performed under general anesthesia.” He added. Infinix has five-axis bi-plane system allowing high patient access, which is important feature in pediatrics. Infinix also has a floor based rotation mechanism of the C-arm allowing 180 degree access around the head end of the table. The freely moving parts are designed to be highly user friendly. These parts include five-axis positioner and mobile 8? x 8? flat panel detectors aiding physicians at the hospital to have optimal angles for cardiac diagnosis without re-positioning the patient. “The Infinix CF-i/BP, with its versatile five-axis positioner, unprecedented patient access and Next Generation AIP create a cardiovascular X-ray system perfectly suited for pediatric imaging,” said Robert Micer, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, ...

Dr. Shehab announced that FDA had approved ROSUVASTATIN from AstraZeneca, which reduces the risk of stroke, myocardial infarction (heart attack) and arterial revascularization procedures in individuals without clinically evident coronary heart disease, but with a high risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) based on age and the presence of CVD risk factor. He added "Usually, we treat patients after we discover they have a cardiological disease, but this medicine can tackle the early signs of the diseases."

UAE Doctors Fixes Aorta Without Surgery…

Tawam Hospital's Doctors in Al Ain have saved the life of a 13-year old road accident victim by using a technique that avoided potentially lethal surgery. The  Emirati victim suffered several injuries to his chest, including a tear in his aorta.

Dr Mohamed Hamdan, chief of Pediatric Cardiology, and Dr Ayman Saleh, chief of Interventional Radiology used a rare procedure never before practiced in the UAE, to close the tear without operating. Dr Hamdan said “We went in through a small opening in the groin vessels to reach the damaged area...”. “We then put a specially designed stent (a platinum frame, coated with 24K gold) covered with a special tissue into the damaged area to close the tear, and stop the blood from leaking outside the vessel wall,” he added. UAE Tawam Hospital reports the patient condition and describes it as being in an excellent ... Read more
