In the article “Perioperative cardiac arrests in children between 1988 and 2005 at a tertiary referral center” (Flick RP, Sprung J, Harrison TE, Gleich SJ, Schroeder DR, Hanson AC, Buenvenida SL, Warner DO: Anesthesiology 2007; 106:226 –37) there is an error in the following sentence: “Of the 26 noncardiac patients who experienced CA, 7 had congenital heart disease, such that 87.5% of all patients who experienced perioperative CA had underlying heart disease.” This sentence should have read “76% of all patients,” not “ 87.5% of all patients.”

  Americans consume the equivalent of 300 loaves of bread each year (representing enormous exposure to the amylopectin A carbohydrate that behaves like sugar or worse). They also consume 200 pounds of sugar. It is not uncommon for sugar alone to comprise a quarter of all calories taken in over the course of the day—some of it out in the open, some of it hidden. To understand the adverse effects of sugars—sucrose, high-fructose corn syrup, and other fructose-rich sweeteners, such as agave, honey, and maple syrup—we need to understand two phenomena: 1. Insulin resistance 2 Glycation. Insulin Resistanc...

Authors: Ito M, Wada H, Sakakura K, Ibe T, Ugata Y, Fujita H, Momomura SI Abstract According to recent guidelines, a new category of patients with heart failure (HF) with mid-range left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) (HFmrEF) (LVEF = 40%-49%) has been defined. The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical characteristics and long-term outcomes of patients with HFmrEF. This was a single-center, retrospective, observational study in which we examined the clinical characteristics and outcomes of 494 consecutive patients with acute decompensated heart failure who were admitted to our institution betwe...

(The North American Menopause Society (NAMS)) Thanks to advanced medical treatments, women diagnosed with breast cancer today will likely survive the disease. However, some treatment options put these women at greater risk for a number of other health problems. A new study out of Brazil shows that postmenopausal women with breast cancer are at greater risk for developing heart disease. Results are published online in Menopause, the journal of The North American Menopause Society (NAMS).
