Doctors warn against off-label use of new Alzheimer's drug for cerebral amyloid angiopathy
(Massachusetts General Hospital) There is no clinical evidence that the monoclonal antibody aducanumab is beneficial to patients with cerebral amyloid angiopathy, according to a Massachusetts General Hospital neurologist and other officers with the International Cerebral Amyloid Angiography Association. In a letter in The Lancet Neurology, the group cited concerns over safety and efficacy in recommending that aducanumab not be prescribed off-label by physicians for the treatment of cerebral amyloid angiopathy.

Mayo Clinic Q & amp;A podcast: Taking the fear out of cardiac testing
When it comes to the heart, it can be scary to seek care when you think you might be having a problem. Tests may be necessary to evaluate your heart, and the unfamiliar terminology associated with these tests can be confusing and intimidating. Understanding terms like electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, coronary angiogram or stress test may help alleviate the fear. "Whenever we order these tests, we don't want you to have anxiety," says Dr. Christopher DeSimone, a Mayo… (Source: News from Mayo Clinic)

What Are the Main Acyanotic Congenital Heart Diseases?
Discussion Congenital heart diseases (CHD) are malformations of the heart and great vessels. It occurs in about 5-8/1000 live births. Cyanotic congenital heart disease is often noted perinatally because of cyanosis, respiratory distress and/or poor feeding or other distress type problems. A review can be found here. Acyanotic congenital heart disease (ACHD) can present at birth but often is seen in older children or adults unless the lesions are severe, especially obstructive lesions. Severe lesions may also cause cyanosis and distress type problems in patients also. Shunting lesions cause problems by diverting blood flo...
