Ovarian Remnant Syndrome – Sue’s story
The post Ovarian Remnant Syndrome – Sue’s story appeared first on Hysterectomy Association. After suffering with endometriosis I decided at the age of 35 that I wanted a hysterectomy (despite having no children). Since the age of 13 I had suffered with severe period pain. When I was 26 I saw a gynaecologist (Mr W), who decided to do a D&C, this did not help with the pain so Mr W then did a laparoscopy. I was diagnosed with extensive endometriosis. I then began a course of Zoladex injections. At the end of the course I had another laparoscopy and the endometriosis was no more. Was I cured? NO! Three months l...

NeuWave wins FDA nod for Ablation Confirmation software
NeuWave Medical said today it won FDA premarket approval for its Ablation Confirmation software, which will be integrated into its Intelligent Ablation system. The new system uses computed tomography which allows physicians to visualize and confirm ablation targets and lesions using images from CT scanners, according to the company. The computer-contolled ablation system also has greater access to data gained during the process and is able to use it to streamline the procedure, CEO Dan Sullivan told MassDevice.com in an interview. “Because we have computer control, 1 of the things we have access to is data....

Remains Of American Colonial Leader Found Buried With Catholic Artifact
Archaeologists have uncovered an unlikely find at the site of America's oldest Protestant church: a small silver box researchers believe is a Catholic reliquary. The box, found in Jamestown, Virginia, contains seven fragments of bone and pieces of a lead ampulla, a type of flask used to hold holy water, CT scans revealed. The discovery raises questions about the roots of Catholicism in the U.S. -- especially at a time in history when anti-Catholic sentiment was high among the majority-Anglican colonists.

Where Are Young Greek Doctors Finding Work? Germany

Ioanna doesn’t know where she’ll be in two months, but she has her fingers crossed for medical school, which bestows upon young Greeks the same prestige as attending an Ivy League school. She’s not a shoo-in. No one really is. Admission to one of Greece’s seven medical schools is based entirely on a student’s performance on the two-week, six-s...

Treating epilepsy is harder than you think
One minute, I was walking across the cafeteria floor at a highway stop restaurant. Without warning, everything suddenly faded to black. The next thing I remember: Coming to face-up on the floor with an intense headache, a pool of blood forming around my head. My husband, a small crowd, and a concerned nurse traveling with her family crouched around me until medical helped arrived. I had passed out and landed on the back of my skull. My resulting concussion led to a CT scan that was otherwise normal, and the doctors, following standard hospital protocol, sent me home. That’s only one of many pass-outs and seizures I h...

Brain Scan Reveals Old World Monkey's Surprisingly Complex Brain
The brain scan of a fossilized monkey skull has given evolutionary anthropologists new clues into the branching of humanity's ancient origins and is rewriting the current understanding of primate brain development. A team from Duke University scanned this ancient monkey fossil, first discovered in Kenya in 1997, and has revealed that its tiny brain was wrinkled and well defined, containing aspects that are actually more complex than its modern descendants. The ancient monkey, famously known as Victoriapithecus, is from the Old World primate family- an evolutionary branch that contains animals such as macaques and baboons....

Gene therapy breakthrough for cystic fibrosis
ConclusionThis RCT showed that a new non-viral-based gene therapy for cystic fibrosis was able to produce “modest” benefits in lung function compared to a placebo. The treatments were given once a month for a year. The study had many strengths, including its double-blind randomised design, recruiting adequate numbers to demonstrate real differences between groups, and using pre-specified outcomes and sub-analysis. This means we can be confident in the reliability of the findings presented. Although the findings of this study are encouraging, there are always limitations.
