Finally, a Wearable Neuromodulation Device for Overactive Bladder
As a urogynecology surgeon, Alexandra Haessler, MD, has seen firsthand the limitations of current overactive bladder (OAB) therapies. Aside from medication, the current gold standard for OAB is Medtronic's InterStim, an implantable sacral neuromodulation device that is FDA approved for the treatment of OAB as well as chronic fecal incontinence, and non-obstructive urinary retention. Haessler told MD+DI that the InterStim device works very well but it's an expensive treatment and access is limited because only a few subspecialists in any one metropolitan area are truly qualified to deliver the therapy.

EPA ’s Latest Asbestos Regulation Falls Short of Full Ban
The Environmental Protection Agency issued a new regulation on Wednesday that will make it tougher to domestically manufacture, import or sell products made with asbestos, the toxic mineral that causes mesothelioma and other diseases. The regulation closes a loophole in the partial ban of asbestos that was legislated almost 30 years ago. It will strengthen the EPA’s ability to review and prohibit the use of a long list of asbestos products that are not banned but have been long abandoned by the industry. The ruling is part of a legislative process that requires the EPA to review its regulation of asbestos under the Tox...

Why Spicy Food Makes Your Nose Run —and Why It’s Great for You
Munch a bit of habanero pepper or hot-sauce-soaked jambalaya, and you’ll notice a tingling numbness in your mouth followed by a burning sensation. If that burning sensation is sufficiently strong, your nose and eyes will start to run, and your mouth and throat will start to generate mucus. You may not be able to feel it, but your stomach and parts of your intestine will also start secreting excess fluid, says Dr. Brett Comer, a surgeon and ear, nose, and throat specialist at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. Why does all this happen? Like spraying water on a filthy car, your body turns on the waterworks...

Study compares colonoscopy polyp detection rates and endoscopist characteristics
