Japan clears Augmenix ’ s SpaceOAR
Augmenix said yesterday it won Shonin approval from the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare for its SpaceOAR system. The SpaceOar is designed to separate the prostate from the rectal wall during radiation treatment for prostate cancer, the Belford, Mass.-based company said.

9/11 Just Claimed Another Life -- The Firefighter Who Made Congress Care
WASHINGTON — While New York City firefighter Ray Pfeifer was slowly dying of Sept. 11-related cancer, he always called himself the luckiest man alive. Pfeifer, who died Sunday from that illness at the age of 59, would probably say his luck held. If not for chance, Pfeifer would have died on Sept. 11, 2001, when 343 other city firefighters perished in the collapsing World Trade Center complex, including all the men on duty at Pfeifer’s Engine 40. “9/11 happened, I’m supposed to work. I lived. Why? Because I switched my tour,” Pfeifer told HuffPost in March before laying a wreath at the Tomb of ...

So, it shouldn’t be a surprise when couples have trouble starting a family that male fertility plays a role – more often than most people realize.

For years, it has often been assumed that problems getting pregnant were all about the female half of the couple. Thanks to extensive media coverage of research, sperm issues and the role of male infertility are now mainstream topics. Still,...

Lipid rescue therapy for local anesthetic toxicity: is less more
DISCUSSION: Most of the “adverse events” associated with lipid rescue therapy have occurred after administration of relatively high doses. Although there have been no good studies demonstrating the maximum “safe” dose of intralipid for lipid rescue therapy, many authors recommended limiting the dose to that recommended by the FDA for nutritional support: 12.5 mL/kg (lean body mass) per day total. In specific cases it may be reasonable to consider extending the infusion beyond this, but such situations are likely rare. In this patient, who did not appear to have cardiovascular instability, it is...
