     Watch our Medical Headline Videos:

  •      Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) is a birth defect that affects blood flow on the left side of the heart. Dr Jack Rychik, MD, Director of the Fetal Heart Program and Professor of Pediatrics at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, says what then happens is the right ventricle tries to do the job of the left and it is very dangerous but he has a new technique for the highest risk patients.
  •      Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is cancer of the white blood cells. Dr Shannon Maude, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is studying a new treatment using a patient’s own T-cells and she is having remarkable results.
  •      A new cardiac pump has been developed and used in Japan and now has been implanted in a patient in the US for the very first time. Dr Salpy Pamboukian, MD, Mechanical Circulatory Support Device Program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham used the new ventricular assistant device (VAD) which is called Evaheart to constantly push blood into circulation. The Evaheart is a bridge to help an ailing heart while waiting for a new one. So far more than 130 Japanese have used it for two years on average while waiting for a new heart.

     Anyone who knows me knows how much I love sushi so our first special report this week is about getting kids to eat sushi if they are over 5. Nutritionist Susan Mitchell, PhD, RDN, LDN, FAND has some good advice and so does Chef Ryan Leto from Roy’s Restaurant. Another report tells you all about “Five Stress Relieving Foods” and I am so glad pistachios are included!

     In case you missed them, you may want to check our past reports, Premium Content in Archives Premium Content in ArchivesFreezing Knees, Stopping Pain Premium Content in ArchivesDate Syrup Shows Promise for Fighting Bacteria. Premium Content in the Archives may be purchased for as little as $9 for 24-hour, unlimited access. If you would like to access Premium Content for the first time click here.

     Our final report is something that hospitals worry about all the time: sepsis. Dr Nathan Shapiro, MD, MPH, Attending Physician at the Department of Emergency Medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston says it can be caused by any infection, anywhere. He is a sepsis survivor himself so that makes me listen to him even more carefully.

And there's more where that came from...
