Patient Care

Early treatment may reduce risk of long-term complications for patients with Paget's disease

Asymptomatic patients who have active Paget's disease involving skeletal sites where complications are likely to develop, such as the skull, spine and long bones, may benefit from treatment early in the course of the disease.

Up to 35 percent of patients with CTEPH who undergo PTE see normalization of pulmonary hemodynamics

Specialists at Mayo Clinic's Pulmonary Hypertension Clinic use pulmonary angiography to discern whether pulmonary arterial flow obstruction is proximal enough for pulmonary thromboendarterectomy, a potentially curative procedure.

Research

Adolescents with type 2 diabetes may increase the incidence of myocardial infarction

Incidence of fatal and nonfatal myocardial infarction declined due a decrease in the burden of modifiable risk factors and an increase in use of medications to lower blood pressure and cholesterol. Childhood obesity may reverse that trend.

Frequency of combined organ transplants increased significantly in the past 5 years

Late survival after combined organ transplantation is similar to that after isolated heart transplantation, and freedom from cardiac allograft rejection and dysfunction is improved following combined organ transplantation compared with isolated transplantation.
