Patient Care

S-ICD systems benefit patients with structural cardiac abnormalities or difficult vascular access

The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator system does not require intracardiac leads to provide defibrillation for patients at risk of sudden cardiac death caused by ventricular tachyarrhythmias.

Suicidal and abused patients need time, attention in the ED

Troubled people frequently turn to the emergency department for help, but few guidelines exist to help providers deal with them. Assessing all patients for risk and asking the right questions can help save lives.

Hip arthroscopy requires experienced surgeons and dedicated aftercare

Patients with hip disorders including gluteus medius tears, internal snapping hip syndrome and femoroacetabular impingement may benefit from advanced arthroscopic techniques and appolications.


Clinical trials enroll patients with ANCA-associated vasculitis

The biggest challenge in the management of AAV is the long-term maintenance of remission with minimum cumulative drug toxicities. The focus of phase III randomized controlled trials has shifted from remission induction trials to remission maintenance trials.

Prostate cancer clinic offers advanced, novel clinical options

Mayo Clinic studies have found salvage MR-guided cryoablation of localized prostate cancer recurrence to be safe, feasible and effective, offering an alternative to patients who typically would have radiation as the next course of treatment.
