Statin Intolerance and Diabetes Risk: What Do We Know?
Patient Care

Carcinoid Heart Disease Clinic offers treatment options to patients with carcinoid tumors

Carcinoid heart disease affects more than half of patients with carcinoid tumors. A new multidisciplinary clinic provides individualized review of patients to determine the degree of cardiac valve involvement and the best type and timing of intervention.

Arm ergometer provides an alternative to treadmill or leg cycle stress testing

Arm ergometer exercise testing can be performed with the patient standing or seated and with or without oxygen consumption measurement. It is helpful for patients with paraplegia or symptoms that occur only during arm work.

TAH successfully bridges patients to transplant

For 5 percent of patients with advanced heart failure, contemporary assist devices fail to address the problem of biventricular failure. The total artificial heart (TAH) has emerged as a reliable strategy for successfully bridging these patients to transplant.


Patients with asthma may be at increased risk of heart attack
Research indicates patients who use medications and have emergency visits for asthma are at increased risk of heart attack. Patients with active asthma and a history of symptoms associated with heart attack should be evaluated for heart disease.
