Uterine fibroids, which are noncancerous tumors in the uterus, have raised concerns of fertility and cancer in women. I'm Shelby Cullinan for the dailyRx News Network. Two recent studies found that many women had fears that uterine fibroids would lead to future health problems, including cancer. Women also had fears that they would eventually need a hysterectomy. The researchers, led by Dr. Elizabeth A Stewart from the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the Mayo Clinic and Mayo Medical School in Minnesota, also found that African American women reported more severe symptoms of uterine.
Fibroids, including heavy or longer than normal menstrual periods, than other women. African American women with fibroids had significantly more symptoms and we had some indication that this might be true before. But what we found is that the disparities in fibroids for African American women were confounded at every step. They had more symptoms before seeking treatment Consult with your physician to learn more about the treatments for uterine fibroids. To keep up to date with all the latest health news visit dailyRx.

Dr. Paul MacKoul MD Makes Minimally Invasive Fibroid Removal Possible Helenes Story
I have been suffering from fibroids and endometriosis for over 20 years, and I had very intense pain, back problems, lower stomach problems, headaches from being so anemic. And it controlled my life. I think my first procedure was probably '95. And so since '95, I've been going through different procedures with different doctors, and nothing worked. I would do the surgery, and I would be fine for a month or two. And then I would say the longest I've ever been OK was for three months, and then bam here it comes again.
One of the doctors that I went into, he told me that the best advice that he could give me was to just go ahead and have a hysterectomy. And then he started laughing and said that that was his best advice for the day. And then I told him, thanks, but no thanks. And I walked out. I had a cyst rupture on my right ovary. And I ended up in the emergency room where I had to do surgeries to remove my appendix, because it kind of fused my appendix and my fallopian tube together.
After I got out of that surgery, my GYN at the time, she told me, I want you to go and see Dr. MacKoul. She said, this is the only doctor the only doctor that I want you to see. I went in to see Dr. MacKoul. He was pleasant, and he took the time out to explain to me what was going on and do all his little drawings. Dr. MacKoul recommended a LAAM myomectomy, because I wanted to retain my uterus. He told me if I had any questions just to call him,.
And he would explain anything that I didn't quite understand. Then he actually came and sat with me before I actually was taken in for the surgery. And he went over again what we're going to be doing, and then he told my family to just trust him. I was in good hands. I did not come across a specialist until I actually met Dr. MacKoul. Not only did he tell me what my problem was, not only did he tell me what mistakes had been done with my surgeries prior.
That caused my endometriosis to get worse but he fixed the problem. I haven't had any pain no back problems, no stomach problems, no headaches. I finally decided it was time for me to do what I wanted to do. Three months later, my dad had asked me, would I go with him to Africa. And I told him, sure, and so we went to Africa for a month. This was something that I would not have done prior to having the surgery. The energy that I didn't feel I had before to be able to do.
My master's, now I'm working on my master's. I have the energy where I'm doing my master's, working, and also helping my niece with her homework, and now having to travel with her to go to her different events. I wish I had met Dr. MacKoul before. I wish I had heard about him before I went through all those other procedures. But looking back, with everything that I went through, I'm always telling other people about Dr. MacKoul. He is a true specialist. He is the only specialist I would recommend.
Young Patients May Have Worse Fibromyalgia Symptoms
When it comes to patients with fibromyalgia, being young may not be better than being older. I m Kendra Rowland for the dailyRx News Network. Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue and tenderness. A recent study found that young and middleaged people with fibromyalgia reported worse symptoms and quality of life than older patients. Dr. Terry Oh, a physical and rehabilitation physician at Mayo Clinic led the study, and its findings were presented at the American College of Rheumatology's annual meeting. Symptom severity and quality of life differs across the 3 age groups. And we observed worse symptom severity and quality.
How Culture Might Affect Menopause
I'm Erin White with today's health news. Where a woman is from may have an effect on the way she experiences menopause. A new study looked at 8,200 older women and men in North America and Europe to see how menopause affected their sex lives and relationships. The results showed similar complaints in different countries, but the extent of suffering for common symptoms like vaginal dryness, hot flashes and weight gain varied by nationality. According to this study, women in societies that revere the elderly tended to have less bothersome menopausal.
Morton Plant Hospital How the Valve Clinic Works with Referring Physicians
Dr. Spriggs I'm Douglas Spriggs. I'm an Interventional Cardiologist at Morton Plant Hospital and a member of the Valve Clinic Team. Dr. Ofenloch I'm Dr. John Ofenloch, Cardiovascular Surgeon and member of the Valve Clinic Team at Morton Plant Hospital. The Valve Clinic is a multidisciplinary group of physicians that focus on a specific problem, and in this case, we focus on aortic stenosis. The program begins with the patient being referred to the Valve Clinic and taking an assessment of what testing has already been completed and what testing needs to be performed.
Our Valve Clinic Coordinator spends a great deal of time with their office arranging for the upcoming tests, and the tests can often be performed locally without the patient having to travel to the Valve Clinic. Once all of the assessments have been completed, the patient is then brought physically to the Valve Clinic for an appointment where we can review all of the available testing. Subsequently, the plan of the Valve Clinic Team is provided back to the referring physician by usually a personal phone call and often by electronic communication so that the referring.
Physician knows exactly what the upcoming plan is. The idea is that we offer them under the share care philosophy, where the patient is brought to Morton Plant for a very specialized program and procedure and then returned to the care of their primary physician and cardiologist for ongoing followup. Dr. Spriggs The Valve Clinic Team is interested in designing a treatment plan for that patient, but also followup care after the procedure is performed is important and that's where the communication with the referring physician is critical. Our goal is to communicate those needs to the referring physician so that they can participate.
Another treatment for osteoarthritis of the knee
Another treatment for osteoarthritis of the knee MRGuided Focused Ultrasound for the Management of Osteoarthritic Knee Pain A Japanese study published in BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders and reported in Medscape showed that local bone denervation by MRguided focused ultrasound has been demonstrated as a promising tool for pain relief of bone metastases. Eight patients with medial knee pain and eligible for total knee replacement were included. MRguided focused sonication treatments were applied the target sites. The pain intensity during walking was assessed on a 100 mm visual analog scale VAS before and after treatment. Six patients showed immediate pain alleviation.
Flow Diversion for Cerebral Aneurysm Treatment Narrated Animation.
Flow diversion is a newer endovascular technique used to treat brain aneurysms. The procedure involves placing a flowdiverting device a specially designed metal mesh tube in the blood vessel adjacent to the aneurysm to divert blood flow AWAY from the aneurysm. In this procedure, a catheter guided by a wire is inserted through the femoral artery at the groin and threaded all the way to the affected brain artery. The guidewire is removed. A microcatheter carrying the flowdiverting device is introduced inside the initial catheter and is navigated PAST the aneurysm opening, without entering it. The device is then deployed.
