 EP 1057B - Aortic Condition More Deadly in Women than Men | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Women who experience acute aortic dissection—a spontaneous and catastrophic tear in one of the body’s main arteries—not only are older and have more advanced disease than men when they seek medical care, but they also are more likely to die Women who experience acute aortic dissection—a spontaneous and catastrophic tear in one of the body’s main arteries—not only are older and have more advanced disease than men when they seek medical care, but they also are more likely to die, according to research published online recently in The Annals of Thoracic Surgery. Benjamin A. Youdelman, MD, from Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, who was not directly involved in this research, explained that these variances in clinical presentation indicate that women may be waiting longer to seek medical care compared to men. This may be due to female patients being “stoic,” not considering their symptoms as signs of a significant problem, and not prioritizing their care. Overall, female patients had increased mortality, although, in the last few years, mortality between the sexes was comparable, which suggests recent improvements in care. According to Dr. Gleason, better recognition, earlier diagnosis, faster and more efficient care delivery, new and improved surgical techniques—including brain perfusion and reconstruction procedures—and subsequent longitudinal surveillance have all contributed to more lives being saved. Dr. Youdelman joins us today to discuss these findings, and how family medical history is a critically important factor for identifying patients at risk and saving lives.

 EP 1056B - 3D Bioprinting for Medical Uses | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Rice University bioengineer Jordan Miller and his students cleared a major hurdle on the path to 3D printing replacement organs when they published a breakthrough technique for bioprinting "multivascular" tissues that was featured on the cover of the journal Science in 2019. Rice University bioengineer Jordan Miller and his students cleared a major hurdle on the path to 3D printing replacement organs when they published a breakthrough technique for bioprinting "multivascular" tissues that was featured on the cover of the journal Science in 2019. Their innovation allows scientists to bioprint tissues with exquisitely entangled vascular networks for transporting blood, air, lymph, and other vital fluids. The work included a stunning proof-of-principle demonstration: a hydrogel model of a lung-mimicking air sac that was rhythmically filled and emptied of air, simulating inhalation and exhalation. A basket-like network of blood vessels surrounded the air sac but did not physically touch it. As deoxygenated blood flowed past the air sac, red blood cells became oxygenated from air that diffused from the sac to the nearby blood vessels. Jordan joins us today to talk about these innovative movements forward. Want better health and nutrition?

High cholesterol is a critical conversation to have, with more than 100 million Americans affected."If I can inspire people to talk to their doctor about their statin, that’s better than getting a laugh.” --Howie MandelThat statement is on the home page of the "Take Cholesterol to Heart" webpage, an organization Howie Mandel has partnered with to raise awareness about high cholesterol and the treatment options available. It's a critical conversation to have, with more than 100 million Americans affected. Howie himself was diagnosed with high cholesterol in his late 30s, but at the time he really didn't realize the importance of the words coming out of his doctor's mouth since he felt generally "healthy." He was prescribed a statin, which he took initially but then quit taking after experiencing some undesirable muscle pain as a side effect. A year later at his doctor's visit, his cholesterol was through the roof. He then began to really listen, now understanding that his time bomb was ticking.Howie joins Dr. Friedman in this encore episode from May 2019 to discuss how dangerous high cholesterol can be, why there's not just one statin, and the importance of talking to your doctor about cholesterol and medication options.

 EP 1055B - Relief from Menopausal Symptoms, Without Drugs | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

There is good news for women aged 45 and over: A new research study shows that women can get prompt relief from the most severe and troubling menopause symptoms without drugs.   There is good news for women aged 45 and over: A new research study shows that women can get prompt relief from the most severe and troubling menopause symptoms without drugs. As many as 80% of postmenopausal women suffer from hot flashes. Heat wells up from the chest, causing flushing, sweating, and chills. At night, hot flashes interfere with sleep. Estrogen-based medications were once routinely used to treat hot flashes but have been shown to increase the risk of breast cancer and other serious problems. Isoflavone extracts from soybeans work only modestly, leaving women and their doctors with few effective options. A new study, published by the North American Menopause Society in the journal Menopause, found a powerful new diet approach that reduces moderate-to-severe hot flashes more than 80%, from nearly five per day to less than one per day. During the 12-week study, nearly 60% of women became totally free of moderate-to-severe hot flashes. Dr. Neal Barnard is president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, an Adjunct Professor at the George Washington University School of Medicine, and a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology. In 2016, he founded Barnard Medical Center in Washington, D.C., to create a new model that integrates nutrition into conventional medical care. His federally funded diabetes research revolutionized the nutritional approaches to type 2 diabetes. He has written 20 books on nutrition and health. He joins us today to talk more about this study.
