Improved Recurrence Rates After Lumpectomy

Due to multimodal breast cancer therapies, 5-year local recurrence rates following lumpectomy have dropped significantly, making breast-conserving surgery (BCS) an option for more patients with breast cancer, say researchers.

Lower Mortality Rates with Culprits Compared To Multivessel Intervention

A study shows lower mortality rates when culprit-only intervention is used for patients with multivessel disease (MVD) and acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with cardiogenic shock (CS). The authors compared culprit vessel intervention (CVI) to multivessel intervention (MVI) and presented the results today as late-breaking clinical science at the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) 2018 Scientific Sessions.

Human Body In Space, New Findings

A study found humans on the moon 50 years ago; the American imagination has been captivated with dreams of space travel for the masses. As the U.S. Senate recently confirmed a controversial new NASA administrator who advocates space tourism and the exploration of Mars, perhaps the prospect of the average American ditching Earth-bound travel to explore the cosmos might be possible in the not-so-distant future. 

Diabetes Mellitus Patients Commonly Have Perioperative MACCEs

According to a study, researchers examine that Perioperative major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events (MACCEs) are more common among patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). Patients undergoing noncardiac surgery frequently have diabetes mellitus (DM) and an elevated risk of cardiovascular disease. It is unknown whether temporal declines in the frequency of perioperative major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events (MACCEs) apply to patients with DM. The study was published in Diabetes Care
