One electrophysiology research project is showing potential in curbing radiation exposure during catheter ablation procedure in treatment of children with tachyarrhythmias. And it doesn’t compromise effectiveness.
Using proteomics, investigators identify key regulator of protein expression in sperm samples that are positive for reactive oxygen species
The OPTIMAL trial found that sacrospinous ligament fixation (SSLF) and uterosacral ligament vaginal vault suspension (ULS) were equally safe and effective in treating vaginal prolapse at two years’ follow-up. Adding perioperative behavioral therapy with pelvic floor muscle training into the mix failed to improve either incontinence symptoms or prolapse outcomes.

Study findings support the addition of a conventional maintenance agent, in the absence of contraindications, with rituximab to reduce the risk of relapse in granulomatosis with polyangiitis patients.
Current Cleveland Clinic heart and vascular studies include two on leadless pacemakers, one on evolocumab for statin intolerance and one on gut flora reduction after dietary intervention.
Offering long-distance learning is just one of many ways Cleveland Clinic’s Nursing Institute is ensuring that nurses outside of Northeast Ohio receive the same access to professional development, resources, clinical best practices and more. Cleveland Clinic nurses are on the same team, whether they work at main campus, more than a thousand miles away at Cleveland Clinic Florida or across oceans at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi.
Early Cleveland Clinic findings show that expanded cancer genomic testing can be done quickly and often identifies potential therapeutic targets. Clinical trials are evaluating compounds specifically aimed at those targets.
The feasibility and safety of robotic intracorporeal ileal neobladder are confirmed, with good preservation of continence, in the first series of cases at Cleveland Clinic
Further research revealed heart failure patients with elevated plasma levels of TMAO, a metabolite generated in the gut, have a higher mortality risk than patients with lower TMAO levels.
