Invasive electrode evaluation should be undertaken only to determine a course of action for epilepsy surgery, not to fish for unexpected results or provide more evidence for an already clear decision. Here’s a great case example
For a young Canadian with anterior leaflet mitral valve prolapse, the opportunity to undergo robotically assisted valve repair close to his family in the Middle East just couldn’t be beat.
Endovascular therapy hasn’t been proven to improve survival over medical management for type B thoracic aortic dissection, but this case shows good outcomes are achievable in carefully selected patients.
This case of a 13-year-old concussed athlete with intractable symptoms yields lessons in the nuances of assessment, how to manage family expectations and the imperative for a menu of care options.
Images tell the story in this case of a highly functional elderly man who benefited from an inventive endovascular strategy for a large pseudoaneurysm close to the sternum and prior CABG grafts.
Here’s why Cleveland Clinic founded its homegrown academic research organization 25 years ago — and how it continues to shape medical progress and maintain trust in the clinical trials process.
Following bowel obstruction surgery, a Utah man has been able to thrive thanks to a lifetime of healthy habits. Cleveland Clinic’s Chief Wellness Officer Michael Roizen, MD, says he is a ‘model’ patient.
