International Day of the heart 2020

Heart BeatingEvery year on this day we find ourselves reminding everyone how important it is to keep our heart strong. We talk about healthy food, physical exercise, stress reduction and the importance of smoking cessation.

 

However, 2020 is a special year, with all our interest and focus turned towards the COVID-19 pandemia, and indeed, cardiac patients are at higher risk for more severe infection and also long term side effects affecting the heart after acute disease. But the biggest impact of COVID-19 on our hearts has been the avoidance of medical attention out of fear of infection.

 

So we use the international heart day to remind everyone that we need a healthy heart to stay healthy! Your cardiac symptoms can’t wait for the new COVID-vaccine, and should anyone experience any symptoms, do not wait until you get a heart attack, don’t exhaust your heart with the wrong heart beat, see a cardiologist and get your heart fixed in time. This will save your life and help you stay strong fighting COVID!

Shoulder dislocation

Shoulder anatomy and dislocation

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in our body. It consists of a ball known as the humeral head and a socket known as the glenoid. The high mobility of the shoulder requires a very shallow socket (glenoid). Around the socket there is a bumper (cartilage rim) called labrum which, together with a series of ligaments connecting the ball to the socket, prevent the ball slipping out of joint. These are called static stabilisers of the shoulder joint. On top of these structures there are four muscles called the rotator cuff connecting the scapula (shoulder blade) with the humerus (arm bone) and dynamically stabilising the shoulder when they contract. When the shoulder dislocates the traumatic force overcomes the blocking effect of the stabilisers and the labrum and ligaments can tear if the patient is young. Sometimes the rotator cuff muscles can tear if you are over 40 years of age. The shoulder can dislocate anteriorly (more common) or posteriorly. Shoulder dislocation is an emergency and requires urgent relocation under anaesthesia followed by a sling for 2 weeks and physiotherapy. A clinical examination by a specialised shoulder surgeon is recommended for active patients involved in sports activity.

Melanoma

ABCDE Melanoma

Early diagnosis of melanoma is the key to ensuring a favorable prognosis.

 

The identification and excision of melanomas in early stages ensures a good patient prognosis but requires monitoring and thorough skin examination periodically. In fact, survival rates are around 90-95% in cases of non-invasive melanomas. However, in their infiltrating forms melanoma has high mortality rates, with survival rates lower than 20% when it has spread to other organs

Oncology. #Precise diagnosis makes personalized medicine a reality

ADN

Nowadays, we know more about cancer tan we could have imagined a few years ago.

 

Traditionally, cancer was classified by its location in the body and treatment was decided based on the affected organ: lung, breast, solon, skin, blood, lymph nodes, etc. However, today it’s known that it is more precise to differentiate each type of cancer by the type of genetic mutation that causes each type.
