News and Notes

A very short post tonight, as I’m pretty busy, but I did find several articles that you will find interesting: There’s yet another report showing that Adult Stem Cells taken from heart muscle can regenerate damaged hearts. But this time the news is even better: Doctors have found a way to boost their effectiveness.

A member of the Adult Congenital Heart Association is once again in the news, as Jim Langill took on the Boston Heart Walk today (September 13, 2008). I hope it went well, Jim!

Has your doctor ever described you as a “difficult patient”? That’s a good thing!

And finally, things are really happening down at Emory University Hopsital, where I go for Adult Congenital Heart Defect care.  Emory is one of only ten hospitals nationwide that is testing a new procedure to insert heart valves without cutting the chest open!
