An attending physician in the Department of Surgery at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Dr. Jennifer Svahn is a vascular surgeon specializing in the treatment of venous diseases from varicose veins and ulcerations to blood clots. THE SPECIALIST An attending surgeon in the Department of Surgery at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Dr. Jennifer Svahn is a vascular surgeon specializing in the treatment of venous diseases from varicose veins and ulcerations to blood clots. Every year, Svahn sees thousands of patients with venous problems. WHO’S AT RISK If you have long holiday flights or drives ahead — whether to see family or take a break from family — it’s a good time to brush up on what you can do to prevent blood clots. “Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) refers to a clotted off large vein in the deeper parts of the leg, as opposed to the smaller vessels that are closer to the skin level,” says Svahn. “DVT is the medical condition that layman refer to as blood clots. Remaining seated and immobile during long flights or drives prevents the blood from circulating properly, thus increasing the risk of blood clots.” Celebrities ranging from Serena Williams to Regis Philbin have developed DVT. DVT undoubtedly occurs more commonly than it is diagnosed. “There are a lot of people walking around with clots that either aren’t symptomatic or have been misdiagnosed,” says Svahn. “For the average person on the street there ...  

Cuba's famed cigars get a foot in door of US market

By Daniel TrottaHAVANA, Dec 21 (Reuters) - Milagros Diaz has been rolling cigars for 48 years, so long she cannot even smell tobacco anymore, and she is thrilled that the U.S. market is finally opening up for her handmade Cuban "habanos".Since U.S. President Obama announced on Wednesday he would restore diplomatic ties with Cuba and start dismantling economic sanctions, Americans have been filing into the cigar shop at the Hotel Nacional in Havana, where she hand-rolls cigars using techniques little changed since the 19th century."The Americans!" she said, her face lighting up as she clapped her hands over her head. "They're not scared anymore. I'm super happy because in my 67 years I never thought I would see diplomatic relations. And we think we're going to sell more, because this is just getting started."Cigars have been Cuba's signature product ever since Christopher Columbus saw natives smoking rolled up tobacco leaves when he first sailed to the Caribbean island in 1492.Fidel Castro, who took power in Cuba's 1959 revolution, was often seen puffing on his favored, long and thin lancero model until he quit in 1985.Cuban cigars are considered by many as the best in the world - brands such as Cohiba, Montecristo and Partagas - but the U.S. trade embargo blocks their access to a market that last year imported 317.6 million premium, hand-rolled cigars.When Obama unveiled the new Cuba policy, which aims to end more than five decades of conflict, among the first forbidden Cuba...

LRAFB Exchange employee does not let disability stand in his way

PHOTO BY: William Harvey John Perry, a senior sales associate at the Army and Air Force Exchange Service’s Little Rock Air Force Base store, was given the Department of Defense Outstanding Individual With a Disability Award for 2014. Perry works in the electronics department and is shown in front of his favorite section of the store, the televisions. If John Perry had to pick out three things he loves, they would probably be electronics, singing and University of Alabama football. Perry is a senior sales associate at the Army and Air Force Exchange Service’s Little Rock Air Force Base store. The Exchange, a store for military personnel and their families, sells clothing, furniture, basic home-cleaning supplies and just about everything else. When browsing through the electronics department at the Exchange, many shoppers seek advice from Perry before they make a decision on a purchase. People on base know him as a hard worker and a personable guy, and the fact that he is in a wheelchair usually fades into the background when they start talking about what television to buy or how the Crimson Tide played over the weekend. Earlier this year, Perry was awarded the Department of Defense Outstanding Individual With a Disability Award for 2014. The award recognizes his job performance and commitment to service to the base’s airmen, retirees and families. Perry said it was an honor to even be consider...

Estes family learning how to recover from near drowning

Kim Estes, above, hugs her son Jamie, after he worked hard to take a few steps during physical therapy at Key Rehab Associates. In August, Jamie nearly drowned in a neighbor’s pool. Because he was unable to get oxygen to his brain for an extended period, Jamie suffered brain damage that has limited his ability to function. Through physical therapy, Jamie has started to relearn how to walk and make purposeful movements. (Sam Gause / The Natchez Democrat) Published 12:01am Sunday, December 21, 2014 NATCHEZ — Dr. Kim Estes was working in the clinic downhill from the emergency room at Franklin County Memorial Hospital when she heard the page that a helicopter would be coming in to airlift a patient to Jackson. A self-described “old country doctor,” Estes pulls clinic duty, works in the emergency room, sees bed patients and does wound care in the rural hospital. Jamie sleeps on his father David Estes’ chest while his mother Kim sets up Jamie’s feeding equipment. Because of his brain injury, Jamie must also relearn how to eat.

Adult survivors of childhood cancer get help with late effects of treatment

KANSAS CITY, Mo.—With her bright eyes and peaches-and-cream complexion, Ashley Dado is a picture of youthful health. You’d wonder why this 22-year-old college senior needs regular mammograms and heart scans. To understand, you have to go back to when she was 10 years old, the summer before fifth grade. The avid softball player was having a hard time holding down food that July, vomiting so often that she eventually lost 20 pounds. It wasn’t a stomach virus, as doctors first thought. It was a tumor pressing on the back of her brain. After surgery and nearly a year of chemotherapy and radiation treatments, Dado, of Overland Park, Kan., has spent the last decade cancer-free. The United States has an estimated 363,000 childhood cancer survivors like Dado. Their numbers have been increasing steadily as advances in treatment have drastically improved their odds. It’s a medical success story, but with that success has come a growing recognition that these children often must struggle with “late effects” of their treatments that may not appear until decades after they are grown. They face increased risks of heart and lung disease, problems conceiving children, difficulty remembering or solving problems and the possibility of new cancers. Cancer specialists say they should be receiving lifelong medical monitoring geared to these risks, but most don’t. Consider Dado one of the lucky ones. She was one of the first patients to enroll in a...  

Benefits of diabetes drugs dubious

In 1997, a group of experts convened by the American Diabetes Association changed the definition of type 2 diabetes, lowering the blood sugar threshold so that as many as 1.9 million more Americans had the condition. The same pattern played out in 2003, in an even bigger way, when the association changed the definition of a condition known as pre-diabetes and — overnight — 25 million more Americans were affected. In the decade that followed, the diabetes industry boomed — thanks in part to a 2008 declaration by two endocrinologygroups that pre-diabetes could be treated with drugs if diet and exercise didn't lower blood sugar levels. Last year, sales of diabetes drugs reached $23 billion, according to data from IMS Health, a drug market research firm. That was more than the combined revenue of the National Football League, Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association. But from 2004 to 2013, none of the 30 new diabetes drugs that came on the market were proven to improve key outcomes, such as reducing heart attacks or strokes, blindness or other complications of the disease, an investigation by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and MedPage Today found. Instead, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the drugs based on their ability to lower blood sugar levels, what is termed a surrogate measure. Many of the new drugs have dubious benefit; some can be harmful. "We have an entire industry — a diabetes economy — that revolv...  

Baseball Notes: More foreign intrigue added

Let’s not undersell what it means for Cuba to open its doors to Major League Baseball.In fact, let’s make a prediction.For the 2014 season, there were 19 Cuban-born players (representing 2 percent of the majors) on Opening Day rosters. Among foreign-born ranks, that trailed only the Dominican Republic (10 percent) and Venezuela (7). It also marked an all-time high for Cubans.Five or six years from now, when today’s 16-year-old Cuban nationals have entered their early 20s and have had the eyes of major league scouts trained upon them nearly 12 months a year as they play their way up the ladder of Cuban baseball, that 2 percent figure is going to pale by comparison.Let’s not mess around.The Cubans are coming, and they are going to be muscling right up next to the Dominicans and Venezuelans to grab their bigger piece of the pie. Might we see Cubans accounting for as many as 10 percent of MLB rosters by 2020?Don’t doubt it.Think big.Major league teams are.“I’ve read some reports that suggest the well in Cuba has run dry and that most of the good players are gone,” one American League executive with a background in international scouting said recently. “Well, maybe the best 25- to 30-year-olds are gone and in our league already, but they play a lot of baseball there. Kids start playing baseball at a young age and there are a bunch of teenagers who we don’t know about and are playing baseball right now and playin...
