        August 28, 2009 - University of Minnesota Center for Cardiovascular Repair For our public radio program, "Stem Cells, Untold Stories," we toured Doris Taylor's lab. Here, she shows us the phases of regenerating tiny, rodent hearts suspended in elaborate architectural glass bulbs with tubes feeding them — one lifeless with old cells; another one stage further, a pale "scaffold" ready for stem cells to be injected; and finally a regenerated heart — pink, pumping, alive, and beating on its own. Taylor also tells the story of a man with a rare, heart disease who says that her cutting-edge work is "building hope." To watch more videos on Taylor's works with regenerating hearts and stem cells and to download an mp3 of the produced show, visit http://speakingoffaith.org/programs/2009/stem-cells/.

                    • Heart Attacks in Teen Athletes


                      from Lee Memorial Health System Added 387 0 0

                      Each year more than 3,000 young people between the ages of 15 and 34 die from a sudden heart attack. Many are athletes. “When you hear about some young athlete who’s in great shape otherwise, that he died suddenly of some unknown reason then we actually statistically know there’s risk of abnormality in the heart called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy,” says Dr. Vladimir Illic cardiologist with Lee Memorial Health System. That’s a condition where the heart muscle thickens abnormally, without any outward symptoms. Detecting the condition starts with a physical exam, which looks at blood pressure and checks for heart murmurs and arrhythmias. “Those conditions tend to run in families so family history would be very important,” says Dr. Illic. If it triggers further investigation, some experts advise two tests: one is an EKG, which measures electrical rhythms in the heart. The other is the echocardiogram, which is an ultrasound. “Which is the other sonic examination of the heart to assess cardiac structure, chambers, function and lots of those reasons for sudden cardiac death could be found that way,” says Dr. Illic. Testing all teen athletes has proven controversial because of the expense. But identifying just who might need the additional screening could save lives. “Physical examinations an EKG and echocardiogram should give you an answer you know does that person have that condition,” says Dr. Illic. The chance of finding an abnormality may be small, but the consequences of missing one could be catastrophic.
