When you think about the Internet and e-commerce security, you may have an image of a computer geek, hacking away in isolation, breaking into corporate sites through sheer brilliance.

Unlike an appendectomy, which cures appendicitis, bypass surgery doesn’t eliminate your risk for angina or heart attack. In fact, people who have had bypass surgery are at increased risk for serious heart problems compared with the rest of the population because they still have the underlying disease, atherosclerosis. This disease caused the initial coronary artery blockages and can cause later blockage, either in the patient’s original arteries or in the bypass grafts. Continue reading “Exercise Testing After Bypass Post 2”
People who have coronary artery bypass graft surgery hope the procedure will prevent heart attacks and help them live longer. But bypass, which adds blood vessels to detour around blocked arteries, is not perfect: While it can greatly improve blood flow, it may not restore circulation to all of the heart areas starved of blood. If a patient has angina, or chest pain, after bypass surgery, cardiologists usually take this as a sign that blockages may remain. In these cases, patients frequently are given a thallium stress test to determine how well the surgery improved blood flow, and whether patients need further treatment.

The goal of treatment of tennis elbow is to relieve pain and allow the tendon in the elbow to heal. This can usually be done without surgery (called conservative treatment).
Basic treatment options include:
Conservative treatment such as rest, the use of ice and anti-inflammatory drugs, and a rehabilitation program.
Surgery may be considered if there is persistent elbow pain after a reasonable period of conservative treatment. Surgery usually involves cutting (releasing) the tendon, and removing damaged tissue from the tendon. In some cases, tendon tears may be repaired. Continue reading “Tennis Elbow”
