Cedars-Sinai Medical tip sheet for Sept. 21

PRENATAL DIAGNOSTICS PIONEER JOINS CEDARS-SINAI MEDICAL CENTER
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology has served as the Los Angeles area's training and quality assurance center since the "The First Trimester Maternal Serum Biochemistry and Fetal Ultrasound Nuchal Translucency Screening Study," or BUN study, was started last year. Recently, Rosalinde Snijders, Ph.D., a pioneer in first-trimester prenatal studies and a consultant to the National Institutes of Health in the development of BUN study, has became a research scholar in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Cedars-Sinai.

MITRAL VALVE REPAIR GETS DENTIST ON THE ROAD TO RECOVERY
Mitral valve prolapse is a very common cardiac diagnosis, affecting an estimated 5 percent to 20 percent of the population. Also known as "click-murmur syndrome," the condition results when the mitral valve "prolapses" or collapses backward. Although usually a benign condition, there is sometimes a leak that progressively worsens. Since 1996, physicians at Cedars-Sinai have treated more than 100 patients annually with severe mitral regurgitation, and approximately 80 percent will undergo valve repair, a successful alternative to more conventional valve replacement.

VENTRICULAR ASSIST SURGERY ENABLES A DEFECTIVE HEART TO REST WHILE AWAITING A TRANSPLANT
A Cedars-Sinai heart transplant surgeon specializes in implanting mechanisms (Ventricular assist device surgery) that allow a defective heart to rest while awaiting a transplant. Ventricular assist device surgery as a bridge to heart transplantation or a bridge to recovery is the forefront of what's happening in heart failure cardiology and heart failure surgery today. Heart transplant surgeon Kathy Elizabeth Magliato, M.D., one of only a handful of women who do heart transplants, specializes in implanting mechanisms that allow a defective heart to rest while awaiting a transplant.
