ECMO and LVAD Therapies Are Life-Savers for Dyker Heights Man
“The General saved my life,” said 64-year-old Henry Scarpati, referring to Dr. Paul Saunders, Surgical Co-Director of the LVAD Program at Maimonides Medical Center. “That’s the bottom line. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for him and his team.”
Back in November, Mr. Scarpati, a lifelong resident of Dyker Heights, felt serious chest pain on his way to visit his mother.

People over 60 face two to three times the risk of dying over next 8 years, study finds
Older people who suffer a hip fracture face a much higher risk of death soon after the injury, but the risk persists over the longer term, a large study indicates.
Researchers found that the risk of death among people over 60 nearly tripled during the first year following a hip fracture.
However, hip fractures were also still linked to a nearly twofold increased risk of dying eight years or more after the
Link was stronger for common but difficult-to-treat type of heart failure
Getting regular exercise and staying slim can lower the risk for an especially hard-to-treat type of heart failure, new research shows.
This specific type of disease is called heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). Ejection fraction is the amount of blood that's pumped out of the heart. In many people with heart failure, the heart is so weak that it doesn't pump enough blood out of the heart to meet the
Legal cannabis sales across the world totaled $150 billion last year, and sales in the United States alone are expected to reach $21.8 billion by 2020.
Israel is at the center of this huge growth because of its well-developed ecosystem of cannabis researchers, farmers, entrepreneurs, pharma and government policies.
“You can’t put cannabis into a category. It’s not just pharma and it’s not just agro-tech. It’s not just lifestyle or recreational,” Saul Kaye, a pharmacist and the chief
