More American Men with Early-Stage Prostate Cancer Could Opt Out of Immediate Treatment

A new report on Swedish men with non-aggressive prostate cancer suggests that a lot more American men could safely choose to monitor their disease instead of seeking immediate radiation treatment or surgery.

Modified Natural Cycle IVF More Cost-Effective and Affordable than Traditional IVF

An cost and live birth analysis of 6 conventional IVF treatment strategies against 6 similar, corresponding strategies using modified natural cycle IVF showed significant savings with the latter method. This lowers the barriers of access, particularly for young couples who tend to have fewer resources, that may not be able to afford conventional fertility treatment.

Are Hot Flashes Genetic?

Dr.CarolynCrandall5.jpg

Researchers may have found a clue to why some women experience hot flashes or night sweats and others don’t: gene variants affecting a brain receptor regulating estrogen release and is present across all ethnicities. It appears that women who have these variants are more likely to have hot flashes.

Cesarean Section Carries Increased Risk for Postpartum Venous Thromboembolism (VTE)

Roughly one-third of all births in Europe and North America now occur via cesarean section (CS). Following any birth, women are at an increased risk for a venous thromboembolism (VTE), but it’s believed that CS leaves women more vulnerable to VTE, blood clots, than vaginal delivery (VD). A new study published in CHEST determined that there is a link between CS and an increased absolute risk of VTE, including pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis. Investigators found that CS was associated with a higher rate of overall VTE risk, with emergency CS associated with the greatest risk.
