COVID-19 Alert: Heart and Kidney Patients Should Keep Taking Their Medicines
As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds, inaccurate medical information has flooded social media and other channels. One potentially lethal example is that patients who take renin-angiotensin system (RAS) blockers, particularly angiotensin II type 1 receptor blockers (ARBs), may be more susceptible to the virus.
However, in an article published in the American Heart Association journal Hypertension, Murray Epstein, M.D., emeritus professor of medicine at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, and colleagues warn there is little credible or consistent evidence to back up this concern. Equally important, foregoing these important medications would dramatically increase health risks for hundreds of millions of patients with hypertension, congestive heart failure, and chronic kidney disease.

Survival after Lung Cancer Surgery Similar in Comparison of Segmentectomy with Lobectomy
Traditionally, many surgeons performing a segmentectomy to remove a limited portion of the lung affected by cancer will switch to a lobectomy – removal of an entire lobe of the lung – during surgery if nearby lymph nodes also test positive for cancer.
