Title Changed

Breaking News:
We changed the blog title into:
Broken Heart
Doctors of hearts

Pentalogy of Cantrell

Four-year-old Zhang Weiyuan of China has a condition called pentalogy of Cantrell in which the heart protrudes from the body. Zhang is shown here at Shengjing Hospital in Shenyang, in northeast China's Liaoning province Nov. 21. Doctors usually try surgery to correct the exceedingly rare condition, which leaves the heart vulnerable to injury if untreated.(Li Shuangqi/AP Photo)

Pentalogy of Cantrell is a rare syndrome that causes defects involving the diaphragm, abdominal wall, pericardium, heart and lower sternum. The syndrome has five characteristic findings: Omphalocele; Anterior diaphragmatic hernia; Sternal cleft; Ectopia cordis; Intracardiac defect: either a ventricular septal defect or a diverticulum of the left ventricle.

Ethics of bloggers

In brief, the medical blogging is not easy.
we are just starting.
But, we have to obey the ethics while writing

Yes, ethics.
Because we are concerned with secrets of patients.
Here is the items of the code of ethics:
Clear representation of perspective -
Confidentiality -
Commercial Disclosure -
Courtesy -

Twins and heartbreak

I read this article today

Conjoined Twins Ends in Heartbreak

Oh what a heart break!

statins and cancer!

A nice blog I had seen today.
It is concerned with pediatric oncology, cancer,...
Of not, I found a link on statin and risk of cancer:

Also, I will search this subject:
Surrogate End Points and FDA Approval: A Tale of 2 Lipid-Altering DrugsPsaty and LumleyJAMA.2008; 299: 1474-1476.
I need acess to JAMA....

*عزيزى د اسحق

إليك اهدى هذه القصة القصيرة التى لم تكتمل بعد
لا انسى عندما حكيت لى فى بدء تعليمنا للطب

عن هذا المصاب بتيبس المفاصل

و كيف رهبنا أن كل مفاصله تيبست و كانت حالته مزرية
و حكيت لى كيف نجا؟
من و حى مذكرات مريض اخر بتيبس المفاصل

وصل المرض إلى قلبه و تأثر الأبهر لكن قلبه كان مطمئنا و لا يزال اكتب لكم
يا أوجاعى و آلامى العزيزة...أهلا
ها هى الآلام تأتى زاحفة على مدى ساعات تأتى مدركة طريقها جيدا
و مدركة أننى لا أملك لها أية وسيلة للاعتراض
تعرف جيدا أن طريقها امنا سالما إلى كل المفاصل
لا ينغصه شئ ثم تتبعها صعوبة فى الحركة
أنا نفسى اعتدت ان استسلم لهذه الالم و أن اصاحبها
ليس كما يطلب الأطباء أن نصاحب المرض اضطرارا
لكن وصلت لمرحلة الاقتناع بأن هذه الالام و هذا المرض شئ منى
كيف اكرهه و ابغض حضوره
هل المبتلى بطفل معاق يعترض عليه؟
هل يكرهه؟
هل يكره حضوره و رؤيته؟
هل ينساه؟

Heart of diabetic children 2

why we emphasize on that?
the prevention of cardiac complications can be done
we need a short message like a health education for parents and children to protect them from these complications

*regular check up for lipid and IRS markers,..
*Resting HR and BP

What else do you suggest?
can we make the mesage as images, cartoons,..... to be easy and lovely for children?
can we Dr O Hassona?

As in thils link on Prevent diabetes problems: Keep your heart and blood vessels healthy. But it will be concerned and simplified for children:

Heart of diabetic children 1

In that day of world diabetes day;
i will try to summarize my children with diabetic heart syndrome and diabetic cardiomyopathy from my thesis and my case reports:

*I will not forget the child with HOCM and type 1 DM

*Also, the adolescent girl with start of complications on CV system in my thesis.

*I will not forget the first child NE3MA with diabetic coma I had managed with my seniors while I was a houseofficer. she was in deep coma and almost dead. The question in this problem was the level of hypoglycemic coma that will affect her conscioussness level and brain maturation. but against all theories she regained her sensorium and intelligence with no sequele but with our surprise....!

Tell us about your impression on heart of your diabetic children.

child obesity and heart diseases

obesity and hypertension
Oct. 10, 2008 (New York) -- The rate of premature heart disease among obese teens is set to triple, and the increasing prevalence of high blood pressure in children is a major culprit, experts warned at a news conference sponsored by the American Society of Hypertension.

High rate of prediabetes detected in obese children

Metabolic syndrome (a group of conditions including a large waist size, high blood pressure, high blood glucose, and high levels of fats in the blood) makes a person more likely to get cardiovascular disease (disease of the heart and blood vessels).

Doctors would like to know more about what happens in the body when a person gets metabolic syndrome. This would help them find the condition sooner and come up with better ways of treating people.
