People who need to have their heart’s mitral valve repaired may be candidates for robotically assisted heart surgery instead of open-heart surgery.
The robotic option avoids the need to cut into the chest, which usually translates to less bleeding and pain and a quicker recovery -- without compromising safety or outcomes.
Marvelous technology. I had a mitral valve repaired at Cleveland Clinic the old fashioned way in 2007, still going strong. Back then the DaVinci robot was still new, and I chose traditional surgery because I wanted to minimize time on the pump. With today's technology that is no longer a concern. Do it!
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
