No-knife procedure to avoid some open heart surgeries is now in Israel
Written by Nathan Jeffay
Jerusalem doctors have delivered the life-saving effect of open heart surgery without needing to perform the invasive, risk-prone procedure.
Michael Galbard, 69, was recently rushed to Hadassah Medical Center with a pulmonary embolism, which is a blood clot that travels to a lung artery where it blocks blood flow.
Acute pulmonary embolism is a common cause of cardiovascular death — the third most common cause in the United States, after heart attack and stroke.
A Torrance Memorial team performs minimally invasive surgery, saving the lives of a new mom and daughter
Written by John Ferrari | Photographed by Vincent Rios
Pregnancy can be an emotional time, and that’s normal. Scary isn’t normal, but sometimes pregnancy can be scary. Scary is what happened to Britney Mula and her fiancé, Tim, as they awaited the arrival of their baby girl, Savannah. Thanks to quick thinking and a hightech intervention though, this scary situation has a happy ending.
As Britney recalls, the first 35 weeks of her pregnancy “were super easy—it was great.” But in early April, five weeks away from a full-term pregnancy, her left leg felt sore. She had exercised that day and chalked it up to a good workout.
Over the next three days, however, the pain became steadily worse, and Britney went to see her OB-GYN, Cheryl Sanders, MD, of Torrance Memorial Physician Network. In less than five minutes, an ultrasound revealed an extensive blood clot.
What an Unvaccinated Sergeant Who Nearly Died of Covid Wants You to Know
CAMDEN, N.J. —
Frank Talarico, a 47-year-old police sergeant, was hospitalized for 49 days with the coronavirus. “If I was vaccinated,” he said, “I wouldn’t have gotten as sick as I did.”
…the patrol officer who was less than a year away from retirement after 24 years on the job was hospitalized twice.
After being rushed to the hospital the second time, he had a foot-long blood clot removed from his lung, a procedure that prevented certain death but caused his heart to nearly stop beating. He was placed on advanced life-support while still on the operating table. For two days a machine did the work of his heart and lungs.

Developments in blood clot treatment saved one man’s life after long COVID-19. He’s hoping it helps others, too
When Eugene Roberts heard while lying in the emergency room that he had blood clots in the main pulmonary artery to his lungs, he began to prepare to die.
“I need to tell my family I am probably not coming out of the hospital, and they need to prepare for my demise and that I’m not going to make it,” Roberts told the emergency doctor last fall.
The physician seemed perplexed and replied: “What are you talking about?”
Roberts had been a paramedic for 25 years before he began to drive buses at the Spokane Transit Authority in 2018, and he had tried to resuscitate or keep alive many patients previously with similar diagnoses.
But he knew that often, the outcomes were not good.
What he didn’t know is that technology has improved since then, and clinicians and radiologists have started using new tools and technologies to treat and remove blood clots more intesively in the last five years.
Ten years ago, Roberts might not have survived. But in 2021, his odds were much better.

COVID has led to an increased risk in developing blood clots, doctors say
HOUSTON – Trent Strickland, 28, said he felt pretty bad when he got COVID.
“Seven days we were symptomatic, and then it took another additional week just to get over the symptoms where we were able to do things normally,” Strickland explained that he didn’t do a lot of walking around while sick.
When his leg was swelling and tender, his wife knew it was a medical emergency.
“Anytime around the infection, you’re at risk of getting a blood clot,” Dr. Khaled Khalaf said.
