Susan Ecenbarger PUBLISHER South Central Pennsylvania ............................................... 717-575-6691 ............................................... @MDNewsSCPenn Greetings, healthcare leaders of South Central Pennsylvania. Welcome to MD News. Our cover feature highlights WellSpan York Hospital's implementation of the Canon Alphenix 4D CT system, which a llows specia lists to perform cardiovascular procedures with better accuracy and decreased risk of infection. Performing a TAVR procedure using this technology could help patients outlive their replacement valves. Read about how WellSpan is focusing on research to combat this unexpected development. We also cover Wellspan's investment in cardiac imaging technologies, which can provide more clarity for the patient in all aspects, from preventive care to procedure techniques. These advancements help cardiology special- ists determine how aggressively to administer treatment. Our clinical section about cardiology explores findings that most nutritional supplements and specialized diets do not improve cardiovascular outcomes. A separate article highlights how paternal smoking is associated with greater risk for congenital heart defects in infants. We provide other data about cardiology as well. Additional topics in this issue include: • Valve surgery options, such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement, at WellSpan York Hospital and WellSpan Good Samaritan Hospitals, that provide better outcomes • WellSpan's Heart Failure program, which focuses on education about patient's risk factors, follow-up care and data on medications • WellSpan's vascular surgery team, offering advanced screening and elective surgery that improve survival rates for abdominal aortic aneurysms You can leverage MD News' multiple platforms to share information about your organization's capabilities and advanced technologies with referring physicians.
