If the glucose in the your blood can't be managed by exercise and a healthy diet, medication might be needed.
It’s one of the most important things offered at every annual meeting – ENDO TV interviewed Alan Dalkin, MD & Lisa Tannock, MD, Co-Chairs of the Self-Assessment Committee, Endocrine Society. Drs. Dalkin & Tannock talk about the book, the online module, and the ESAP Live sessions. To learn more, watch this interview and also check out:
It was standing room only at this popular session at the 76th Scientific Sessions in New Orleans. ADA TV interviewed the Chair, Martha L. Campbell Thompson, DVM, PhD, about the key points of the session – and we also gathered takeaways from attendees.
This is a Generic midfoot Charcot reduction strategy, whereby the normal architecture of the foot should be recreated in order to return to a plantigrade foot which evenly purchases the ground during stance. A Charcot breakdown in the midfoot could involve any combination of tarsal joints.
This newly rendered foot position renders the foot vulnerable to increased pressures and ulceration risk The strategy for reduction begins by assembling the foot from posterior to anterior, beginning with a Tendo Achilles lengthening. When the rearfoot is restored to optimal position, the soft tissue is addressed next
The soft tissue in this instance is often hypertrophic and fibrotic. This capsule must be dissected and joint exposure will benefit visualization.
With the release of the soft tissue, the forefoot segment can hinge into a more optimal angulation. The orientation of the osteotomy is designed to be perpendicular to the intended axis of the medial column This osteotomy is also placed at the junction, to divide the difference of the two overhanging segments. The fragments of overhang are removed when the osteotomy is complete
Next, the reduction can be shifted into position.
Then, with the alignment held, fixation can be placed. A ladder plating technique can be performed
Washington University and St. Louis Children’s Hospital are among the premier national institutions providing exceptional research, patient care and clinical training to impact the lives of all children with diabetes. The school has a longstanding history of major contributions to the field of endocrinology. This highly collaborative and integrative academic environment and strong infrastructure provides enhanced options for collaboration between basic science and clinical disciplines putting Washington University at the forefront for scientific discovery and treatment of endocrine diseases. Highlights of the institutional strengths include the Wolfram Syndrome International Registry and one of the largest medical scientist training programs.
Alex gives us an insight into living with diabetes
ENDO TV was privileged to speak with Lynnette K. Nieman, MD, Chair of the Cushing’s Syndrome Clinical Practice Guidelines Taskforce about the new guidelines. Dr. Nieman of the NIH gives us an overview of the CPG and how diagnosis is critical.
Mark Creager, MD, president of the American Heart Association and Bob Bonow, MD and Elliott Antman, MD, both past presidents, discuss the Atrial Fibrillation and Pacing science presented in Hotline II at the European Society of Cardiology Congress 2015 in London, including LEADLESS II and BELIEF.
People with diabetes are 30 times more likely to have a lower limb amputation than people without the condition. Every week there are more than 100 diabetes-related amputations in England alone – yet four out of five times the loss of a person’s foot, or even leg, could be avoided. Diabetes UK is Putting Feet First and fighting to save people with diabetes from unnecessary amputations. Find out more at www.diabetes.org.uk/putting-feet-first
ENDO TV talks to Corinne M. Silva, PhD and Ronald Margolis, PhD of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases about its key initiatives, its collaboration with the Endocrine Society, and the importance of attending the Meeting.
