Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
June 2017 Issue
 
 
 

Nearly every major medical breakthrough over the past 50 years can be attributed to new discoveries that were made possible through meticulous biomedical research. Many diseases and conditions that previously took a heavy toll on patients in terms of both morbidity and mortality are now either treatable or preventable thanks in large part to painstaking research that expanded the frontiers of scientific knowledge and moved the most promising basic research developments into tangible health benefits through human clinical trails. Ongoing research is also the key that will open the door to additional major medical advances and breakthroughs in the future.

Our staff at Medifocus is committed to keeping our subscribers to the Medifocus Digest Alert on Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm abreast of the latest new research developments that have recently been published in the medical literature for this condition. In this issue of the Digest Alert, you will find a focused list of hand-picked journal article references that represent the latest advances in basic and clinical research for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm. These articles represent the current state-of-the-art of the research that will hopefully lead to additional major advances and breakthroughs in the clinical management of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm. You can access the summaries of each article referenced below by simply clicking on the article Title.

We will continue to update you with the latest scientific and clinical developments through the Medifocus Digest Alert on Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm every 3 months. Thank you for your ongoing subscription to this publication.

Sincerely,
Elliot Jacob, Ph.D.

What Our Customers Are Saying...

"Ten years ago I was diagnosed as having an abdominal aortic aneurysm while undergoing a routine ultrasound. While I was told of the possible fatal consequences of a rupture, I received no guidance from any of my physicians. The MediFocus Guidebook on Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm is the only source that provided me with the information that gave me confidence that I can find expert help should I need elective surgery. I could never have located all of the detailed, valuable information contained in the Guidebook. Having access to it has given me a level of confidence that I have the latest and most important information concerning this condition."
