Uterine fibroids are highly prevalent in women over 35. As more women delay childbearing, techniques to remove uterine fibroids (leiomyomas) while also preserving fertility are of increasing importance.
Women who have type 2 diabetes (T2D) without cardiovascular disease have impaired coronary flow reserve (CFR) compared to men. CFR—the ratio of stimulated to rest myocardial blood flow (MBF) assessed by cardiac PET—is a well-established indicator of coronary microvascular dysfunction and predictor of death.
Nearly 71 million people globally are projected to be displaced from their homes due to disasters, conflicts and disease outbreaks by the end of 2019.

Study explores the optimal time to measure glucose levels after TJA
A periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) after total joint arthroplasty (TJA) is often a devastating experience for a patient, involving a long treatment process that dramatically reduces a patient’s quality of life.
The Center for Oncoendocrinology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital was established to provide expert endocrine care for cancer patients during and after treatment. Endocrinologists at the Center, a program of Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center, can provide specialized knowledge of endocrine issues that may affect your cancer patient.
The Setting Targets Achieving Results Diabetes Mellitus (STAR-DM) Program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) offers your high-risk diabetes patients an intensive management program to meet their clinical targets, such as achieving their A1C target or avoiding too-low blood glucose.
