Underlying problems must be addressed. For the first time, a doctor has developed a treatment program especially for "hidden" addicts-people whose lives...

submitted by: admin on 11/24/2019
The Occluded Artery Trial published in the NEJM in 2006 concluded that opening a totally blocked artery during an acute MI has no benefit.
