Study finds high survival rate for elderly patients with implantable defibrillator
Of patients over age 65 who received an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) after surviving sudden cardiac arrest or a near-fatal arrhythmia, almost 80 percent survived two years -- a higher rate than found in past trials performed to demonstrate the efficacy of the devices in this situation, according to a study today in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

Offenders' deadly thoughts may hold answer to reducing crime
It's something many of us may say in anger, but don't really mean. However, for a small percentage of the population homicidal thoughts are very real. Matt DeLisi, an Iowa State University professor of sociology and criminal justice, says identifying criminal offenders with homicidal ideation could change how we sentence and treat some of the most serious offenders.

How the heart turns into bone
Connective tissue cells in the heart turn into bone-producing cells in response to injury, UCLA scientists report Nov. 17 in Cell Stem Cell. The discovery helps explain why some people who survive heart damage develop abnormal calcium deposits -- the main component of bone -- in the valves or walls of the heart. The researchers also show that heart calcification can be prevented in mice by blocking an enzyme that regulates bone mineralization with small molecules. (2016-11-17)
