FDA approves new melanoma drug that turns on the immune system to fight deadly cancers
 
03:52
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved a new immunotherapy drug to treat advanced melanoma, signaling a paradigm shift in the way the deadly skin cancer is treated. The drug, Keytruda, was tested on more than 600 patients who had melanoma that had spread throughout their bodies. Because so many of the patients in the early testing showed significant long-lasting responses, the study was continued and the FDA granted the drug “breakthrough therapy” status, allowing it to be fast-tracked for approval. The largest Phase 1 study in the history of oncology, the research was conducted at UCLA and 11 other sites in the U.S., Europe and Australia. Keytruda, formerly known as MK-3475, is an antibody that targets a protein called PD-1 that is expressed by immune cells. The protein puts the immune system’s brakes on, keeping its T cells from recognizing and attacking cancer cells, said Dr. Antoni Ribas, the study’s principal investigator and a professor of medicine in the division of hematology–oncology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

New device to treat spinal stenosis offered at UCLA
 
02:58
Instead of permanently joining (fusing) vertebrae with metal rods and screws, and therefore restricting movement, the new procedure uses the Anatomic Facet Replacement System (AFRS) device that attaches to each of two adjacent vertebrae with a movable joint that mimics the spine's natural joint. Update: This procedure is no longer available. Please contact the UCLA Spine Center for alternative treatment options at www.spinecenter.ucla.edu or 310-319-3475

Heart In A Box: Beating Heart Technology at UCLA could revolutionize field of heart transplantation
 
02:52
'Beating heart' technology could revolutionize field of heart transplantation. Learn more at: http://transplants.ucla.edu http://uclahealth.org/AbbasArdehali http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYWmYJNg5Jw Contact us at 1-800-UCLA-MD1 or http://uclahealth.org/PRS for more information. The heart transplantation team at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical is currently leading a national, multicenter phase 2 clinical study of an experimental organ-preservation system that allows donor hearts to continue functioning in a near-physiologic state outside the body during transport. The Organ Care System (OCS), developed by medical device company TransMedics, works this way: After a heart is removed from a donor's body, it is placed in a high-tech OCS box and is immediately revived to a beating state, perfused with oxygen and nutrient-rich blood, and maintained at an appropriate temperature. The device also features monitors that display how the heart is functioning during transport. The current standard of transporting donor hearts in iceboxes in a non-functioning state, which has been used for decades, requires the restarting of the heart once it has been placed inside the recipient. "The concept of transplanting a donor heart in a beating state is revolutionary," said Dr. Abbas Ardehali (http://uclahealth.org/AbbasArdehali), surgical director of the heart and lung transplantation program at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and principal investigator of the OCS trial. "This promising technology may improve the function of the donor heart, because it remains in a near-physiologic state. It can also help us better assess the suitability of a potential donor, since we can test the heart in the device." Ardehali said the technology could also lead to better tissue matching between donor hearts and recipients because the box would grant the transplant team more time to test the heart for potential rejection factors.

Advances in Corneal Transplantation
 
03:12
New techniques for corneal transplantation are associated with improved safety and more rapid visual recovery along with equal or, in some cases, better visual results, says Anthony Aldave, M.D., director of the Cornea Service at UCLAs Jules Stein Eye Institute. Corneal transplantation, which replaces a patients damaged cornea with donor corneal tissue, is the most common and most successful type of human transplant surgery; approximately 40,000 procedures are performed in the United States each year. The cornea — the clear tissue that forms the front of the eye — can become diseased, affecting vision and requiring transplantation as a result of a variety of conditions, including progressive distortion in the shape of the cornea (keratoconus), scarring secondary to infection or injury, and inherited dysfunction of the corneas inner layer, leading to corneal swelling (Fuchs dystrophy). Until recently, the procedure of choice for most of these patients was what is called a full-thickness corneal transplant, also known as a penetrating keratoplasty, in which the full thickness of the cornea is replaced, even if only a portion of the cornea is diseased. But several new procedures have emerged that are designed to remove and replace only the affected layer of the cornea. For patients whose vision is affected by swelling in the corneas inner-most layer, the Descemet stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK) — which involves peeling off the diseased inner layer and replacing it with the inner-most layer from a donor cornea — avoids the astigmatism (irregular shape of the cornea, resulting in blurred vision) commonly associated with full-thickness corneal transplantation. Visual recovery is also more rapid than with a full-thickness transplant, Dr. Aldave says. By contrast, the deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) involves replacing everything but the corneas inner layer. The primary advantage of this procedure, for patients with corneal scarring or keratoconus but with a healthy endothelium (inner layer), is that it eliminates the risk of rejection and failure of the endothelial cells that are critical to keeping the cornea clear. As the patient retains his or her own corneal endothelium, the donor tissue does not need to have a healthy endothelium, and thus the requirements for the donor cornea are less stringent. The newest approach to corneal transplantation uses a femtosecond laser — the same technology employed for making flaps in LASIK surgery — to produce incisions in the cornea that enable the surgeon to exercise far more precision in what is removed, so that the transplanted tissue fits into the cornea like interlocking pieces of a puzzle. As with the DSEK, this gives us the potential to dramatically decrease postoperative astigmatism because of the precision of the laser, and it strengthens the wound site so that it is more resistant to traumatic opening in the event of eye injury following surgery, Dr. Aldave says. The news is also good for patients with diseased corneas who are not candidates for transplantation using donor tissue. Instead, some of these patients may be candidates for an artificial-cornea transplant. These are patients who had previously been told there was nothing that could be done for them, Dr. Aldave notes. With the new approaches, Dr. Aldave concludes, We can now customize corneal transplant surgery for the individual patient, resulting in better outcomes. www.jsei.org

Therapeutic hypothermia used to treat L.A. Marathon cardiac arrest victim
 
03:43
Jay Yim, 21, had worked on improving his fitness since age 15. In preparation for this year's Los Angeles Marathon on March 21, the University of Southern California pre-med student had been training with a marathon club and regularly did 10-mile runs on his own. The day before the race, he had a carbo-loading dinner with his club members. According to his brother Roy, who spoke with him that night, Jay sounded fine and ready to go. On race day, Roy watched his brother's progress on the marathon website. "They had a feature that allowed you to monitor a runner as he passed each milepost," Roy said. "The computer estimate said, based on his progress, he'd finish in 3:15." But as Jay reached mile 18, something went terribly wrong. He grabbed his chest and collapsed onto the road. He'd suffered a cardiac arrest. In the first in a string of amazing events that would ultimately save his life, Jay happened to fall about 70 yards from Josh Sewell, a motorcycle officer with the Los Angeles Police Department. Sewell immediately moved Jay off the course and began CPR. "His eyes were rolling back in his head, he had no pulse and was not breathing," Sewell recalled. "He was in full cardiac arrest." Another amazing event occurred when, somehow, out of the crowd emerged off-duty physician Dr. Charles Chandler, a clinical professor of surgery at UCLA. He and Sewell continued CPR and called for an ambulance. "After about four to five minutes, we had return of a strong pulse, but he was not spontaneously breathing," Chandler said. "The paramedics arrived, took over CPR, prepared him for transport and I called our ER to give them what information we had. We got Jay loaded onto the ambulance and taken to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center." At the hospital's emergency department, a team of UCLA emergency physicians and staff quickly went to work to stabilize Jay and begin the investigation into what would cause a 21-year old to experience cardiac arrest. Heading Jay's care was Dr. Paul Vespa, a professor of neurology and neurosurgery and director of UCLA's Neurointensive Care Unit. "When he arrived at the medical center, Jay was in a coma and on a ventilator, in very critical condition," Vespa said. "His brain was certainly at risk for permanent injury due to his heart attack, and we had little time to reverse this effect or even assure that he would live." Vespa decided to use a state-of-the-art procedure known as therapeutic hypothermia on Jay to maximize his chances for recovery. "This procedure can be lifesaving in cases like Jay's, where the brain and other organs have been deprived of oxygen for a significant amount of time and the patient is at risk of permanent organ damage or death," Vespa said. "It is not widely used because it requires specialized equipment and trained staff, but it is fully approved." Vespa and his team inserted a catheter into a large vein and began feeding cooling fluid into Jay's body. "The process works much like a radiator cools an engine," Vespa said. "The machine runs 24/7 and lowers the body temperature to 89.6 degrees. The cooling protects the body's organs until the brain has time to reboot. We kept Jay chilled for approximately 72 hours, at which time he awoke from his coma. Follow-up tests showed he has no permanent damage to his brain or other organs. He should have a perfect recovery." Jay was moved out of intensive care on March 30 and is expected to be released from the hospital in the next few days to begin rehabilitation, hospital officials said. Doctors are still unsure of what caused his cardiac arrest. Jay's family has remained with him since his accident, and he has had another frequent visitor. "I've spent a lot of time in Jay's room, encouraging his family and watching for signs of his recovery," said Sewell, the first person to come to Jay's aid. The LAPD motorcycle officer spent much of the week following the marathon in Jay's hospital room and spoke with him for more than an hour after he regained consciousness. "We've bonded, that's for sure," Sewell said. "He's a great guy. I'm just glad I was in the right place at the right time and was able to be a part of this amazing story." "If there is a lesson here," Vespa said, "it is that more hospitals need to consider implementing therapeutic hypothermia at their institutions. It can save lives." Learn more at www.uclahealth.org

UCLA Health Accountable Care Organization (ACO)
 
03:37
Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are groups of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers, who come together voluntarily to give coordinated high quality care to their Medicare patients. The goal of coordinated care is to ensure that patients, especially the chronically ill, get the right care at the right time, while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and preventing medical errors. When an ACO succeeds in both delivering high-quality care and spending health care dollars more wisely, it will create shared savings for the health system, health plans and patients. UCLA Health ACO has been recognized in the Becker's Hospital Review list of "100 Accountable Care Organizations to Know," which features some of the most advanced ACOs in the country.

Treatment for Children with OCD
 
03:50
Few children are without certain worries or fears, and its normal for children to develop rituals, such as at bedtime. But for the estimated 1-2 percent of children with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), these thoughts and behaviors become so intense they can be both greatly distressing and disruptive of the childs ability to function. UCLAs Semel Institute and the Stewart and Lynda Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA have opened one of the nations few hospital-based intensive outpatient treatment programs for these children. The UCLA Pediatric OCD Intensive Outpatient Program provides three hours of daily individual and group treatment for children ages 8-17, along with family therapy, parent education and support, and medication management. The program is offered four days a week for a minimum of two weeks, depending on the severity of the childs disorder. The severity and types of symptoms exhibited by children with OCD vary greatly, says R. Lindsey Bergman, Ph.D., the programs director. Though OCD is often portrayed as a fear of contamination or the need for things to be orderly, there is a wide range of symptoms. Dr. Bergman explains that most people with OCD have both obsessions and compulsions. Obsessions are anxiety-producing, difficult-to-control intrusive thoughts and fears, while compulsions are behaviors or rituals typically developed in an attempt to reduce the anxiety associated with the obsessive thoughts. A compulsion can also appear unrelated to an intrusive thought. For example, sometimes a behavior such as counting or touching is done repetitively until it feels right rather than because an intrusive thought triggered the behavior. In other cases, the ritual or behavior can be directly related or in response to the obsessive thought. For instance, fear of contamination can lead the child to want to avoid physical contact or public spaces. A childs concern about having the numbers and letters on schoolwork look just right can lead to constant erasing until there are holes in the paper and the work is never completed. Religious or moral obsessions, termed obsessive scrupulosity, may result in compulsive confessions or praying for forgiveness, even over the smallest incident or behavior that others would not judge as objectionable. Research has provided evidence for two effective OCD treatments, Dr. Bergman says. One is medication, most commonly in the form of prescribed selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors. The other — often used in combination with the medication — is a particular form of cognitive behavioral therapy called exposure and response prevention. The child is exposed to the feared thought while resisting engaging in the compulsive behavior, in a graduated fashion — practicing at first with something thats just a little bit scary, Dr. Bergman explains. A reward system is used to reinforce the childs attempts at engaging in exposure activities regardless of their success in resisting compulsions. Over time, and with follow-up at home, compulsive behaviors are extinguished as the exposures demonstrate that negative consequences do not result when the compulsive behavior or ritual is resisted. www.uclahealth.org

Charlotte Rae shares her experience with pancreatic cancer
 
03:45
Chalotte Rae, familiar to millions of TV viewers as the housemother on the '80s sitcom The Facts of Life, was diagnosed in 2009 with pancreatic cancer, an often-silent killer with few if any symptoms until it is too late. Some 40,000 new cases of pancreatic cancer are diagnosed each year, and by the time diagnosis is made, up to 80 percent of patients are no longer candidates for treatment. "I had no symptoms," Rae says. "I had absolutely no symptoms. None whatsoever." But Rae was, in a way, lucky. Because she had a family history of the disease - her mother, uncle and older sister all died from the disease - she underwent early screening, which detected the cancer at an early stage. "We're working hard to develop tests for earlier diagnosis," says Howard Reber, M.D., director of the UCLA Pancreatic Cancer Program. The goal is to create something similar to the PSA test now done to detect prostate cancer in its early stages, before it has had a chance to spread. "In patients where we know that there's an increased likelihood of the development of the disease, we can screen them, we can get CT scans, we can get endoscopic ultrasounds," Dr. Reber says. In Rae's case, the cancer was detected and found to be contained, but it was growing fast. Surgery was performed to remove the cancer, and now, following surgery and chemotherapy, Rae is cancer free.

Dystonia Treated with Surgically Implanted Pacemaker
 
05:25
Approximately 125,000 Americans suffer from dystonia. The condition is a result of the brain firing abnormally, sending impulses of electricity to muscles that causes them to contract constantly. The treatment Veronica's doctor, UCLA neurosurgeon Dr. Antonio DeSalles, recommended was to surgically implant a pacemaker device to stop the impulses and block the transmission of electricity to the muscles. The procedure involves first implanting the electrodes and threading the wires into the patient's brain. A second operation connects the electrodes to a compact generator. The pacemaker is then programmed to battle the brain. More at http://www.uclahealth.org/body.cfm?id=930

Phrenic Nerve Injury Treatment | UCLA Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

UCLA is only West Coast medical center to offer pioneering surgery for phrenic nerve damage. Rare condition prevents diaphragm from getting the message to breathe. David Powell could not catch his breath. The 35-year-old from San Diego got winded walking up the stairs, exercising or even just bending over to tie his shoes. His favorite pastime, hiking, became impossible. But doctors, unable to diagnose his condition, told Powell that he would just have to live with it. Frustrated, he turned to the Internet and discovered that his symptoms could be the result of phrenic nerve damage. The phrenic nerves — there is one on each side of the body — send messages from the brain to the diaphragm telling the body to breathe. Powell also learned that the damage could possibly berepaired through surgery. Learn more about this and other procedures at http://plasticsurgery.ucla.edu

A new study finds that severe childhood trauma and stresses early in parents' lives are linked to higher rates of behavioral health problems in their own children. Dr. Adam Schickedanz says the study is the first to show that “the long-term behavioral health harms of childhood adversity extend across generations from parent to child.” Read more https://ucla.in/2L5xjOn.

Dance Movement Therapy at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA
 
06:18
The UCLA Child Life/Child Development Program launched "Dréa's Dream," the first pediatric Dance Therapy Program in Los Angeles in November 2008, providing dance/movement therapy for children with cancer and special needs. Through generous support from the Andrea Rizzo Foundation, a Registered Dance Therapist (ADTR) engages medically fragile children in movement therapy, supporting physical development, anxiety reduction, and creative expression. Through dance/movement therapy, emotions are accessed, and then released through expressive movement and a positive transformation takes place within the patient, facilitating the overall well being of the child. Small group and bedside sessions are scheduled to meet the child's physical and emotional needs. The Andrea Rizzo Foundation has been funding Dance Movement Therapy Programs at hospitals across the United States, and clinical psychologist, Dr Lori Baudino, was integral in bringing the foundation to the west coast. This video shows the work that Dr Baudino has been doing at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA with children in the pediatric oncology division.

Targeted Prostate Biopsy using MR-Ultrasound Fusion
 
06:10
Full details of fusion biopsy technique: http://casit.ucla.edu/body.cfm?id=222 A new research study at UCLA aims to re-define prostate cancer significance through clinical validation of a tool which allows 3D visualization and tracking of the prostate. By fusing multi-parametric MRI (T2-weighted, diffusion-weighted imaging, dynamic contrast enhancement) with real-time ultrasound, suspicious areas seen on the MRI can be tracked and targeted during prostate biopsy. This research aims to improve currently available methods of cancer diagnosis.

Rhianna's Journey with Chiari Malformation | UCLA Pediatric Neurosurgery
 
02:56
Teenager Rhianna Wilson spent her senior year of high school in and out of four San Diego hospitals, seeking relief for her vision loss, leg pain and debilitating headaches. She was diagnosed with Ehler-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), a genetic disorder marked by overly stretchy connective tissue, but no one could explain what caused her worsening symptoms. Doctors encouraged Rhianna’s parents to consider a seeing-eye dog and enroll her in a school for the blind. Her mother’s research led her to UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital, where pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Aria Fallah referred Rhianna for a stand-up MRI. The scan revealed a large Chiari malformation, a rare condition in which the brain slips downward and compresses the spinal column. Dr. Fallah removed Rhianna’s top vertebra and the back bone of her skull, creating more space for her brain and relieving her symptoms. When Rhianna opened her eyes after surgery, she could see again. In less than three weeks, she was living like a typical teenager: driving, working, hiking and enjoying the active social life she’d missed during her senior year. Learn more: https://ucla.in/2qwXyGZ

Electromagnetic Therapy Offers Hope for Depression
 
04:06
Although several therapies exist for people with severe clinical depression, including medication, psychotherapy and electroconvulsive therapy, they don't all work for everyone. For many patients with severe depression — characterized by an all-encompassing low mood and loss of interest or pleasure in normally enjoyable activities — who have tried without success to relieve their symptoms with at least one round of medication, there now is a therapy that stimulates the brain, but does so without general anesthesia or lingering aftereffects. Called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), the procedure uses magnetic fields to change the activity in a specific area of the brain thought to influence mood and emotion to improve the symptoms of severe depression, explains Ian Cook, M.D., director of the UCLA Depression Research and Clinic Program. The procedure is conducted in an office setting; a patient undergoing TMS sits in a chair resembling a recliner, while a large electromagnet is precisely positioned over his or her head to emit targeted electromagnetic pulses. While the patient's head is gently secured in place, he or she is fully awake during the 45-minute sessions and is able to read, converse, watch videos or listen to music. The therapy is conducted five days a week over four to six weeks. "Some people like to take a nap. Others like to meditate. All they really experience is the sensation of a tapping on the scalp from the magnetic field, even though nothing is mechanically tapping there," Dr. Cook says. Patients wishing to undergo TMS at UCLA are reviewed by a committee, which discusses each case to ensure that the patient is an appropriate candidate. Results from clinical trials have been promising, Dr. Cook points out. After six weeks, about 54 percent of patients reported improvement in their mood, and 33 percent were in remission from their depression. Learn more at www.uclahealth.org

Varicose Vein Ablation | UCLA Vital Signs
 
03:35
Nearly one in every two adults 50 years or older develop varicose veins, which usually appear as swollen, twisted clumps of blue or purple blood vessels near the surface of the skin in the legs or pelvis. The condition is most common among women and older adults, but obesity, standing on the job, personal or family history of venous disease, and hormonal changes before and after pregnancy increase the risk for developing varicose veins. Peter Lawrence, M.D., director of UCLA's Gonda (Goldschmied) Vascular Center, notes that it is important for patients to be evaluated and treated by an expert in venous disease. "There are many new approaches to varicose veins and venous insufficiency. To prevent recurrence, a comprehensive approach is needed," he notes. "It's not just a cosmetic problem," says Cheryl Hoffman, M.D., medical director of UCLA's Imaging and Interventional Center in Manhattan Beach, who treats superficial varicose veins using minimally invasive techniques. "Varicose veins can be painful." The condition occurs when valves that facilitate blood flow between the heart and the legs begin to leak and cause blood to pool in the legs. Common symptoms include leg swelling, muscle cramps, soreness, tiredness and aching in the legs, itchiness around the vein, skin discoloration and ulcers. "Once those superficial veins stop working, they really aren't needed," she says. "In most cases, we can easily close off problem veins using a catheter to direct laser or radiofrequency energy to heat the inside the blood vessels." Ultrasound is used to extensively map the vein physiology and blood flow and to guide the procedure. Unlike more invasive approaches, this technique, called endovenous thermal ablation, causes less pain, bleeding and bruising and enables patients to return to normal activities faster.
