ELATIVES OF YOUNG PEOPLE who have died suddenly from a heart-related problem have an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease themselves,

according to new research. Researchers in Denmark identified 470

victims of sudden cardiac death and followed their relatives for up to 11 years. They found that relatives under 35 years of age were three times more likely to develop cardiovascular disease than the general population. Doireann Maddock, Senior Cardiac Nurse at

the British Heart Foundation (BHF), said: 'Sudden cardiac death in the young is often linked to an inherited heart problem, so the findings of this Danish study come as no surprise. 'Screening the family members of sudden

cardiac death victims is crucial, as it gives the best chance of identifying problems and offering treatment at an early stage. That's why we've been working with the Department of Health for many years to encourage coroners and their offices to help families to access essential genetic services.

New app and site for scar patients

enaltus has announced the launch of a new website, which includes a free mobile app to help patients monitor their scars appearance as they heal. This resource is specifically designed for

the cosmetic and reconstructive patient and has

features that measure

hyperpigmentation, redness and elevation of the scar; measure keloid scar treatment; monitor the patients’ scars scores over time; visualise themselves without their scar; log their product use so you can measure patient compliance As Dr. Julius Few, renowned plastic

surgeon from Chicago, stated 'Scars continue to be a major issue in plastic surgery, and Biocorneum+ offers a novel tool that is registered with the FDA with clinical data available for our patients. The new app can really help us track scar progress and gives us another tool to educate our patients with added visual assistance.' For further information visit: www.


early in October to support the rehabilitation of children suffering from burn injuries and birth-related facial defects. During the event, Dr Anderson

trained Russian physicians at Pediatric Hospital No. 9 to treat patients. In addition, at the 3rd Practical-Scientific Conference of Premium Aesthetics in Moscow, held by Ekomir, Dr Anderson shared his latest developments in photo- medicine and his experience with Lumenis’ lasers with 150 Russian dermatologists and surgeons.

Conference were offered to the organisation supporting children with burn injuries. Until today, laser technology was

prohibited for the treatment of children in Russia, despite its proven clinical evidence and invaluable help for adults and children worldwide. The Burn Unit of the Moscow Pediatric Hospital courageously extended its practice by successfully treating children suffering from conspicuous, complex and deep skin lesions,

such as surgical scars, using CO2 fractional lasers.

This charity mission in Moscow is

one of the ongoing worldwide collaborations between Lumenis and Dr Rox Anderson. Previous joint missions of Dr. Anderson and Lumenis included missions to China and Vietnam, where he and his colleagues have already treated over 300 patients and trained local physicians. Lumenis makes the treatments and physicians training possible by donating its UltraPulse SCAAR FX laser systems. | November/December 2012 ❚ 9
