Urgent Stroke Treatment at Barnes-Jewish Hospital
 
02:05
Strokes must be treated immediately for the best patient outcomes. For more about stroke, visit http://www.barnesjewish.org/neurosciences/stroke-treatment-rehabilitation We often say in the stroke world that time is brain. The longer that a person's brain goes without blood and oxygen, the more likely that part of the brain is to die. Before a patient even arrives at Barnes-Jewish Hospital with signs of a stroke from a blood clot, the specialized stroke team has been activated and Washington University physicians are ready. There is a small window in which clot busting medication can be given and every second counts. At Barnes-Jewish Hospital, there are excellent "door to needle" times, offering clot busting drugs as soon as humanly possible. "As soon as we got to the emergency department, the stroke team descended upon him and there was no hesitation," says Carolyn Hanna of her experience at Barnes Jewish Hospital. "We were so grateful that we were in a hospital that knew immediately what to do." Washington University Physicians are researching ways to stop relying solely on the clock. Doctors are using MR-OMI technology to try to identify which patients have brain tissue that can be saved with clot busting drugs. This has the potential to truly change the way stroke is treated. The hope is that all stroke patients are able to return to their daily lives.

05:59
Former patient, Chris Simons, demonstrates the required exercises needed after your knee replacement surgery. He credits his recovery to not only the care he received from his Washington University orthopedic physician, but to the vigorous rehab schedule that he followed. For more information about joint preservation, resurfacing, and replacement at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, visit: http://www.barnesjewish.org/orthopedics/joint-repair-replacement Ankle Pumps • This exercise can be performed in sitting or while lying down. Knees may be bent or straightened. If you keep your knees straight, you will feel a better stretch in your calf muscle on the back of your leg. • Bend and straighten your ankles slowly. • Move through the full range of motion from pointing toes like a ballerina to pulling toes up toward body, feeling the stretch in the back of your calves. • Be sure to move at the ankle joint, not moving just your toes. Quad Sets (Knee Presses) • Lie on your back in bed with both legs fully extended straight and supported in bed. • Tighten the muscles on top of your leg while pushing your knee down into the bed. This will strengthen your thigh muscle. • You will note the knee cap move upwards with this movement. • If you put a towel under your heel, this will enhance the stretch on the back of your knee to assist with improving your range of motion. • Hold for 5 seconds. Make sure you are continuing to breathe in and out while you are holding this position for 5 seconds. Then relax your thigh muscle. • You may slightly bend your knee back into a comfortable position during your brief rest break. Straight Leg Raises (Leg Lifts) • Lie on your back, with your surgical leg straight, the other leg bent. • Slightly roll your surgical leg outward. • Tighten your thigh muscle, and lift your surgical leg off the bed so it’s as high as your other leg. • Keep your knee straight and rolled out while lifting and lowering it. • Slowly lower your leg to the bed. Heel Slides • Lie on your back in bed with legs extended. • Keep your heel in contact with the bed as you slowly slide your heel up toward your buttock, while bending your knee as far as you can. Your knee should stay up midline and point toward the ceiling. • Using a slick surface, such as a cookie sheet or a thick trash bag beneath your heel helps to decrease the friction between you and the bed, making the movement easier. Short Arc Quads (Mini Kicks) • Lie on your back in bed. • Place a firm roll approximately 8-10 inches in diameter, such as a pillow, large coffee can or a unopened 2 liter bottle of soda with a towel wrapped around it, under your knee so that there is a slight bend in the knee. • Make sure your leg is relaxed on the roll. • Slowly lift your foot from the bed and straighten your bent knee. • Only straighten your knee. Do not lift your entire leg off of the supporting surface. • Hold for 5 seconds, then slowly lower the foot back down to the surface and relax. • Like with all of the exercises, please be sure you are not holding your breath. • Your opposite leg may be relaxed in a comfortable position of your choosing. Knee Range of Motion-sitting position • Sit in a chair so that your feet barely touch the floor. If you’re tall, you may need to first put 1 or 2 pillows on the seat of the chair. • Use the knee that you had surgery on. • Bend the knee as far as you can. • Then straighten the knee while lifting your foot off the floor. • Be sure to try and get your knee all the way straight. Remember to perform 10 repetitions of each exercise two times a day.

Hemorrhagic Stroke Treatment at Barnes-Jewish Hospital
 
02:10
A hemorrhagic stroke, or what is also called a ruptured brain aneurysm, occurs when the walls of blood vessels are weakened, resulting in a blood-filled bulge. If left untreated, the aneurysm may rupture, causing a hemorrhagic stroke. Immediate and specialized treatment is a key element to minimize the damage, and survival depends on the expertise and speed with which a patient is treated. Debbie was rushed to Barnes-Jewish Hospital after experiencing a hemorrhagic stroke.

National Leaders in Brain Tumor Treatment, Interview with Brad and Neurosurgeon Eric Leuthardt, MD
 
06:00
Brad Eastman, from Edwardsville, Ill., is a husband, a father, a supply chain professional—and an experienced endurance athlete In fact, he has participated in marathons and Ironman and Olympic distance triathlons. In January 2013, he competed in the Walt Disney World Marathon, where he finished in the top 1 percent of the 10,095 men who crossed the finish line. Accomplishments like this paint a vivid picture of Eastman, a man familiar with hard work and accustomed to overcoming difficulties. Two months after the Disney marathon, Brad's endurance and positive attitude ran up against an unexpected challenge. He puts it this way: "I found myself signed up for a race I'd never trained for." In the months leading up to the Disney marathon, Brad was experiencing some strange sensations, including a recurring and intense sense of déjà vu—that feeling that one has experienced the exact same moment sometime in the past—coupled with an odd taste in his mouth that persisted even when he hadn't eaten. When these sensations didn't disappear as he hoped they would, Eastman made an appointment with a neurologist, who referred him to a radiologist at Barnes-Jewish Hospital for a series of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) tests. Epilepsy was a possibility. The day after the MRI, Brad took a call from the radiologist, who asked him to visit his office immediately to discuss the results. Eastman had a brain tumor. The radiologist had already secured an appointment with Eric Leuthardt, MD, a Washington University neurosurgeon at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Brad did a little background work, discovering that Leuthardt was renowned in his field and that, like himself, Leuthardt was married and had a young daughter. Brad gained confidence as he thought about this surgeon, who was skilled and experience, and who might understand just what was at stake. Leuthardt offered his new patient several options: monitor the tumor with a wait-and-see approach; undergo a procedure to biopsy the tumor; or have the tumor resected, or removed. And Leuthardt suggested Eastman get a second opinion. "Whatever my decision was going to be," Brad says, "Dr. Leuthardt told me I needed to 'own' it—no second thoughts." Eastman chose surgery and resection. The tumor that interrupted Eastman's life was removed in April 2013, and he returned to work in July. "I sometimes have to pinch myself," Brad says. "I had a fist-sized tumor in my head, and now I'm doing everything I did before." There is no evidence that the tumor has returned. Leuthardt says, "We were able to complete a 95 percent removal; Brad's prognosis is excellent." To put it more simply, Brad is here; still a husband, still a father. And he's running again, readying himself for the next race.

Advances in Brain Tumor Treatment at Barnes-Jewish Hospital
 
02:02
Advances in brain tumor treatment are changing the way and types of brain tumors treated at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. For more information about brain tumor treatment, visit http://www.barnesjewish.org/neurosciences/brain-spine-tumor-treatment Tamara Ramage was only 25 when she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. She turned to Barnes-Jewish Hospital for its unparalleled treatment options. "We have a team and set of technical capabilities that allow us to treat virtually any type of brain tumor," states Dr. Ralph Dacey. "We can devise a very specific plan tailored to the individual patient's tumor." The high strength intraoperative MRI (IMRI) allows for precision. It allows for surgeons to remove the tumor without going too far as to not impact other functions of the brain. Washington University Physicians at Barnes-Jewish Hospital are developing novel brain mapping which can decode brain networks. This game changing tool gives vital information to maximize tumor removal by minimizing impact on neurological functions. Barnes-Jewish Hospital was the third hospital in the country to use a ground breaking device that treats tumors deep within the brain. This device allows surgeons to burn the tumor from the inside out and is considered minimally invasive. There has been a fundamental change in how we can effectively treat brain tumors.

Thank You to EMS Professionals for a Job Well Done

At the Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University Trauma Center, we are proud to partner with EMS in the area to deliver quality care and save lives. For more information about the trauma center at Barnes-Jewish, visit: http://www.barnesjewish.org/trauma. Each year, we host an EMS Appreciation Day, along with St. Louis Children's Hospital. We wish we could honor EMS for all they that do year round, every day. This year, we started off the day at 5 in the morning making pancakes in the Barnes-Jewish Hospital ambulance bay. We had lunch available from 11 -- 2 and then we rounded off the evening for night shift with a nacho bar from 8 -- 11. All attendees received a trunk organizer. Learn more about our critical partnership with EMS: Heather Heil , Injury Prevention Outreach Coordinator, Barnes-Jewish Hospital Trauma Services: Whenever patients come here they're at their worst, and we want Time Critical Diagnosis available for every person. So therefore we work with our EMS providers and this is a great chance for us to say thank you and to work with them to make sure the state of Missouri does well. Douglas Schuerer, MD, Washington University trauma surgeon & director of trauma at Barnes-Jewish Hospital: We really need people to call 911, and once they do that, EMS can respond and start interventions there, whether it's IVs or giving a patient a breathing tube or performing CPR, they're trained to do all that, and they can really make sure the patient gets to our hospital alive so we can continue the work they started to keep that patient alive. David K. Tan, MD, EMS section chief at Washington University & Barnes-Jewish Hospital: There are certainly advantages to having the appropriate care in the field. And when they bring them to us here at Barnes-Jewish Hospital-- a level I trauma center, we simply are able to provide the best possible care for that time critical diagnosis that the patient has. Of course, it all starts with the EMT and the paramedic in the field recognizing that time critical diagnosis and emergency, and bringing them to us in a timely fashion. Thank you EMS for your continued partnership!

Liver Transplant Due to Wilson's Disease
 
04:23
Liver transplant patient Amanda Watermeir describes her experience at the Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Hospital Transplant Center in St. Louis. More information about liver transplants can be found here: http://www.barnesjewish.org/liver-transplant Amanda Watermeier was diagnosed with Wilson's Disease, a genetic recessive disorder after experiencing flu-like symptoms. Wilson's Disease can cause complications such as copper build up in the liver. As the liver tries to clean it out, it can cause sclerosis of the liver and liver failure. In Amanda's case, this resulted in the need for an emergency liver transplant. Fortunately after being on the waiting list for just over 24 hours, a liver was found for Amanda. Her transplant surgery was performed by Dr. Surenda Shenoy. She now attends nursing school and would like to work at Barnes-Jewish Hospital's Transplant Center.

Double Lung Transplant Recipient Determined to Be There for His Family
 
03:35
When 50-year-old Randy Cooke was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, the same incurable lung disease that took his mother's life, he knew he needed to come to the Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Transplant Center. For more information on the lung transplant program, visit http://www.barnesjewish.org/lung-transplant. His mother went to Barnes-Jewish and was evaluated for a lung transplant. She chose to not do it. Cooke now wishes that he would've encouraged her more. Cooke's only chance for survival was a double lung transplant and he vowed not to let the disease devastate his family once again. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a very aggressive lung disease that results in lung failure. It's a serious lung disease and often fatal for many patients. Cooke told his doctor at home that he wanted to go to Barnes-Jewish Hospital and within a month, his evaluation process was underway. When he came to Barnes-Jewish Hospital, he knew there was going to be some testing, he had no idea what he was getting into—they tested everything. It was about a week of tests, and then it was time to wait. That wait lasted two-and-a-half years before Cooke received his lungs. Physicians told Cooke to expect to be in the hospital for about a month. But he went home less than two weeks after getting out of the intensive care unit (ICU). Cooke says there was one nurse he'll never forget and who he credits with helping him turn the corner. He was breathing really fast, really hard, and trying to catch his breath. A nurse looked at him and said, 'Randy, all you have to do is slow down.' He took a breath and realized he could breathe on his own. To this day, he'll remember that. Cooke is now back to doing the things he loves like hunting and spending quality time with his family.

Brain-Computer Interface  - Highlights from Brain Works 2013
 
05:02
Excerpt from Brain Works 2013, a free community event from Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Register for our next brain innovation event at: http://bjhne.ws/xf In this portion of the Brain Works presentation, neurosurgeons Dr. Eric Leuthardt and Dr. Albert Kim discuss brain-computer interfaces and the future of medicine. To fix the brain after it has been injured, not only do we need to know what causes the problem. We need to understand the brain well enough to essentially create replacement parts once it has been broken. That is called a brain-computer interface. If somebody has a spinal cord injury or a stroke, a brain-computer interface may someday allow them to recover function. The brain-computer interface has two parts: decoding the brain's signal and then transmitting that signal to a machine that can move or do a number of things. In Dr. Leuthardt's lab, one patient with electrodes placed on the surface of his brain to treat epilepsy learned to play video games using imagined movements. In fact, he became so good at Space Invaders that he is now in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the highest score in a video game, using his brain to control the video game. But you don't need to open up the skull and place electrodes on the brain to see the brain-computer interface at work. With devices like the NeuroSky MindWave headset, you can use theta waves (brainwaves associated with attention) to play a number of games. Dr. Leuthardt is co-creator of one of these games, a mobile application called BrainCopter, which allows players to fly a virtual helicopter using their mind. At Barnes-Jewish Hospital, a clinical trial for stroke rehabilitation using brain-computer interface is underway to help patients with certain deficits (like a paralyzed hand) control orthotics using a headset, allowing them to opens and close their hand again. For one of Dr. Leuthardt's spinal cord injury patients, a brain-computer interface helped him control a robotic arm and touch his wife for the first time in nearly three years after sustaining his injury.

Advances in Brain Tumor Treatment
 
05:05
Advances in brain tumor diagnosis and treatment are discussed by Dr. Michael Chicoine. For more information about brain tumor treatment, visit http://www.barnesjewish.org/neurosciences/brain-spine-tumor-treatment No one wants to hear that they have a brain tumor. Advances in medicine and technology have led to a better outlook for patients with this diagnosis. It is estimated that 15 out of every 100 thousand people will develop a brain tumor at some point with about half of those being malignant. Unfortunately, there are not many preventive measures that can be taken for brain tumors; however, overall good health can reduce the risk of the cancer spreading. When possible, brain tumors are removed; however, only parts that do not jeopardize your brain's function can be removed. Often, radiation is used as a treatment to slow the growth and shrink tumors. Chemotherapy is another very common form of treatment. There is much promising research and new technology in the works. As an example, advanced MRI techniques are assisting with the evaluation and treatment of brain tumors. Surgical advancements such as Intraoperative MRI (IMRI) are allowing surgeons to ensure that they have removed tumors successfully, without damaging brain function. With advancing technology and techniques, brain tumor treatment success rates are improving.

Lukas Zebala, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon
 
02:18
Dr. Zebala is a Washington University orthopedic surgeon at Barnes-Jewish Hospital who specializes in the evaluation and treatment of degenerative spine conditions of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. He treats adult spine conditions, including deformity, scoliosis, kyphosis, trauma, tumors and infections, as well as patients with previous failed spine surgery requiring revision. His practice focuses on treatment of the spine through a combination of non-operative and operative methods including minimally invasive spine surgery, outpatient spine surgery and complex spine reconstructions. View Dr. Zebala's Profile: http://www.barnesjewish.org/physicians/details.aspx?physician=11111460 For more information about orthopedics at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, please click here: http://www.barnesjewish.org/orthopedics/ Dr. Zebala's specialty is spinal surgery. He treats patients with spine fractures that come through the Barnes-Jewish Hospital emergency room, patients with common spinal degenerative conditions such as spinal stenosis, and patients with more complex problems such as scoliosis. He started volunteering at a local hospital in high school and that solidified his pursuit of medicine. His goals are to treat each patient in the most efficient and effective way, allowing him to use less disruptive techniques and help patients recover faster and get out of the hospital sooner and get back to their normal lives. Practicing at an academic institution such as Washington University allows him to adapt to new less invasive techniques and focus on the emphasis of research and clinical patient care to achieve the goal of really trying to advanced his field that he may not get other non-academic institutions. His philosophy on patient care is very simple: he treats patients how he would want to be treated or how he wants his family treated. When he consults he tries to use his personal experience to help make life-and-death critical decisions for patients' health or the health of their families. He pursues that personal connection with patients that is very rewarding. For more information about orthopedics at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, please click here: http://www.barnesjewish.org/orthopedics/

Lung Transplants for Cystic Fibrosis Patients
 
05:19
Lung transplant patients Carrie and Gary Gobble discuss their transplant surgery at Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Hospital Transplant Center. Both lung transplantations were a result of cystic fibrosis. More information about lung transplants: http://www.barnesjewish.org/lung-transplant When Carrie was in high school, she played sports including volleyball and track. Staying active helped to keep her lungs clean. In her last two years of high school, she began suffering from frequent respiratory infections. Carrie was placed on the lung transplant list in March of 2004. Due to her severity and ongoing infections, she received her transplant in only 9 months. Gary was listed for a lung transplant in May of 2000. He waited for 2 years before he was able to receive the transplant. He was at Barnes-Jewish Hospital for 10 days. Gary went on to participate in the Transplant Mentor Program for individuals in a similar circumstance. As a transplant mentor, Gary was able to share his story and experiences with other transplant patients. He could help educate others going through the process on what it means to be transplanted. One major concern for transplant patients is the fear of the unknown. Having the ability to meet someone who is healthy and has been through a transplant can be comforting to patients in the process. Carrie and Gary were both cystic fibrosis and lung transplant patients at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. In July of 2005, Gary proposed to Carrie. They both are active and agree that their lung transplants have changed their lives. To read more about lung transplants, visit: http://www.barnesjewish.org/lung-transplant.
