Dodging the Roadkill: Riding the Rockies

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColorado Springs, CO – I just returned from my first trip to Colorado.  What an experience!  I’ve never seen such beautiful country!

One of the many day trips I took was through the Rockies.  It took me a couple of miles before it REALLY hit me that I was actually in THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS!  Almost a surreal experience.

The first thing I noticed was the smell.  The cool crisp mountain air filled with the fresh smell of pine trees.  It’s a beautiful entrance to one of the world’s most famous landmarks.

American Heart Association says Stent coated with an Erectile Dysfunction Drug may help prevent Blood Clots and Artery Narrowing

 

American Heart Association Meeting Report

American Heart AssociationPortland OR – A stent coated with an erectile dysfunction drug may someday help prevent arteries from becoming narrow or blocked again, according to preliminary research presented at the American Heart Association’s Basic Cardiovascular Sciences 2017 Scientific Sessions.

Stents help keep coronary arteries open and reduce the chance of a heart attack. With traditionally used bare metal stents, excessive tissue growth within the treated portion of the artery can cause restenosis — the artery to become narrow or blocked again.

If confirmed in human trials, the drug might someday be included in the coating of stents or given orally just after a stent is inserted to open a narrowed artery. (American Heart Association)
