When her chest pains started, Susan Sperling wasn’t too worried. After all, the discomfort she was feeling never seemed to last for very long. But when the pains persisted, she finally decided to go see a doctor, who discovered the cause: an almost complete blockage of Susan’s main coronary artery.

Her doctor referred her to The Mount Sinai Hospital, where specialists quickly realized that Susan would need a stent to keep her artery open. But first they had to clear out plaque deposits that had calcified on the artery’s walls. They decided to use the Diamondback 360® Coronary Orbital Atherectomy System, a new technique recently approved by the FDA that uses a rotating diamond-coated crown to sand away arterial plaque.

The procedure worked perfectly. It was a happy outcome for Susan, who was back on her feet the following day. And it was yet another success story for #MSHeart ‎’s #Cardiac‬  Catheterization Laboratory, which recently received the highest two-star safety rating by the New York Department of Health for percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) overall and in non-emergency cases.

In fact, 2015 marks the 17th consecutive year that the Mount Sinai Catheterization Laboratory or its physicians have been awarded a prestigious two-star designation for safety rates that significantly exceed the statewide average.

In other words, it’s advanced care from a team of experts with a proven record of success. That’s something more valuable than any diamond.

There was a time when Lee Eric Newton, the single father of a teenage daughter, thought he only had months to live. Diagnosed with ‪Bladder Cancer‬ in 2010, he'd undergone chemotherapy only to have the ‪‎cancer‬ spread to his brain. Then he found a ‪‎Clinical Trial‬ at Mount Sinai. Since enrolling, his tumors have decreased in size. According to Matthew Galsky, MD, Director of Genitourinary Medical ‪‎Oncology‬ at The Tisch Cancer Institute, the drug tears down the protective layers around the tumors. It's the first new treatment for metastatic bladder cancer in 30 years! Learn more at http://mshs.co/WV3Aj
A new drug is giving hope to bladder cancer patients. It uses their own immune systems to attack tumors.
