Top 10 for 2021: #5: Universal Hepatitis C Treatment

Classified as a silent epidemic by the CDC, more than 3.2 million Americans are infected with Hepatitis C, and as many as 75% are unaware they carry the virus. Spreading through contact with blood from an infected person, Hepatitis C is a virus that causes liver inflammation that can result in liver failure or cancer. Currently, there are no vaccines to prevent Hepatitis C infection.

Top 10 for 2021: #6 | Bubble CPAP for Increased Lung Function in Premature Babies

Compared with mechanical ventilation and tracheal intubation, b-CPAP minimizes physical trauma and stimulates lung growth when administered over a prolonged period. Given its chronic lung disease reducing capabilities, b-CPAP allows the growth of strong children with lungs full of life.

Top 10 for 2021: #7 | Increased Access to Telemedicine through Novel Practice & Policy Changes

It is a new spin on the old fashioned house call, using technology. Although easy and effective, movement to virtual visits has been slow. COVID-19 restrictions change that pace, forcing clinicians to conduct many of their appointments online. The need was immediate, but risks like data breaches and limits on Medicare coverage slowed expanding access.

Top 10 for 2021: #8 | Vacuum-Induced Uterine Tamponade Device for Postpartum Hemorrhage

Top 10 for 2021: #8 | Vacuum-Induced Uterine Tamponade Device for Postpartum Hemorrhage

The joy of becoming a mother can take an unexpected turn with the unpredictable childbirth complication. Postpartum hemorrhage or PPH, occurs when the uterus fails to contract to stop the bleeding vessels where the placenta was attached inside the body. This most common cause of PPH is called uterine atony, and leads to continued bleeding.

Known as vacuum-induced uterine tamponade, this procedure works more like a woman's body. A device is inserted into the uterus where gentle suction causes it to contract and shrink inside, effectively stopping the bleeding. While the new method is still finding its place in the OB workflow, clinical trials found it controlled bleeding within two minutes in all women tested. As a low tech solution, potentially translatable to developing countries with low resource availability, vacuum-induced uterine tamponade devices are showing promise to new mothers around the world.

Top 10 for 2021: #9 | PARP Inhibitors for Prostate Cancer

With a one-in-nine chance of diagnosis, the disease is an ever-present worry for men. Researchers are constantly looking for new options for prostate cancer resistant to therapies, including metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer, or MCRPC, which is considered incurable.

Known for their success in women's cancers, poly ADP-ribose polymerase, or PARP inhibitors, have recently shown success as a targeted cancer therapy in men with similar BRCA gene mutations. While chemotherapy damages DNA as a way to hurt and kill rapidly dividing cancer cells, BRCA genes have a built-in backup plan to repair cancer DNA. PARP proteins fix this damage, allowing the cancer to grow. The inhibitor of PARP prevents repair, effectively blocking cell growth.
