In the letter mailed to constituents

Goode said the U.S. needs to stop

inches of fresh snow.

Now there's snow and freezing rain from

Nebraska to the Texas panhandle.

shoveling snow a monumental task

The older stents are just bare
metal. The problem with them is they
can cause scar tissue and lead to
renarrowing of the arteries. That's why
many doctors switched to drug-coated
stents.

While both options put a patient
at risk for blood clots. With drug
coated stents the risk appears to last
longer.

METAL STENTS AFTER 6 MONTHS TO A YEAR
TO STORY WAS OVER AND YOU DON'T SEE
THEM COMING WITH CLOTS THAT LATE IN
THEIR COURSE

(END SOT)



Doctors did notice the risk for
clots increased when patients stopped
taking blood thinning medications
early. If they had multiple stents in
small blood vessels, uncontrolled

diabetes, used tobacco, or had high
cholesterol. But there are still many
unanswered questions.

The FDA is now recommending
doctors keep patients on blood thinners
longer at least a year to keep clots
from forming..

Apparently the Clause-wanna be had
a fight with his girlfriend and headed
to a friends house, noone was home so
he decided to try and get in through
the chimney.

Needless to say, he got stuck 8
feet down...neighbors heard him
screaming for help and called police.


Covered in ash, the man was pulled
out and taken to the hospital as a
precautionary measure.
