Complications rise in states with stronger malpractice laws

Connecticut medical patients may be interested in a recent study that investigated the effectiveness of medical malpractice laws. In theory, making it easier to hold doctors accountable for malpractice should result in better care. However, the study found that the threat of litigation does not necessarily lower the rate of surgical complications.

Cancer deaths down by a quarter since 1991

The number of Connecticut residents succumbing to cancer has been decreasing steadily in recent years, and total cancer deaths in the United States have fallen by about a quarter since 1991. A report released on Jan. 5 by the American Cancer Society puts these improvements down to improved screening, more effective treatments and a large drop in the number of Americans who smoke.

Endometriosis sufferers may go undiagnosed

Connecticut women who have endometriosis may suffer without receiving proper aid thanks to the diagnostic difficulties associated with this poorly understood disease. Although some scientists believe it's a genetic disorder that results in abnormal hormone balances and menstrual cycle irregularities, others think it might have to do with immune system malfunctions or environmental exposure. In addition to not understanding its cause, doctors are stymied by the fact that sufferers may experience a diverse range of complex symptoms that can also occur with other ailments.
