Another study, authored by Kim Eagle, interim
chief of the division of cardiology, found that acute
aortic dissection - a rare heart disease which occurs
with the separation of aortic walls - is responsible
for the deaths of a high percentage of patients
despite recent medical advances.
Researchers found the highest mortality
occurred soon after symptoms were present. This
finding shows there is an urgent need to diagnosis
the disease quickly and then provide care in a
Another study highlighted in the issue tracks the
evolution of a life support system known as extracor-
poreal membrane oxygenation.
Researchers, led by surgery Prof. Robert Bartlett,
studied the first 1,000 patients treated with ECMO
since 1980 when the University founded its Extra-
cororeal Life Support Program.
ECMO in effect works as a lung, oxygenating
the blood of the patient so that the patient's
organs can recover. It can be used on either ;hil-

science news at JAMA. "Michigan

researchers around the country ...
we turn down nine of 10 research
ideas to be published."
Omenn said not only does the
attention confirm the University's
high standards and status within the
country; it could also produce even
more medical students and respect.
"It may bring us students who are
deciding between Michigan and
other places. The issue may help
with philanthropy in that it gives to

person in the whole health system ...
and the students of the University
feel good about themselves," Omenn
