    Fetal intervention for critical aortic stenosis (AS)

    (soft music) – I’m Dr. Carly Fifer. I’m a pediatric cardiologist at the University of Michigan. I specialize in fetal cardiology. Today, I’m gonna talk with you about some of the indications for fetal intervention in babies with heart problems. All babies with hypoplastic left heart syndrome are born with the left side of the heart too small. There’s a very small subset of these babies that actually had a normal-sized left heart earlier in pregnancy. These are the babies that have critical aortic stenosis when we see them in the mid-term pregnancy. In babies with critical aortic stenosis, they have a normal left side of the heart, but the…

    Overview of fetal cardiac interventions

    (bright music) – We perform two different types of fetal cardiac interventions. The first is for fetuses who have a narrowed aortic valve that look like they may develop hypoplastic left heart syndrome, which is a heart problem where the left-side of the heart is underdeveloped and the right-side of the heart has to do the work of two ventricles. That procedure, we open the aortic valve in the fetus to try to keep the left-side of the heart pumping for the body and the left-side of the heart growing normally. The second fetal cardiac intervention is performed when a fetus has hypoplastic left heart syndrome but does not have…

    Fetal intervention for HLHS with a restrictive atrial septal defect (ASD)

    (soft music) – So with babies that have hypoplastic left heart syndrome, all the blood that’s returning from the lungs comes back to the left side of the heart, but it can’t get through the left side that’s too small. It’s very important that babies have a large connection between the two upper chambers of the heart. So in this diagram, what I’m talking about is the hole here between the upper two chambers that all babies normally have and is very important that babies with hypoplastic left heart syndrome have. In a very small percentage of babies with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, this hole is either too small or…

    An African-American Woman Who Shielded a Man in a Confederate Flag Shirt | Where Are They Now | OWN

    In 1996, the KKK was holding a meeting near the University of Michigan. Hundreds came out to protest, and that’s when 18-year-old student Keshia Thomas made headlines. She used her own body as a human shield to protect a man wearing a Confederate flag t-shirt as he was being physically attacked by protesters. In 1998, I sat down with Keshia to talk about what that was like. Keshia says that she risked her own life because it was the right thing to do. Yeah. It’s the right thing to do. Weren’t you afraid that they were going to then turn on you? I know you believe in angels, but it…

    Legal “Expert” Gets Supremacy Clause Wrong in Mainstream News Report

    Virtually any mainstream article that you read about state sovereignty or nullification is going to include a quote from a legal scholar. Now, nine times out of 10 this lawyer or law professor is going to cite the supremacy clause. It’s like federal supremacists think the supremacy clause is some kind of get out of jail free card. They slap it down and instantly any state action is invalidated. The Washington Examiner recently ran a fantastic article it was headlined “On the fifth anniversary of Snowden leak, one state effectively bans the NSA.” The article featured law recently passed in Michigan that bans all state support and cooperation with warrantless…
