              ASPIRIN KEY TO PREVENT SECOND STROKE

A Swiss study finds stroke survivors who stopped taking 
their prescribed daily aspirin tripled their risk of hav-
ing another stroke within a month. "This is the first 
controlled retrospective study to investigate the poten-
tial risk of suffering ischemic stroke shortly after 
discontinuing aspirin," said study co-author Dr. Patrik 
Michel, director of the acute stroke unit at Lausanne 
University Hospital in Lausanne, Switzerland. This study 
reinforces the importance of compliance with aspirin 
therapy in patients with symptomatic arteriosclerosis, 
including previous stroke, Michel told the American Stroke 
Association's International Stroke Conference in New 
Orleans.

     STEROID AS EFFECTIVE AS SURGERY FOR CARPAL TUNNEL

Carpal tunnel syndrome or CTS affects 3 percent of the U.S. 
population but there is no universally accepted therapy. 
Madrid researchers suggest steroid injection is just as 
effective as surgery for the long-term symptomatic relief 
of carpal tunnel syndrome -- for a year, at least -- and 
actually more effective over the short term. "This is the 
first randomized controlled clinical trial comparing the 
two most common therapies for CTS," writes study author Dr. 
Domingo Ly-Pen in the journal Arthritis & Rheumatism. "Our 
findings suggest that both local steroid injections and 
surgical decompression are highly effective in alleviating 
the symptoms of primary CTS at 12 months of follow-up. 
Nevertheless, local injection seems superior to surgery in 
the short term."

               CELL PHONES AFFECT YOUNG DRIVERS

A University of Utah study finds when young motorists talk 
on cell phones, they drive like elderly people -- with 
slower reaction times. "If you put a 20-year-old driver 
behind the wheel with a cell phone, their reaction times 
are the same as a 70-year-old driver who is not using a 
cell phone," says study author David Strayer. "It's like 
instantly aging a large number of drivers." The study, pub-
lished in the journal Human Factors, finds drivers young 
or old using hands-free phones were 18 percent slower in 
hitting their brakes than drivers who didn't use cell 
phones. They also had a 12 percent greater following dis-
tance and took 17 percent longer to regain the speed they 
lost when they braked.
