Spine surgeons in the U.S. perform more than 400,000 spinal fusions each year as a way to ease back pain and prevent vertebrae in the spine from wiggling around and doing more damage.

Patients with sepsis often require surgery or imaging procedures under general anesthesia, yet there is no standard regimen for anesthetizing septic patients. Of volatile (inhaled) anesthetics, sevoflurane and isoflurane are the most commonly used drugs, despite their undetermined mechanisms of action.

Surgeons wielding their life-saving scalpels, laparoscopic tools, or other implements to repair or remove what ails their patients understand all too well that pain is an unavoidable part of the healing process. Yet the current opioid crisis has made the standard prescribing practices for these highly effective analgesics fraught with risk. New research could help clinicians mitigate that risk by identifying which patients are more likely to continue to use opioids after their immediate recovery period.

It found that regularly taking medications along with lifestyle changes was just as effective at preventing heart attacks as the vasive procedures. Cardiologist Dr. Tara Narula joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss the findings.
