Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 -TH E LETHBRIDGE HWAIP Thursday, July 5, 1973 LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Aortic aneurysm can be fixed Your horoscope By JEANE DIXON Dear Dr. Lamb My doctor tells me I have an aneurysm of the right carotid artery. Since I must noticed this swelling in my neck I asked if it would disappear. He replied that it bad probably been eight months in developing before it was no- ticeable. He tells me there is nothing that he knows of medi- cally to correct it, except to replace it if it gets larger. Could it rupture and cause me wants at it again in five or six months, or if I start having any trouble. He said he didn't have many cases of this a year as usually the opposite problem occurred, that the artery in the neck be- came blocked with fatty mater- to bleed to death? He me to have him look ial. Because of my great con- cern, would you please tell me if there is any cure for this condition, such as strengthen- ing of the walls of the to make it stay its normal size. Dear Reader Yes, you have a fairly uncommon condition. For the benefit of otter read- ers, a carotid artery is. one of the main arteries in the neck along the side of the windpipe. An aneurysm means that a sac- like dilation has extended off the-artery. This kind of change occurs in an artery when it loses its normal elasticity and balloons out somewhat like a rubber balloon that's been over- stretched, or the ballooned out area that can develop on an in- nertube. The usual danger from an aneurysm is that it might en- large too much and actually rup- ture. Hris is true regardless of where the aneurysm is locat- ed. If the aneurysmal sac is full of clotted blood, there is danger of clot formation and ob- struction, but usually the real concern is the possibility of a rapture of the artery involved. Carotid arteries can be opei- ated on, this is true whether they are obstructed, ing blood flow to the brain, or if you have an aneurysm as you have described it. Sometimes an appar e n t aneurysm is really a kinking of the artery associated with the way it may be caught or directed around the muscles or other structures in the neck or just because the artery is ex- cessively long and it's kinked on itself. If that should be the case, the excessive length can merely be snipped out and the ends of the arteries sewed back together. In any case, surgery can be done in these instances and it seems to me that what you really need is a consulta- tion from a cardiovascular sur- geon. I note from the address on your letter that there should be a cardiovascular surgeon lo- cated within a reasonable dis- tance of your home. The size and nature -of t n e aneurysm you're describing can be out- lined with special studies and x-ray procedures. If jour doc- tor has not already done so, ask him to arrange for a con- saltation with a cardiovascular It's possible that your condi- tion can be corrected without too much difficulty. I must add that not all carotid surgery is simple and without complica- tions, but in many instances there are surgical procedures which can be done for the pro- blem.

NORTH OQJT QJ WEST EAST 4Q98CSZ OA5 SOUTH 7AKC43 0113 TbebiddiDg: SMtk West North East 1 1 e> 4 Pan Opening lead: Ace of O Ideally, the game of bridge should be played at an even tempo, with all bids and plays nude at the same speed. Unfortunately, we are humans, not computers, and there are times when we most pause to consider the situation. East failed to do so on this deal, and the re- mit was costly to his side. West's suit is rather rag- ged for an overran, but the vulnerability was in his favor. He felt be could hardly come to much harm as any penalty wsuU proba- bly be offset by the value of what his opponents could make. Bad South chosen to bid three clubs as game tfiPBC DO UllDlp Illitflrt ban been bid and made, bathe fett that his Attri- bution and two good suits warranted a leap to game in the major suit West led the monds, and East showed bis approval by rigmimg ttaeViie. West continued the soft to dummy's jack and East's king, and East wast- ed no time in trying to give his partner a ruff by leading a third round of the suit. Hie defense scored a ruff, but lost their chance to de- feat the contact Declarer discarded his singleton spade on the third diamond as West ruffed. The spade shift now came too late as declarer ruffed, drew' trumps in two rounds and claimed the rest of the Had East paused to reflect' before leading to the third trick, be might have found the winning defense. Dum-. ray's spade holding should have served as a warning. West had overcalled in spades with a suit headed by nothing higher than the queen. Thus, there was every likelihood that he held a six-card suit. It that were the case, East could count South for at best a singleton spade. In view of Smith's leap to game, it was unlikely that the defenders were go- ing to collect any trick in clubs. Therefore, it was im- perative that the defenders score their spade trick before it got dia- mond raff alone would not be enough to defeat the contract. On this reason- ing, East should have cashed the ace of spades be- fore playing third dia- mond, and declarer would nave oeen aoomen. The danger that declarer was void in spades was a minor consideration. It was a near certainty that the contract was going to make if the defenders could not score a spade trick, and alt East was risking by first at- tempting to cash the ace was an small price to pay. Nuclear fusion Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to David Smith, age 11, if Tucson, Arizona, for his question: Why does hydrogen give heat when it changes to helium? This is nuclear fusion, the dynamic activity that ignites the stars. Physicists believe that the sun's energy is created as small hydrogen atoms fuse to form larger atoms of helium. However, there is a catch. The surface of the sun is not nearly hot enough to ignite such a fnry furnace. But after fusion is started, fragments of matter are converted into energy. The heat energy from converted fragments of hydrogjn is thought to be enough to kew the furnace going. A 50-megaton H-bomb dem- onstrates what happens when hydrogen atoms fuse to create atoms of helium. In a split sec- ond, it explodes with fiery fury equal to about 50 million tons of TNT. However, this is but a small sample of what goes on continuously in ths sun. Physi- cists assume that it converts hydrogen to helium because these are the sun's main gases and also because it can gener- ate enough heat to start such a furnace. Tremendous heat is involved in. fusing small atomic nuclei and the process Is called ther- monuclear reaction. bydro- gen-to-helium seems logical be- cause, though more than 70 elements exist in the sun, vir- tually all of it is hydrogen and helium. The sun contains 99.8 per cent of the total matter in the Solar System, or enough to make earth-type planets. However, the big blazing ball is made of gassous material called plasma. Enormous pres- sures, gravity and magnetic fields, strip electrons and oth- er particles from normal atoms. Hence, the plasma is In- fused with charged nuchi and sundry ions. The sun's core is estimated to be about 15 mil- lion degrees centigrade. This, plus its enormous pressure, could be enough to fuse hydro- gen nuclei to form helium nu- clei. But the process is very, very slow. Physicists suspect that tte process is speeded up by stray neutrons in the solar plasma. The nucleus of ordinary hydro- gen contains only a proton. If it abosrbs a neutron it be- comes hydrogen-two, alias deu- terium. If it absorbs two neu- trons it becomes hydrogen- three, alias tritium. It is thought that the fusion of these hydrogen isotopes requires less heat to create nuclei of helium- four. This is what most experts think happens in the sun. In any case, the hydrogen pairs contain more material than needed to build a single helium nucleus. During the dynamic fusion process, this surplus matter is converted in- to energy. This energy provides the best hydrogen changes into helium. When the solar furnace was ignited, matter was converted to energy and provided enough heat to keep it going. The sun has an abundant sup- ply of hydrogen and this nu- clear fuel is being consumed at a fantastic rate. It is esti- mated that every second, day and night, 650 million tons of hydrogen become helium. Dur- ing tte process, tons of matter are converted into energy. This is the source of the sun's light, heat and other forms of radiant energy. (Copyright Chronicle PnbHsUng Co. 1173) JULIUS HAS }U; V BECOME SO UNW3MMJTIC fOK.
