Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 12, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, October 12, 1971 THE lETHBRIDCE HERALD 5 Heart research tests continue MONTREAL (CP) Dr. Serge Renaud stared at the rats he was experimenting with in the Montreal Heart Institute, a medical centre dedicated en- tirely to the diagnosis and treat- ment of heart disease. One rat's hair was falling out, its arteries were hardening and it was ripe for a heart attack. "We kill them with pure but- ter." said Dr. Renaud, origi- nally from the Bordeaux area of France. "Butter is poison." In his experiments, Dr. Re- naud has discovered diet condi- tions that affect healthy hearts in rats. Similar diets will event- ually be applied to humans. The institute has been devoted to research since its inception in Maisonneuve Hospital in 1956. Experiments are still going on in its new 110-bed hospital where 25 full-time medical spe- cialists, 24 residents in training and three full-lime cardiologists working on research continue to combat heart disease. Among them is Dr. Martial Bourassa, who developed a technique for injecting fluid into the heart allowing x-ray movies to be taken while the heart is in action. Doctors now can locate exactly where arteries and veins have hardened or are likely to harden. Dr. Bourassa developed a three-foot tube which is injected DIMNIK Inserted fay the Dimhik For Alderman Committee through a blood vessel in the arm carrying the fluiu to the heart. Another researcher, Dr. Ar- thur Vincbcrg, developed a method of grafting blood vessels hi (lie heart, bypassing those that are clogged to maintain the blood supply to teart muscles. His method has teen adopted by doctors in the United States and Europe. The institute is involved in the practical application of re- search. For example, the insti- tute trained a complete team of doctors and nurses from Santo Domingo and followed it up by sending one of its own teams to help the republic set up centre. The needed to send the team, headed by Dr. Pierre Grondin, was provided by grants from the federal and pro- vincial governments. Last year the institute per- formed 836 operations on weak hearts, 153 operations replacing diseased or defective heart valves with artificial ones, and implanted in 126 persons a bat- tery-powered pacemaker which gives the heart a stimulus whenever it falters. But Dr. Paul David, the insti- tute's director, says its work is not enough ti, combat heart dis- ease, the cause of death for one of three persons over 40. "Our experience is that peo- ple being stricken are younger and younger. I know of one man who had a heart attack at 34 and this is not exceptional. "We see many men between the ages of 40 and most productive heart attacks." defectors swiin from China TAIPEI (Reuter) Taiwan's central news agency said Fri- day that persons from 3iina sought refuge in Hong Kong last month. Most of them swam across Deep Bay to Hong Kong, the agency said. In Hong Kong, reliable sources have also reported a sharp increase in the number of Chinese "freedom swimmers."

BUCK, MANAGER OPEN MONDAY TO SATURDAY 8 A.M. TO P.M. Aid to sex problem Wives may visit jailed husbands OTTAWA (CP) S-jlidtor- Gencrl Jean-Pierre Goycr says Jic penitentiaries service ry to organize a program of conjugal visits for married pris- oners. However, he added in an in- terview, that doesn't by far solve the sex problem in federal penitentiaries. "If the intention is to say any inmate should have normal sex- relations instead of, for ex- ample, illegal homosexual rela- tions, then we should also pay atlcnlion to those who are un- married." The average age of the male prisoners is 35 and many of them are unmarried. At present, they are denied any sexual relationship with a woman, wile or not. One notorious result, among men serving terms ranging from twit years to life, has been homosexual relations. MANY SINGLE Because many prisoners are single, this presumably would continue even if conjugal visits were allowed. Mr. Goycr said the whole problem "is a very difficult one because a lot of the have no family as such." Scandinavian countries have worked yet implement- program for a healthier sex life for prisoners and Can- ada is looking at it, Mr. Coyer said. "We intend to put our minds to his possibility." Meanwhile, efforts are being made to provide more privacy when family members vi.sit prisoners in maximum-security institutions, he said in a state- ment Thursday. In prisons of medium or mini- mum security, a leave system based on merit might help solve the sex probleir, Mr. said.
