Alexandre Ferreira distinguished with National Gastroenterology Award

The distinction Prémio Nacional de Gastrenterologia 2021 was awarded to Alexandre Ferreira, gastroenterologist at Hospital da Luz and Hospital Beatriz Ângelo (HBA), for his research work on the use of a particular technology in colonoscopy exams for detection of colon and rectum cancer. This is the most important distinction in the research area of gastroenterology, this year amounting to 10 thousand euros, promoted by the Portuguese Society of Gastroenterology. Colon and rectum tumours are one of the main causes of death by cancer and the colonoscopy exam, done early in prevention screenings, makes it possible to reduce the incidence of cases and mortality. In the work now distinguished – entitled “Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) versus white light for the detection of sessile serrated colorectal lesions: a randomized clinical trial” –, Alexandre Ferreira investigated the benefit of the use of narrow band imaging (NBI) during colonoscopy, for the detection of premalignant lesions, namely serrated lesions.

Arrhythmia: do you know how the smallest pacemaker in the world works?

“The pacemaker is a device that compensates the disease of the heart’s electric tissue. Every time the heart ‘skips’ a beat, the pacemaker releases a small electrical stimulus, that the patient does not perceive, but which reminds the heart it is time to contract again”, explains Diogo Cavaco during the reportage ‘Futuro Hoje’, on SIC. The Hospital da Luz Lisboa cardiologist, particularly devoted to the area of cardiac rhythm alterations, was invited by the TV show, broadcasted on July 27, to describe how it is implanted and how the smallest pacemaker in the world works, having already inserted them in over a hundred patients.
