Southfield, Mich., Oct. 18, 2023 – A new Corewell Health study suggests that men who have longer prostatic urethras, the part of the urethra that travels through the prostate, may be at a higher risk of experiencing moderate, often chronic urinary side effects after receiving radiation for prostate cancer.
To date, researchers have struggled to determine any risk factors that could shed light on who might experience these types of side effects ahead of time. But now, a simple MRI scan and a new metric to determine urethra length could change that.
Alzheimer’s disease is the fourth leading cause of death among older Black Americans, a trend that is expected to increase exponentially during the next five to 10 years.

Thorpe, Ph.D., social epidemiologist with Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and director of the Johns Hopkins Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center for Minority Aging, are spearheading a first-of-its-kind, five-year, $4.8 million research project funded by the National Institutes of Health.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Oct. 2, 2023 – Corewell Health™ has become the first and only health system in Michigan to implant a device intended to improve upper body mobility in patients who have experienced a debilitating stroke.
In clinical trials, the Vivistim Paired VNS System, coupled with intensive rehabilitation therapy, has resulted in improved hand and arm function for stroke survivors.
The FDA-approved device, which was surgically implanted by surgeons at Corewell Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids, delivers vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) during rehabilitation therapy. The pairing of rehabilitation exercise with VNS creates or strengthens nerve connections in healthy areas of the brain, which increases the effectiveness of the therapy and has been shown to improve upper limb function.
