Whenever I can, I try to attend the meeting of the European MH Group.  The group consists of many scientists and physicians who are actively investigating malignant hyperthermia and Central Core Disease and their relation to other muscle diseases.

Are You Prepared for MH?
Dr. Henry Rosenberg MD, CPE
June 1, 2008

The death of Stephanie Kuleba from MH in March, 2008 during cosmetic surgery in an office-based operating room was a striking reminder that MH may occur wherever anesthesia is administered.  This event has caused anguish, pain and grief for the family and friends of this young woman as well as the providers of care.  This post also available via the President's Blog Podcast.

Malignant Hyperthermia Syndrome -- an International Problem
Dr. Henry Rosenberg MD, CPE
May 1, 2008

At the end of May many of the world's researchers and experts in the study of MH will gather in Lund, Sweden as part of the annual European MH Group meeting (see their web site at www.EMHG.org). The meeting will last three days and consist of updates and laboratory and clinical research and prospects for the future regarding MH.

This reminds me that MH is indeed an international problem and not limited to specific ethnic or religious groups. Wherever MH has been looked for, it has been found.

The (Re) Discovery of Malignant Hyperthermia
Dr. Henry Rosenberg MD, CPE
April 1, 2008

MH was first formally described in 1960 by physicians in Australia, including an anesthesiologist and a geneticist (Michael Denborough).  In recent years there has been greater and greater interest in MH by the medical community in general as well as basic scientists. The reasons for this are many, including the recognition that certain disorders of muscle predispose patients to MH, the concern that some MH patients may have muscle related problems without anesthesia, but one of the most important reasons is the growing interest in the subject of pharmacogenetics.
