Neurology’s Brian Koo studies restless legs, cardiovascular disease

Active legs at night linked to heart problems

Reuters: Men who jerk and flex their legs involuntarily at night are more likely to develop cardiovascular disease, according to a new study led by Brian Koo, assistant professor of neurology. The study isn’t proof that overactive limbs cause heart problems, but “people have to keep an open mind into some other possible risk factors for these things,” he said.
