PITTSBURGH — A momentary glance at a news story led Meghan Orbich to the operation that would save her son's life. Orbich, 35, of Oakmont, was scrolling through the Web last year while her son Ian was in Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, still struggling to breathe despite two open heart operations, a surgical opening in his throat, and a ventilator. She spotted a news story about how doctors at the University of Michigan had used 3D printing to create splints to prop open the airways of two boys suffering from the same kind of rare condition as her son.

ST. LOUIS — Eighteen black women who were told decades ago that their babies had died soon after birth at a St. Louis hospital now wonder if the infants were taken away by hospital officials to be raised by other families. The suspicions arose from the story of Zella Jackson Price, who said she was 26 in 1965 when she gave birth at Homer G. Phillips Hospital in St. Louis. Hours later, she was told that her daughter had died, but she never saw a body or a death certificate. No one is sure who was responsible, but Price's daughter ended up in foster care, only to resurface almost 50 years later. Melanie Gilmore, who now lives in Eugene, Ore.

NEW YORK — Infomercials that sell shampoos, zit creams and the latest weight loss gadgets can be hard to turn away from. But before you pick up that phone, you should know that the low, low prices and easy monthly payments advertised are not always what you'll pay. “There are many problems with infomercials,” says Edgar Dworsky, the editor of consumer resource guide ConsumerWorld.org. “Not all of them are misleading, but many are.” Leaving aside whether the miracle products really work as advertised (some do, but always check out online reviews at Amazon.com or elsewhere), you have to be careful and aware that the $19.95 price touted often will
