A flexible, miniaturized, and focused microwave antenna system for medical applications

R. S. Kasevich Proceedings of 17th International Conference of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1995

A flexible and miniaturized prototype microwave balloon angioplasty (MBA) catheter system has been developed for percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). The miniaturized antenna design is also suitable for applications involving localized hyperthermia for cancer treatment and microwave thermal ablation. The development program was sponsored by C.R. Bard, USCI division, Billerica, Massachusetts in collaboration with Dr. Robert Schwartz of the Mayo ...


Percutaneous transluminal microwave balloon angioplasty

Microwave balloon angioplasty (MBA), which combines conventional balloon angioplasty techniques with microwave heating to help enlarge the lumen of narrowed arteries and reduce the occurrence of restenosis, is discussed. An apparatus for the delivery of MBA using 2450 MHz heating power is described. Using this apparatus, local arterial wall temperatures as higher 90°C were obtained during MBA on anesthetized rabbits. ...


Fractional flow reserve in coronary artery stenosis and hyperemia

Jingsheng Liao; K. Khaw; J. K. -J. Li Proceedings of the IEEE 28th Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference (IEEE Cat. No.02CH37342), 2002

Coronary angioplasty and pressure tracing records of patients with coronary artery stenosis and subsequent hyperemia conditions were obtained and analyzed. Fractional flow reserve (FFR) was calculated and plotted against percent of area stenosis. Under adenosine-induced hyperemia, FFR decreased. The extent of decrease is determined by the percent of stenosis and the responsiveness of intramural coronary artery


3-D quantitative assessment of coronary luminal morphology using biplane digital angiography

R. O. Kenet; E. M. Herrold; G. J. Tearney; K. K. Wong; J. P. Hill; J. S. Borer Proceedings. Computers in Cardiology 1988, 1988

A method of three-dimensional reconstruction and quantitative description of coronary luminal shape was developed using constrained binary reconstruction of serial vessel cross sections from biplane digital cineangiograms, followed by the application of a quantitative measure of luminal cross-sectional roundedness. Such roundedness is inversely related to luminal eccentricity and thus may provide prognostic information about the stability of coronary stenoses. Examples ...


Lasers And Angioplasty

W. P. Santamore; W. Untereker; D. Ogilby Electro International, 1991, 1991

Percutanous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) has revolutionized the treatment of coronary disease. However, a high restenosis rate is still a major complication of PTCA. In theory, the incidence of restenosis might be lower with laser techniques because atheromatous mass within the artery can be removed rather than pressed against the vessel wall. Further, the treated surface may be less ragged ...
