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

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.

Localization of ischemia during coronary angioplasty using body surface potential mapping and an electrocardiographic inverse solution

Proceedings Computers in Cardiology, 1992

The authors describe a qualitative, in vivo validation of a solution to the inverse problem of cardiology using percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty as a model of transient ischemia in humans. Body surface potential mapping with 117 unipolar electrodes was used to collect torso potential distributions from patients with single-vessel coronary artery disease before, during, and after inflation of the balloon ...


The case of the two-edged sword [Patents]

IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Magazine, 2008

The case involved two competing manufacturers of equipment used in procedures such as angioplasty for automatically injecting contrast media into a patient from a plastic syringe. Because the syringe can be subject to pressures of 1,000 lbf/in<sup>2</sup> or more, the conventional approach had been to house the syringe in a pressure jacket and to load the syringe into the jacket ...

  • Localization of ischemia during coronary angioplasty using body surface potential mapping and an electrocardiographic inverse solution

    The authors describe a qualitative, in vivo validation of a solution to the inverse problem of cardiology using percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty as a model of transient ischemia in humans. Body surface potential mapping with 117 unipolar electrodes was used to collect torso potential distributions from patients with single-vessel coronary artery disease before, during, and after inflation of the balloon catheter. A boundary-element solution of the homogeneous inverse problem based on a realistic model of the human torso provided estimates of the epicardial potentials from which it was possible to locate regions of transient ischemia. These regions of estimated ischemia agreed well with those predicted on the basis of coronary angiograms and balloon placement.<<ETX>>

  • The case of the two-edged sword [Patents]

    The case involved two competing manufacturers of equipment used in procedures such as angioplasty for automatically injecting contrast media into a patient from a plastic syringe. Because the syringe can be subject to pressures of 1,000 lbf/in<sup>2</sup> or more, the conventional approach had been to house the syringe in a pressure jacket and to load the syringe into the jacket from the back. Liebel-Flarsheim (LF) developed an improved injection system that still used a pressure jacket but allowed the syringe to be loaded from the front, which technicians found more convenient. LF applied for a patent on its improved system. In its claims, it specified that the syringe was loaded into a front opening of a pressure jacket.

  • Application of a minimized wearable device combined with SpO2 and ECG sensors to detect stenosis or occlusion of arteriovenous fistula/graft, progression of arteriosclerosis and arrhythmia

    Stroke is a common disease in modern society, which is the occluded and/or hemorrhaging of the blood vessels in the brain, producing blood clots leading to brain dysfunctions. When faced with the risk of stroke, most people tend to measure their blood pressure first; however, aside from hypertension, vessel atherosclerosis and loss of elasticity are also the causes for blood vessel stenosis and/or rupturing. Additionally, in dialysis patients, prolonged needle puncture will also decrease vessel elasticity, which leads to increased stenosis of hemodialysis access and ineffective hemodialysis. In this study, we proposed a method to integrate and analyze signals measured from SpO2 and ECG sensors to detect blood vessel elasticity and stenosis. Our proposed system has advantages in size and cost, is portable and allows patients to record real-time and long-term blood vessel health status. Our method is a non-invasive measurement of the physiological signals, which can rapidly analyze the stenosis of hemodialysis access, and to take long-term records. The data collected can be analyzed by physicians for precision medicine and preventative health.

  • Coronary artery stents microfabricated from planar metal foil: design, fabrication, and mechanical testing

    This paper presents a new approach to the design and manufacture of coronary artery stents, which permits the use of planar batch fabrication technologies. Stent samples with different wall patterns have been fabricated from 50-/spl mu/m thick stainless steel foil using micro-electro-discharge machining, and expanded to tubular shapes by using angioplasty balloons. The stents exhibit diameter variations of </spl plusmn/4 %, almost zero radial recoil after deflation of the balloon, and longitudinal shrinkage of <3 % upon expansion. Loading tests reveal that the radial strengths match commercially available stents which have twice the wall thickness, while longitudinal compliance, at 0.02 m/N for a 4-mm long section of the stent, is >10/spl times/ higher.

  • Laser coronary angioplasty using carbon monoxide lasers

    A study was made of a laser angioplasty system using a CO laser, 5 mu m in wavelength. To achieve therapeutic irradiation in a water solution, the authors developed a contact CO laser irradiation method which uses an optical fiber to carry the laser beam to the lesion. The authors have also developed a thin coronary angioscope catheter for diagnosis and targeting of this therapy.<<ETX>>

  • The dose distribution around the edges of an improved /sup 32/P source for endovascular brachytherapy: a Monte Carlo study

    Endovascular brachytherapy has proven to be an effective tool in the reduction of restenosis following balloon angioplasty for coronary heart disease, while the range of optimal doses and precise target tissue are still unknown. However, over-dosing has been associated with increased thrombogenicity and permanent damage to vessel walls. Under-dosing has been found to stimulate neointima formation, causing restenosis. It has been suggested that restenosis near the edges (edge effect) of the intervention may be caused by the dose falloff towards near the source ends. Monte Carlo code EGS4 was used to calculate the dose distribution around the ends of a Guidant /sup 32/P source. At the ends of the source the 100% isodose curve was found to bend back toward the source starting at about 3 mm from the end of the active source (prescription to 2 mm radius). The 80% isodose line crossed the prescription line 1 mm from the source ends. Further calculations predicted improvement can be achieved by changing the specific activity within 1 mm of the ends of the source. A four-fold increase in specific activity in 0.5 mm segments at the ends of the source, followed by a 0.5 mm gap between the ends and the middle part of the source, kept the 100% isodose line at the prescription distance to within 0.5 mm of the active length of the source without any over-dosing. With five times the activity in the terminal segments, a "full length source" is achieved, involving a small over-dosing.
