2018 7th IEEE International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics (Biorob)

The RAS/EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics - BioRob 2018 - is a joint effort of the two IEEE Societies of Robotics and Automation - RAS - and Engineering in Medicine and Biology - EMBS.BioRob covers both theoretical and experimental challenges posed by the application of robotics and mechatronics in medicine and biology. The primary focus of Biorobotics is to analyze biological systems from a "biomechatronic" point of view, trying to understand the scientific and engineering principles underlying their extraordinary performance. This profound understanding of how biological systems work, behave and interact can be used for two main objectives: to guide the design and fabrication of novel, high performance bio-inspired machines and systems for many different applications; and to develop novel nano, micro-, macro- devices that can act upon, substitute parts of, and assist human beings in prevention, diagnosis, surgery, prosthetics, rehabilitation.

2018 IEEE EMBS International Conference on Biomedical & Health Informatics (BHI)

Vol.28 (Cat. No.01CH37287), None

The aim of the study was to determine whether Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) influences T wave alternans and standard spectral parameters of heart rate variability. We measured high resolution ECGs in 28 patients before and after PTCA of one coronary. For each ECG the T wave alternans ratio (TWAR) was measured according to the algorithm of Rosenbaum (1996). In ...

The development of interventional procedures in the catheterization laboratory drives the introduction of simple, fast and accurate quantification methods. Quantification is used to evaluate the volume of the left ventricle but also for choosing the size of a balloon or a stent during the percutaneous coronary angioplasty procedure. The objective of the calibration procedure is to establish the relation between ...

TMLR (Transmyocardial Laser Revascularization) has been introduced to treat severe coronary artery disease that cannot be treated by conventional treatments such as PTCA (percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty) or CABG (coronary artery bypass grafting). TMLR is a laser-ablation-based surgical procedure in which laser channels are created through the myocardium to increase the flow of blood in the oxygen-starved tissue, thereby relieving ...

Time-frequency analysis of heart sounds before and after angioplasty

Heart sounds have been recorded from patients with coronary artery disease before and after angioplasty in the cardiology department of the Royal Adelaide Hospital. We present an algorithm to decompose the recorded signals to beat cycles synchronized with electrocardiogram (ECG) and detect the most correlated cycles. Time-frequency analysis is carried out on the isolated beat cycles, and another algorithm is ...

QRS Slopes for Detection and Characterization of Myocardial Ischemia

[{u'author_order': 1, u'affiliation': u'Aragon Inst. for Eng. Res., Zaragoza', u'full_name': u'Esther Pueyo'}, {u'author_order': 2, u'full_name': u'Leif Sornmo'}, {u'author_order': 3, u'full_name': u'Pablo Laguna'}] IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 2008

In this study, the upward (IUS) and downward (IDS) slopes of the QRS complex are proposed as indices for quantifying ischemia-induced electrocardiogram (ECG) changes. Using ECG recordings acquired before and during percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), it is found that the QRS slopes are considerably less steep during artery occlusion, in particular for IDS. With respect to ischemia detection, the ...
