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)

BHI is "informatics for smart, precision and preventive medicine."

2018 IEEE International Symposium on Medical Measurements and Applications (MeMeA)

The symposium deals with all the aspects of interactions among the worlds of theinstrumentation and measurement, bio-engineering, material science, chemical and biologicalmeasurements, and the medical field. The symposium enables researchers, doctors andtechnicians to exchange ideas and information, make connections and collaborations andupdate innovation on health care systems and diagnostics in medicine.

A diagnostic technique is proposed to identify patients with carotid stenosis who could most benefit from angioplasty followed by stent implantation. This methodology involves performing a parametric study to investigate the haemodynamic behavior due to alterations in the stenosis shapes in the internal carotid artery (ICA). A pulsatile 1-D Navier-Stokes solver incorporating fluid-wall interactions for a Newtonian fluid which predicts ...

Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) has proven to be beneficial to patients in danger of death from myocardial infarction. The major limitation with this modern success in conquering coronary (or any other vessel) obstruction is the phenomenon of restenosis. The pathology underlying restenosis differs substantially from the pathology of the disease leading to the obstruction of the blood vessel, namely, ...

Nitric oxide-generating hydrogels have been shown to inhibit smooth muscle cell proliferation and platelet adhesion, as well as promote endothelial cell proliferation; for this reason these hydrogels should be useful in preventing restenosis, or vessel re-occlusion, following balloon angioplasty. Over 600,000 percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) procedures are performed annually in the U.S.; unfortunately. 30-40% of patients treated with PTCA ...
