Heart Valve That Grows Along With Child Could Reduce Invasive Surgeries

For the first time, a prosthetic pulmonary valve replacement specifically designed for pediatric patients can expand over time inside a child’s anatomy. This could eliminate the need to perform invasive replacement surgeries every few years as the child will not require another replacement procedure until reaching adulthood. More...

Novel ECG Technology Utilizes AI for Early Detection of Heart Disease

Conventional electrocardiographs (ECGs) have always played a limited role in evaluating cardiac dysfunction due to their limited sensitivity in identifying structural and ischemic heart disease. Now, the ECG could become a far more valuable screening tool for the early detection of heart disease through the use of artificial intelligence. More...

Wirelessly Connected Microimplants Enable Patient-Doctor Communication

Researchers have developed a new generation of active, wirelessly connected microimplants that could be implanted in the body for life. In addition to communicating with each other, these implants also allow the patient and doctor to communicate with the network from outside at any time. More...

First-Of-Its-Kind Technology Enables Replacement of Diseased Heart Valve without Surgery

Currently, complex open-heart surgery to repair or replace the leaky heart valve is the most effective treatment for such patients but is offered to just 2% of patients due to a high surgical risk. Now, a unique platform offers a first-of-its-kind technology for allowing implantation of a biological bioprosthesis to replace the diseased valve through catheterization only. More...

Groundbreaking Biomaterial Injected Intravenously Repairs Cells and Tissue Damaged by Heart Attack and TBI

Following a heart attack, there is development of scar tissue, which affects muscle function and can result in congestive heart failure. Now, a newly-developed biomaterial that can be injected intravenously reduces inflammation in tissue and encourages cell and tissue repair. More...

First Fabric-Based Sensor Enables Real-Time Monitoring of Physiological Signals

Researchers have synthesized a new material that resolves the problem of pressure, paving the way for wearable, unobtrusive sensitive sensors that work even when the pressure is pushing down on the wearer. More...

First-of-Its-Kind Electronic Skin Patch Enables Advanced Health Care Monitoring

Scientists have used a novel gelatin-based, highly porous substrate to devise a first-of-its-kind E-skin patch for advanced healthcare monitoring. Using an optimum choice in materials and a novel fabrication method, the E-skin patch provides simultaneous, continuous monitoring of multiple bodily parameters, along with providing temperature-moisture management and breathability.
