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...

First Ever Ureteroscope System Monitors Intrarenal Pressure in Real-Time During Ureteroscopy Procedures

High intrarenal pressure (IRP) after ureteroscopies can cause various post-operative complications including systemic inflammatory response syndrome, sepsis and renal damage. Now, the first ever ureteroscope system with the ability to monitor IRP in real-time during ureteroscopy procedures could resolve this problem. 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...

Modifying Intestinal Flora Before Surgery Reduces Postoperative Complications in Colorectal Cancer Patients

Up to 30% of all patients undergoing colorectal surgery suffer from serious complications due to poor healing of their intestinal barrier. A team of scientists has now identified two bacterial strains that directly affect whether or not anastomotic leakage, more commonly known as intestinal leakage, occurs. More...

Implantable Neuro-Chip Uses Machine Learning Algorithm to Detect and Treat Neurological Disorders

Using a combination of low-power chip design, machine learning algorithms, and soft implantable electrodes, researchers have produced a neural interface that can identify and suppress symptoms of different types of neurological disorders. More...

Customized Device to Treat Brain Aneurysms Could Reduce Risk of Recurrence

A five-year research project will lead to the design of a device that can be customized to better treat unique aneurysms which can be deadly. The researchers will use advanced biomedical 3-D printing to design and create unique, customized devices that can be tailored to the specific geometrical shape, size and location of an aneurysm. More...
