Percutaneous Size-Adjustable Tricuspid Valve Repair Device and Delivery Platform in Patients With or Without Pre-existing Pacemaker or Defibrillator Leads
Tech ID: sie001114IntroductionTricuspid regurgitation (TR) is a disorder in which the tricuspid valve does not close tightly enough, causing blood to flow backward into the right atrium when the right ventricle contracts. In the U.S. alone, 1.6 million patients are estimated to have TR. If left untreated, TR can lead to heart enlargement, heart fai...

ECMO/RVAD Cannulae and Insertion Technique Using Pressure Transduction
Tech ID: nur001064IntroductionAs the number of patients with lung and right heart failure increases, the need for extracorporeal life support also increases. Two methods of providing this support are extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) or use of a right ventricular assist device (RVAD), both of which require fluoroscopic guidance if the desi...

Soukiasian Pleurodesis System
Tech ID: sou001141 IntroductionPleural effusion, or fluid accumulation in the pleural space, causes pressure on the lungs, making it difficult to expand them fully during respiration. Fluid build-up in the pleural space can cause shortness of breath, chest pain, and even a collapsed lung. This condition is typically seen in patients with cancer, h...

Urethral Attenuator - Urethra Sparing Applicator for Brachytherapy
Tech ID: kam001143IntroductionHigh dose rate prostate brachytherapy is a common treatment for prostate cancer. Unfortunately, the radiation used during this procedure can irritate and/or injure the urethra since the urethra runs through the prostate. Irritation and/or injury to the urethra can cause short-term problems, including increased urinary ...

Device for Advanced Functional Brain Monitoring With and Without Simultaneous Brain Fluid Drainage - Ventrode
Tech ID: ros000984IntroductionPlacing an external ventricular drain is commonly the first, life-saving procedure performed on many patients with moderate to severe brain injury or an obstruction of brain fluid. Furthermore, surface electroencephalography (EEG), which uses electrodes placed on a patient’s scalp, is used to monitor electrical s...
