Abstract:

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term objective of this project is the introduction of "smart stethoscope" technology to immediately, accurately, safely, easily and inexpensively detect blood vessel compromise using computerized analysis of vascular sounds. The specific goal of this project is to develop a device for surveillance of vascular bypass grafts, and renal hemodialysis access grafts and fistulas. The final product will not only detect the presence of stenosis but also its degree of severity. Advantages of the device include: high accuracy, non- invasiveness, low cost, ease of use, minimal training requirements, and immediate results. The Phase I effort focused on renal dialysis access grafts and fistulas, and showed high accuracy (p
