  1. Hematopoietic Cell Expansion System

    SBC: Aastrom Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: n/a

    Bone marrow transplant (BMT) is an extraordinarily rapidly growing field, and the number of transplants in the U. S. is expected to grow from a current rate of 15,000 per year to over 100,000 per year by 1995. This rapid expansion is due to the diversity in the types of bone marrow transplantation procedures and the number of clinical procedures that can be benefitted by a BMT. Major limiting fact ...

  6. Tubular Pediatric Ventricular Assist Device

    SBC: Abiomed, Inc.            Topic: n/a

    The use of dedicated pulsatile ventricular support devices (VAD) for circulatory support is becoming an accepted treatment modality for adult patients requiring support due to post-cardiotomy pump failure or post-AMI cariogenic shock; the VAD could also be used as a bridge to transplant. Although temporary circulatory support in pediatric patients is being performed with ECMO or centrifugal pumps, ...

  7. Miniature Elctrohydraulic Total Artificial Heart

    SBC: Abiomed, Inc.            Topic: n/a

    The limited availability of donor hearts for people with end stage heart failure has driven the condevelopment of mechanical circulatory support systems (MCSSs). MCSSs can be broadly classified intocontinuous flow systems. Pulsatile systems drive blood indirectly through blood pumps, resulting inThis disadvantage of these systems, however, is their relatively large size. Continuous flow systemssim ...

  9. Development of Calcification Resistant Valve Prosthesis

    SBC: Abiomed, Inc.            Topic: n/a

    Calcification of blood contacting surfaces has been the key impediment to the development of polymevalve prostheses and other polymeric implantables. The deposition of calcium plaques as hydroxyapatiand potentially leads to valve dysfunction. That calcification proceeds preferentially along surfacestress only exacerbates the problem. This work is based on the hypothesis that calcification along fa ...
