  1. Optical Periodontal Probe

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective is an optical periodontal probe tailored to automatically measure and record multiple tissue parameters deemed important for disease detection and treatment monitoring. As a first step in the development of a multi-functional device, a probe designed to mimic the visual measurements made by dental clinicians to determine pocket depth, bleeding on probing (BOP) and tissue coloration w ...

  2. 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, ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Remote Suture Placement--Laparoscopic Abdominal Surgery

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Minimal access abdominal surgery through the laparoscope has generally replaced surgical procedureslaparotomy for several common procedures, including cholecystectomy and appendectomy. More complicatgastrointestinal operations are also being attempted laparoscopically. Many of these procedures aretechniques which are not yet standard laparoscopic techniques. A basic surgical technique necessarythe ...

  5. 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 ...

  9. PHASED ARRAY SYSTEM FOR MRI GUIDED ULTRASOUND SURGERY

    SBC: Advanced Surgical Systems,            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1996 Department of Health and Human Services
  10. LARGE AREA IMAGING DETECTOR FOR TRITIUM SAMPLES

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MOST OF THE TISSUE IN THE HUMAN BODY REGENERATES AFTER INJURY. ONE OF THE FEW TISSUES THAT ARE UNABLE TO REGENERATE IS THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM (CNS). RESEARCHERS USE RADIOACTIVE TRITIUM (3H) COMPOUNDS TO LABEL THESE PROTEINS TO IDENTIFY THE PROTEINS THAT MAY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE INABILITY OF THE CNS TO REGENERATE. A MAJOR TECHNICAL HURDLE THAT IMPEDES THE RATE OF PROGRESS ARISES FROM THE FACT ...
