Lasers: An optical source that emits photons in a coherent beam. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) is brought about using devices that transform light of varying frequencies into a single intense, nearly nondivergent beam of monochromatic radiation. Lasers operate in the infrared, visible, ultraviolet, or X-ray regions of the spectrum.Optical Fibers: Thin strands of transparent material, usually glass, that are used for transmitting light waves over long distances.Laser Therapy: The use of photothermal effects of LASERS to coagulate, incise, vaporize, resect, dissect, or resurface tissue.Angioscopy: Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery performed on the interior of blood vessels.Flow Injection Analysis: The analysis of a chemical substance by inserting a sample into a carrier stream of reagent using a sample injection valve that propels the sample downstream where mixing occurs in a coiled tube, then passes into a flow-through detector and a recorder or other data handling device.Lasers, Semiconductor: Lasers with a semiconductor diode as the active medium. Diode lasers transform electric energy to light using the same principle as a light-emitting diode (LED), but with internal reflection capability, thus forming a resonator where a stimulated light can reflect back and forth, allowing only a certain wavelength to be emitted. The emission of a given device is determined by the active compound used (e.g., gallium arsenide crystals doped with aluminum or indium). Typical wavelengths are 810, 1,060 and 1,300 nm. (From UMDNS, 2005)Fiber Optic Technology: The technology of transmitting light over long distances through strands of glass or other transparent material.Arteriosclerosis Obliterans: Common occlusive arterial disease which is caused by ATHEROSCLEROSIS. It is characterized by lesions in the innermost layer (ARTERIAL INTIMA) of arteries including the AORTA and its branches to the extremities. Risk factors include smoking, HYPERLIPIDEMIA, and HYPERTENSION.Coronary Occlusion: Complete blockage of blood flow through one of the CORONARY ARTERIES, usually from CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS.Thromboangiitis Obliterans: A non-atherosclerotic, inflammatory thrombotic disease that commonly involves small and medium-sized arteries or veins in the extremities. It is characterized by occlusive THROMBOSIS and FIBROSIS in the vascular wall leading to digital and limb ISCHEMIA and ulcerations. Thromboangiitis obliterans is highly associated with tobacco smoking.Angioscopes: Endoscopes used for viewing the interior of blood vessels.Angioplasty, Balloon, Coronary: Dilation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.Heme: The color-furnishing portion of hemoglobin. It is found free in tissues and as the prosthetic group in many hemeproteins.Auditory Cortex: The region of the cerebral cortex that receives the auditory radiation from the MEDIAL GENICULATE BODY.Electrodes: Electric conductors through which electric currents enter or leave a medium, whether it be an electrolytic solution, solid, molten mass, gas, or vacuum.Patents as Topic: Exclusive legal rights or privileges applied to inventions, plants, etc.Acoustic Stimulation: Use of sound to elicit a response in the nervous system.Electrodes, Implanted: Surgically placed electric conductors through which ELECTRIC STIMULATION is delivered to or electrical activity is recorded from a specific point inside the body.Cochlear Implants: Electronic hearing devices typically used for patients with normal outer and middle ear function, but defective inner ear function. In the COCHLEA, the hair cells (HAIR CELLS, VESTIBULAR) may be absent or damaged but there are residual nerve fibers. The device electrically stimulates the COCHLEAR NERVE to create sound sensation.Auditory Pathways: NEURAL PATHWAYS and connections within the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, beginning at the hair cells of the ORGAN OF CORTI, continuing along the eighth cranial nerve, and terminating at the AUDITORY CORTEX.Angioplasty, Laser: A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).Angioplasty, Balloon, Laser-Assisted: Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.Lasers, Excimer: Gas lasers with excited dimers (i.e., excimers) as the active medium. The most commonly used are rare gas monohalides (e.g., argon fluoride, xenon chloride). Their principal emission wavelengths are in the ultraviolet range and depend on the monohalide used (e.g., 193 nm for ArF, 308 nm for Xe Cl). These lasers are operated in pulsed and Q-switched modes and used in photoablative decomposition involving actual removal of tissue. (UMDNS, 2005)Atherectomy, Coronary: Percutaneous transluminal procedure for removing atheromatous plaque from the coronary arteries. Both directional (for removing focal atheromas) and rotational (for removing concentric atheromatous plaque) atherectomy devices have been used.Photorefractive Keratectomy: A type of refractive surgery of the CORNEA to correct MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. An EXCIMER LASER is used directly on the surface of the EYE to remove some of the CORNEAL EPITHELIUM thus reshaping the anterior curvature of the cornea.Light: That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum in the visible, ultraviolet, and infrared range.Rhodopsin: A purplish-red, light-sensitive pigment found in RETINAL ROD CELLS of most vertebrates. It is a complex consisting of a molecule of ROD OPSIN and a molecule of 11-cis retinal (RETINALDEHYDE). Rhodopsin exhibits peak absorption wavelength at about 500 nm.Blood Glucose: Glucose in blood.Retina: The ten-layered nervous tissue membrane of the eye. It is continuous with the OPTIC NERVE and receives images of external objects and transmits visual impulses to the brain. Its outer surface is in contact with the CHOROID and the inner surface with the VITREOUS BODY. The outer-most layer is pigmented, whereas the inner nine layers are transparent.Diagnostic Techniques, Cardiovascular: Methods and procedures for the diagnosis of diseases or dysfunction of the cardiovascular system or its organs or demonstration of their physiological processes.Reproducibility of Results: The statistical reproducibility of measurements (often in a clinical context), including the testing of instrumentation or techniques to obtain reproducible results. The concept includes reproducibility of physiological measurements, which may be used to develop rules to assess probability or prognosis, or response to a stimulus; reproducibility of occurrence of a condition; and reproducibility of experimental results.Containment of Biohazards: Provision of physical and biological barriers to the dissemination of potentially hazardous biologically active agents (bacteria, viruses, recombinant DNA, etc.). Physical containment involves the use of special equipment, facilities, and procedures to prevent the escape of the agent. Biological containment includes use of immune personnel and the selection of agents and hosts that will minimize the risk should the agent escape the containment facility.Infusions, Intravenous: The long-term (minutes to hours) administration of a fluid into the vein through venipuncture, either by letting the fluid flow by gravity or by pumping it.Infusion Pumps: Fluid propulsion systems driven mechanically, electrically, or osmotically that are used to inject (or infuse) over time agents into a patient or experimental animal; used routinely in hospitals to maintain a patent intravenous line, to administer antineoplastic agents and other drugs in thromboembolism, heart disease, diabetes mellitus (INSULIN INFUSION SYSTEMS is also available), and other disorders.Illusions: The misinterpretation of a real external, sensory experience.Disposable Equipment: Apparatus, devices, or supplies intended for one-time or temporary use.Infusion Pumps, Implantable: Implanted fluid propulsion systems with self-contained power source for providing long-term controlled-rate delivery of drugs such as chemotherapeutic agents or analgesics. Delivery rate may be externally controlled or osmotically or peristatically controlled with the aid of transcutaneous monitoring.Polyvinyl Chloride: A polyvinyl resin used extensively in the manufacture of plastics, including medical devices, tubing, and other packaging. It is also used as a rubber substitute.Catheters, Indwelling: Catheters designed to be left within an organ or passage for an extended period of time.Catheters: A flexible, tubular device that is used to carry fluids into or from a blood vessel, hollow organ, or body cavity.Catheterization: Use or insertion of a tubular device into a duct, blood vessel, hollow organ, or body cavity for injecting or withdrawing fluids for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. It differs from INTUBATION in that the tube here is used to restore or maintain patency in obstructions.Catheterization, Central Venous: Placement of an intravenous CATHETER in the subclavian, jugular, or other central vein.Cardiac Catheters: Catheters inserted into various locations within the heart for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.Central Venous Catheters: Catheters that are inserted into a large central vein such as a SUBCLAVIAN VEIN or FEMORAL VEIN.Catheterization, Peripheral: Insertion of a catheter into a peripheral artery, vein, or airway for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.Drainage: The removal of fluids or discharges from the body, such as from a wound, sore, or cavity.Surgically-Created Structures: Organs or parts of organs surgically formed from nearby tissue to function as substitutes for diseased or surgically removed tissue.Stereognosis: Perception of shape and form of objects by TOUCH, via tactile stimuli.Laser Coagulation: The use of green light-producing LASERS to stop bleeding. The green light is selectively absorbed by HEMOGLOBIN, thus triggering BLOOD COAGULATION.Lasers, Solid-State: Lasers which use a solid, as opposed to a liquid or gas, as the lasing medium. Common materials used are crystals, such as YAG (YTTRIUM aluminum garnet); alexandrite; and CORUNDUM, doped with a rare earth element such as a NEODYMIUM; ERBIUM; or HOLMIUM. The output is sometimes additionally modified by addition of non-linear optical materials such as potassium titanyl phosphate crystal, which for example is used with neodymium YAG lasers to convert the output light to the visible range.Golgi Apparatus: A stack of flattened vesicles that functions in posttranslational processing and sorting of proteins, receiving them from the rough ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM and directing them to secretory vesicles, LYSOSOMES, or the CELL MEMBRANE. The movement of proteins takes place by transfer vesicles that bud off from the rough endoplasmic reticulum or Golgi apparatus and fuse with the Golgi, lysosomes or cell membrane. (From Glick, Glossary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1990)Microsurgery: The performance of surgical procedures with the aid of a microscope.

Evaluation of disinfection and sterilization of reusable angioscopes with the duck hepatitis B model. (1/11)

PURPOSE: Nosocomial transmission of viral hepatitis and retrovirus infection has been reported. The expected risk is greatest for the hepatitis B virus (HBV). The duck HBV (DHBV) has similar biologic and structural characteristics to HBV and has been adopted as a suitable model for disinfectant testing. METHODS: Angioscopic examination of the external jugular vein was performed on DHBV-infected ducks. After use, the instrument was air dried for 3 minutes. Samples were obtained by flushing the channel with 5 mL of phosphate buffered saline solution. The samples were collected immediately after drying (control), after flushing with 5 mL of water, after glutaraldehyde disinfection for 5, 10, and 20 minutes, and after ethylene oxide gas sterilization. Angioscopes were either precleaned or uncleaned before disinfection/sterilization. Residual infectivity was assessed with inoculation of samples into the peritoneal cavity of day-old ducks (n = 231). RESULTS: DNA analysis results of liver samples showed that all 38 control ducks became infected. The frequency of DHBV infection was reduced to 93% (14 of 15) by flushing the angioscope with 5 mL of sterile water. No transmission occurred after the use of any of the properly precleaned and disinfected/sterilized angioscopes. However, after the use of the uncleaned angioscopes, the transmission rate was 90% (9 of 10) and 70% (7 of 10) after 5 and 10 minutes of contact time, respectively, in 2% glutaraldehyde. Even after the recommended 20 minutes of contact time, there was still 6% (2 of 35) transmission. After ethylene oxide sterilization, two of the recipient ducklings (2 of 35) were infected with DHBV. CONCLUSION: There was no disease transmission after reuse of disposable angioscopes adequately cleaned before disinfection or sterilization. However, if the angioscopes are inadequately cleaned, DHBV can survive despite glutaraldehyde disinfection or ethylene oxide sterilization. This contrasts with previous in vitro and in vivo data with solid surgical instruments. It is postulated that the presence of a narrow lumen or residual protein shielding within the lumen may compromise effective inactivation of hepadnaviruses on angioscopes, with the potential risk for patient-to-patient transmission.  (+info)

Carbon dioxide column angioscopy: a new endovascular imaging technique. (2/11)

A new angioscopic technique with a CO(2) gas medium for prolonged viewing sessions in the carotid artery is described. A stationary column of CO(2) gas, angled 17-30 degrees subhorizontally and buoyed against a balloon catheter, can be safely maintained. During 10-20-min sessions in dogs, endothelia, thrombi, stent filaments, coils, and an intimal flap were visualized. This technique eliminates the need for continuous saline infusion, which has prevented the application of angioscopy in the carotid artery.  (+info)

Prospective randomized study comparing the Teleflex Medical SaphLITE Retractor to the Ethicon CardioVations Clearglide Endoscopic System. (3/11)

BACKGROUND: Several minimally invasive saphenous vein harvesting techniques have been developed to reduce morbidities associated with coronary artery bypass grafting. This prospective, randomized study was designed to compare two commonly used minimally invasive saphenous vein harvesting techniques, the SaphLITE Retractor System (Teleflex Medical) and the Clearglide Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting System (Ethicon CardioVations, Inc.). METHODS: Between January 2003 and March 2004, a total of 200 patients scheduled for primary, nonemergent coronary artery bypass grafting, with or without concomitant procedures were randomized into two groups: SaphLITE (n = 100) and Clearglide (n = 100). Pre-, intra- and postoperative data was collected and subjected to statistical analysis. Randomization provided homogenous groups with respect to preoperative risk factors. RESULTS: Harvest location for the SaphLITE group was thigh (n = 40), lower leg (n = 5) and both lower leg and thigh (n = 55). The location of harvest for the Clearglide group was thigh (n = 3), lower leg (n = 16) and both lower leg and thigh (n = 81). The mean incision length was 3.6 cm (range, 2-6) in the SaphLITE group versus 2.1 cm (range, 1-4) in the Clearglide group (p < 0.05). The total incision length was 12.9 cm versus 8.9 (p < 0.05) in the SaphLITE and Clearglide groups. Conversion to the open technique occurred in 5 SaphLITE patients and 7 Clearglide patients. Intraoperative leg exploration for bleeding occurred in two of the Clearglide patients and none of the SaphLITE patients. Post-operative complications specifically related to minimally invasive harvesting technique, including a two-week post-discharge visit, were not statistically different between the groups. CONCLUSION: The saphenous vein can be safely harvested utilizing the SaphLITE and Clearglide systems. While the Clearglide system allows for fewer incisions (number and length) and less harvest time, these benefits may be outweighed by the increased cost of the Clearglide system compared to the SaphLITE retractor.  (+info)

MRI endoscopy using intrinsically localized probes. (4/11)

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is traditionally performed with fixed externally applied gradient magnetic fields and is hence intrinsically locked to the laboratory frame of reference (FoR). Here a method for high-resolution MRI that employs active, catheter-based, tiny internal probes that utilize the spatial properties of the probe itself for localization is proposed and demonstrated at 3 T. Because these properties are intrinsic to the probe, they move with it, transforming MRI from the laboratory FoR to the FoR of the device itself, analogous to an endoscope. The "MRI endoscope" can utilize loop coils and loopless antennas with modified sensitivity, in combination with adiabatic excitation by the device itself, to restrict the MRI sensitivity to a disk-shaped plane a few mm thick. Excitation with the MRI endoscope limits the eddy currents induced in the sample to an excited volume whose size is orders of magnitude below that excited by a conventional body MRI coil. Heat testing shows maximum local temperature increases of <1 degrees C during MRI, within regulatory guidelines. The method is demonstrated in a kiwifruit, in intact porcine and rabbit aortas, and in an atherosclerotic human iliac artery specimen, with in-plane resolution as small as 80 microm and 1.5-5 mm slice thickness.  (+info)

Imaging of lysophosphatidylcholine in human coronary plaques by color fluorescence angioscopy. (5/11)

Lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) is a proinflammatory and proatherogenic substance, and it plays an important role in the initiation, progression, and destabilization of atherosclerotic plaques. If LPC in the vascular wall is visualized in vivo, the mechanisms of atherosclerosis and the effects of medical and interventional therapies on atherosclerosis can be objectively evaluated. Therefore, this study was carried out to visualize LPC in human coronary plaques using a color fluorescence angioscopy (CFA) system. (1) The fluorescence characteristics of LPC were investigated by color fluorescence microscopy (CFM) using Trypan blue dye (TB) as an indicator. For fluorescence imaging, a combination of a band-pass filter (345 nm) and a band-absorption filter of 420 nm (A imaging), or a combination of a band-pass filter (470 nm) and a band-absorption filter of 520 nm (B imaging) was employed. (2) The fluorescence of LPC in the excised human coronary plaques was investigated by CFA and CFM scanning using the same filters as those in CFM. In the presence of TB, LPC exhibited a red fluorescence in both A and B imaging. This red fluorescence color in both A and B imaging was not observed for the other known major substances that constitute the atherosclerotic plaques. This red fluorescence color in both A and B imaging was detected by CFA in both white and yellow plaques that were classified by conventional angioscopy. This fluorescence color was found to be distributed in a web-like or diffuse configuration by CFM scanning. LPC in the human coronary plaques was successfully visualized by CFA using TB as an indicator.  (+info)

Coronary angioscopy. (8/11)

Coronary angioscopy will not replace angiography as the gold standard for imaging atherosclerotic coronary arteries. However, there may well be a clinical niche for a technology that gives accurate information regarding a specific lesion, if that information can be used to improve the acute or chronic outcome of an interventional procedure. Our experience demonstrates that angioscopy indeed provides this information. Using angioscopy, we now have access to information regarding arterial wall disease that heretofore has been available only at necropsy. In addition, whereas angiography has provided only a 2-dimensional, gray-scale image of the coronary vessels, angioscopy offers a full-color, 3-dimensional perspective of the intracoronary surface morphology. These important lesion-specific details, not reliably available from angiography alone, may ultimately be used to improve patient outcome and to assess risk.  (+info)

Teleflex (NYSE:TFX) yesterday touted results from a real-world study of its UroLift system for treating prostate disease.. The UroLift implant is designed to treat lower urinary tract symptoms from benign prostatic hyperplasia. Wayne, Pa.-based Teleflex paid $1 billion to acquire NeoTract, which developed UroLift, in October 2017.. The 1,413-patient retrospective study was designed to evaluate UroLifts safety and effectiveness in a real-world setting, measuring International Prostate Symptom and Quality of Life scores through two years. Results were published in the Journal of Endourology.. Symptoms improved "significantly" at all follow-up points, with mostly mild to moderate peri-operative adverse events that resolved within four weeks, the company said. There were 165 patients in retention at baseline, with 83% catheter-free at one month and 87% catheter-free at two years, with similar IPSS scores to non-retention patients. Of 73 patients who were previously treated for prostate cancer, mean ...
The final Net Promoter Score of a company strongly depends on a context in which the satisfaction is measured.. Consider an example: If Teleflex Incorporated sends out NPS surveys immediately after purchase, they are tracking their customers initial excitement and the checkout experience.. On the other hand, if they survey their customers a few weeks after the purchase they are also tracking how satisfied their customers are with their products and services over time.. Therefore, comparing the NPS score of Teleflex Incorporated with your own without any further context is not that useful.. What is extremely useful though, is using the NPS methodology to track the satisfaction of your customers over time. Thats where Customer.guru comes in. ...

A wireline connects a current source on the surface to the selected conductive section to produce a reference current in the well. The reference current is injected into the earth and dissipated so that the current produces a reference magnetic field surrounding the well which is unaffected by return currents.

The first device I invented was the Arrow-Trerotola percutaneous thrombolytic device. I invented it when I was still a fellow. We were just getting into dialysis access declotting and at the time, we were doing thrombolysis with urokinase. This procedure was long, resulted in lots of bleeding and did not work that well. That is what prompted me to do something different. We were also doing a lot of biliary work and using stone baskets all the time, so I came up with the idea of spinning around a stone basket really fast. That was the genesis of the device…necessity being the mother of invention.. I developed the first prototype between 1990 and 1991 and then identified the company I was going to work with, which was Arrow (now Teleflex). Between 1992 and 1996, we carried out a large series of pre-clinical animal testing and then started the clinical trial in 1996. The trial enrolled quickly and was completed by the end of that year. We received US FDA approval in 1997 as the third mechanical ...
APAC is estimated to be the fastest-growing market for FEP heat shrink medical tubing. The high growth rate of the market in the region is attributed to the shifting of medical device manufacturing facilities from developed countries to developing countries, especially in India and China. This shift is due to the availability of cheap labor, supportive government policies. The major countries covered for the forecast are China, Japan, and India. India is the fastest-growing market for the FEP heat shrink medical tubing market during the forecast period due to its significant growth in FDI and increased healthcare expenditure..

The function of the Guidance subsystem is to not only generate demands during closed loop tracking, but also perform an initial search to locate the target position. A Stateflow® model is used to control the transfer between these differing modes of operation. Switching between modes is triggered by events generated either in Simulink, or internal to the Stateflow model. Controlling the way the Simulink model then behaves is achieved by changing the value of the variable Mode that is passed out to Simulink. This variable is used to switch between the differing control demands that can be generated. During target search the Stateflow model controls the tracker directly by sending demands to the seeker gimbals (Sigma). Target acquisition is flagged by the tracker once the target lies within the beamwidth of the seeker (Acquire), and after a short delay closed loop guidance starts. Stateflow is an ideal tool for rapidly defining all the operational modes, whether they are for normal operation, or ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Minimally invasive saphenous vein harvest with the SaphLITE system. AU - O-Yurvati, A. H.. AU - Martin, Adriane K.. AU - Peska, Don. PY - 2005/1/1. Y1 - 2005/1/1. N2 - The method of harvesting the greater saphenous vein (GSV) through a long continuous incision is associated with a number of well-documented wound complications and significant postoperative pain. A randomized trial was developed to examine the outcome of standard harvesting techniques versus a minimally invasive harvesting technique using the SaphLITE system. Two hundred elective coronary artery bypass-graft patients were randomly placed into either a traditional saphenous vein harvest group (control) or a minimally invasive SaphLITE harvest group (study). Postoperative wound complications, patient discomfort, and length of follow-up were studied. Wound complications were greater in the control group compared with the study group (P , 0.025). Patient discomfort was markedly reduced in the study group. The ...
The current reversibly switchable fluorescent proteins (RSFPs) can not be multiplexed. Jakobs and colleagues create two RSFPs with novel switching characteristics that can be used simultaneously in fluorescence microscopy experiments using only one detection color. Fluorescent proteins that can be reversibly photoswitched between a fluorescent and a nonfluorescent state are important for innovative microscopy schemes, such as protein tracking1, fluorescence resonance energy transfer imaging2, sub-diffraction resolution microscopy3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and others. However, all available monomeric reversibly switchable fluorescent proteins (RSFPs) have similar properties and switching characteristics10,11,12, thereby limiting their use. Here, we introduce two bright green fluorescent RSFPs, bsDronpa and Padron, generated by extensive mutagenesis of the RSFP Dronpa10, with unique absorption and switching characteristics. Whereas bsDronpa features a broad absorption spectrum extending into the UV, Padron displays a
