MCG researchers explore how neurofibromatosis puts young patients at risk for cardiovascular disease

MCG researchers explore how neurofibromatosis puts young patients at risk for cardiovascular disease

It's a fairly common genetic condition that can surface as a series of dark skin spots and result in a host of maladies from tumors to premature cardiovascular disease. Medical College of Georgia researchers hope their studies of how neurofibromatosis 1, or NF1, can dangerously thicken or thin blood vessel walls will one day help physicians better identify and treat these young patients at cardiovascular risk.

Augmented microscopy may allow neurosurgeons to clearly distinguish cancerous from healthy tissue

Augmented microscopy may allow neurosurgeons to clearly distinguish cancerous from healthy tissue

Researchers at the University of Arizona have invented a device that for the first time allows neurosurgeons, who use microscopes extensively while operating, to see blood flowing inside vessels and more clearly distinguish cancerous from healthy tissue under the microscope. [More]
ReDy receives CE clearance for third-generation Renal Denervation System

ReDy receives CE clearance for third-generation Renal Denervation System

Renal Dynamics' third-generation Renal Denervation System received CE clearance and is now commercially available in Europe for treatment of Resistant Hypertension. The ReDy Renal Denervation System is based on a novel multi-electrode ablation technology that delivers a pre-determined RF ablation set with a single positioning. [More]
Patients who take cholesterol medications before endovascular surgery experience better outcomes

Patients who take cholesterol medications before endovascular surgery experience better outcomes

Rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm is one of the most dramatic medical emergencies a person can face. It usually strikes without warning, killing approximately 50 percent of those who experience it before they reach a hospital. Of those who do get to a health facility alive, only about 50 percent survive. [More]

Bolton Medical reports first commercial implant of TREO Abdominal Stent-Graft System

Bolton Medical, a subsidiary of the WerfenLife Company, announced the first commercial implant of the TREO Abdominal Stent-Graft System by Professor Giovanni Torsello, MD, Director of the Center for Vascular and Endovascular Surgery at St. Franciscus Hospital Muenster in Munster, Germany. [More]
New approach helps create virtual models for treating abdominal aortic aneurysms

New approach helps create virtual models for treating abdominal aortic aneurysms

Virtual models can be created in the angiography room thanks to an approach developed by researchers at the University of Montreal Hospital Research Centre and the university's departments of radiology, radiation oncology, and nuclear medicine. The latest advances were presented by Dr. Gilles Soulez at the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Society of Europe conference on September 27, 2015. [More]

Pie Medical Imaging receives 2015 European Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Leadership

Based on its recent analysis of the cardiovascular image management market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Pie Medical Imaging (PMI) with the 2015 European Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Leadership. [More]
Treatment score aids decision-making in unruptured intracranial aneurysm management

Treatment score aids decision-making in unruptured intracranial aneurysm management

Researchers have developed an unruptured intracranial aneurysm treatment score model that arms clinicians with consensus from a group of specialists on how to manage individuals with the condition. [More]
Codman Neuro introduces new platform of embolic coils for treatment of brain aneurysms

Codman Neuro introduces new platform of embolic coils for treatment of brain aneurysms

Codman Neuro, part of DePuy Synthes Companies of Johnson & Johnson, has introduced a new platform of embolic coils for the treatment of brain aneurysms, supported by an enhanced detachment system designed to improve microcatheter stability and provide an optimized detachment zone for coils. [More]
Less invasive endovascular aortic repair benefits most patients, provides quick recovery

Less invasive endovascular aortic repair benefits most patients, provides quick recovery

Each year, nearly 40,000 Americans undergo elective surgery to repair an abdominal aortic aneurysm with the goal of preventing a life-threatening rupture of this potentially dangerous cardiovascular condition. [More]
Yale researchers provide genetically personalized care for patients with thoracic aortic aneurysms

Yale researchers provide genetically personalized care for patients with thoracic aortic aneurysms

Researchers at the Aortic Institute at Yale have tested the genomes of more than 100 patients with thoracic aortic aneurysms, a potentially lethal condition, and provided genetically personalized care. Their work will also lead to the development of a "dictionary" of genes specific to the disease, according to researchers. [More]
NIH awards $1.8 million grant for brain imaging technique

NIH awards $1.8 million grant for brain imaging technique

A researcher at the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin has received a four-year, $1.8 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to develop a new technique for imaging blood flow across the surface of the brain that could help patients undergoing neurosurgery.

Men benefit from ultrasound screening for abdominal aortic aneurysms

Men benefit from ultrasound screening for abdominal aortic aneurysms

Men benefit from one-time screening for abdominal aortic aneurysms via ultrasound. Studies provide proof that their risk of dying is reduced, the abdominal aorta ruptures less often, and emergency surgery can be avoided more often. Far fewer data are available for women and they show no relevant differences between the groups investigated. [More]
Researchers discover genetic mutation responsible for thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection

Researchers discover genetic mutation responsible for thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection

Thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection (TAAD), an enlargement or tearing of the walls of the aorta in the chest, is, together with abdominal aortic aneurysms, responsible for about 2% of all deaths in Western countries. The aorta is the largest artery in the body, and carries blood from the heart. About one out of every five patients with TAAD has a family member with the same disorder, therefore indicating a genetic cause. [More]

UT Southwestern testing Vivistim System device in stroke patients

UT Southwestern Medical Center will be one of three national sites to pioneer U.S. testing for an implant device that stimulates the vagus nerve in stroke patients to see whether it can help restore lost arm function. [More]
Pocket-sized ultrasound device reduce need for further testing in inpatient and outpatient settings

Pocket-sized ultrasound device reduce need for further testing in inpatient and outpatient settings

Results from a study presented today at The International Liver Congress 2015 demonstrate that the use of a pocket-sized ultrasound device (PUD) helps to reduce the need for further testing in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. [More]
