Cardiologists successfully use virtual reality device to treat chronically blocked right coronary artery

Cardiologists successfully use virtual reality device to treat chronically blocked right coronary artery

Virtual reality (VR) has potential to revolutionize some aspects of medicine and healthcare. Several medical specialties are already using it to train physicians and assist diagnosis and it also has potential for treatment. A group of cardiologists has now successfully used a VR device to guide the opening up (revascularization) of a chronically blocked right coronary artery. [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]
Anti-coagulant medications quickly resolve blood clots that could impair valve motion

Anti-coagulant medications quickly resolve blood clots that could impair valve motion

Heart valve replacements made from tissue (bioprosthetic valves) have long been thought to be spared the complication of blood clot formation. Researchers have now found that about 15 percent of all bioprosthetic aortic heart valve patients develop blood clots on the leaflets affecting valve opening, regardless of whether the patient received the new valve via open-heart surgery or a minimally-invasive catheter procedure, a new study from the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute shows.
