SPARTA – A Stent for Fusiform Aneurysms that Prevents Endoleaks

— Background: Popliteal artery aneurysms are the most prevalent type of peripheral aneurysms and are treated surgically to prevent rupture. Currently, surgical options include open surgery or endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). EVAR is less invasive than open surgery, resulting in shorter hospital st…

“Gemini” connector device to prevent peripheral venous catheters from dislodging and leaking

— Technology Description

A team of researchers at Washington University in St. Louis have developed the patented “Gemini” breakaway connector to turn peripheral venous catheter (PVC) fluid flow on and off without leaking. In addition, this easy-to-use device is designed to prevent PVC di…

String Theory: Neurovascular Catheter System with 2-in-1 Variable Rigidity

— An interdisciplinary team at Washington University has developed an easy-to-use neurovascular catheter system designed to reduce surgery time and prevent herniation during transradial interventions for stroke, aneurysms and other conditions. This device, called “String Theory”, can be sw…

Isochoric Actuator

— Device used to maintain a constant volume within an isolated treatment zone while exchanging its internal volume. Current aspiration and lytic delivery thrombectomy devices do not have isolated treatment zone. Suction could result in collapse or the lysis could result in the distension of the vein wall. Device allows for tandem infusion and suction of fluids from this treatment zone while ensuring that the volume within this treatment zone remains constant.
