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…

SIMPEL: electrode device to safely and precisely stimulate sympathetic nerves to treat asthma, hypertension and other conditions

— Technology Description

A team of researchers at Washington University have developed “SIMPEL”, a small, implanted electrode device designed to manage a variety of conditions (such as asthma, hypertension or neuropathy) by delivering current from a defined, fixed position near specific …
