Novel 3D-Printed Flexible Polymer Esophagus Stent for Esophageal Cancer
More than 17,000 patients are diagnosed with esophageal cancer each year and it ranks sixth among all cancers in mortality. Many who are diagnosed have an occluded esophagus and utilize a self-expanding metal stent (SEMS) for drinking and feeding. However, SEMS stents can cause chest pain, restenosis, and can even migrate into the stomach. This te...

System and Method for Guiding a Multi-Pole Sensor Catheter to Locate Cardiac Arrhythmia Sources
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is an abnormal and irregular rhythm of the heart, where the electrical signals are generated erratically. The disorder affects roughly 34 million people worldwide. Current methods employed to detect AF sources in the heart utilize a 64-pole catheter, which has limitations in the overall AF detection strategy. This inventio...

System and Method for Localizing Cardiac Arrhythmia Sources Using Multi-Pole Sensors
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of heart arrhythmia, which is when the heart beats too slowly, too fast, or in an irregular way. AF can be treated through a procedure known as ablation, which destroys a small area of heart tissue that is the source of the irregular heartbeats. One of the challenges associated with ablation is that ...
