TRILUMINATE Pivotal Study for Abbott’s TriClip device

Posted on Updated on

According to Professor Georg Nickenig, lead investigator of the study and chair of Internal Medicine and Polyclinic II at the University of Bonn, Germany, presented findings. Data show a TR reduction of at least one grade in 87 percent of patients with symptomatic or greater TR and improvements in quality-of-life, “The TriClip is a version of the MitraClip used for transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) to resolve mitral regurgitation. A post hoc registry analysis of MitraClip use for TR has indicated TR reduction and improved clinical outcomes out to one year. Treatment for TR is currently limited to the use of diuretics and high-risk surgical procedures. Nickenig said minimally invasive catheter-based procedures (such as TriClip) may reduce TR with low procedural risk.”

3D Printing For Cardiology

Posted on Updated on

According to Dee Dee Wang, M.D., director, structural heart imaging at Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit,” explains how her center uses 3-D printing and computer-aided design (CAD) software to improve patient outcomes. She spoke to DAIC at the 2017 Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) annual meeting. ‘The Use of 3-D Printing in Cardiology’ and “Henry Ford Hospital Study Shows 3-D Imaging Improves Fixing Broken Hearts.”

According to Rob Beanlands, M.D., FASNC, 2019 American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) president, shares a couple of trends he sees in cardiac nuclear imaging. He is the Vered Chair and division head of cardiology and director of the National Cardiac PET Centre at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, Canada. He said,” overall trends he sees in nuclear cardiology include the use of better myocardial reserve quantification so it is clear whether revascularization would help patients. Beanlands also said there is increasing interest in positron emission tomography (PET) imaging because of its superior image quality and increasing access to PET radiotracers. New tracers on the horizon will also increase the image quality and flexibility of PET to accommodate exercise stress.”

A family permanently lives in a 3D-printed home

Posted on Updated on

A family permanently lives in a 3D-printed home, take a look at the ‘Yhnova project’ in France, according to Ville de Nantes, “Nantes has provided the site for a house, Yhnova Batiprint3D™, built in just a few days, thanks to a 3D printer. This innovation, of the University of Nantes, was made possible thanks to the pooling of know-how of different partners: scientists, industrialists, public and socio-economic actors.”

Do they keep the foam once the concrete is dry? I did not understand that part. Thanks in advance.
