nView medical has developed a surgical scanner that provides instant 3D imaging during surgery. Our core technology is A.I. image creation. We provides faster and more accurate imaging information to surgeons by merging real-time data gathered during surgery based on x-rays with prior information. This technology enables to reduce the image acquisition time and the […]
Clubfoot is a 3-dimensional (3D) deformity of the foot and the most common skeletal deformity in children with an incidence of 1-2/1000 births. Without treatment, children develop lifelong difficulties walking and those in low and middle income nations endure abuse and neglect. Under the current standard of care, pediatric orthopedic surgeons use the Ponseti method […]
Auctus Surgical has begun development on a dynamic vertebral body tethering system for non-fusion growth modulation in pediatric scoliosis patients. The system consists of a flexible tether affixed to the convex side of a scoliotic spine. The tether may be tensioned operatively to provide some correction, while the remainder of the correction occurs as the […]
Not surprisingly, adolescents with scoliosis are incredibly active on social media platforms and the internet searching for support, advice and access to the latest medical technology available. ApiFix’s game-changing treatment for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis has already made its way to the pages of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and the like and patient demand is expected to […]
AMB Surgical’s FLYTE is the next generation growing rod implant for the treatment of complex pediatric spine deformities. FLYTE is a sophisticated electro-mechanical, software activated device to provide real-time biomechanical feedback to guide treatment allowing surgeons to perform accurate, non-surgical skeletal adjustments. The results in are expected to reduce costs, surgical risks and improved patient […]
Cardiac arrhythmias can affect the quality of life and lead to morbidity and mortality in pediatric patients. Prompt diagnosis and appropriate early management can potentially prevent life threatening events, restore functional capacity, and improve quality of life for the child and family. The Carnation Ambulatory Monitor (CAM) is the first P-wave centric ECG patch monitor, […]
In pediatric cardiovascular surgery, no commercially available vascular conduit is capable of growing with the patient following implantation. This inability to grow with the patient is particularly relevant for newborns and young children because additional surgeries are required to replace the implanted conduit. In order to address this issue, PECA Labs has developed a novel […]
Our proposed project is for execution of pilot studies using the Endothelial Cell Culture Model (ECCM) developed by Dr. Palaniappan Sethu (Associate Professor of Medicine and Biomedical Engineering, University of Alabama-Birmingham (UAB)) and Dr. Guruprasad Giridharan (Professor, Associate Chair of Bio-Engineering, University of Louisville). Studies will be conducted at UAB to evaluate the acute response […]
Therapeutic options for heart failure (HF) in the pediatric population are severely limited. Pediatric patients requiring mechanical circulatory support (MCS) have very high mortality and adverse event rates. Clinicians currently depend on the Berlin Heart EXCOR pediatric device, which severely limits ambulation and precludes hospital discharge, or adult MCS devices (used off-label), which require a […]
Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common type of birth defect, and one of the leading causes of child mortality in the developed world. One of the most vexing problems that children with CHD face is the poor durability of replacement heart valves, with the pulmonary valve being the most commonly replaced heart valve […]
