Abstract Currently available master-slave manipulators cannot recognize the elasticity of organs or tissues. The aim of this study was to examine whether a newly developed haptic forceps using a linear motor could measure the elasticity of living organs using an animal model. We measured the...
Abstract Nanotechnology offers promising perspectives in biomedical research as well as in clinical practice. To cover some of the latest nanotechnology trends in regenerative medicine, this review will focus on the use of nanomaterials for tissue engineering and cell therapy. Nanofibrous...
Abstract This review based on the Wickham lecture given by AC at the 2009 SMIT meeting in Sinaia outlines the progress made in nano-technology for healthcare. It describes in brief the nature of nano-materials and their unique properties which accounts for the significant research both in...
Abstract This paper presents real-time MRI-based control of a ferromagnetic microcapsule for endovascular navigation. The concept was studied for future development of microdevices designed to perform minimally invasive interventions in remote sites accessible through the human cardiovascular...
Abstract The possibility of intervening in utero on certain cardiac malformations with the intent to prevent secondary major alterations in structure and function is becoming a reality. Central to progress in this area is the development of instrumentation specifically designed for minimally...
Abstract New developments in science, technologies and applications are blurring the boundaries between information and communications technology (ICT), micro-nano systems and life sciences, e.g. through miniaturisation and the ability to manipulate matter at the atomic scale and to interface...
Abstract Hemodynamic depression (HD) is a frequent complication related to carotid endartherectomy or carotid artery stenting (CAS), often not well tolerated in patients with coronary artery disease. The purpose of this study is to assess whether CAS without angioplasty is beneficial in patients...
