Vascular expander V E-12 Concept June 1992
Devise to assist in the surgical ‘anastomosis’ or joining together of two tubular structures.
The VE – 12 is a concept surgical tool to aid in connecting blood vessels or other tubular body structures. The devise is a disposable, inexpensive tool that will be inserted into one sectioned tube e.g. intestine. The other sectional intestine is slipped over the V E – 12 and positioned. A simple grip action expands the device to facilitate stabilized suturing. Upon completion of the suturing the devise is contracted and removed leaving a small incision to close.
Acoustic Physical Diagnostic System
Ultra sensitive microphones attached to the site of an injury or condition, pick up very subtle sounds, displaying the analyzed sound onto a computer screen. The sound analysis profile from a patient is used to diagnose joint or tendon problems, arthritis, bone or circulatory conditions.
This concept could assist in remote diagnosis for many medical conditions. A central sound library could assemble recordings that would be available for comparison.
