Nido Surgical seeks $1.5m for next-gen cardiac surgery tools

del Nido Stealthy Nido Surgical took the 1st steps toward raising a hoped-for $1.5 million, pulling in $105,000 from 3 unnamed investors in a debt-and-options round, according to a regulatory filing. Nido Surgical, named for co-founder and cardiac surgery chief at Boston Children’s Hospital Dr. Pedro del Nido, is developing minimally invasive instruments for image-guided, beating-heart surgery, according to the LinkedIn profile of co-founder, president &CEO Gerald Moore. The company was formed to commercialize technology created by del Nido and his team at Children’s over the past 10 years, according to Moore’s profile. Nido Surgical’s SEC filing also lists as a manager Boston Children’s Dr. Nikolay Vasilyev, a cardiac surgery researcher focused on instruments and device design for valve interventions and septal defects closure, new imaging techniques, computer modeling and simulation, according to the hospital’s website.

ConclusionsPAB can be used in patients with AVSD without compromising AVV function. Most patients with bAVSD progress to biventricular repair, albeit with a high rate of AVV reoperation. Patients with uAVSD who undergo PAB have similar outcomes to the overall uAVSD population.

Rationale: Ventricular septal defects are the most common congenital heart defect in children. As this method avoids sternotomy, the post-procedural morbidity is lower. However, transcatheter closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defects are still associated with complications such as arrhythmia (particularly, Atrioventricular Block), device embolization, atrioventricularvalve and/or aortic valves regurgitation, residual shunts. Some complications can be life threatening and require urgent surgical intervention. Patient concerns: An 32-months-old boy was admitted for a significant precordial systolic murmur. Th...

Locations of vegetations in endocarditis depends on direction of the blood flow jet which causes jet lesions at the site which it impinges, causing damage to the endothelium. It is at this region that small thrombi can form and become a nidus for vegetations. In ventricular septal defect (VSD), there is a left to right jet from the left ventricle to right ventricle. The smaller the size of the VSD, higher the pressure gradient between the two ventricles and greater the velocity of the jet and chance for jet lesion. For the same reason, endocarditis is more common in small VSD and rare in large VSD. When there is a jet, th...

Abstract The indications for catheter-based structural and electrophysiological procedures have recently expanded to more complex scenarios, in which an accurate definition of the variable individual cardiac anatomy is key to obtain optimal results. Intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) is a unique imaging modality able to provide high-resolution real-time visualization of cardiac structures, continuous monitoring of catheter location within the heart, and early recognition of procedural complications, such as pericardial effusion or thrombus formation. Additional benefits are excellent patient tolerance, reduction ...

Conclusions: The majority of isolated bicuspid aortic valve cases without aortic stenosis did not require surgical intervention. Outcomes for cases requiring repair/replacement were relatively benign.

We reported a 70-year-old man with isolated IAA diagnosed using computed tomography angiography (CTA) without previous intervention. Patient concerns: The patient presented with edema of the lower extremities and productive cough. Diagnoses: CTA displayed an interruption of the aortic arch distal to the left common carotid artery (type B) and extensive collateralization. Interventions: The patient refused surgery and underwent conservative therapy with follow-up examinations because of the extensive collateral vascularization. Outcomes: The patient is still currently undergoing conservative therapy with follow-...

Authors: Kenny D Abstract Congenital heart interventions are now replacing surgical palliation and correction in an evolving number of congenital heart defects. Right ventricular outflow tract and ductus arteriosus stenting have demonstrated favorable outcomes compared to surgical systemic to pulmonary artery shunting, and it is likely surgical pulmonary valve replacement will become an uncommon procedure within the next decade, mirroring current practices in the treatment of atrial septal defects. Challenges remain, including the lack of device design focused on smaller infants and the inevitable consequences of s...
