MD+DI has taken a hard look at the private medtech sector and developed this list of 20 private companies we will be paying particularly close attention to in the new year. It was not an easy task. There are so many interesting private companies in the industry right now that we started with a much longer list and whittled it down to the 20 companies that stood out most to us. So without further ado, here are the 20 companies that made the cut: 4C Medical is developing the AltaValve, a transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) platform designed to address mitr...

VENTRICULAR ASSIST DEVICES (VADs) are an effective modality as destination therapy or as a bridge to cardiac transplantation for patients with end-stage heart failure.1,2 However, VAD implantatation is associated with significant risk for adverse events, including, but not limited to, perioperative hemorrage, air embolism, right ventricular failure, infection, thromboembolism, and device failure.3 Additionally, patients with VADs may develop acute and/or chronic pain refractory to traditional medical management at the VAD driveline site or in the vicinity of the abdominal pocket where a particular device such as a HeartMat...

Conclusion Hyperexcitability of T5 and T6 sympathetic preganglionic fibers appears to be the main etiology of LPR. SNEPI can reduce LES relaxation and improve blood flow to the mucosa, thereby increasing the stability of the vagus reflex and laryngopharyngeal mucosal defense factors. To the best of our knowledge, this case represents the first report of a patient with LPR refractory to PPIs who was successfully treated with SNEPI alone. SNEPI can be considered as an alternative to anti-reflux procedures. References 1. Vakil N, van Zanten SV, Kahrilas P, et al. Global Consensus Group. The Montreal definition and classificat...

This study teaches us that poor wound healing and wrinkling and sagging that occur in aging skin share similar mechanisms." Reduced cell cohesiveness of outgrowths from eccrine sweat glands delays wound closure in elderly skin Human skin heals more slowly in aged vs. young adults, but the mechanism for this delay is unclear. In humans, eccrine sweat glands (ESGs) and hair follicles underlying wounds generate cohesive keratinocyte outgrowths that expand to form the new epidermis. Our results confirm that the outgrowth of cells from ESGs is a major feature of repair in young skin. Strikingly, in aged s...
