Philips Seeks Better Understanding of PCI Outcomes Through New Trial
Philips is continuing its investment into percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures through a new study. The company announced the (Distal Evaluation of Functional performance with Intravascular sensors to assess the Narrowing Effect: Guided Physiologic Stenting) (DEFINE GPS) global multicenter study, which has a goal to assess outcomes of PCI procedures guided by integrated iFR and interventional X-ray images. The announcement of the study comes on the heels of Philips making a bid to shed its appliances unit so it can focus on healthcare.  The primary endpoint is target vessel failure (a composite o...

Meet the Brilliant Minds Behind the First ICD
Mirowski: From WWII to Sinai Hospital The story of how Mieczyslaw "Michel" Mirowski ended up in America where he conceived the idea of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is almost as incredible as the invention itself, if not more so. Mirowski was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1924. He grew up among the large Jewish population of Warsaw at that time, but when the Nazis invaded Poland in 1939, 15-year-old Mirowski left his family and fled to Russia with a friend. He would be the only member of his family to survive World War II, according to a 2010Â&nb...

Physicians can then use the images to determine whether a stent is needed. “The CathWorks FFRangio System automatically receives the angiograms in DiCOM format from the C-ARM (X-Ray) systems at the time of angiogram procedure,” Ramin Mousavi, vice president,&...

What Are Pulmonary Embolism Risk Factors?
Discussion Pulmonary embolism (PE) is potentially life-threatening but fortunately rare event especially in the pediatric population. It was first described in children in 1861. PE is likely underreported because of minimal or non-specific clinical symptoms. The incidence is estimated at 0.05-4.2% with the 4.2% based on autopsy reports. It is probably also increasing as more central venous catheters (CVC) are used, and more children are surviving previously poor prognostic diseases. There is a bimodal distribution with cases
