Advancements in Extrusion to Be Highlighted at MD & amp;M East
Microspec will be bringing samples of its intermittent extrusion technology to the MD&M East show in New York June 11-13, among other innovations. Intermittent extrusion means that, in the length of one tube, the material changes completely from one material to another. “Typically it’s going from hard to soft or soft to hard,” said Timothy Steele, founder and CEO of Microspec, in an interview with MD&DI. Intermittent extrusion is used in products such as catheters, especially something like PICC lines, which have proximal ends that are hooked up to multilumen tu...

Physician ’s Device Puts a New Spin on Ultrasound
Five years ago, Steven Tropello, M.D., a critical care and emergency medicine physician, became frustrated with the limitations he had in placing feeding tubes in patients. Tropello saw numerous patients needing a simple G-tube insertion or replacement, who wound up staying multiple days in the hospital waiting for a specialist and an operating room. Tropello’s frustration led to the physician developing the Point-of-care Ultrasound Magnet Aligned (PUMA-G) System platform, a device that enables ultrasound-based placement of percutaneous gastrostomy feeding tubes.

Monarch Becomes the 1st FDA-Cleared Device for ADHD
The Monarch external Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation (eTNS) System made history last week after it became the first device to win a nod from FDA to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It should be noted the technology has had CE mark since 2015. Monarch was developed by NeuroSigma and is indicated to help treat 7 to 12-year-olds suffering from ADHD. What makes this de novo clearance from FDA so significant is that typically pharmaceutical solutions are used to treat patients suffering from the neurological disorder. Monarch is about the size of a cellphone. The device generates a low-level electrical pulse ...

Late Pregnancy Ultrasounds Could Prevent Emergency C-Sections
BOSTON (CBS) — A new study from the University of Cambridge finds late pregnancy ultrasounds could prevent many emergency C-sections and even prevent some infant deaths. In 3-4% of pregnancies, babies fail to flip head down, leading to what’s called a breech presentation. Trying to deliver a baby feet or buttocks first can lead to serious complications for the baby, including death. But sometimes it’s not known that a baby is breech until delivery. At 36 weeks, it is still possible for a doctor to try to coax the baby head down by applying pressure to the abdomen, and if that doesn’t work, a routine...
