Danny ’s journey to a biventricular heart
The first hint that something wasn’t quite right with Danny Sanchez-Garcia’s heart came at his mom’s six-month prenatal visit. “There was a little blip on the ultrasound, but then it was gone on the next one, so they didn’t think it was anything and I didn’t worry any more about it,” says Danny’s mom, Cynthia. Cynthia was overjoyed when Danny was born at her local hospital seeming perfectly healthy. But as the hospital staff monitored Danny overnight, they noticed his oxygen level was lower than normal and decided to run more tests. His doctors believed the tests pointed to a...

EBR Systems pulls in $50m for wireless pacer
EBR Systems said yesterday that it raised $50 million to back a clinical trial for the wireless cardiac pacemaker it’s developing after winning CE Mark approval for a second-generation wireless transmitter. EBR’s device, which it calls wireless stimulation endocardially or Wise, uses a subcutaneous generator to wirelessly deliver ultrasound energy to a “pellet” implanted in the right ventricle, which it uses to synchronize the left and right ventricles. The system is designed to eliminate the need for a left ventricular lead by allowing the operating physician to place the stimulation “pe...

Heart ’s pumping function is not an indicator of heart failure survival rates
FINDINGSContrary to popular practice, a measure of the heart ’s pumping function known as “left ventricular ejection fraction” is not associated with the long-term outcomes of hospitalized heart failure patients, a UCLA-led study of Medicare patients has found. Hospitalized heart failure patients in all age groups within the study and with all levels of ejection fraction had significantly lower rates of survival after five years and a higher risk of re-hospitalization than people in the United States without heart failure. Better treatments for heart failure and new ways of predicting patient outcomes are...

Rivanna tackles epidural failure rates with its hand-held imaging device
When they were students in the biomedical engineering department at the University of Virginia, Will Mauldin and Kevin Owen found a problem that needed solving – anesthesiologists often fail to successfully place an epidural on their first try. It’s a problem that costs the medical system more than $1.5 billion each year, according to Rivanna Medical. “The failure rates are between 30 – 80% depending on the type of patient and the user’s skill. So, that sounded very high,” Mauldin told Drug Delivery Business News. “Meanwhile, ultrasound had basically taken over in the ane...
