Chitosan hydrogel derivatives as a coating agent with broad spectrum of antimicrobial activities
In order to achieve hydrogel formation, quaternized chitosan can be grafted with polymerizable groups, especially photocrosslinkable groups, such as methacrylates, PEG derivatives and be converted into hydrogels through a thermal or UV polymerization process. Hydrogels are hydrated cross-linked polymeric systems that contain water in an equilibrium state forming cushion water shield....

Smart expandable member for medical applications
Devices and methods for assessing the compliance of vessel lumens and hollow portions of organs are described. The devices and methods are particularly adapted for determining the compliance of the native heart valves to facilitate the later implantation of a prosthetic heart valve. The devices are typically catheter-based having an expandable...

Methods and apparatuses for deploying minimally-invasive heart valves
A method for replacing native valve function of a diseased aortic valve in a patient is provided. The method comprises: (a) guiding a catheter system having a balloon through the vasculature of the patient; (b) guiding an artificial heart valve assembly through the vasculature of the patient; (c) while the catheter...
