Robotic Assisted MRI-Guided Interventional Interstitial MR Guided Focused Ultrasound Ablation in a Swine Model.

Ablative lesions are current treatments for epilepsy and brain tumors. Interstitial magnetic resonance (MR) guided focused ultrasound (iMRgFUS) may be an alternate ablation technique which limits ther...

Bedside ultrasound diagnosis of a malpositioned central venous catheter: A case report.

Central venous catheter (CVC) placement is commonly performed in intensive care unit. And CVC placement is associated with risks including CVC malposition, pneumothorax. Many of the previously reporte...

Misplaced Foley catheter in ureter in a female with neurogenic bladder: a rare complication report.

Accidental placement of Foley catheter in ureter is a rare phenomenon. It is more common in females with neurogenic bladder who have hypocontractile bladder or there can be iatrogenic placement during...

First clinical use of novel ablation catheter incorporating local impedance data.

Successful catheter ablation is limited by both poor spatial resolution of abnormal local signals and inability to deliver an effective lesion due to poor tissue contact. We report first worldwide use...

Electroanatomic mapping-guided pediatric catheter ablation with limited/zero fluoroscopy.

The use of fluoroscopy in pediatric catheter ablation has decreased because of mapping systems. In this study, we present the efficiency and reliability of the electroanatomic mapping system in nonflu...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.

Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).

Infections resulting from the use of catheters. Proper aseptic technique, site of catheter placement, material composition, and virulence of the organism are all factors that can influence possible infection.

Removal of tissue with electrical current delivered via electrodes positioned at the distal end of a catheter. Energy sources are commonly direct current (DC-shock) or alternating current at radiofrequencies (usually 750 kHz). The technique is used most often to ablate the AV junction and/or accessory pathways in order to interrupt AV conduction and produce AV block in the treatment of various tachyarrhythmias.

Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.
