Optical Tissue Identification for Myocardial Architecture

2019-07-18 10:31:16 | BioPortfolio


The goal of this study is to test the hypothesis that fiberoptic confocal microscopy (FCM) imaging during repair of common congenital heart defects is a useful adjunct for avoidance of conduction abnormalities.


This is an interventional randomized controlled study to investigate the use of fiberoptic confocal microscopy (FCM) imaging for avoidance of conduction abnormalities during repair of common congenital heart defects. Study results will be compared to a cohort of similar surgical patients following standard surgical procedures where FCM was not used. We will analyze pre-and postoperative ECGs to identify conduction abnormalities.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia characterized by an extremely rapid, hemodynamically unstable ventricular tachycardia (150-300 beats/min) with a large oscillating sine-wave appearance. If untreated, ventricular flutter typically progresses to VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION.

Isoforms of MYOSIN TYPE II, specifically found in the ventricular muscle of the HEART. Defects in the genes encoding ventricular myosins result in FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY.

An abnormally rapid ventricular rhythm usually in excess of 150 beats per minute. It is generated within the ventricle below the BUNDLE OF HIS, either as autonomic impulse formation or reentrant impulse conduction. Depending on the etiology, onset of ventricular tachycardia can be paroxysmal (sudden) or nonparoxysmal, its wide QRS complexes can be uniform or polymorphic, and the ventricular beating may be independent of the atrial beating (AV dissociation).

Industrial chemicals which have become widespread environmental pollutants. Each aroclor is a mixture of chlorinated biphenyls (1200 series) or chlorinated terphenyls (5400 series) or a combination of both (4400 series).

A congenital cardiomyopathy that is characterized by infiltration of adipose and fibrous tissue into the RIGHT VENTRICLE wall and loss of myocardial cells. Primary injuries usually are at the free wall of right ventricular and right atria resulting in ventricular and supraventricular arrhythmias.
