Live-OP auf der TCT führt individuelle Simulationsprobe mit PRS vor

CLEVELAND, December 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Das Simbionix PROcedure™ Rehearsal Studio (PRS) wurde auf die Probe gestellt, als Barry T. Katzen, MD, FACR, FACC, FSIR, Gründer/Medizinischer Leiter des Baptist Cardiac and Vascular Institute die Technologie für einen präoperativen Plan und eine Probe für eine Live-OP nutzte, die er anlässlich der 2012 TCT Conference durchführen würde. Nach der Probe, die im Vorfeld der Operation durchgeführt wurde, führte Dr. Katzen die endovaskuläre Aneurysmareparatur (EVAR) live auf der TCT durch. Diese Veranstaltung mit dem Titel "Future Techniques for Endovascular Therapy" (Zukünftige Techniken für Endovaskulartherapie) diente der Vorführung neuer Techniken für mögliche Verbesserungen zu einer Reihe an Produkten im Bereich der Endovaskulartherapie.

Die Ausbildungssitzung umfasste die präoperative Beurteilung der Anatomie des Patienten, die Auswahl von Werkzeugen für das EVAR-Verfahren und auch den Einsatz einer Gore C3 Excluder-Endoprothese. Der Patient wies eine anspruchsvolle Anatomie mit viel Iliacaltortuosität und einem ziemlich großen Durchflußlumen auf, was für die Ärzte eine technische Herausforderung darstellte.  

Die Computertomografie (CT) des Patienten wurde in das PRS heruntergeladen. So konnte Dr. Katzen ein patientenspezifisches, virtuelles 3D-Anatomiemodell erstellen. Dr. Katzen verwendete dieses, um den endovaskulären Eingriff zu planen. Dazu gehören die geeignete Strategie für den Zugang, die Auswahl von Werkzeugen, Führungsdrähten, Kathetern, der Endoprothese sowie die Wahl der effektiven Durchleuchtung.

Anlässlich der TCT führte Dr. Katzen das Ausbildungsvideo vor und führte im Anschluss daran die eigentliche Operation an dem Patienten durch, die zuvor geprobt worden war. Die Live-OP replizierte den Probedurchlauf. http://simbionix.com/simbionix_videos/tct-2012-evar-live-case-video/

"Der Patient präsentierte mehrere anatomische Schwierigkeiten, die der Simulator realistisch wiedergegeben hat", so Dr. Katzen.

"Als Ergebnis der PRS-Simulation bewerteten wir unsere Messungen und modifizierten die rechte Gliedmaßen-Seite. Wir überprüften alles, begannen von vorne und berechneten alles neu und stellten so im Grunde die richtige Gliedmaßen-Größe ein. Wir waren davon überzeugt, dass es funktionieren würde, und das hat es auch", sagte Dr. Katzen. "Die Simulation hat ein Endoleak vom Typ Ib in der rechten Extremität prognostiziert, die wir mit einem Ballon korrigierten und so kein weiteres Transplantat mehr benötigten."

"Ich finde den Probenteil der Simulation höchst interessant", sagte Dr. Katzen. "Für Chirurgen und Interventionalisten ist das großartig, denn es führt einfach zu besseren Ergebnissen."

The WebRTC Summit New York, to be held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, announces that its Call for Papers is now open. Topics include all aspects of improving IT delivery by eliminating waste through automated business models leveraging cloud technologies. WebRTC Summit is co-located with 20th International Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo. WebRTC is the future of browser-to-browser communications, and continues to make inroads into the traditional, difficult, plug-in web co...
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their backend AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT - especially in the connected home and office. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Kocher, founder and managing director of Grey Heron, explained how Amazon is extending its reach to become a major force in IoT by building on its dominant cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strat...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands. What's more of a mystery is how to balance innovation on a fresh platform built from scratch with the legacy tech stack, product suite and customers that continue to serve as the business' foundation. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it. Managing data includes protecting it, indexing and classifying it for true, long-term management, compliance and E-Discovery.

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
