Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/15/88 - 06/14/89

This proposed study is designed to develop and evaluate a method of epithelizing, in vitro, a compound hollow viscus prosthesis consisting of an outer rigid porus material and a biodegradable inner layer. Healing of the prosthesis in the wall of the urinary bladder will be evaluated in dogs. The prosthesis will be evaluated for urine leakage, ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/07/87 - 03/31/88

The proposed study is designed to develop and evaluate a method of replacing the trachea with a compound prosthesis that will be epithelized at the time of implantation by tissue culture of buccal mucosa or a free graft of tracheal mucosa. Healing of the cervical trachea to two types of prosthesis will be evaluated in dogs. Both types will hav...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/87 - 12/31/89

A multimonitor endotracheal tube with sensors for ECG, temperature, heart sounds, and breath sounds was developed in Phase I studies and feasibility clearly demonstrated in dog experiments. ECG signals, heart and breath sounds, and temperature measured from a single anatomic site - the teachea - compared favorably with conventional monitors - s...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 12/01/86 - 08/31/88

A new approach to therapy of myocardial ischemia involves the perfusion of oxygenated blood via the venous side of the heart through the coronary sinus and large cardiac veins. Retrovenous diastolic myocardial perfusion (RVDP) has the potential for maintaining myocardial viability in the presence of coronary artery occlusion, acute myocardial i...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/01/86 - 03/31/87

This proposed study is designed to develop and evaluate a method of replacing a hollow viscus with a prosthesis that allows primary mucosal healing and incorporation of the prosthetic into the healing process. Healing of a full thickness isolated bowel segment to 2 types of a hollow viscus prosthesis will be evaluated in dogs. Both types of pr...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/86 - 06/30/87

A multimonitor endotracheal tube with sensors for ECG, temperature, heart sounds, and breath sounds was developed in Phase I studies and feasibility clearly demonstrated in dog experiments. ECG signals, heart and breath sounds, and temperature measured from a single anatomic site - the teachea - compared favorably with conventional monitors - s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 04/01/86 - 03/31/87

The feasibility of retrovenous myocardial drug delivery (Xylocaine C14) to treat and control arrhythmias will be tested in the sheep after coronary artery occlusion and compared to the standard intravenous route. End points of number and type of arrhythmias, Xylocaine dose, plasma, and myocardial Xylocaine C14 concentrations will be determined....

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 12/01/85 - 11/30/86

A new approach to therapy of myocardial ischemia involves the perfusion of oxygenated blood via the venous side of the heart through the coronary sinus and large cardiac veins. Retrovenous diastolic myocardial perfusion (RVDP) has the potential for maintaining myocardial viability in the presence of coronary artery occlusion, acute myocardial i...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/15/85 - 01/14/86

Chronic progressive heart failure will be produced in sheep by administration of specific myocardiotoxic drugs. In Phase I, project feasibility will be determined by administering allylamine, doxorubricin, or cobalt chloride in varying doses to healthy sheep, then following changes which occur with time in cardiac output, hemodynamics in the gr...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 05/05/85 - 11/04/85

Multimonitors for ECG, temperature, heart sounds, and breath sounds will be fabricated on endotracheal tubes and bench tested. The capability of monitoring multiple physiologic parameters from a single anatomic site (the trachea) is cost-efficient in terms of current practices and will provide better patient care. The multimonitor endotracheal...
