Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common medical condition in men. The current standard treatment for BPH is transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). More than 400,000 men in the United States undergo TURP each year. The requirements of general anesthesia and hospitalization for TURP add to the relatively high morbidity and cost of ...

Topic:
Budget: 09/30/99 - 06/30/01

The long-term objective of this research is to improve breast cancer management by utilizing thermal information as an adjunct to mammography to aid in clinical decisions when confronted with equivocal mammograms. Before this objective is reached, the relationship of thermal abnormalities to breast...

Topic:
Budget: 06/15/99 - 12/14/00

The proposed research is intended to address the problem of extravasation events in the neonatal and pediatric patient population. Extravasations of intravenous fluids in children can have serious consequences when gross extravasations occur. Skin necrosis can occur which may require treat...

Topic:
Budget: 06/01/99 - 07/31/00

This proposal defines the need for the development of a device involving safe, rapid and uniform heating to thaw frozen blood and blood components. This device would result in a therapeutically effective product that would reduce the risk of contamination and damage, and significantly increase allowable storage time. Rapid thawing (i.e., less th...
