From Scans, Doctors 3D Print Custom Heart Wraps to Deliver Treatments

From Scans, Doctors 3D Print Custom Heart Wraps to Deliver Treatments | HoltersCardiacos | Scoop.it

The buzz about 3D printing can at times give the impression that the technology is a panacea that makes all manufacturing cheaper. The truth is 3D printing has one very specific use case: It makes prototypes and custom, one-of-a-kind items cheaper and faster to make.

 

Medicine would seem like a prime beneficiary of this technology, potentially using 3D printing to provide patients with custom-made implants and stents. Yet, to date, medical researchers have focused on the most ambitious goals for the technology, such as replacement organs printed from a patient’s own stem cells, which need years of development before they reach average patients.

 

Recently, a somewhat more modest medical device — and one that could find its way relatively quickly into treatment protocols — was created using 3D printing. Researchers Igor Efimov from Washington University in St. Louis and John Rogers from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign used MRI and CT scans of rabbit and human hearts to 3D-print custom-fitting flexible mesh sacs that fit each heart perfectly and stayed in place as it beat.

 

“Each heart is a different shape, and current devices are one-size-fits-all and don’t at all conform to the geometry of a patient’s heart,” said Efimov.

 

Inside its fabric, the mesh can also hold sensors that monitor for signs of trouble and deliver electrical pulses, if needed. The sensors are embedded in the fabric using technology similar to what Google has said it will use in sugar-monitoring contact lenses, only more nuanced.

 

Doctors can position the sensors or electrodes more precisely using the wrap than by attaching them directly to the heart with sutures or adhesives, Efimov and Rogers state in a recent paper in Nature Communications. They demonstrate in the paper that sensors attached to the mesh (or multifunctional integumentary membrane) accurately measure temperature, mechanical strain and pH, and could deliver pulses of electricity.

 

Depending on the sensors used, the heart wrap could improve treatments for a range of disorders; it could also be used to deliver medication directly to where its needed. But the device was conceptualized specifically to treat ventricle deformities and arrhythmias. The arrhythmia atrial fibrillation affects about 4 million Americans; patients often undergo a surgery that destroys the heart’s own drummer, the atrioventricular node, and subsequently receive a pacemaker.

The ZIO Patch 57% better at picking up arrhythmia than a Holter Monitor? and you have the bonus of being able to shower!

My Life Check - Life's Simple 7™

My Life Check - Life's Simple 7™ | HoltersCardiacos | Scoop.it

Learn about the state of your heart and what you can do to live better. Take the My Life Check Assessment. I recommend reviewing the American Heart Association’s Life’s Simple 7 to learn about your cardiovascular health in a patient-friendly format. You can go through the Life’s Simple 7 assessments and bring those numbers, as well as your questions, to your doctor.

Just recently a patient with a family history of heart disease asked, “Am I doing everything I can to avoid developing coronary heart disease as I get older?” We looked at the computer in my office together for an introduction to Life’s Simple 7.

I also explained how to sign up on the AHA’s Heart360 website, where you can enter and track personal cardiovascular health information (such as blood pressure, weight, glucose and cholesterol measurements, and medications). It was easy. And within less than 15 minutes we were linked up on Heart360, which patients and doctors can use to communicate online — quickly and securely — about a patient’s health."

The AHA's Simple 7 is a great place for people to start to begin to know aboiut strategies that can reduce lifetime risk of heart attack and stroke.

The SEVEN are listed but the website does a great job explaining each in detail:

1.  Get Active 

2. Control Cholesterol

3. Eat Better

4. Manage Blood Pressure

5.  Lose Weight

6. Reduce Blood Sugar

7.  Stop Smoking

Simple to prescribe... hard to follow for most.
