2012-182 – Lung cancer is the leading couse of cancer deaths in the United States. Lobectomy is the gold standard extent of resection for most lung cancers, but some patients are poor candidates for lobectomy due to poor pulmonary health/function and/or other comorbities. Sublobar resection, the removal of less than a lobe of the lung, is a compromise procedure for these patients in that it allows for... Read More
2012-150 – Patients who develop obstruction in the gastrointestinal track due to inflammatory strictures, or failure of sphincter muscles to relax, are benefitted by relief of that obstruction. Mayo has developed a device to stabilize the position and control length and depth. The device can be used in an lumen (gastrointestinal, vascular, urologic, gynecologic, pulmonary etc).
2012-132 – Extraction of implanted cardiac leads is being increasingly required because of infection, lead malfunction, and a reflection of the increasing number of patients requiring cardiac devices. Present devices that use either laser extraction or radiofrequency-based approaches do not have a method to guide them so as to follow the course of the implanted leads, and thus inadvertent energy...
