▸ Machining of Clots and Plaques Inside Blood Vessels
❝ The blockage of a blood vessel due to clots or plaques is a major threat to human health. Thrombectomy and atherectomy are two treatment procedures for the removal of clots and hardened plaque, respectively, inside the blood vessel to restore the blood flow. Micro-machining using catheter-based minimally invasive medical devices is an enabling technology for the safe and effective removal of hardened plaques or tough clots and has great opportunities for innovative medical devices and impacts on human health. Thrombectomy is the physical removal of blood clots in the brain for stroke treatment. Current aspiration catheter and stenting retriever only allow for about 50% complete recanalization for acute arterial clots. For effective removal of chronic venous clots in pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis, the catheter-based minimally invasive thrombectomy device is still lacking. A cutting-based thrombectomy device using a high-speed rotating tool at the tip of the catheter tube and the vacuum for suction of the chip for thrombectomy is presented. Limitations of current thrombectomy devices will be assessed.
Atherectomy is the internal grinding of hardened calcified plaque in the heart’s coronary artery or knee’s popliteal artery using the diamond grinding wheel rotating up to 230,000 rpm. The experimental discovery of the orbital motion of the grinding wheel, the computational fluid dynamic modeling to analyze the orbital motion, smooth particle hydrodynamic modeling of material removal in grinding, the miniature (less than 1 mm diameter) grinding wheel at the tip of the driveshaft, and a startup to explore the commercial opportunity are presented.
This talk will conclude with the evolution of biomedical manufacturing and its impacts on manufacturing in healthcare. ❞
