  • Patent Ductus and Vascular Occlusion DevicesMichelle Carlsen Elaine IsomBrad KlostermanOrnob RoyAdvisor: Dr. Thomas Doyle

  • Project DefinitionObjective: Design, build, and market an occlusion device which can be used to close the Patent Ductus and cylindrical vasculaturePresentation topics: Backgroundsolutionaccomplishmentscurrent status future plans

  • Background:Patent DuctusCondition affecting Infants/Children~ 10-12% of congenital defects40 cases/yr at Vanderbilt> 20,000 nationwideConnection btw pulmonary artery and aorta

  • Background:General VasculatureLess common than PDACylindrical shapeReroute blood flowIsolate defective vasculatureImpede significant flow

  • PDA/ Vascular ConditionsDiagnosis:Heart murmurExtreme weight lossStunted growthIrregular blood flow*

    * General vasculatureConsequences:Irreversible pulmonary-vascular diseaseCongestive heart failureHemorrhaging (e.g. diabetics, post-surgical patients)*

  • RequirementsBiocompatibleQuick endothelialization (1-2months) Delivered through a catheter < 2mm diameter Simple, Retrievable Inexpensive Various size (2 to 10mm) Form-fittingMaximum effectiveness

    Internal deviceComplete closure

    Standard catheter size

    Minimum trainingCost effective - comparativelyUniversal DeviceImmovable and closureNo leakage

  • Current SolutionsEndomethiasininitial form of treatmentsteroid medicine (vasoconstrictor)restricted to premature infantsSuturingeffectiveinvasive, long recovery
