Rectal Retractor for damage-prevention during radiation therapy
Project ID: D2018-64Background Effective radiation treatment delivers the maximum possible dose to a tumor while minimizing radiation exposure to the surrounding healthy tissue. Curative doses of radiation can induce chronic morbidities in nearby critical structures. For most cancers in the pelvic region, the dose-limiting organ is the rectum, whe...
Process to Produce High-strength and Corrosion Resistant Alloy for Patient-Specific Bioresorbable Bone Fixation Implants and Hardware
Project ID: D2016-43IP Status: Provisional Patent Application # 62/270,227Invention Description: Novel metallic alloy composition combined with a post-shaping heat-treatment process produces bioresorbable bone fixation hardware and implants. The technology produces stronger and less biocorrosive patient-specific devices than the base material. The ...
Bio-inspired Shape Memory Alloy Pedicle Screw to Compensate for Bone Degradation
Project ID: D2009-06Background:Treatments of spinal diseases such as degenerative disorders, spinal trauma, spinal tumor, and spinal deformity and the like, presently use a method of the transpediclular internal fixation with satisfactory results. The use of fixation assemblies in some patients is often complicated by the problem of hardware pull...
