We present novel mechanics, materials and integration strategies for this new class of bioelectronics onboard minimally invasive catheter based systems. Representative examples highlight the clinical significance soft biointegrated electronics. ABSTRACT | Established classes of high-performance electronics have driven advances in interventional biomedicine.(More)
Balloon catheter-based techniques that apply mechanical force to blood vessel walls have dramatically advanced the standard of care for patients with vascular disease. But balloons are limited in their therapeutic potential because they rely on mechanics alone and lack electronically active materials. Recent advances in balloon catheters with integrated(More)
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Recent studies suggest that pericardial adipose tissue (PCAT) secretes inflammatory factors that contribute to the development of CVD. To better characterize the role of PCAT in the pathogenesis of disease, we performed a large-scale unbiased analysis of(More)
