Development of intravascular ultrasound transducers to monitor chronic total occlusion treatment by microrobots

Abstract

Chronic total occlusion (CTO) is a completely blocked coronary artery disease. For treatment, surgical procedure for CTO tunneling is generally conducted. The success rate of this procedure relies mainly upon the proficiency of the surgeon. During the surgery, the surgeon is constantly exposed to radioactivity emitted by X-ray based imaging devices such as… (More)
