Carbon nanotube covering improves electrical stimulation therapy used for Parkinson’s, despair, chronic pain Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have designed a way to improve electrical stimulation of nerves by outfitting electrodes with the most recent in chemically engineered fashion: a coating of basic black, formed from carbon nanotubes. The nanotube sheathing improves the signals transmitted and received by electrodes, which researchers say is a critical step for advancing electric nerve stimulation therapy potentially Cialis och Levitra jämföra . This kind of therapy increasingly displays promise for diseases ranging from epilepsy to depressive disorder to chronic leg and back again pain. By implanting electronic nerve stimulators, doctors elsewhere have provided a quadriplegic patient with the ability to move a pc cursor at will, and monkeys have been able to move items in a virtual world with mere brain power.

Based on numerous risk and anatomical factors, neither traditional mitral valve operation, nor transcatheter fix with MitraClip, were choices for this patient. Through cautious review and consideration, we determined that TMVI, using CardiAQ's 2nd Generation Transcatheter Mitral Valve and its own new Trans-Apical delivery program, could offer this patient a chance at an extended and convenient life. The valve was implanted successfully with superb function. The patient is recovering and already feels a marked reduction in symptoms uneventfully. CardiAQ's second generation Transcatheter Mitral Valve builds upon the organization's proprietary way for anchoring the implant through leaflet engagement, chordal preservation, and annular attachment, while offering greater toughness, improved flow properties, and a novel feature for the prevention of paravalvular leakages, said Arshad Quadri, M.D., cardiac doctor, Founder, and CMO.
