Introduction- The global incidence of thyroid cancer has risen significantly, prompting the development of innovative surgical techniques. Transoral thyroidectomy offers a scarless alternative, with the transoral endoscopic thyroidectomy vestibular approach (TOETVA) showing promising results. However, CO2 insufflation during TOETVA can lead to...

The wrist is one of the most complex joints in the human body, comprised of multiple bones and ligaments, and capable of performing a variety of movements. Proper wrist motion relies heavily on the interplay between the carpal bones of the hand and its ligamentous connections, and when that interplay is compromised hand function can be severely...

Effective management of operating room (OR) schedules is vital for the efficient operation of healthcare facilities, especially considering the impact of decisions on staff, patients and costs. While extensive research has focused on optimizing initial schedules, the dynamic nature of surgery days introduces uncertainties that impact scheduling...

Manual wheelchair users, especially those with spinal cord injuries, often suffer from shoulder overuse and pain. Understanding the specific role of the muscles involved in wheelchair propulsion is essential to prevent these complications. Yet, there is uncertainty about which muscles are primarily recruited, and their contribution to propulsion...

Characterizing electrodes for neural interfaces is an essential step of the prototyping and manufacturing process. Sample performance can be modelled by conducting electrochemical measurements such as Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy, Cyclic Voltammetry, Voltage Transients and Noise characterization, providing insights for future use...

Introduction<br/>Osteoarthritis (OA) is a prevalent joint disease affecting 7% of the global population in 2020. Lower limb malalignment emerges as a significant contributor to OA, presenting as varus or valgus misalignment. This deviation induces unicompartmental pathology, leading to the wear and tear of the protective cartilage. Surgical...

Over two million bone grafts are performed worldwide, each year. The preferred method is using autografts, but there are two important downsides. There is often insufficient tissue to harvest and the scar at the harvesting side is painfull for the patient. Therefore there exists a great need to improve synthetic grafts.<br/><br/>Traditionally,...

This thesis proposes a method of detecting autonomic neuropathy in low-income countries using an infrared camera. Access to healthcare is often limited in low-income countries delaying the detection of neuropathy. If neuropathy can be detected in the earliest stage, often the autonomic state, damage to motor and sensory nerves can be prevented....

Electronic interfaces, particularly microelectrode arrays (MEAs), are crucial for studying electrophysiological processes in the body, with applications ranging from implants to deep brain simulators. In neuroscience, they play a vital role in exploring neuronal cell distribution and behaviour, as well as disorders like epilepsy and Alzheimer’s...

In recent years, many therapeutic applications for medical ultrasound have arisen, such as ablation of tumors, breaking up kidney stones, and neuromodulation. To localize the target area, often ultrasound imaging methods are used. Conventionally, a different transducer array is used for imaging and therapeutic applications because of their...

<br/>Organ-on-Chip (OoC) is a technology that aims to increase the efficiency of drug development processes and organ models by engineering well-defined cell culture environments. Physiological relevant mechanical, chemical, or electrical cues provide in vivo-like microenvironments for realistic cell maturation. Biodegradable technologies have...

The development of neural prostheses, especially those directly targeting the brain, requires extensive research and modelling before clinical trials can be performed. Currently, the resolution of artificial vision is not sufficient for everyday tasks. By studying the expected spatial extent of stimulation, we aim to provide insights to...

Running is one of the most practiced sports worldwide, offering numerous health benefits, but also carrying a risk of injury, mainly at the knee and ankle joints. The origin of running injuries is not fully understood. With predictive neuromusculoskeletal simulations, more insight could be gained into the biomechanical mechanisms that may lead...

Background <br/>Damage dealt to the central nervous system (CNS) caused by trauma or disease can have detrimental effects on human quality of life because the CNS has limited regenerative capabilities. Efforts to replace lost neural cells require improved knowledge and methods for differentiation of neural stem cells (NSCs).<br/><br/>Objective ...

This thesis project is part of a larger research project at the LUMC and focuses on overcoming challenges in studying blood vessel mechanics, particularly disturbed flow conditions, using Gelatin Methacryloyl (GelMA). Traditional models fail to replicate the complexity of blood vessels. GelMA stands out for its adjustable mechanical properties,...

Stroke, caused by large vessel occlusions, is the second leading cause of death worldwide. Large vessel occlusions are the result of thrombosis, the undesired coagulation of blood within the vasculature. Due to this coagulation, a vessel can get blocked, prohibiting blood flow to areas distal from the occlusion, with all the serious consequences...
