Background:<br/>An endomyocardial biopsy (EMB) is an invasive procedure where biopsy samples are taken from within the heart for diagnosis of different myocardiopathies and or heart transplant rejection monitoring. During EMB procedures, a minimum of five tissue samples are required to be taken from the heart wall for investigation. <br/>Current...

Summary<br/>Introduction<br/>The increasing use of cardiac catheterisation procedures has raised concerns about occupational radiation exposure and its associated health risks for clinicians. Radiation exposure can lead to deterministic and stochastic effects, including cataract and various cancers. To minimise these risks, the ALARA (As Low As...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most prevalent cardiac arrhythmia, progressive in nature, and known to have a negative impact on mortality, morbidity, and quality of life. Patients requiring acute termination of AF to restore sinus rhythm are subjected to electrical cardioversion, which requires sedation and therefore hospitalization due to...

Background: People living with cardiovascular diseases (CVD) often experience work participation problems. Good work-focused healthcare, defined as the received advice, treatment, and guidance focusing on work participation, can support the patient and work place. However, experiences with work-focused healthcare are generally not always...

Positioning and stabilizing a catheter at the required location inside a vessel or the heart is a complicated task in interventional cardiology. In this review we provide a structured classification of catheter stabilization mechanisms to systematically assess their challenges during cardiac interventions. Commercially available, patented,...

Radiation is increasingly used to treat otherwise dangerous operations such as valve replacements with minimal consequences for the patient using live X-ray and catheters. These minimal invasive interventions are beneficial for the patient but physicians are exposed to high doses of radiation as a result. Products in the market of radiation...

Humanity grows from making mistakes. However, there is a group of people, and their cost of mistakes might be higher than the average. They are therefore protected by others, and their opportunity to explore the world is deprived. This protective behavior could be unnecessary or excessive, which is defined as overprotection. To detect the...

Objectives – Over the past decades, more and more cardiac diseases have been treated in interventional cardiology. Catheters are generally used to access the heart through the blood vessels. The previously developed steerable Sigma catheter at Delft University of Technology, tackles cable related challenges of conventional mechanically...

In the Netherlands alone, an estimated 730,000 persons are currently diagnosed with coronary heart disease (CHD), 120,000 with heart failure, and 260,000 with atrial fibrillation. As of 2014, cardiovascular disease accounted for 27% of all deaths1. The cardiology department of the Leiden University Medical Centre (LUMC) has a regional role in...

This report presents a design proposal of a product-service system that is supposed to facilitate cardiologists in their auscultation responsibilities. Auscultation today is usually still performed with an acoustic stethoscope, in which the cardiologist tries to recognize abnormalities concerning the patient’s heart through attentive listening. ...

Chronic total occlusion (CTO) occurs in approximately a third of all patients with coronary artery disease and is one of the most challenging types of conditions to treat. Minimally invasive methods like percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) show a high treating potential as well as low costs, short hospital stay and fast recovery. However,...
