Osteoporosis, which is characterized by low bone mass and microarchitectural deterioration, is a major risk factor for fractures of the hip, vertebrae, and distal forearm. Because occlusion between...
Device for preventing bacterial infections in prostate biopsies
When prostate biopsies are taken through the rectum – which is by far the most common procedure – infection may occur as bacteria normally safely confined within the rectum are pushed into the...
Device for prevention of needle tract seeding
Biopsy procedure implies some risks for patient’s health as it can result in inadvertent adverse effects and complications. One of these potential complications is needle-tract seeding which refers...
Medical device based on microwave technology for prevention and diagnosis of diseases
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a serious health burden in which screening is capable of reducing both the mortality and the incidence of the disorder. Among cancer types, CRC is one of the most deadly...
Modular High-Voltage Bipolar Pulse Generator for Electroporation Applications
The use of the technique of irreversible electroporation (IRE) requires the development of high-voltage and high-current generators showing also a high performance and controllability. In clinical...
