This PSV augmented tidal breath will be more easily trapped in the area of lung that is super compliant while having no elastic recoil
in this light, it is interesting to note that strong elastic recoil
(7) and fast healing processes (16) are also found in amorphous polymers.
Treatment of these lesions can be complicated by challenging anatomy that makes catheter delivery difficult, balloon slippage leading to "geographic miss," elastic recoil
and the need to use high pressures to open lesions.
The catheter is designed to enable dilatation of fibrocalcific lesions at lower pressure; reduce "geographic miss" due to slipping of traditional angioplasty balloons; reduce elastic recoil
in ostial side branches; and facilitate stent placement and expansion.
withstand the elastic recoil
found in renal arteries and incorporates a
Because the device scores the lesion with precise incisions, it may also prevent elastic recoil
in these stubborn lesions.
This new aerosol delivery device stores the aerosol that is generated during the patient's exhalation phase in a non-latex elastic reservoir bag, and releases it to the patient on the subsequent breath, with a slight boost from the elastic recoil
of the expanded bag, along with the other aerosol that the nebulizer is generating.
The RePneu LVRC System is a minimally invasive device intended to improve lung function in emphysema patients by brochoscopically implanting Nitinol coils into the lungs to compress damaged tissue (lung volume reduction) and restore elastic recoil
to the healthier lung tissue.
