Laparoscopic Renal Denervation System for Treating Resistant Hypertension: Overcoming Limitations of Catheter-based Approaches
The radical sympathectomy and percutaneous catheter-based renal denervation (RDN) are two techniques proposed to treat life-threatening resistant hypertension. However, sympathectomy has been abandoned due to the procedure being too invasive, and RDN resulted in variation in blood pressure reduction between patients due to suboptimal denervation. Thus, a method to effectively ablate renal nerves while not being very invasive is needed to treat the resistant hypertension patients. Here we propose a minimally invasive Laparoscopic Denervation System (LDS) to serve this unmet clinical need. The LDS employs a direct renal nerve ablation technique while not imparting thermal arterial damage... Read more

Ballistocardiogram-Based Approach to Cuff-Less Blood Pressure Monitoring: Proof-of-Concept and Potential Challenges
The goal of this study was to propose and establish the proof-of-concept of an ultra-convenient cuffless blood pressure (BP) monitoring approach based on the ballistocardiogram (BCG).  The proposed approach monitors systolic and diastolic BP (SP and DP) independently by exploiting... Read more

Unobtrusive Detection of Simulated Orthostatic Hypotension and Supine Hypertension using Ballistocardiogram and Electrocardiogram of Healthy Adults
Effective management of neurogenic orthostatic hypotension and supine hypertension (SH-OH) due autonomic failure requires a frequent and timely adjustment of medication throughout the day to maintain the blood pressure (BP) within the normal range, i.e., an accurate depiction of BP... Read more
