Intravascular Sono-Ablation for In-Stent Restenosis Relief: Transducer Development and the In-Vitro Demonstration

Intravascular Sono-Ablation for In-Stent Restenosis Relief: Transducer Development and the In-Vitro Demonstration

Intravascular Sono-Ablation for In-Stent Restenosis Relief: Transducer Development and the In-Vitro Demonstration 787 443 IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering (TBME)
This paper proposes a novel focused ultrasound (FUS) ablation to treat in-stent restenosis (ISR). As a preliminary study for proof of concept, a miniaturized FUS device was designed, constructed, and validated through in vitro tests. The test results demonstrated the safety and therapeutic potential of sono-ablation for ISR treatments. read more
