  • Investigation of adverse events associated with an off-label use of arterial stents and CE-marked iliac vein stents in the iliac vein: insights into developing a better iliac vein stent

    Journal of Artificial Organs     1 - 7  2018.02

     View Summary

    © 2018 The Japanese Society for Artificial Organs We analyzed the adverse events associated with an off-label use of arterial stents and CE-marked iliac vein stents for the treatment of iliac venous thromboembolism and investigated their relationships with the anatomical features of the iliac vein, to gain insights into the development of a better iliac vein stent. Reports of adverse events following the use of stents in the iliac vein were retrieved from the Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience (MAUDE) database that contain suspected device-associated complications reported to the Food and Drug Administration. Data from 2006 to 2016 were investigated. The literature analysis was also conducted using PubMed, Cochrane Library, EMBASE, and Web of Science focusing on English articles published up to 4 October 2016. The analysis of 88 adverse events from the MAUDE database and 182 articles from the literature revealed that a higher number of adverse events had been reported following the use of arterial stents in the iliac vein compared to CE-marked iliac vein stents. While stent migration and shortening were reported only for the arterial stents, stent fracture and compression occurred regardless of the stent type, even though a vein does not pulsate. A study of the anatomical features of the iliac vein implies that bending, compression, and kink loads are applied to the iliac vein stents in vivo. For designing, developing, and pre-clinical testing of stents intended for use in the iliac vein, the above mechanical load environments induced by the anatomical features should be considered.

  • Real-time visualization of thrombus formation at the interface between connectors and tubes in medical devices by using optical coherence tomography

    Yuki Matsuhashi, Kei Sameshima, Yoshiki Yamamoto, Mitsuo Umezu, Kiyotaka Iwasaki

    PLOS ONE   12 ( 12 )  2017.12  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Background
    Blood-contacting devices have contributed to improving the treatment of patients. However, thrombus formation at the interface between a connector and tube is still a potential source of thrombus-related complications that induce stroke or myocardial infarction. We aimed to develop a non-blood-contacting real-time method for visualizing thrombus formation, and to experimentally investigate the time-dependent phenomenon of thrombus formation at the interface between a connector and a tube in a medical device.
    Methods and findings
    An optical coherence tomography device with a center wavelength of 1330 nm was used to visualize thrombus formation during porcine blood circulation for 50 min in a closed 50-mL circulation system isolated from ambient air. The thrombus formation sites at the interface between a tube and connector were visualized. The area of the thrombus formation at the interface between the inlet of the connector and the tube was found to be 0.012 +/- 0.011 mm 2. Conversely, at the interface between the outlet of the connector and the tube, the area was found to be 0.637 +/- 0.306 mm(2). Thus, significantly larger amounts of thrombus were formed at the outlet interface (p < 0.01). The thrombus formation area at the outlet interface increased over time. Conversely, the area of thrombus formation showed repeated increasing and decreasing behavior at the inlet interface. Flow visualization with particle image velocimetry showed the presence of a flow separated area in the minimal flow phase at the inlet interface and a large recirculating slow flow region at the outlet interface in the minimal flow phase. These data suggested that the recirculating stagnant flow region contributed to thrombus growth.
    Conclusions
    The method presented here was effective in quantitatively assessing time-dependent phenomena of thrombus formation at the connector-tube interface. The method may contribute to the assessment of thrombogenicity of a novel design of connector.

  • Investigation of the influence of fluid dynamics on thrombus growth at the interface between a connector and tube

    Yuki Matsuhashi, Kei Sameshima, Yoshiki Yamamoto, Mitsuo Umezu, Kiyotaka Iwasaki

    JOURNAL OF ARTIFICIAL ORGANS   20 ( 4 ) 293 - 302  2017.12  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Thrombus formation at the interface between connectors and tubes is a potential risk factor for complications. We investigated time-dependent relationships between formation of thrombus and hemodynamic factors at the interface between connectors and tubes using optical coherence tomography (OCT) under pulsatile flow. A swept-source OCT with the center wavelength of 1330 nm was employed. The sequential process of thrombus formation at the interface of connectors and tubes in the inlet and outlet was investigated. Connectors with and without tapers were tested using identical 50-ml air-contactless circuits. Fresh human blood from healthy volunteers was circulated under pulsatile flow. Thrombus initially formed at the interface between the connector tip and the tube. Geometries of thrombus growth were different between the 2 connectors, and between the inlet and the outlet. Growth of thrombus was observed at the interface between the connectors and tubes over time in 60 min circulation, except at the outlet part of connector without tapers. At the connector without tapers outlet, thrombus propagation length from the connector edge toward the flow downstream was comparable at 10 and 60 min (0.55 +/- 0.35 vs. 0.51 +/- 0.32 mm, p = 0.83). Analysis using particle image velocimetry showed the presence of a flow reattachment point 1.5 mm downstream from the connector edge. These results suggest that the flow reattachment point inhibits downstream thrombus growth. We quantitatively demonstrated sequential thrombus process at the interface between the connectors and tubes under pulsatile flow of human blood using OCT.

  • A three-dimensional strain measurement method in elastic transparent materials using tomographic particle image velocimetry

    Azuma Takahashi, Sara Suzuki, Yusuke Aoyama, Mitsuo Umezu, Kiyotaka Iwasaki

    PLOS ONE   12 ( 9 )  2017.09  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Background
    The mechanical interaction between blood vessels and medical devices can induce strains in these vessels. Measuring and understanding these strains is necessary to identify the causes of vascular complications. This study develops a method to measure the threedimensional (3D) distribution of strain using tomographic particle image velocimetry (Tomo-PIV) and compares the measurement accuracy with the gauge strain in tensile tests.
    Methods and findings
    The test system for measuring 3D strain distribution consists of two cameras, a laser, a universal testing machine, an acrylic chamber with a glycerol water solution for adjusting the refractive index with the silicone, and dumbbell-shaped specimens mixed with fluorescent tracer particles. 3D images of the particles were reconstructed from 2D images using a multiplicative algebraic reconstruction technique (MART) and motion tracking enhancement. Distributions of the 3D displacements were calculated using a digital volume correlation. To evaluate the accuracy of the measurement method in terms of particle density and interrogation voxel size, the gauge strain and one of the two cameras for Tomo-PIV were used as a video-extensometer in the tensile test. The results show that the optimal particle density and interrogation voxel size are 0.014 particles per pixel and 40 x 40 x 40 voxels with a 75% overlap. The maximum measurement error was maintained at less than 2.5% in the 4-mmwide region of the specimen.
    Conclusions
    We successfully developed a method to experimentally measure 3D strain distribution in an elastic silicone material using Tomo-PIV and fluorescent particles. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report that applies Tomo-PIV to investigate 3D strain measurements in elastic materials with large deformation and validates the measurement accuracy.

    Transactions of Japanese Society for Medical and Biological Engineering   55 ( 5 ) 430 - 430  2017

     View Summary

    <p>The mechanical properties of a scaffold is one of the critical cues for differentiating stem cells. Although hydrogels reconstituted from cardiac ECM have been utilized as a scaffold to induce cardiac differentiation, how to obtain the appropriate mechanical properties of the hydrogel for cardiac differentiation has not been investigated. We modulated the mechanical properties of ventricular ECM hydrogels (vECM gels) using N-(3-Dimethylaminopropyl)-N'-ethylcarbodiimide hydrochloride (EDAC). The mechanical properties of vECM gels were investigated by means of compression test and analyzed by a non-linear viscoelastic model, which consists of two non-linear springs, the first determines the reversible elasticity and the second for the viscous dissipation. The first elastic modulus K1 in 12.5 mg/ml-vECM gels can be enhanced from 129.5 Pa to 3868.0 Pa by EDAC treatment as well as the second modulus K2 from 1956.3 Pa to 5915.9 Pa. The compatibility of the gels for cell culture was also investigated.</p>

     View Summary

    <p>We have been developing a surgical navigation system to support a surgeon to identify the anatomical orientation. Its first prototype was designed in 2004 and clinically tested in 2006. During this decade, we have utilized it in one hundred clinical cases. Learned through trial and error, it was found that this system needed to improve the usability and the reliability in registration process to show valuable information for surgery. Our improved system was approved to use for clinical pre-trial from Hospital Ethics Committee of Tokyo Women's Medical University (160402), and it was utilized for six cases from June 2016 to January 2017. The new system worked suitably compared with the former one. As for spending time on the new system, it took 9.8±1.7 minutes before thoracotomy and 6.4±1.5 minutes after adhesiolysis. Target arteries were determined smoothly in all cases. We hope that widespread use of the system would be promoted.</p>

  • Reduction in incomplete stent apposition area caused by jailed struts after single stenting at left main bifurcation lesions: micro-CT analysis using a three-dimensional elastic bifurcated coronary artery model

    Yutaka Hikichi, Mitsuo Umezu, Koichi Node, Kiyotaka Iwasaki

    Cardiovascular Intervention and Therapeutics   32 ( 1 ) 12 - 17  2017.01

     View Summary

    Stent struts protruding into ostial side branch called “jailed strut” at bifurcation lesions is a likely cause of thrombus formation. We aimed to investigate the influences of multiple kissing balloon inflation (KBI) for stent expansion, and stent platform design, respectively, on the reduction of incomplete stent apposition area (ISA area) caused by jailed struts at a side-branch ostium, using a three-dimensional elastic left main (LM) bifurcated coronary artery model. The referenced LM bifurcation angle data of 209 patients were stratified by tertiles focusing on the angle between the LM trunk (LMT) and left anterior descending artery (LAD). A bifurcation model was fabricated with angles of 129°, 122.2°, and 76.4° for LMT–LAD, LMT–left circumflex (LCx), and LAD–LCx, respectively, and with diameters of 5, 3.75, and 3.5 mm for LMT, LAD, and LCx, respectively
    these diameters fulfill Murray’s law. A 75 % stenosis was included along the LMT. One-time and three-time KBIs were conducted using two-link Nobori and three-link Xience Xpedition (n = 6 each). The ISA area was quantified using micro-CT. Three-time KBI was effective in reducing the ISA area compared with one-time KBI for both the Nobori (p = 0.05) and Xience Xpedition (p = 0.07). The ISA area was smaller in the Nobori than in the Xience Xpedition, both in one-time and three-time KBI (one-time KBI: p = 0.003
    three-time KBI: p = 0.001). Our findings of this study on reducing the ISA area by focusing on an interventional technique and stent design may help to improve coronary bifurcation intervention for a possibly better long-term clinical outcome.

    New technology related to artificial organs is most attractive for worldwide researchers. We believe they must contribute for the future patients against untreatable diseases. Regulatory science is a new science to establish 'social acceptance' of new technology into the clinical market as soon as possible. In the history of silicone breast implants, we could recognize risks many times; however, we missed such chances to prevent a subsequent crisis. We analyzed the trend of published literature related to silicone breast implants to review the medical professionals' interests on such risks. This trend showed, despite issues of a social acceptance of silicone breast implants in a few countries, other countries' medical professionals had no interest. Our hypothesis is 'medical professionals face the government and do not have contributed to re-establish the social acceptance of new technologies for patients'. Any technology does not have the complete evidence of safety, efficacy and quality, despite regulatory authorities' review and approval with clinical evidences. medical professionals need to conduct subsequently the epidemiological study, to take a meta-analysis periodically and to create/update the guidance for their patients under their professional ethics after the marketing of new technologies. We need to take seriously the 'lesson learned' from the history of silicone breast implants for all kind of new technologies existed in the present.

  • In vivo vascularization of cell sheets provided better long-term tissue survival than injection of cell suspension.

    Ryohei Takeuchi, Yosuke Kuruma, Hidekazu Sekine, Izumi Dobashi, Masayuki Yamato, Mitsuo Umezu, Tatsuya Shimizu, Teruo Okano

    Journal of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine   10 ( 8 ) 700 - 10  2016.08  [Refereed]  [International journal]

     View Summary

    Cell sheets have shown a remarkable ability for repairing damaged myocardium in clinical and preclinical studies. Although they demonstrate a high degree of viability as engrafted cells in vivo, the reason behind their survivability is unclear. In this study, the survival and vascularization of rat cardiac cell sheets transplanted in the subcutaneous tissue of athymic rats were investigated temporally. The cell sheets showed significantly higher survival than cell suspensions for up to 12 months, using an in vivo bioluminescence imaging system to detect luciferase-positive transplanted cells. Terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase dUTP nick-end labelling (TUNEL) assay also showed a smaller number of apoptotic cells in the cell sheets than in the cell suspensions at 1 day. Rapid vascular formation and maturation were observed inside the cell sheets using an in vivo imaging system. Leaky vessels appeared at 6 h, red blood cells flowing through functional vessels appeared at 12 h, and morphologically matured vessels appeared at 7 days. In addition, immunostaining of cell sheets with nerve/glial antigen-2 (NG2) showed that vessel maturity increased over time. Interestingly, these results correlated with the dynamics of cell sheet mRNA expression. Genes related to endothelial cells (ECs) proliferation, migration and vessel sprouting were highly expressed within 1 day, and genes related to pericyte recruitment and vessel maturation were highly expressed at 3 days or later. This suggested that the cell sheets could secrete appropriate angiogenic factors in a timely way after transplantation, and this ability might be a key reason for their high survival.

  • Time Series Analysis of the Effectiveness and Safety of Capsule Endoscopy between the Premarketing and Postmarketing Settings: A Meta-Analysis

    Kazuo Iijima, Mitsuo Umezu, Kiyotaka Iwasaki

    PLOS ONE   11 ( 6 )  2016.06  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Background
    Clinical studies for assessing the effectiveness and safety in a premarketing setting are conducted under time and cost constraints. In recent years, postmarketing data analysis has been given more attention. However, to our knowledge, no studies have compared the effectiveness and the safety between the pre- and postmarketing settings. In this study, we aimed to investigate the importance of the postmarketing data analysis using clinical data.
    Methods and Findings
    Studies on capsule endoscopy with rich clinical data in both pre- and postmarketing settings were selected for the analysis. For effectiveness, clinical studies published before October 10, 2015 comparing capsule endoscopy and conventional flexible endoscopy measuring the detection ratio of obscure gastrointestinal bleeding were selected (premarketing: 4 studies and postmarketing: 8 studies) from PubMed (MEDLINE), Cochrane Library, EMBASE and Web of Science. Among the 12 studies, 5 were blinded and 7 were non-blinded. A time series meta-analysis was conducted. Effectiveness (odds ratio) decreased in the postmarketing setting (premarketing: 5.19 [95% confidence interval: 3.07-8.76] vs. postmarketing: 1.48 [0.81-2.69]). The change in odds ratio was caused by the increase in the detection ratio with flexible endoscopy as the control group. The efficacy of capsule endoscopy did not change between pre- and postmarketing settings. Heterogeneity (I-2) increased in the postmarketing setting because of one study. For safety, in terms of endoscope retention in the body, data from the approval summary and adverse event reports were analyzed. The incidence of retention decreased in the postmarketing setting (premarketing: 0.75% vs postmarketing: 0.095%). The introduction of the new patency capsule for checking the patency of the digestive tract might contribute to the decrease.
    Conclusions
    Effectiveness and safety could change in the postmarketing setting. Therefore, time series meta-analyses could be useful to continuously monitor the effectiveness of medical device in clinical practices.

    Transactions of Japanese Society for Medical and Biological Engineering   54 ( 27 ) S160 - S160  2016

     View Summary

    <p>The effects of mechanical properties of the culture substrate on the cellular behavior are intensively investigated. However, most of the studies adjusted the elastic modulus of culture substrates by changing the substrate component concentration. In this study, we take the advantage of the nonlinear mechanical properties of porcine amniotic membrane to realize the sole adjustment of substrate elastic modulus by stretching the membrane at different stresses in a lab-made device. Fibroblasts were able to attach and proliferate nearly to confluence on the membrane (~500 cells/mm2 ) under low stress (elastic modulus smaller than 30.0 kPa); whereas, the cells failed to attach on the membrane under high stress (elastic modulus ~ 6.0 MPa). It implicates that the dynamic characteristics of the amniotic membrane related with the device structure may also impact the cellular behavior because the elastic modulus of conventional culture dishes (~GPa) is much greater than 6.0 MPa.</p>

    <p>Because software as a medical device (SaMD) does not come into direct contact with patients, it does not pose such direct harm as that caused by conventional hardware medical devices (non-SaMD) ; however, SaMD does present indirect harm. Using US recall data, the objective of this study was to investigate indirect harm caused by software medical devices including both SaMD and non-SaMD. We collected recall data in which the cause was determined by the US Food and Drug Administration to be software design, and we determined whether the product in each recall was SaMD or not (non-SaMD). We also classified the failure mode of each recall into four groups : physical (Group 1) ; information-related (Group 2), data-related (Group 3) ; and other (Group 4). We identified 6,393 recalls for 2009-2014, and 712 software-caused recalls. Of those, the leading failure mode was Group 2 that can lead to indirect harm and accounted for 408 (57%), followed by Group 1 that can lead to direct harm and accounted for 122 (17%). Of 408 Group 2 recalls, 387 (95%) were recall class Ⅱ and 6 (1%) were recall class Ⅰ. Of the 6, 4 were for non-SaMD and 2 were for SaMD. The findings revealed by this study indicate the importance of the further understanding of safety of information presentation functionality and the necessity of further discussion of safety measures.</p>

    Regulatory Science of Medical Products   6 ( 1 ) 1 - 10  2016

     View Summary

    Coronary stent fracture (SF) is recognized as a risk of restenosis or stent thrombosis. However, the actual incidence is unclear in real world clinical settings in Japan. This study aims to estimate the incidence of SF in Japan by surveying peer-reviewed journals, and to elucidate the actual situation of adverse event reports. We conducted literature analysis regarding the incidence of SF using PubMed and ICHUSHI on April 1 2014. For PubMed, the term "stent fracture" was used. For ICHUSHI, "coronary artery" (in Japanese), "stent" (in Japanese), "fracture" (in English), "fracture" (in Japanese), and "damage" (in Japanese) were used. PubMed search initially yielded 895 papers. Of these, 792 studies had been conducted in countries outside of Japan, 45 studies were related to non-coronary artery, 17 studies did not deal with incidences of SF, and 11 studies targeted duplicated cases during the same implantation period. After these studies were excluded, we analyzed 30 remaining papers comprising 14 observational studies and 16 case reports. There were 643 SF cases in the scientific papers and 105 SF cases in the adverse event reports. Through the 14 observational studies, the SF incidence was estimated as 5.4% (595/10,927 lesions). We found a significant difference in SF incidences between the paper and adverse event report (6.1-hold). These data indicated that the adverse event report showed a partial picture of the real situation.

    This research investigated mural cell densities in different wall thickness of five human unruptured cerebral aneurysms to evaluate the tissue healing ability of aneurysmal wall. Five aneurysms were dissected after craniotomy with markings to confirm the orientation of specimens. Harvested tissue were than fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde, embedded in paraffin, sliced in semi serial sections of 3 μm thickness, and stained with hematoxylin-eosin (HE) method. To investigate mural cell densities, wall thickness was measured, and the aneurysmal wall was sectioned into 100 μm increments from histological analysis. All sections were divided into two parts of inside and outside regions from the center of the wall, and inspection areas were focused on the inside region. The characteristics of mural cell densities were classified into three types. First type was that mural cell densities in under 100 μm regions was higher than in 100-200 μm regions, which were observed in case 1 and 4-1. Second type was that the mural cell densities increased in 100-300 μm wall regions, whereas in 300-500 μm regions, the mural cell densities decreased, which were observed in case 2 and 3. Third type was the mural cell densities increased as wall thickness increased, which were observed in case 4-2. These results suggested that the tissue healing ability was different depending on wall thickness and each case.

     View Summary

    Stimuli-responsive smart hydrogels have been exploited for various applications, including as biomaterials with environment-dependent changes in hydrophobicity, stiffness or volume. In this study, we report the functionalisation of a temperature-responsive poly(N-isopropylacryamide) (PNIPAAm) smart hydrogel with catechol groups to enhance its stiffness and cell attachment. To introduce biomimetic adhesive catechol group, which is derived from mussel feet, a photo-crosslinkable 3-hydroxytyramine hydrochloride-derived dopamine methacrylamide (DMA) monomer was synthesised. Then, temperature-responsive smart copolymer hydrogels were successfully fabricated by photo-polymerisation of the DMA with N-isopropylacryamide (NIPAAm). The fabricated smart hydrogels demonstrated temperature-dependent properties, and the DMA affected the swelling behaviour and compressive mechanical strength. In vitro cell culture experiments showed that the catechol groups in the smart hydrogels promoted cell attachment and spreading. These smart hydrogels will be useful as biomaterials as tissue scaffolds with controllable properties.

    Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVI) is a less invasive therapy and the number of operations is increasing. In some operations of TAVI, valve annulus rupture and failure were happened. Strain measurement method in the blood vessel has not been established and there is no way to evaluate the strain distribution experimentally. It is difficult to measure large deformation of the blood vessel using conventional digital volume correlation with computed tomography. This study presents a new strain measurement method of an elastic blood vessel model using the displacement distribution measured by tomographic particle image velocimetry. Tracer particles were distributed in the blood vessel model and displacement distribution was measured by tracking the particles. The displacement measuring accuracy affected by the amount of displacement and spatial resolutions was assessed. The strain yielded in the blood vessel model, when it was 10% expanded, was measured in the optimal condition determined by the accuracy measurement. In this study, the optimal displacement spatial resolutions and displacement condition were 64 X 64 X 64 voxel^3 and 90-150 μm respectively. This experimental investigation revealed that the higher strain was yielded in the inner wall of the blood vessel model and the strain becomes lower toward the outer wall.

     View Summary

    We have developed a navigation system for the blood vessel prosthesis replacement of aortic aneurysms, and have used it in clinical practice. This system supports surgeons to identify a target intercostal artery by using patient image. The patient image and real body are matched by registration. Reference points of registration are anatomical landmarks of skeleton such as jugular notch, sternal angle, left anterior superior iliac spine, pubis, and spinous process. However, identification of spinous process was hard to doctors in operation. We developed a new registration method which X, Y and Z axis correspond to the Head-Foot, Right-Left and Anterior-Posterior directions. The specific feature is that identification of spinous process is not necessary. We evaluated errors with the new registration method using the retrospective 6 clinical data. We calculated fiducial localization error. As a result, errors of anterior points in the Head-Foot direction were less than 10 mm. We aimed to reduce the Head-Foot error as less than 20 mm because the ribs exist at intervals of approximately 40 mm in the Head-Foot direction. The new registration method was confirmed to be effective in the decision of approach to the target artery. Moreover, even when the point of the spinous process changed to the next spinous process of the set spinous processes, error was equivalent to the original point, therefore, using the present system, the identification of the spinous process can be unnecessary. It was concluded that newly-developed registration algorism is effective for doctors in identification of intercostal artery.

    Relationships between impingement of blood flow and thrombus formation mechanisms in human arteries are still hypothetical. This study investigated the relationship between different conditions of impingement and thrombus formations. Impingements of whole blood were created using Y-shaped and T-shaped micro-channels that were MPC coated. The velocities of impingement were set to be 0.2 m/s and 3.0 m/s. The whole blood was obtained from a healthy male volunteer. The whole blood at the impingement area was observed with an inverted microscope and a high-speed camera. Also, areas of thrombus ware measured on the obtained images using Image-Pro Plus to quantify the thrombus volume. The results showed that thrombus formation occurred in the Y-shaped impingement flow and didn't occur in the T-shaped impingement flow in either of the velocity. The thrombus formation in the Y-shaped impingement at low velocity occurred at the position shifted to the right and left rear from the bifurcation center. The thrombus formation at high velocity occurred at the bifurcation center. In addition, thrombus at low velocity peeled off easily than at high velocity. In conclusion, it was suggested that different impingement patterns affect the formation, formation point, and detachment rate of thrombus in the micro-channels.

    This research investigated the properties of endothelial cells and wall structure of unruptured cerebral aneurysms to aim elucidation of cerebral aneurysm growth mechanism. Seven aneurysms were categorized into blood blister-like (under 80 μm), transition (80-100 μm), and hypertrophic (above 100 μm) lesion by its thickness and each lesion was observed with transmission electron microscope. The results showed that endothelial cell and wall property both improves as the thickness increases. In addition, number of layers constructing the aneurysm wall increased as the thickness increased. These results suggested that existence of endothelial cell may induce the thickening process of cerebral aneurysms and part of the thickening process may be creation of new layer from migration of smooth muscle cells and creation of fibrous layer.

    One of the problems with the cerebrovascular bypass surgery is that the adaptation mechanisms of the cerebral arteries are not clear for the medical professionals to prevent postoperative complications. In order to avoid postoperative complications, elucidation of the adaptation system in human cerebral arteries is necessary. It has been postulated that mean wall shear stress is maintained at a constant value in the arterial system; however, the credibility of the argument needs to be improve to apply the theory at clinical sites. This study investigates the consistency of the wall shear stress of the major cerebral arteries in 7 healthy volunteers using PC-MRI. The blood flowrate and the diameter of the arteries were plotted in the graph with blood flow rate against the third power of the diameter. The linear regression has been performed to see the correlation coefficient (R^2) to study the consistency of the arterial wall shear stress. Results showed a strong correlation coefficient (R^2=0.730±0.204) for the arteries with lower Wormersley number where the Hagen-Poiseuille assumption can be made. Therefore, it can be concluded that the wall shear stress is constant for the major cerebral arteries where the Hagen-Poiseuille flow can be produced.

    There have not been any preceding research which refer to the relationship between morphological characteristics of cerebral artery and risks of cerebral aneurysm initiation from the perspective of blood flow. The objective of this research is to evaluate risks of cerebral aneurysm initiation using CFD analysis focusing on WSS vector variations due to impinging flow by investigating the correlation between morphological parameter and WSS vector variation for 13 healthy volunteers. The result indicated impingement of blood flow at MCA bifurcations in all cases. The average values of WSS vector variation was 357.7 degrees, bifurcation angle was 90.9 degrees, and inclination angle was 19.3 degrees. Results showed a low correlation coefficient (R^2=0.232) between bifurcation angles and WSS vector variations. In addition, no correlation for inclination angles and WSS vector variations was observed. This result suggests that widening of bifurcation angles due to morphological change by aging may resulted in larger WSS vector variation due to impinging flow, and larger risks of cerebral aneurysm initiation.

    Thrombus formation at the interface between left ventricular wall and the inflow cannula of left ventricular assist device (LVAD) remains to be an unsolved problem that induces complications in clinical practice. The aim of this study is to develop an in vitro airless circuit which produces flow and pressure environments in patients with a LVAD, and to investigate an influence of MPC coating of the inflow cannula of EVAHEART^[○!R] LVAD (Sun Medical Technology Research Co., Japan) on thrombus detachment from the inflow cannula. In the thrombogenicity test, two identical circuits except for the cannula were prepared to form a comparative study. Heparinized blood from a single porcine with activated clotting time ranged within 130-210 sec was circulated for 4.5 hours. The tests were performed under the combinations of the total flow rate of 4 L/min or 5 L/min, and the pump rotational speed of 1800, 1900 or 2000 rpm, respectively. It was elucidated that higher amount of thrombus formed on the MPC non-coated cannula compared with MPC coated cannula. However, there was no difference in the amount of thrombus detached between the two cannula (Student's t-test, p=0.91). From these results, it was elucidated that the MPC non-coated cannula yielded significantly lower proportion of thrombus detachment to thrombus formation than the MPC coated cannula (Student's t-test, p<0.05).

    Hemofilters are medical devices for assisting deteriorated renal functions, which purify the blood by removing pathogen and wastes. For continuous hemofilters, antithronbogenecity is one of the most important requirements. The aim of this study is to investigate the key parameters for the establishment of a reliable in vitro thrombogenecity testing methodology for continuous hemofilters using human blood from healthy volunteers. This study used adjusted activated clotting time of human blood drawn from healthy volunteers to 150-200 sec using heparin. The blood was circulated in the air-contactless circuit with flow and pressure in a clinical situation was reproduces. The tests were terminated when the inlet pressure elevated to 150 mmHg from the initiation pressure of 70 mmHg at the inlet. The average circulation duration was 6.5±1.7 hours(n=4). The circulation duration using human blood from healthy volunteers were shorter than using porcine blood which was previously reported. Hematocrit of porcine blood was lower than the human blood from healthy volunteers, whereas the hematocrit of porcine blood was comparable to dialysis patients. These data indicated the importance of hematocrit of blood in the assessment of the thrombogenecity of continuous hemofilters.

    The purpose of this study is to investigate influences of multi-loads and stenosis in femoral-popliteal artery on fracture of self-expandable stent using finite element analysis. A nitinol alloy stent was selected. The three-dimensional CAD models of the stent and vessel were constructed using SolidWorks. First, the stent was compressed by four cylinder models. Second, the stent was deployed in 50%, 60% and 75% stenotic artery models. Third, cyclic multi-loads were applied to the artery model. Multi-loads were two types. One is shortening of 12.7% and torsion of 0.28 degree/mm (Average). Another is shortening of 6.9% and torsion of 0.14 degree/mm (Half of average). When average loads were applied, strain amplitude of stent were 0.61%, 0.75%, and 0.87% in 50%, 60% and 75% stenotic model. When half of average loads were applied, those were 0.36%, 0.41%, and 0.54%. According to constant-life diagrams of average loads, when the stent was deployed in over 60% stenotic artery model, risk of fracture was high. This study indicated that risk of fracture is increased by multi-loads and stenosis.

    In the treatment of anterior cruciate ligament rupture, anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is performed using autologous tendon. However, there are problems in the invasiveness and limitation in the source of autologous tendon. In order to solve these problems, a decellularized and sterilized bovine tendon has been developed. The aim of this study is to investigate cell infiltration into the decellularized and sterilized bovine tendon in rat anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. In 4 and 26 weeks after the implantation, the tissues were explanted and subjected to hematoxylin-eosin staining. In this study, rat autologous tendon were also implanted to compare cell infiltration into the reconstructed tissues between the decellularized and sterilized bovine tendon and rat autologous tendon In the implantation period of 4 weeks, the number of cells in the decellularized and sterilized bovine tendon was higher than that in the rat autologous tendon In the implantation period of 26 weeks, the number of cells in the decellularized and sterilized bovine tendon and that in the rat autologous tendon became comparable. In the implantation period of 26 weeks, the number of cells in the decellularized and sterilized bovine tendon and that in rat anterior cruciate ligament also became comparable. These data indicated that the decellularized and sterilized bovine tendon has a promise as a prosthesis for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.

    We aimed to investigate mechanical properties of Achilles' tendon autograft after ovine anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Mature three female ovine were used in this study. In each ovine, the right knee underwent anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. They were sacrificed at 13 weeks after surgery. In each ovine, both the knees were harvested, and the left knee was used to obtain the data of the native anterior cruciate ligament. Drawer test for stability evaluation and tensile test for evaluation of mechanical properties were performed. The knee was mounted on a jig with 5 degrees of freedom for tensile testing, four cycles of anterior-posterior shear loads (50 N) were applied to the knee at 30°, 60° and 90° of the flexion with a cross head speed set at 20 mm/min. The displacement of the femur relative to tibia was defined as the anterior-posterior translation of the knee. (1) Stress relaxation test (5 N, 10 min), (2) cyclic load test (0-50 N, 10 cycles, 10 mm/min), and (3) tensile test (300 mm/min) were performed in turn. Before each testing, tissue cross-sectional area was measured with the device using a laser displacement sensor. At 13 weeks after the implantation, the anterior-posterior translation of the reconstructed knee was greater than native anterior cruciate ligament. Ultimate strength and maximum Young's modulus of the femur-graft-tibia complex were smaller than native anterior cruciate ligament. These testing methods presented here is effective to gain insight into in vivo biomechanical remodeling of reconstructed tissues.

    Off-pump CABG surgery requires high level of techniques. The surgeon must complete the anastomosis of two millimeter wide arteries within ten minutes on beating condition. Due to its difficulty, an effective training platform of DRY LAB with assessments is in strong need. This study investigated the models of anastomosis configurations and a relationship between the model and the energy loss (EL) using a beating heart simulator (BEAT, EBM) and coronary artery model (YOUCAN, EBM) which were developed from this research. The models for the analysis were chosen based on the actual EL; low (X: 42 μW), medium (Y: 196 μW) and high (Z: 362 μW) values. The effective cross-sectional areas were set by taking the cross-sectional areas from the mainstreams. The calculated EL was calculated using Hagen-Poiseuille because energy loss is inversely proportional to the square of the minimum effective cross-sectional area in a Hagen-Poiseuille flow. Results indicated that the change of the velocity distribution of the area in Y and Z were greater than those in X. The minimum effective cross-sectional areas were 2.1 mm^2 (X), 1.2 mm^2 (Y), 0.8 mm^2 (Z). Therefore, it was confirmed that mainstream could not utilize the anastomosis configuration efficiently in Y and Z. In addition, it was found that the calculated EL and the actual EL had a strong correlation, and the minimum effective cross-sectional area influenced the actual EL strongly.

    Cerebral revascularization is a general surgery for vascular lesions. Operative procedures are decided based on surgeon's experience, however unpredictable complications are still a problem. The aim of our study is to predict complications before operation by identifying the mechanism of cerebral hemodynamics adaptations. It is considered that blood flow is regulated for meeting demand of tissue cells. There is a little study about the relationship between blood flow in cerebral arteries and cerebral demand. In this study, the total of flow rate in both sides internal carotid arteries and basilar artery is 'supply blood flow', and gray matter volume (V_G) and white matter volume (V_W) are multiplied by each literature cerebral blood flow (k_G, k_W) to calculate 'demand blood flow' (V_G・K_G+V_W・K_W). For 14 healthy volunteers and 2 patients (aneurysm and ischemic), the ratio of difference between demand and supply blood flow on the basis of supply values are studied. As the result, difference between supply blood flow and demand blood flow is -11.3% in healthy subjects. In a case of aneurysm, difference rate is low before and after surgery. In a case of ischemic, there is a high difference rate (59.1%). However, difference becomes lower (12.1%) by supply blood flow increase after operation. It is suggested that difference rate is available for diagnosis of ischemic.

    Thrombus formations in medical devices are unsolved issue. If a reliable in vitro real-time visualization method is established, it will contribute the development and improvement of anti-thrombogenic medical devices. The aim of this study is to develop a real-time thrombus visualization system with an optical coherence tomography (OCT) and to reveal an influence of local blood flow on thrombus growth. We focus on the inlet and outlet part of connecters. The circuit was consisted of a roller pump, a reservoir, and resistance. The circuit volume was 50 ml. The blood flow rate and pressure were regulated to 100 ml/min and 70 mmHg. To visualize cross-sectional imaging of thrombus, we used a SS-OCT system with center wave-length of 1330 nm. OCT images were obtained every 10 minutes for 50 minutes. Test were performed 6 times. A fresh porcine whole blood with activated clotting time of approximately 200 sec was circulated. Thrombus-formed area increased with time at the outlet part of the connecter, however, the thrombus-formed area didn't increase at the inlet part. The part where thrombus-formed are increased was related to a flow-separation area. Flow-separation would be a cause to form such an increasingly thrombus. We revealed that the local blood flow is important not only for thrombus formation but also stability of thrombus-formed at the connecter.

    We aimed to develop a calcified aortic valve model for the evaluation of paravalvular leak of a transcatheter aortic valve. We fabricated a calcified aortic valve model using silicone based on a CT image of the pre-operation of the patient who received treatment with a transcatheter aortic valve. In addition, we fabricated a thoracic aorta model and an abdominal aorta model because these three dimensional morphology would affect the insertion procedure of the transcatheter valve. These models were installed into a chamber, and the other space of the models were filled with a glycerol solution with the refractive index and viscosity of 1.410±0.002 and 5.96 mPa・s respectively, in order to adjust the expansion rate of the valve annulus and to measure the expansion range by a lazer system in pulsatile flow and pressure environments. Using the test system, the maximum and minimum cross-sectional area of the valve annulus in systole and diastole in the pulsatile flow circuit could be adjusted to these in the referenced patients' data. The pulsatile flow system with patient specific aortic valve, thoracic aorta and abdominal aorta model would be useful to quantify the paravalvular leak performance of the transcatheter aortic valve.

In the case of deep tissue injury (DTI), it is difficult to predict where tissue breakdown will occur, as it initiates from tissues under the skin. In this paper, a new methodology to assess the risk of DTI using a compliant buttock dummy is proposed. The dummy is composed of pelvis model with six-axis force sensors and silicone rubber covering it to imitate the anatomical form of a human buttock. Six-axis force sensors attached to the pelvis model enable the measurement of external forces and moments during the sitting posture and estimate points of action on bony prominences such as ischial tuberosities by an algorithm. Experiments have been performed to test the accuracy of position estimation by placing point load on the bony prominences model. Next, the relationship between external forces and internal pressure has been confirmed by adhering pressure sensors on the surface of rigid models covered by soft materials. The results suggested the potential of the proposed dummy for the assessment tool of DTI risk.

     View Summary

    In this paper, we present a general, fibril-based structural constitutive theory which accounts for three material aspects of crosslinked filamentous materials: the single fibrillar force response, the fibrillar network model, and the effects of alterations to the fibrillar network. In the case of the single fibrillar response, we develop a formula that covers the entropic and enthalpic deformation regions, and introduce the relaxation phase to explain the observed force decay after crosslink breakage. For the filamentous network model, we characterize the constituent element of the fibrillar network in terms its end-to-end distance vector and its contour length, then decompose the vector orientation into an isotropic random term and a specific alignment, paving the way for an expanded formalism from principal deformation to general 3D deformation
    and, more important, we define a critical core quantity over which macroscale mechanical characteristics can be integrated: the ratio of the initial end-to-end distance to the contour length (and its probability function). For network alterations, we quantitatively treat changes in constituent elements and relate these changes to the alteration of network characteristics. Singular in its physical rigor and clarity, this constitutive theory can reproduce and predict a wide range of nonlinear mechanical behavior in materials composed of a crosslinked filamentous network, including: stress relaxation (with dual relaxation coefficients as typically observed in soft tissues)
    hysteresis with decreasing maximum stress under serial cyclic loading
    strain-stiffening under uniaxial tension
    the rupture point of the structure as a whole
    various effects of biaxial tensile loading
    strain-stiffening under simple shearing
    the so-called "negative normal stress" phenomenon
    and enthalpic elastic behaviors of the constituent element. Applied to compacted collagen gels, the theory demonstrates that collagen fibrils behave as enthalpic elasticas with linear elasticity within the gels, and that the macroscale nonlinearity of the gels originates from the curved fibrillar network. Meanwhile, the underlying factors that determine the mechanical properties of the gels are clarified. Finally, the implications of this study on the enhancement of the mechanical properties of compacted collagen gels and on the cellular mechanics with this model tissue are discussed.

  • Time Course of Cell Sheet Adhesion to Porcine Heart Tissue after Transplantation

    Dehua Chang, Tatsuya Shimizu, Yuji Haraguchi, Shuai Gao, Katsuhisa Sakaguchi, Mitsuo Umezu, Masayuki Yamato, Zhongmin Liu, Teruo Okano

     View Summary

    Multilayered cell sheets have been produced from bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for investigating their adhesion properties onto native porcine heart tissue. Once MSCs reached confluence after a 7-day culture on a temperature-responsive culture dish, a MSCs monolayer spontaneously detached itself from the dish, when the culture temperature was reduced from 37 to 20 degrees C. The basal extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins of the single cell sheet are preserved, because this technique requires no proteolytic enzymes for harvesting cell sheet, which become a basic building block for assembling a multilayer cell sheet. The thickness of multilayered cell sheets made from three MSC sheets was found to be approximately 60 mu m. For investigating the adhesion properties of the basal and apical sides, the multilayered cell sheets were transplanted onto the surface of the heart's left ventricle. Multilayered cell sheets were histological investigated at 15, 30, 45 and 60 minutes after transplantation by hematoxylin eosin (HE) and azan dyes to determine required time for the adhesion of the multilayered sheets following cell-sheet transplantation. The results showed that only the basal side of multilayered cell sheets significantly enhanced the sheets adhesion onto the surface of heart 30 minutes after transplantation. This study concluded that (1) cell sheets had to be transplanted with its basal side onto the surface of heart tissue and (2) at least 30 minutes were necessary for obtaining the histological adhesion of the sheets to the heart tissue. This study provided clinical evidence and parameters for the successful application of MSC sheets to the myocardium and allowed cell sheet technology to be adapted clinical cell-therapy for myocardial diseases.

    © 2015 IEEE. In order to differentiate pluripotent stem cells to cardiomyocytes, the most general method is to expose stem cells to various growth factors related to cardiogenesis. However, a novel method has been reported to induce cardiac differentiation of human ES cells without supplemental growth factors by culturing embryoid body of human ES cells in hybrid gels composed of cardiac extracellular matrix (ECM) and type I collagen. On the other hand, mechanical properties of scaffold is one of the critical cue for differentiation of stem cells. However, it has not been thoroughly investigated the mechanical properties of the scaffold made from cardiac ECM in view of this and other reports about the differentiation of stem cells into cardiomyocytes using cardiac ECM scaffold. In this study, we fabricated bio-hydrogels composed of goat ventricular extracellular matrix, and investigated the mechanical properties by means of uniaxial compression test. It showed that the ECM gels possess viscoelastic property. The elastic modulus K1 in modified non-linear Kelvin model is 9.5 Pa for these gels and K2 is 814.7 Pa. Moreover, we were able to improve the elastic moduli K1 and K2 up to 139.7 Pa and 2023.9 Pa, respectively, by chemical treatment using EDAC.

    © 2015 IEEE. Quantitatively analyze the characteristics of intraventricular flow is critical for the diagnosis of congenital heart disease (CHD). Although several techniques are applied in clinic currently, the information which they provided is not satisfied with the requirement of the therapies of CHD. Here, we introduced the method of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to investigate the intraventricular hemodynamics using a reconstructed model of left ventricle (LV) based on cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) images. A large, counterclockwise, vortex was observed. It persisted in the periods of slow filling phase and atrial contraction phase in diastole. A smaller vortex was found around the outflow tract. An annular vortex is formed in the base region downstream of the mitral orifice. The vortices vanished quickly at the end-diastole. These results indicate the technique of CFD is a promising tool which can be used to evaluate the hemodynamics in LV. Understanding the characteristics of intraventricular flow is helpful for the improvement of CHD.

    © 2015 IEEE. In this paper, we exhibit a novel asymmetric bifurcating microchannel for cell separation by size. As developing this microchannel, we proposed the design and optimization criteria, which included the design of inlet and outlet based on the analysis of the Segre-Silberberg effect and the optimization principle to render the migration force at the bifurcation portion as great as possible. Experiments using rat fibroblasts and red blood cells verified these design principles and confirmed the separation function with the optimal design. The simple configuration of the microchannel makes it feasible to serialize several such microchannels within 1.0×1.0 mm2 space and to achieve enrichment rate as high as 103∼104 folds.

     View Summary

    © 2015 IEEE. To preserve the controlled antegrade pulmonary blood flow (APBF) is one of contentious issues in the procedure of bidirectional cavopulmonary anastomosis (BCPA) for the treatment of single-ventricle physiology. Here, we reported our patient-specific researches of the controlled APBF on local hemodynamics of pulmonary artery by using the techniques of computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Computer-aided design was employed to create a vascular model without the APBF based on the three-dimensional pulmonary geometry of a patient. We defined several indexes to quantitatively evaluate the effects of the APBF. The results show an obvious elevation of local static pressure, WSS and energy loss. This indicates the local hemodynamics is greatly influenced by the pulsatile blood flow. The controlled APBF may benefit subsequent Fontan procedure.

    © 2015 IEEE. The systemic-to-pulmonary artery shunt is an effective procedure widely used in the therapy of congenital heart defect (CHD). To better understand the local flow features may provide hemodynamic information for patient-specific surgical design. Here, we report on three-dimensional (3D) hemodynamic analysis of two schemes of this procedure; the modified Blalock-Taussig shunt (MBTS) and Melbourne shunt. A patient-specific 3D model after the MBTS was reconstructed. We applied the technique of computer-aided design (CAD) to virtually create a model of Melbourne shunt based on vascular anatomical position. Pressure drop, wall shear stress (WSS), streamlines and blood flow distribution ratio were calculated by computational fluid dynamics (CFD). We found more blood distribution and high pressure were observed at pulmonary artery in Melbourne shunt. This indicates to control the balance of blood flow distributed to systemic and pulmonary circulation small size shunt will be more favorable in the procedure of Melbourne shunt. The choice of surgery schemes for patient-specific surgery can be done by the analysis local hemodynamics.

    © 2015 IEEE. Coarctation of the aorta (CoA) is one of the most common congenital cardiac anomalies that could be corrected by surgery. However, the effects of surgical anastomosis on aortic arch flow are still unknown. In this study, a unique three-dimensional way was utilized to measure the growth of anastomotic site and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) was applied to investigate the hemodynamic effects of the growth of anastomosis site on patient-specific aortic arch flow before, 1 year and 2 years after surgery. The volume of anastomotic site, distribution of total pressure, wall shear stress (WSS), streamlines, energy efficiency and flow distribution ratio were calculated. The results indicated that the volume of anastomotic site has grown at 2-year follow-up. The total pressure and WSS were more uniformly distributed, whereas the three branches of aortic arch showed varying degrees of hypoperfusion. Energy efficiency increased obviously as the growth of anastomotic site. Our results implied that the numerical methods can be applied to evaluate the long-term effects of anastomosis site growth on aortic arch flow.

     View Summary

    © 2015 IEEE. Long segment congenital tracheal stenosis (LSCTS) is one of most severe malformation with high mortality rate and dismal prospective. Hypoventilation is the main issue for the death of children with LSCTS after surgical correction. However, currently, little information is available on local aerodynamics to disclose the reasons for the improvement of such therapies, especially LSCTS with distal bronchus stenoses. Here, we investigated a patient-specific model of LSCTS with complete tracheal rings and bridging bronchus (BB). Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) was applied to analyze the local aerodynamics around BB before and after tracheal surgery in inspiratory phase and expiratory phase. Average pressure drop, wall shear stress, streamlines and energy loss were calculated to evaluate the surgical outcomes. The results indicate the airflow at the trachea and BB become more turbulent in expiration phase than that in inspiration phase. The turbulence increases the workloads of respiration in expiration phase. It should be the cause for postoperative hypoventilation. To study the local aerodynamics is helpful for the improvement of surgical therapies of the LSCTS.

    JOURNAL OF MECHANICS IN MEDICINE AND BIOLOGY   15 ( 3 )  2015.06  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Modified Blalock-Taussig (mB-T) shunt is an effective palliative surgical method in the treatment of cyanotic congenital heart diseases. Although the surgical technique has improved over the years, it is still a challenge to control appropriate blood flow through the conduit. The formation of thrombosis in the conduit after the mB-T shunt may lead to severe desaturation or reoperation in some cases. Here, we applied the method of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to study a patient-specific case based on medical images after the mB-T shunt. The real-time velocities derived from echocardiography and the pulsatile pressure waves measured during the operation were utilized as boundary conditions to physiologically capture the blood flow information in simulation. The calculated results were coincident with clinical measurements. Local pressure, blood flow distribution, streamlines, wall shear stress (WSS) and centrifugal force in the bended conduit were investigated. The results indicate that pressure decreases greatly through the conduit. The combined action of pulsatile pressure and WSS may lead to the damage of blood cells. The computational hemodynamics can be applied in future studies of establishing quantitative standards to evaluate surgical outcomes of the mB-T shunt.

     View Summary

    In this seminar, I discuss three types of applied research in which collaborations between biomedical engineers and medical doctors can advance the surgical field of vascular grafting. First, I describe a mock circulatory system designed to simulate regional hemodynamics and input impedance in the human aorta. This circuit can estimate the cardiac work that results from implanting or replacing a synthetic aortic graft. Simulation shows that replacement of an aortic graft made of silicone rubber with one made of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) increases cardiac work significantly. Second, I show how technology originally developed for neurosurgical navigation can be applied to the replacement of a thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm with a PTFE graft. Here, a registration method combines visual relationships between the real operative space and a three-dimensional space constructed from images obtained by computed tomography. The system employs a phantom thoraco-abdominal artery to accurately locate the Adamkiewicz artery that often, but not always, arises from a left inferior intercostal artery. To date, this navigation system has contributed to the surgical success of eighty-six aortic grafts. Third, I introduce a computational fluid dynamic (CFD) program to predict the distribution of blood flow in a three-branch graft during thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). Phase-contrast magnetic resonance angiography image (PC-MRI) of the blood flow distribution determines the initial conditions in patients and healthy individuals. Calculations show a permissible 3% decrease in flow in the descending aorta after surgical endovascular debranching. Finally, I emphasize the importance of educating and training new leaders of Medical Regulatory Science to achieve a true engineering-medical collaboration at Tokyo Women's and Waseda University Joint Institution for Advances Biomedical Sciences.

Simulation shows that replacement of an aortic graft made of silicone rubber with one made of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) increases cardiac work significantly. Second, I show how technology originally developed for neurosurgical navigation can be applied to the replacement of a thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm with a PTFE graft. Here, a registration method combines visual relationships between the real operative space and a three-dimensional space constructed from images obtained by computed tomography. The system employs a phantom thoraco-abdominal artery to accurately locate the Adamkiewicz artery that often, but not always, arises from a left inferior intercostal artery. To date, this navigation system has contributed to the surgical success of eighty-six aortic grafts. Third, I introduce a computational fluid dynamic (CFD) program to predict the distribution of blood flow in a three-branch graft during thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). Phase-contrast magnetic resonance angiography image (PC-MRI) of the blood flow distribution determines the initial conditions in patients and healthy individuals. Calculations show a permissible 3% decrease in flow in the descending aorta after surgical endovascular debranching. Finally, I emphasize the importance of educating and training new leaders of Medical Regulatory Science to achieve a true engineering-medical collaboration at Tokyo Women's and Waseda University Joint Institution for Advances Biomedical Sciences.

    Increased vascular permeability is a hallmark of inflammation accompanying tumor progression and diabetic retinopathy. For applying to anti-inflammatory drug testing and screening, we have newly developed an in vitro 3D microvasculature model to evaluate vascular permeability. In this model, we could measure and calculate extravasation pattern of FITCdextran fluorescence and determine endothelial barrier changes in response to thrombin, a known pro-inflammatory protease.

     View Summary

    BACKGROUND: We conducted in vivo examinations of a newly designed stentless mitral valve (SMV), formed by suturing 2 leaflets with the "legs" serving as chorda tendinea, made from bovine pericardium, to a flexible ring. METHODS AND RESULTS: Seven pigs underwent implantation of the SMV constructed with a 23-mm (n=5) or 25-mm (n=2) Duran ring. Baseline echocardiography examinations were used to evaluate the annular anteroposterior diameter, and distance between the mitral annulus (MA) and papillary muscles (PMs) to determine SMV-leg length. After removing the native valve, the SMV-legs were fixed to the anterior and posterior PMs, followed by fixation of the ring to the native MA. Immediately after surgery, all animals presented none or trivial mitral regurgitation, with mean and peak trans-SMV pressure gradient values of 1.9±0.8 and 6.0±3.1 mmHg, respectively. The mean length of the SMV-leg was 19.4±3.9 mm, which correlated with the distance between anterior and posterior MA-PM (r=0.96 and 0.94, respectively, P<0.01 for both). The discrepancy between the anteroposterior diameter of the ring (outside diameter) and that of the native valve was 1.0±2.9 mm, which correlated with the trans-SMV pressure gradient (r=0.81, P=0.025). CONCLUSIONS: In our preliminary study, the SMV demonstrated excellent diastolic inflow dynamics and closing function in vivo. Preoperative precise assessment of MV configuration may serve as a basis for selection of appropriate ring size and SMV-leg length.

     View Summary

    Thrombogenic reactions under multiple interactions of pharmacological agents, doses, and materials have not been well understood yet. The aim of this study was to investigate the ability to simultaneously compare thrombogenic reactions to different combinations of anticoagulants, doses, and blood-contacting materials, in a single human blood using an in vitro test method. Four venous blood samples were drawn from each of six healthy volunteers into syringes that contained two different amounts of heparin and argatroban to set the activated clotting time (ACT) to approximately 200 or 500 s, respectively. The four blood samples from each volunteer were immediately poured into two clinical-grade extracorporeal circulation tubes: a polyvinyl chloride (PVC) tube and a poly(2-methoxyethyl acrylate)-coated (PMEA) PVC tube. These tubes with an inner diameter of 12.7 mm were rotated at 183 rpm in a 37 degrees C chamber for 10 min. The results indicated that the in vitro thrombogenicity test method was capable of assessing differences in platelet factor 4 and beta-thromboglobulin increases among different combinations of the two materials, two anticoagulants, and two ACTs. Higher amounts of total plasma proteins were absorbed on PVC tubes than on PMEA-coated tubes when using the same anticoagulant and dose. These data elucidate that the in vitro thrombogenicity test method is useful for the simultaneous quantitative evaluation of the influences of various combinations of materials, pharmacological agents, and doses on thrombogenicity in a single human blood.

    In this study, we investigated the expression of the pathway, SRF-microRNA-1/microRNA-133a-Hand2, in the Wistar rat embryonic ventricular cardiomyocytes under conventional monolayer culture. The morphological observation of the cultured cardiomyocytes and the mRNA expression levels of three vital constituent proteins, MLC-2v, N-cadherin, and connexin43, demonstrated the immaturity of these cultured cells, which was featured by less myofibril density, immature sarcomeric structure, and significantly lower mRNA expression of the three constituent proteins than those in neonatal ventricular samples. More importantly, results in this study suggest that the change of SRF-microRNA-1/microRNA-133a-Hand2 pathway results into the attenuation of the Hand2 repression in cultured cardiomyocytes. These outcomes are valuable to understand the cellular state as embryonic cardiomyocytes to be in vitro model and might be useful for the assessment of engineered cardiac tissue and cardiac differentiation of stem cells.

     View Summary

    Fibroblast-mediated compaction of collagen gels attracts extensive attention in studies of wound healing, cellular fate processes, and regenerative medicine. However, the underlying mechanism and the cellular mechanical niche still remain obscure. This study examines the mechanical behaviour of collagen fibrils during the process of compaction from an alternative perspective on the primary mechanical interaction, providing a new viewpoint on the behaviour of populated fibroblasts. We classify the collagen fibrils into three types bent, stretched, and adherent and deduce the respective equations governing the mechanical behaviour of each type; in particular, from a putative principle based on the stationary state of the instantaneous Hamiltonian of the mechanotransduction system, we originally quantify the stretching force exerted on each stretched fibrils. Via careful verification of a structural elementary model based on this classification, we demonstrate a clear physical picture of the compaction process, quantitatively elucidate the panorama of the micro mechanical niche and reveal an intrinsic biphasic relationship between cellular traction force and matrix elasticity. Our results also infer the underlying mechanism of tensional homoeostasis and stress shielding of fibroblasts. With this study, and sequel investigations on the putative principle proposed herein, we anticipate a refocus of the research on cellular mechanobiology, in vitro and in vivo. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

     View Summary

    Cerebrovascular anastomosis (for example in the management of Moyamoya disease or complex aneurysms) is a rarely performed but essential procedure in neurosurgery. Because of the complexity of this technique and the infrequent clinical opportunities to maintain skills relevant to this surgery, laboratory training is important to develop a consistent and competent performance of cerebrovascular anastomosis. We reviewed the literature pertaining to the training practices surrounding cerebrovascular anastomosis in order to understand the ways in which trainees should best develop these skills. A wide variety of training methods have been described. These may be classified into five general categories, according to training materials used, being synthetic material, living animal, animal carcass, human cadaver, and computer simulation. Ideally, a novice begins training with non-biological material. After gaining sufficient dexterity, the trainee will be able to practice using biological materials followed by high fidelity models prior to actual surgery. Unfortunately, the effectiveness of each model has generally, to our knowledge, only been judged subjectively. Objective quantification methods are necessary to accelerate the acquisition of competence. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Via careful verification of a structural elementary model based on this classification, we demonstrate a clear physical picture of the compaction process, quantitatively elucidate the panorama of the micro mechanical niche and reveal an intrinsic biphasic relationship between cellular traction force and matrix elasticity. Our results also infer the underlying mechanism of tensional homoeostasis and stress shielding of fibroblasts. With this study, and sequel investigations on the putative principle proposed herein, we anticipate a refocus of the research on cellular mechanobiology, in vitro and in vivo.

    Surgical training technology for cerebrovascular anastomosis.   21 ( 4 )  2014

     View Summary

    :Cerebrovascular anastomosis (for example in the management of Moyamoya disease or complex aneurysms) is a rarely performed but essential procedure in neurosurgery. Because of the complexity of this technique and the infrequent clinical opportunities to maintain skills relevant to this surgery, laboratory training is important to develop a consistent and competent performance of cerebrovascular anastomosis. We reviewed the literature pertaining to the training practices surrounding cerebrovascular anastomosis in order to understand the ways in which trainees should best develop these skills. A wide variety of training methods have been described. These may be classified into five general categories, according to training materials used, being synthetic material, living animal, animal carcass, human cadaver, and computer simulation. Ideally, a novice begins training with non-biological material. After gaining sufficient dexterity, the trainee will be able to practice using biological materials followed by high fidelity models prior to actual surgery. Unfortunately, the effectiveness of each model has generally, to our knowledge, only been judged subjectively. Objective quantification methods are necessary to accelerate the acquisition of competence.

    The Japanese medical device industry's stagnation over the years can be attributed to the uncertainty related to device development. The purpose of this study is to identify the major factors that impact development. We studied the ventricular assist device EVAHEART through interviews with the persons involved and created a development model using system dynamics. There are at least six stages in the device development process, including interactions with academia and the government. Through a simulation and comparison to Novacor, it was determined that the satisfaction of academia leads to government action in the subsequent measures. Our trial simulation of EVAHEART suggests that it has the potential to clarify unclear relationships in the development of devices. © 2013 The Japanese Society for Artificial Organs.

  • Numerical analysis of blood flow distribution in 4-and 3-branch vascular grafts

     View Summary

    Trifurcated arch grafts (3-branch grafts) are now being used to repair the thoracic aorta in addition to conventional arch grafts (4-branch grafts). The anatomical shape of the 3-branch graft is different from the original vessel, so it is necessary for clinical application to evaluate blood flow distribution in the graft to assess whether there is adequate blood flow to the target organs. To achieve this, we developed a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) method to evaluate blood flow distribution in the grafts. Aortic blood flow was measured by phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (PC-MRI), and flow distribution into the branched vessels was obtained. The MRI image was used to create a patient-specific image model that represents the geometry of the aortic arch. The CFD analysis method was employed to determine a boundary condition of the blood flow analysis in the aorta using a patient-specific image model. We also created simplified models of 4-branch and 3-branch grafts and used our CFD analysis method to compare blood flow distribution among simplified models. It was found that blood flow distribution in the descending aorta was 71.3 % for the 4-branch graft and 67.7 % for the 3-branch graft, indicating that a sum of branching flow in the 3-branch graft was almost the same as the one in the 4-branch graft. Therefore, there is no major concern about implanting a new 3-branch graft. Our CFD analysis method may be applied to estimate blood flow distribution of a newly developed vascular graft prior to its clinical use and provide useful information for safe use of the graft.

  • Experimental insights into flow impingement in cerebral aneurysm by stereoscopic particle image velocimetry: transition from a laminar regime

     View Summary

    This study experimentally investigated the instability of flow impingement in a cerebral aneurysm, which was speculated to promote the degradation of aneurysmal wall. A patient-specific, full-scale and elastic-wall replica of cerebral artery was fabricated from transparent silicone rubber. The geometry of the aneurysm corresponded to that found at 9 days before rupture. The flow in a replica was analysed by quantitative flow visualization (stereoscopic particle image velocimetry) in a three-dimensional, high-resolution and time-resolved manner. The mid-systolic and late-diastolic flows with a Reynolds number of 450 and 230 were compared. The temporal and spatial variations of near-wall velocity at flow impingement delineated its inherent instability at a low Reynolds number. Wall shear stress (WSS) at that site exhibited a combination of temporal fluctuation and spatial divergence. The frequency range of fluctuation was found to exceed significantly that of the heart rate. The high-frequency-fluctuating WSS appeared only during mid-systole and disappeared during late diastole. These results suggested that the flow impingement induced a transition from a laminar regime. This study demonstrated that the hydrodynamic instability of shear layer could not be neglected even at a low Reynolds number. No assumption was found to justify treating the aneurysmal haemodynamics as a fully viscous laminar flow.

  • Proposition of an outflow boundary approach for carotid artery stenosis CFD simulation

    COMPUTER METHODS IN BIOMECHANICS AND BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING   16 ( 5 ) 488 - 494  2013.05  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    The purpose of this study was to propose an innovative approach of setting outlet boundary conditions for the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation of human common carotid arteries (CCAs) bifurcation based on the concept of energy loss minimisation at flow bifurcation. Comparisons between this new approach and previously reported boundary conditions were also made. The results showed that CFD simulation based on the proposed boundary conditions gave an accurate prediction of the critical stenosis ratio of carotid arteries (at around 65%). Other boundary conditions, such as the constant external pressure (P=0) and constant outflow ratio, either overestimated or underestimated the critical stenosis ratio of carotid arteries. The patient-specific simulation results furthermore indicated that the calculated internal carotid artery flow ratio at CCA bifurcation (61%) coincided with the result obtained by clinical measurements through the use of Colour Doppler ultrasound.

    In vitro scaling up of bioengineered tissues is known to be limited by diffusion issues, specifically a lack of vasculature. Here, we report a new strategy for preserving cell viability in three-dimensional tissues using cell sheet technology and a perfusion bioreactor having collagen-based microchannels. When triple-layer cardiac cell sheets are incubated within this bioreactor, endothelial cells in the cell sheets migrate to vascularize in the collagen gel, and finally connect with the microchannels. Medium readily flows into the cell sheets through the microchannels and the newly developed capillaries, while the cardiac construct shows simultaneous beating. When additional triple-layer cell sheets are repeatedly layered, new multi-layer construct spontaneously integrates and the resulting construct becomes a vascularized thick tissue. These results confirmed our method to fabricate in vitro vascularized tissue surrogates that overcomes engineered-tissue thickness limitations. The surrogates promise new therapies for damaged organs as well as new in vitro tissue models.

    SCIENTIFIC WORLD JOURNAL   2013Artikle ID 131597  2013  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Total cavopulmonary connection (TCPC), a typical kind of Fontan procedure, is commonly used in the treatment of a functional single ventricle. The palliative cardiothoracic procedure is performed by connecting the superior vena cava and the inferior vena cava to the pulmonary arteries. Due to the difficulty of direct study in vivo, in this paper, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) was introduced to estimate the outcomes of patient-specific TCPC configuration. We mainly focused on the influence of blood pulsation and respiration. Fast Fourier transforms method was employed to separate the measured flow conditions into the rate of breath and heart beat. Blood flow performance around the TCPC connection was investigated by analyzing the results of time-varying energy losses, blood flow distribution rate, local pressure, and wall shear stress distributions. It was found that the value of energy loss including the influence of respiration was 1.5 times higher than the value of energy loss disregarding respiratory influences. The results indicated that the hemodynamic outcomes of TCPC treatment are obviously influenced by respiration. The influence of respiration plays an important role in estimating the results of TCPC treatment and thus should be included as one of the important conditions of computational haemodynamic analysis.

     View Summary

    In vitro fabrication of functional vascularized three-dimensional tissues has been a long-standing objective in the field of tissue engineering. Here we report a technique to engineer cardiac tissues with perfusable blood vessels in vitro. Using resected tissue with a connectable artery and vein as a vascular bed, we overlay triple-layer cardiac cell sheets produced from coculture with endothelial cells, and support the tissue construct with media perfused in a bioreactor. We show that endothelial cells connect to capillaries in the vascular bed and form tubular lumens, creating in vitro perfusable blood vessels in the cardiac cell sheets. Thicker engineered tissues can be produced in vitro by overlaying additional triple-layer cell sheets. The vascularized cardiac tissues beat and can be transplanted with blood vessel anastomoses. This technique may create new opportunities for in vitro tissue engineering and has potential therapeutic applications.

  • Clinical Results of Three-Time-Balloon-Inflation Method Performed in Elective PCI Cases

    BME   51 ( 6 ) 350 - 356  2013

     View Summary

    Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ischemic heart disease became a common therapy. The improvement of treatment results was caused by invention of drug-eluting stent (DES) but its implantation procedure for pressure and inflation time has not been discussed. 3-time-balloon-inflation method is proved to be an effective method for inflation in in vitro experiments and it was practiced in the clinical field. The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of the 3-time-balloon-inflation method and investigate the factors that cause suppression of stent expansion. From January 2011 to March 2012, PCI with drug-eluting stent (XIENCE V) were performed to 169 patients by a single-operator with 3-time-ballon-inflation method. Minimal lumen area (MLA), vessel cross-sectional area, and plaque cross-section in the MLA were measured by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) before stent implantation. Minimum stent area (MSA) was measured after stent implantation. Stent expansion ratio (SER) was calculated from assumed area and MSA. Area acquisition ratio (AAR) was calculated from MSA and MLA. Subsequently, the ratio of calcification in the lesion was measured using the color mapping function mounted on the IVUS. The stent diameter used in this study was 2.89±0.35[mm] (mean±SD), stent length was 20.5±6.2[mm] (mean±SD), and the stent expansion pressure was 10.3±2.4[atm] (mean±SD). There was no difference in SER by stent size, target vessels, and MLA. Significant difference was seen in the calcification ratio between the group without pre-dilatation (n=27) and the group with pre-dilatation (n=142), but no difference in SER between the two groups. It was suggested that calcification ratio is one of the factors that causes the suppression of stent expansion because significance of calcification ratio came out in AAR.

    Objectives: To determine (1) the proportion and number of clinically relevant alarms based on the type of monitoring device
    (2) whether patient clinical severity, based on the sequential organ failure assessment (SOFA) score, affects the proportion of clinically relevant alarms and to suggest
    (3) methods for reducing clinically irrelevant alarms in an intensive care unit (ICU). Design: A prospective, observational clinical study. Setting: A medical ICU at the University of Tokyo Hospital in Tokyo, Japan. Participants: All patients who were admitted directly to the ICU, aged ≥18 years, and not refused active treatment were registered between January and February 2012. Methods: The alarms, alarm settings, alarm messages, waveforms and video recordings were acquired in real time and saved continuously. All alarms were annotated with respect to technical and clinical validity. Results: 18 ICU patients were monitored. During 2697 patient-monitored hours, 11 591 alarms were annotated. Only 740 (6.4%) alarms were considered to be clinically relevant. The monitoring devices that triggered alarms the most often were the direct measurement of arterial pressure (33.5%), oxygen saturation (24.2%), and electrocardiogram (22.9%). The numbers of relevant alarms were 12.4% (direct measurement of arterial pressure), 2.4% (oxygen saturation) and 5.3% (electrocardiogram). Positive correlations were established between patient clinical severities and the proportion of relevant alarms. The total number of irrelevant alarms could be reduced by 21.4% by evaluating their technical relevance. Conclusions: We demonstrated that (1) the types of devices that alarm the most frequently were direct measurements of arterial pressure, oxygen saturation and ECG, and most of those alarms were not clinically relevant
    (2) the proportion of clinically relevant alarms decreased as the patients' status improved and (3) the irrelevance alarms can be considerably reduced by evaluating their technical relevance.

     View Summary

    Purpose: We have reconstructed aortic valves using autologous pericardium treated with glutaraldehyde since April 2007. However, the strength of the human pericardium has not been confirmed. We compared tensile strength between glutaraldehyde-treated human pericardium and aortic valve leaflets with various degrees of calcification to determine their suitability for use in aortic valve reconstruction.
    Methods: We measured the ultimate tensile strength and elasticity of samples of glutaraldehyde-treated pericardia (n = 8), non-calcified (n = 12), calcified (n = 9) and decalcified (n = 21) aortic leaflets collected from 23 patients who underwent aortic valve surgery. Aortic valves were decalcified using a cavitational ultrasonic surgical aspirator. The pericardium was immersed in 0.6% buffered glutaraldehyde for 10 minutes and then rinsed three times for 6 minutes each in normal saline.
    Results: The ultimate tensile strength of the glutaraldehyde-treated human pericardium, non-calcified, calcified and decalcified leaflets was 10, 2.8, 1.0 and 0.8 MPa, respectively.
    Conclusions: The ultimate tensile strength of glutaraldehyde-treated human pericardium was 4 times higher than non-calcified leaflets, indicating its suitability for application to aortic valve reconstruction. Calcified leaflets were slightly stronger than decalcified leaflets. Thus, calcification can be removed without altering the tensile strength of valve materials.

Several aortic arch reconstruction techniques have been reported to avoid recoarctation, ensure coronary perfusion, and improve long-term outcomes. Inside the arch, complicated turbulent flow is generated; however, little is known about the cause of the disadvantageous inefficient flow and the surgical techniques to avoid it.
    Methods: We created patient-specific computational hemodynamic models of 9 patients who underwent different types of arch reconstruction methods. Four patients had aortic atresia, and 5 patients had aortic stenosis. Flow profiles were defined by echocardiography data corrected with body surface area. Turbulent pulsatile flow was analyzed with the finite volume method. Flow energy loss was calculated to estimate cardiac workload, and wall shear stress was calculated to estimate vessel wall stiffness increase.
    Results: Recoarctation and acute arch angles increased wall shear stress and energy loss. In the patients with aortic atresia, a longitudinal incision toward the descending aorta was effective in creating a smooth arch angle. In the patients with aortic stenosis, arch repair with the Damus-Kaye-Stansel procedure in a single anastomotic site was effective in creating sufficient anastomosis space and a smooth arch angle.
    Conclusions: Creation of a large anastomotic space and a smooth aortic arch angle reduced wall shear stress and energy loss, and should improve long-term cardiac performance after the Norwood procedure. (J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2012;144:130-8)

    The fabrication of 3D tissues retaining the original functions of tissues/organs in vitro is crucial for optimal tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. The fabrication of 3D tissues also contributes to the establishment of in vitro tissue/organ models for drug screening. Our laboratory has developed a fabrication system for functional 3D tissues by stacking cell sheets of confluent cultured cells detached from a temperature-responsive culture dish. Here we describe the protocols for the fabrication of 3D tissues by cell sheet engineering. Three-dimensional cardiac tissues fabricated by stacking cardiac cell sheets pulsate spontaneously, synchronously and macroscopically. Via this protocol, it is also possible to fabricate other tissues, such as 3D tissue including capillary-like prevascular networks, from endothelial cells sandwiched between layered cell sheets. Cell sheet stacking technology promises to provide in vitro tissue/organ models and more effective therapies for curing tissue/organ failures.

     View Summary

    The purpose of this study was to examine the hemodynamic characteristics of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) pulmonary valves with bulging sinuses quantitatively in a pediatric pulmonary mechanical circulatory system designed by us, in order to propose the optimal design for clinical applications. In this study, we developed a pediatric pulmonary mock circulation system, which consisted of a pneumatic right ventricular model, a pulmonary heart valve chamber, and a pulmonary elastic compliance tubing with resistive units. The hemodynamic characteristics of four different types of ePTFE valves and a monoleaflet mechanical heart valve were examined. Relationships between the leaflet movements and fluid characteristics were evaluated based on engineering analyses using echocardiography and a high-speed video camera under the pediatric circulatory conditions of the mock system. We successfully performed hemodynamic simulations in our pediatric pulmonary circulatory system that could be useful for quantitatively evaluating the pediatric heart valves. In the simulation study, the ePTFE valve with bulging sinuses exhibited a large eddy in the vicinity of the leaflets, whereas the straight tubing exhibited turbulent flow. The Reynolds number obtained in the valve with bulging sinuses was calculated to be 1667, which was smaller than that in the straight tubing (R (e) = 2454).The hemodynamic characteristics of ePTFE pediatric pulmonary heart valves were examined in our mock circulatory system. The presence of the bulging sinuses in the pulmonary heart valve decreased the hydrodynamic energy loss and increased the systolic opening area. Based on an in vitro experiment, we were able to propose an optimal selection of pulmonary valve design parameters that could yield a more sophisticated pediatric ePTFE valve shape.

    Assessment of a novel stentless mitral valve using a pulsatile mitral valve simulator.   21 ( 1 )  2012  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY:The study aim was to develop a novel stentless mitral valve (SMV) and to evaluate its performance, using an original pulsatile simulator developed specifically to analyze the hydrodynamic function of the mitral valve.;METHODS:The SMV developed at the authors' institution consists of two major components: a large anterior leaflet with commissures, and a small posterior leaflet. The valve is formed by suturing the leaflets (made from bovine pericardium) to a flexible (Duran) ring. The SMV, constructed with a 27 mm flexible ring, was installed into the mitral valve simulator, after which the four papillary flaps of the two leaflets were sutured to artificial papillary muscles. The artificial ventricle was driven pneumatically at a pulse rate of 70 beats/min, with a systolic fraction of 35%. The mean flow, aortic pressure, and atrial pressure were adjusted to 4.5 1/min, 120/80 mmHg, and 10 mmHg, respectively. A 27 mm mechanical valve (MEV; St. Jude Medical Inc.) was employed as a control. The hydrodynamic performance of the SMV and MEV were investigated and compared. An echo-Doppler study was also performed.;RESULTS:The waveforms of the SMV and MEV showed a similar pattern. The mean transvalvular flow was 4.7 +/- 0.4 1/min for the SMV, and 3.55 +/- 0.13 1/min for the MEV (p < 0.001). Mitral regurgitation was 5.07 +/- 1.15 and 3.78 +/- 0.35 ml/beat, respectively (p < 0.05). Echocardiographic data indicated that the regurgitant jet towards the left atrial model was none or trivial for the SMV, and trivial for the MEV.;CONCLUSION:Within the environment of the mitral valve simulator, the novel SMV prepared from bovine pericardium demonstrated excellent performance characteristics, and may represent a potential future alternative for bioprosthetic stented mitral valves.

     View Summary

    Rectangular microchannels 50 mu m high and 30, 40, 50, 60, or 70 mu m wide were fabricated by adjusting the width of a gap cut in a polyethylene sheet 50 mu m thick and sandwiching the sheet between an acrylic plate and a glass plate. Flux in the microchannels was measured under three different inner surface conditions: uncoated, albumin-coated, and confluent growth of rat fibroblasts on the bottom of the microchannels. The normalized flux in microchannels with cultured fibroblasts or albumin coating was significantly larger than that in the uncoated channels. The experimental data for all microchannels deviated from that predicted by classical hydrodynamic theory. At small aspect ratio the flux in the microchannels was larger than that predicted theoretically, whereas it became smaller at large aspect ratio. The aspect ratio rather than Reynolds number is the correct property for predicting the variation of the normalized friction factor. We postulate that two counteracting effects, rotation of large molecules and slip velocity at the corners of the microchannels, are responsible for the deviation. From these results we conclude that albumin coating should be carried out in the same way as when fabricating our integrating cell-culture system. The outcomes of this study are not only important for the design of our culture system, but also quite informative for general microfluidics.

     View Summary

    Autologous tendons or bone-patellar tendon-bone grafts are clinically used for reconstruction of anterior cruciate ligaments, because of unsatisfactory durability of synthetic materials. The aims of this study are to realize decellularization of 16-cm long xenogeneic tendons which have a potential to guide regeneration, and to investigate influences of decellularization on tissue mechanical properties. Bovine tendons were decellularized by combination of pulsatile flow-and-pressure circulation of 1 wt% deoxycholic acid and microwave radiation. Then, the tissues were additionally treated with endonuclease. Influences of decellularization on durability was investigated by a cyclic tensile test under 0-100 N loads. When the tissues were not ruptured, ultimate strength, elastic modulus, and ultimate strain were examined by a uniaxial tensile test. DNA of 16-cm long bovine tendons was successfully removed over 99.99% by our decellularization technology. Non-treated and decellularized tendons were not ruptured in 1000 cycles' tensile durability tests. After the cyclic tests, ultimate stress, elastic modulus, and ultimate strain of the decellularized tendons were comparable to those of non-treated tendons. We here reported, to our knowledge, the first successful decellularization of 16-cm long tendons with preserving mechanical integrity.

     View Summary

    This study aimed to investigate "malignant hemodynamics" leading to induce the wall degradation of cerebral aneurysms in an effort to find out a reliable predictor as to which aneurysms were doomed to rupture. Two blister-holding aneurysms and two bleb-holding aneurysms were computationally analyzed and compared with those of aneurysmal appearances observed during operations. The results demonstrated that the sites of flow impingement and bifurcation were well correlated with those of blisters. Such a flow pattern was confirmed to be present at the neck of bleb. The inside of bleb was found to be dominated by weak regurgitation as a result of flow bifurcation. The possible scenario for the genesis and growth of bleb was proposed. Flow impingement was concluded to play a malignant role on aneurysmal wall degradation.

     View Summary

    A durability test of the implantable Left Ventricular Assist System EVAHEART was conducted to demonstrate that the EVAHEART Blood Pump can be run for 2 years without failing. This testing was useful to indicate potential for BTT and possibly DT applications. We developed a custom durability test mock circulation loop which generates a pulsatile flow simulating the native left ventricle. This mock circulation loop includes components which mimic the left ventricle (LV chamber) and compliance in the aorta (aortic column), and a loop which connects the blood pump to both the LV chamber (inlet) and the aortic column (outlet). The LV chamber has two one-way valves and a linear motor connected to a rolling seal, allowing it to generate pulsatile flow. The blood pump speed was tuned to achieve clinically relevant flow, based on the need to supplement a failing heart. The simulated heart rate (stroke rate of the linear actuator) cycled through 3 different settings each day to simulate changes in patient activity level. The sample size for the durability test was set to 18, and the test duration was 2 years. During the test, no critical blood pump failures were observed. There were no indications of significant decrease in pump performance or seal performance. Furthermore, no symptoms of failure, such as abnormal wear, were observed. In conclusion, the durability test successfully demonstrated that the EVAHEART Blood Pump achieved component reliability at a minimum of 90% reliability and 88% confidence interval over a mission life of two years.

     View Summary

    Modern imaging technologies, such as computed tomography (CT) angiography, magnetic resonance (MR) angiography, and digital subtraction (DS) angiography are widely used for pretreatment evaluation of cerebral aneurysms, but the relative accuracies of these modalities are unclear. This study compared the measurements of aneurysm neck and dome height and width on CT angiography, time-of-flight (TOF)-MR angiography, and DS angiography using a three-dimensional workstation. An elastic model of a side-wall aneurysm was connected to an artificial heart pulsatile circuit system. The aneurysm model was prepared using a silicone membrane of 0.6-mm thickness under normal physiological circulation parameters. Using this aneurysm model, three-dimensional TOF-MR angiography, contrast-enhanced CT angiography, and DS angiography were performed. Source images were post-processed on a dedicated workstation to calculate the aneurysm size. DS angiography measurements were found to be the most accurate. In contrast, aneurysm neck sizes measured on CT angiography were significantly wider than actual values (p &lt; 0.05) and aneurysm heights measured using TOF-MR angiography were significantly lower than actual values (p &lt; 0.01). In this in-vitro model, at least one aneurysm dimension measured with CT angiography and with TOF-MR angiography differed significantly from actual values. Aneurysm neck width markedly affects therapeutic planning, as a wide neck requires craniotomy or endovascular treatment using an adjunctive device, so inaccuracies should be considered when aneurysm treatment is planned using modern methods of visualization.

    To facilitate research and development (R&D) and to expedite the review processes of medical devices, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) founded a joint committee to establish guidance for newly emerging technology. From 2005 to 2007, two working groups held discussions on ventricular assist devices and total artificial hearts, including out-of-hospital programs, based on previous guidance documents and standards. Based on this discussion, the METI published the R&D Guidelines for innovative artificial hearts in 2007, and in 2008 the MHLW published a Notification by Director regarding the evaluation criteria for emerging technology.

  • Viscoelastic characteristics of contracted collagen gels populated with rat fibroblasts or cardiomyocytes

     View Summary

    The viscoelastic characteristics of contracted collagen gels populated with rat fibroblasts or cardiomyocytes were investigated by uniaxial tensile testing. Rat type I collagen-Dulbecco&apos;s modified Eagle&apos;s medium solution (each 2 ml in volume, 0.5 mg/ml collagen concentration) containing 2.0 million rat fibroblasts or cardiomyocytes were cast in a circular shape. After gelation and culture for 10 days the contracted gels were first stretched to a tensile strain of approximately 0.20 at 4.6 x 10(-3)/s strain rate, and then the strain was kept unchanged for 3 min. The tensile stress in the gels was recorded. The results were regressed against the equations of the Kelvin viscoelastic model. It was found that the two elastic coefficients in the model were 6.5 +/- A 1.7 and 10.2 +/- A 3.2 kPa, respectively, for gels with cardiomyocytes and 5.1 +/- A 1.6 and 4.5 +/- A 0.9 kPa for those with fibroblasts; the values for gels with cardiomyocytes were significantly higher than those for gels with fibroblasts. The viscous coefficient was 169.6 +/- A 60.7 kPa s for the cardiomyocytes and 143.6 +/- A 44.7 kPa s for the fibroblasts. The relaxation time constant for gels with cardiomyocytes was 19.6 +/- A 10.6 s, significantly smaller than for gels with fibroblasts (36.4 +/- A 13.3 s). This study is the first to obtain viscoelastic data for living cell-contracted collagen gels. These data show that the viscous effect has a vital effect on the mechanical behavior of the gels and cannot be neglected in the culture and function of artificial substitutes based on contracted collagen gels. Furthermore, the data may imply that viscous coefficient of the gels might be closely related to collagen density rather than to cross linking among collagen fibrils.

     View Summary

    Aortofemoral prosthetic Y grafts are applied for treating abdominal aortic aneurysms. In this study, experiments were conducted in order to demonstrate the effects of an incremental increase in branch diameter in a newly designed aortofemoral Y graft under conditions of both steady and pulsatile flow conditions. It was revealed that in Y grafts, the incremental increase by only 4 mm in the branch diameter affects hydrodynamic characteristics drastically under conditions of both steady and pulsatile flow conditions.

     View Summary

    Cerebrovascular diseases are one of the three major mortalities in Japan, such as the rupture of cerebral aneurysm and cerebral infarction caused by carotid stenosis. The growth mechanism of the cerebral aneurysm and carotid stenosis has not been clearly understood. In this research, we are introducing a numerical simulation tool; Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technique, to simulate and predict the hemodynamics of blood passing through the cerebral aneurysms and stenosed carotid arteries. The results of a ruptured and an unruptured cerebral aneurysm were compared. Energy losses were calculated in ruptured and unruptured cerebral aneurysms, the results were 167 Pa and 6.3 Pa respectively. The results also indicated that the blood flows took longer residence inside of bleb of the ruptured aneurysm. The maximum wall shear stress was observed at 70% stenosis from the simulation results of stenosed carotid bifurcation. The result qualitatively agrees with classical treatments in carotid bifurcation therapy.

  • Investigation of a hydrodynamic performance of a ventricular assist device after its long-term use in clinical application

     View Summary

    A long-term durability of a ventricular assist device (VAD) is required due to a shortage of donor hearts for cardiac transplantation, but there is no analyzed pump data after long-term use. This study aimed to perform a comparative study between new VAD and VADs after long-term use. The hydrodynamic performance of the used Toyobo VADs (mean period of 5 months with the maximum of 12 months) was evaluated in a mock circulatory system, where a new VAD was used as a control. Although a remarkable difference was not observed in terms of mean flow rate, flow and pressure waveforms varied significantly. Then, the pressure-volume relationship of each pump was measured: It was found that the capacity of long-term VADs was reduced. Although a further study is required, these results suggested that a long-term use of VAD may cause a change in mechanical properties of polymer materials.

     View Summary

    Heterotypic cell interactions are critical to achieve and maintain specific functions in many tissues and organs. We have focused on patterned structure surfaces to enable co-culture of heterotypic cells and recovery of patterned co-cultured cell sheets for applications in tissue engineering. Thermoresponsive polymers exhibiting different transition temperatures in water comprise both poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PIPAAm) and n-butyl methacrylate (BMA) co-grafted as side chains to PIPAAm main chains. The se copolymers were surface-grafted in patterns to obtain patterned dual thermoresponsive Cell culture surfaces using electron beam polymerisation method and porous metal masks. On patterned surfaces. site-selective adhesion on and growth of rat primary hepatocytes (HCs) and bovine carotid endothelial cells (ECs) allowed patterned co-culture, exploiting hydrophobic/hydrophilic surface chemistry regulated by culture temperature as the sole variable. At 27degreesC. seeded HCs adhered exclusively onto hydrophobic, dehydrated P(IPAAm-BMA) co-grafted domains (1-mm diamater area), but not onto neighbouring hydrated PIPAAm domains. Sequentially seeded ECs then adhered exclusively to hydrophobised PIPAAm domains upon increasing culture temperature to 37degreesC, achieving patterned co-cultures. Reducing culture temperature to 20degreesC promoted hydration of both polymer-grafted domains, permitting release of the co-cultured, patterned cell monolayers as continuous cell sheets with heterotypic cell interactions. Recovered co-cultured cell sheets can be manipulated, moved and sandwiched with other structures. providing new useful constructs both for basic cell biology research and preparation of tissue-mimicking multi-layer materials through overlaying co-cultured cell sheets.

  • Static analysis of annuloplasty rings sutured on an annulus model of the mitral valve: Comparison between the Duran ring and the Carpentier Classic ring

    Makoto Arita, Hitoshi Kasegawa, Mitsuo Umezu

    Journal of Artificial Organs   7 ( 1 ) 30 - 36  2004

     View Summary

    A novel in vitro evaluation system was developed to study the performance of newly developed and conventional annuloplasty rings. Using this system, a comparative study between the Duran flexible ring and the Carpentier Classic (rigid) ring was conducted with the aim of achieving a better understanding of these devices and of providing surgeons with better criteria for selecting the most appropriate annuloplasty ring. It was possible to obtain quantitative data using a microscope and a load cell to measure valve orifice area and tensile load on the valve annulus, respectively. Among the results were the findings that the orifice area of the rigid ring was smaller by 12.0% than that of the flexible ring and that in both rings the load was greater in the posterior region than in the anterior region. Further analysis using a beam model demonstrated that the stress applied to the sutures of the rigid ring is higher than that for the flexible ring in terms of shearing force and bending moment of the ring. This pilot study yielded several important findings: the ability of a ring to maintain valve orifice area is observable
    larger loads are applied to the posterior annulus than to the anterior annulus
    and it is possible to clarify and compare the characteristics of various types of annuloplasty rings.

    Asian Cardiovascular and Thoracic Annals   12 ( 4 ) 350 - 356  2004

     View Summary

    An in vitro pulsatile simulator with a porcine mitral valve was developed in order to simulate physiologic and diseased mitral valve conditions. Evaluation of these conditions was conducted from a hydrodynamic and annulus behavior point of view. We found it possible to simulate mild "mitral valve prolapse" and to obtain quantitative data related to the condition. The diseased condition produced a 40% greater regurgitant volume than that observed under the normal condition (p &lt
    0.0001). Regarding the leakage volume, the diseased condition exhibited about 2.6 times more leakage than the normal condition. The mitral valve simulator proposed in this study is considered fairly stable with respect to both hemodynamics and the behavior of the annulus, and it is an adequate simulator for modeling various types of normal and diseased mitral valve conditions.

    Artificial Organs   27 ( 1 ) 84 - 91  2003

     View Summary

    In this article the mechanical properties of contracted collagen gels were investigated thoroughly by means of uniaxial tensile test. Large type I collagen-Dulbecco's Modified Eagle Medium (DMEM) gels (each was 26 ml in volume, 1.67 mg/ml collagen concentration), each populated with about 2.5 × 106 human fibroblasts, were made in 100 mm diameter plastic dishes precoated with albumin for floating the gels in DMEM. Such identically treated gels were divided into three groups for the mechanical measurements at different culture periods (2, 4, and 10 weeks). Rapid contraction occurred within the first 3 days and then the contraction went slowly in the rest period until it reached about 13% of its original size. The stress-strain curve of the contracted collagen gels demonstrated an exponential behavior at low stress region, followed by linear region, a point of yielding, and finally an ultimate stress point at which the maximum stress was reached. The mechanical strength increased in the first few weeks and then decreased as the culture went on. It is obvious that the collagen fibrils formed and were forced to orientate to the tensile direction after the test. The stress relaxation and cyclic creep phenomena were observed. Based on the morphological analysis of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) of the gels, a nonlinear visco-elastic-plastic constitutive formula was proposed, which was able to reproduce the rheological phenomena of the gels. This experiment shows that the human fibroblasts significantly contracted collagen gels so as to achieve certain mechanical strength, which makes it possible to be a scaffold for tissue engineering. However, a further method to reinforce the mechanical strength by several folds must be considered. Meanwhile, the rheological phenomena should be taken into account in the fabrication and application of the structure.

The present problems to be solved are 1) how to prevent a membrane fracture and 2) how to eliminate a calcification, because both of these problems were observed in experiments with goats after 312 days and 414 days of pumping. Finite element analysis demonstrated that mechanical tensile strain induced in the membrane at valve closure was clearly consistent with the fracture location as well as calcification area in in vivo experiments. Based on this finding, a new valve seat with an additional concentric ring 14 mm in diameter and 0.5 mm in width was finally developed. The maximum strain was dramatically reduced to 52% by the design improvement. Moreover, accelerated fatigue tests demonstrated that the improved valve was 10 times more durable as compared with the original valve, which was equivalent to an in vivo duration of 8.3 years. In animal experiments, including 31days and 46 days use in a total artificial heart (TAH), no thrombus was found despite the lack of anticoagulant or antiplatelet therapies. These results indicate that the improved Jellyfish Valve might be one of the most durable polymer valves, able to perform in artificial hearts for a long period of time.

     View Summary

    The goal of this research is to establish a reliable methodology for accelerated fatigue tests of prosthetic heart valves. A polymer valve was the subject, and the influence of various drive parameters on durability was investigated in three different machines. Valve lifetime was notably shortened by increasing the cyclic rate or stroke even though the maximum pressure difference at valve closure was maintained at 120 mm Hg. These results demonstrate that adjustment of the maximum transvalvular pressure is not sufficient to ensure tests are conducted under the same conditions and indicate that measurement of the dynamic load would be more efficacious. Moreover, the locations of tears sustained in the accelerated tests differed from those encountered in an animal experiment although in both cases the locations were entirely consistent with the areas of strain concentration revealed by finite element analysis. These findings should be discussed during a revision of ISO 5840.

     View Summary

    The performance of four 25 mm bileaflet valves of different designs was evaluated in the mitral position of our own pulse simulator. With the aid of a high-speed video camera, it was demonstrated that both the St. Jude Medical (SJM) valve (Hemodynamic Plus [HP] Series, St. Jude Medical, Inc., St. Paul, MN, U.S.A.) and the CM valve (CarboMedics, Inc., Austin, TX, U.S.A.) were able to open fully and that the CM valve fluttered much snore vigorously at the fully open position than did the SJM HP valve. Conversely, neither the ATS valve (ATS Medical, Inc., Minneapolis, MN, U.S.A.) nor the On-X valve (Medical Carbon Research Institute, Austin, TX, U.S.A.) exhibited movement to a fully open configuration. The overall average opening angles of the ATS and the On-X, on 3, 4, and 5 L/min flow rate for a heart rate of 70 bpm and 5, 6, and 7 L/min for 100 bpm, were 74.8 degrees and 81.6 degrees, respectively, whereas their design opening angles were 85 degrees and 90 degrees. Pressure drops across the CM and the ATS were consistently higher than those of the On-X and the SJM HP. Closing volumes for all the valves were below 8% for a heart rate of 70 bpm. This in vitro investigation yielded the following conclusions: The ATS and On-X valves are not able to open fully in the mitral position, but this does not impair their normal function; both a larger orifice diameter and a large opening angle can decrease the pressure drop; in general, the On-X valve achieves its design goals in this experiment (i.e., it produces a lower pressure drop and lower closing volume by virtue of its large orifice and high-profile design): however, the hinge flow in the non-fully open state should be investigated further.

     View Summary

    In a previous communication, we reported a leaflet fracture in a Jellyfish valve that was incorporated into a blood pump, after a 312-day animal implant duration. Subsequent finite element analysis revealed that the fracture location was consistent with an area of maximum strain concentration. Therefore, the aim of this study was to improve the durability in the light of these findings. Based on the engineering analysis results, a new valve seat having a concentric ring, of 0.5-mm width, located at a radius of 7.0 mm, was designed and fabricated. Accelerated fatigue tests, conducted under the conditions recommended by ISO 5840, demonstrated that the durability of this new prototype was extended by a factor of 10, as compared to the original valve. Moreover, further finite element analysis indicated that the maximum equivalent elastic strain of the proposed new valve was reduced by 52.3% as compared to the original valve. Accordingly, it has been confirmed that the modified Jellyfish valve is suitable for use in long-term artificial hearts.

     View Summary

    Cineradiography has revealed the presence of the "non-fully-open" phenomenon in patients with the ATS valve. Preliminary in vitro investigations have identified two contributing factors: the expanding space at the outlet of the valve, and the local flow in the pivot area. This further study was performed with the aim of elucidating these factors with respect to different sizes of the ATS valve. Three bileafet valves, ATS, CarboMedics (CM), and St. Jude Medical (SJM), with tissue annulus diameters of 25 and 29mm, were studied. The hydrodynamic performance of the valves was tested at the mitral position of our own pulse duplicator. The opening angle was measured using a high-speed video camera. All the CM and SJM valves were able to open fully in these tests, whereas the 25-mm and 29-mm ATS valves opened to 75° and 82°, respectively, despite their design maximum of 85°. The ATS exhibited the smallest pressure drop of the 29-mm valves, and the SJM the smallest of the 25-mm valves. The incomplete opening of the ATS valve might be explained by the ability of its leaflets to align themselves with the divergent outlet flow, due to its unique open-pivot design. Such a feature would also exhibit a low pressure drop, as seen in the 29mm valve. The smaller opening angle in the 25-mm valve, however, could be caused by the additional pivot flow, which might cause greater deviation of the leaflets in the smaller valve, resulting in a higher relative pressure drop.

     View Summary

    The non-fully open phenomenon of the advancing standard medical bileaflet heart valves (the ATS valve) are frequently observed in clinical cases, even though there is no problem with their hemodynamic function. The movement of the leaflets was affected easily by the transvalvular flow because of the unique open pivot design of the ATS valve. In this paper, a comparative in vitro hydrodynamic test was conducted among 3 different types of bileaflet valves, and the effect of different shapes of downstream conduits, which induce different transvalvular flow, on hydrodynamic performance was studied. Three bileaflet valves, the ATS valve, CarboMedics valve (CM), and St. Jude Medical valve (SJM), with an annulus diameter of 29 mm for the mitral position were chosen throughout our experiments. First, pressure drops across the valves under steady flow were measured. Then, the valves were tested at the mitral position with our pneumatically driven pulsatile pump. In this pulsatile flow study, 2 different conduits (straight shape and abrupt enlargement shape) were in turn incorporated at the downstream portion of the mitral valve. A high-speed video camera was employed to observe leaflet movements. In a steady-flow test, the ATS and the SJM produced the same pressure drop, but the CM recorded a higher value. In the pulsatile study, it was observed that the ATS leaflets did not open fully in the mitral position when the downstream conduit with an abrupt enlargement shape was incorporated. However, the CM and the SJM always indicated a fully open movement regardless of the shape of downstream conduits. When the straight downstream conduit was incorporated, the ATS produced a similar pressure drop to that of the SJM, which coincided with the steady test results. When the enlargement conduit was incorporated, however, the ATS presented the lowest pressure drop despite the non-fully open movement. The conduit shape at the valve downstream had a significant influence on the closing volume. These findings indicate that the conduit shape at the valve outlet can affect the hydrodynamic characteristics of bileaflet valves.

     View Summary

    Hydrodynamics of St. Jude Medical, Carbomedics, Advancing The Standard, and On-X bileaflet valves with an annular diameter of 25 mm were obtained using an in-vitro test system. Steady flow studies demonstrated different pressure drops due to differences in valve design, particularly the geometric orifice diameter and the opening angle. The On-X valve produced the least pressure drop, whereas the Carbomedics valve had the greatest pressure drop. In pulsatile flow experiments, the On-X and St. Jude Medical valves consistently produced the lowest mean positive pressure gradients, while the Carbomedics valve had the highest gradients. In spite of its parallel leaflets design, the On-X valve showed a closing volume as small as that of Carbomedics valve. The results indicate that a larger orifice diameter and greater opening angle can significantly reduce transvalvular pressure loss. This study also demonstrated that attempts to improve the hydrodynamic efficacy of the On-X valve were successful in reducing the pressure gradient as well as maintaining a low closing volume.

     View Summary

    A natural mitral valve starts closing before systole. Conventional mechanical mitral valves start their closing motion after systole. In order to let the mechanical mitral valves start closing before systole, we propose a new self-closing Valve by adjusting the center of gravity of the leaflet. As a first step, we adjusted the center of gravity by attaching a block of lead to the leaflet of a CarboMedics bileaflet valve and evaluated it using a pulse duplicator and an x-ray high-speed video camera. Comparative study was conducted under 60 bpm and 4 L/min as the mean now rate. It was clarified that the self-dosing valve started closing before systole, no influence on inflow volume was found, the final closing speed of the self-closing valve just before complete closure was slower than the conventional valve (1.9-0.34 m/s), a design strategy of a self-closing valve (sewing ring diameter 29 mm) was obtained from the experiment that momentum of inertia of the leaflet should be less than 14.9 x 10(-9) kg.m(2) and the torque caused by gravity should be more than 4.2 x 10(-6) N . m, and only one leaflet should be designed as self-closing, and surgeons need to pay attention to the positioning of the two leaflets. In conclusion, the preliminary study showed the ability of starting to close before systole and the design strategy for future prototyping.

  • Rotary blood pump flow spontaneously increases during exercise under constant pump speed: Results of a chronic study

     View Summary

    Many types of rotary blood pumps and pump control methods have recently been developed with the goal of clinical use. From experiments, we know that pump flow spontaneously increases during exercise without changing pump control parameters. The purpose of this study was to determine the hemodynamics associated with the long-term observation of calves implanted with centrifugal blood pumps (EVAHEART, Sun Medical Technology Research Corporation, Nagano, Japan). Two healthy female Jersey calves were implanted with devices in the left thoracic cavity. A total of 22 treadmill exercise tests were performed after the 50th postoperative day. During exercise, the following parameters were compared with conditions at rest: heart rate, blood pressure, central venous oxygen saturation (SvO(2)), pump speed, and pump flow. The pump flow in a cardiac cycle was analyzed by separating the systole and diastole. Compared to the base data, statistically significant differences were found in the following interrelated parameters: the heart rate (66.8 +/- 5.2 vs. 196 +/- 9.7 bpm), mean pump flow (4.8 +/- 0.2 vs. 7.0 +/- 0.3 L/min), and volume of pump now in diastole (26.9 +/- 1.8 vs. 13.5 +/- 2.5 ml). During exercise, the volume of pump flow in systole was 3 times larger than that measured in diastole. Blood pressure, SvO(2), and pump speed did not change significantly from rest to exercise. These results suggested that the mean pump flow depends on the systolic pump flow. Therefore, the increase in the mean pump flow during exercise under constant pump speed was caused by an increase in the heart rate.

     View Summary

    Determination of the potential for blood cell damage induced by artificial heart valves is essential in deciding the suitability of the valve for clinical use. Both the magnitude and the duration of the shear stress influence the onset and severity of the damage to the constituents of blood. In this study, in vitro shear stress measurements of the mitral jellyfish and Bjork-Shiley tilting-disk (mono) prosthetic valves under physiological pulsatile flow conditions were conducted. The data indicate that elevated levels of shear stress occurred mainly ID downstream from both valves. With the aid of a mathematical model and using the elevated shear stress data, the relative release of hemoglobin by damaged red blood cells and of lactate dehydrogenase by platelets was computed for both valves. For the operating conditions examined, the jellyfish valve was found to cause the least damage to blood, with a relative blood damage index of 0.27 against a value of 0.47 for the Bjork-Shiley valve.

     View Summary

    A compact centrifugal blood pump has been developed as an implantable left ventricular assist system. The impeller diameter is 40 mm, and pump dimensions are 55 x 64 mm. This first prototype, fabricated from titanium alloy, resulted in a pump weight of 400 g including a brushless DC motor. The weight of a second prototype pump was reduced to 280 g. The entire blood contacting surface is coated with diamond like carbon (DLC) to improve blood compatibility. Flow rates of over 7 L/min against 100 mm Hg pressure at 2,500 rpm with 9 MI total power consumption have been measured. A newly designed mechanical seal with a recirculating purge system (Cool-Seal) is used for the shaft seal. In this seal system, the seal temperature is kept under 40 degrees C to prevent heat denaturation of blood proteins. Purge fluid also cools the pump motor coil and journal bearing. Purge fluid is continuously purified and sterilized by an ultrafiltration unit which is incorporated in the paracorporeal drive console. In vitro experiments with bovine blood demonstrated an acceptably low hemolysis rate (normalized index of hemolysis = 0.005 +/- 0.002 g/100 L). In vivo experiments are currently ongoing using calves. Via left thoracotomy, left ventricular (LV) apex descending aorta bypass was performed utilizing an expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) vascular graft with the pump placed in the left thoracic cavity, In 2 in vivo experiments, the pump flow I-ate was maintained at 5-9 L/min. and pump power consumption remained stable at 9-10 W. AIL plasma free Hb levels were measured at less than 15 mg/dl. The seal system has demonstrated good seal capability with negligible purge fluid consumption (&lt;0.5 ml/day). In both calves, the pumps demon strated trouble free continuous function over 6 month (200 days and 222 days).

     View Summary

    Background and aims of the study: The Carpentier-Edwards (CE) ring was developed to restore the normal 3:4 ratio between the anteroposterior and transverse diameters of the mitral valve orifice during systole. It is difficult to use in patients in whom the ratio is more than 3:4. To overcome this problem, we developed an adjustable obturator, the ratio of which may be changed by sliding apart its two components.
    Methods: Remodeling annuloplasty was performed using part of a flexible Duran ring or autologous pericardium and the adjustable obturator in 17 patients with severe MR, including two with high anterior leaflet.
    Results: Physiologic remodeling annuloplasty was easily accomplished in all cases. Intraoperative echocardiography was performed in 14 patients, and it showed no regurgitant jet in 11 cases and only trivial jet in three.
    Conclusion: Physiologic remodeling annuloplasty to retain the natural shape of the anterior leaflet by using an adjustable obturator is a very useful technique that enables annuloplasty to be performed in all cases, irrespective of the shape of the anterior leaflet.

     View Summary

    To clarify the effect of atrial contraction on the dynamic behavior of mitral prosthetic valves, a mechanical mock circulatory system has been developed. It is able to simulate the inflow characteristics during diastole. The disc motions of Bjork-Shiley Monostrut (BSM29) and CarboMedics (CM29) valves (both with an annulus diameter of 29 mm) were measured and compared with a high speed video camera. After contraction of the artificial atrium (100 ms), there was a delay of 75 ms before the onset of the ventricular contraction. Mitral flow similar to physiological conditions could be achieved. The BSM29 was tested in the anterior-position (a) and the posterior position (p). Under the condition of active atrial contraction (AC), we confirmed that the closing motion was initiated and the period during closing motion (PDCM) was prolonged (BSM29[a]: 22.4 ± 3.4 → 63 ± 3.2
    BSM29[p]: 71.2 ± 38 → 94.2 ± 11
    and CM29: 14 ± 0.0 → 28.4 ± 2.3 [unit: ms]), the prolongation of the PDCM of the CM29 due to the AC being smaller than that of the BSM29. We also confirmed that the closing volume (CV) increased slightly (BSM29 [a]: 7.8 ± 0.4 → 8.5 ± 0.8
    BSM29[p]: 6.9 ± 0.6 → 7.0 ± 0.5
    and CM29: 3.6 ± 0.6 → 4.1 ± 0.6 [unit: ml]). The CM29 had a shorter PDCM, less prolongation of the PDCM due to the AC, and less CV than the BSM29. Thus, we confirmed that the CM29 produced better response at valve closure than the BSM29.

     View Summary

    Cerebral revascularization is an established surgical treatment for intracranial aneurysm and ischemic cerebrovascular disease. However, one problem of this treatment is that we cannot predict the postoperative hemodynamics. In this study, we have integrated the measurement of blood flow in intracranial arteries by phase contrast MRI, measurement of cereral blood flow by PET/SEPCT and computationla fluid dynamics (CFD), and have clarified a part of mechanisms of local vascular adjustment and redistribution of cerebral blood flow after revascularization surgery. Results of this study will lead to the development of a simulator for cerebral blood flow in the whole brain area which predicts postoperative hemodynamics, and will contribute to the improvement of treatment results after revascularization surgery

     View Summary

    In the treatment of knee anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) ruptured in sports and so on, patient’s own tendon is harvested and used. In this study, as a new tissue substitute, porcine tendon was used, and decellularization and sterilization technologies of tissues were established. Experiments of reconstruction of ovine knee ACL using decellularized and sterilized porcine tendons revealed that the decellularized tissues were functioned 3 months. The tissues were repopulated in vivo with ovine autologous cells and vessels were formed. Ultimate tensile loads after 3 months implantation were comparable between decellularized porcine tissues and autologous Achilles tendons. This study opened a new way to develop a novel medical device to treat ACL without need of harvesting patient’s own tendon

     View Summary

    This research aims to develop a novel approach for cardiac tissue engineering through the creation of the culture substrate which promotes the cardiac differentiation of ES/iPS cells and the selection of the differentiated target cells cultured on its surface. The culture substrate, a biohydrogel, was made from decellularized animal ventricular extracellular matrix. The research showed that stem cell differentiation can be modulated by controlling the mechanical properties of the culture substrate, and the target cell selection can be realized by imposing dynamic stress on the substrate. Bioreactor with mechanical stress control was developed to create the intermediate module for the cardiac tissue construction. This research presents a promising approach to tissue-engineer the highly functional cardiac tissue equivalent

     View Summary

    A stent graft is a medical device for an endovascular treatment to prevent rupture of the aortic aneurysm. A fenestration type of the graft is utilized for preserving blood flow of arch and trifurcation vessels with the aneurysm. Medical doctors could predict the angle of graft rotation within an aorta under the pulsatile situation based on over 100 cases of clinical experience. Therefore, they know how to deploy a stent graft appropriately. However, it is difficult to feed others good tips on the stent graft deployment. The purpose of this study is to provide evidences with a mock system to promote awareness in clinical practice. We have developed a test method under pulsatile situation for evaluating aortic stent grafts

     View Summary

    This study aimed at the prediction of cerebral hemodynamics after revascularization surgery for complex intracranial aneurysms by using phase contrast magnetic resonance imaging (PC-MRI) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), thus developing a treatment support tool leading to the improvement of operative outcomes. First, we optimezed acquisition parameters of PC-MRI using a silicone model and normal volunteers, and then measured pre and post-operative blood flow in cerebral arteies of patients with an intracranial aneurysm undergoing a revascularzation surgery using optimezed parameters. Blood flow, vessel diameters and wall shear stress (WSS)dynamically changed immediate after surgery, and WSS tended to retrun to the preoperative value after three months. These results revealed one of the rules determinating hemodynamics after revascularization surgery for complex intracranial aneurysms

     View Summary

    Dissipative energy loss (EL) of the left ventricular intracavitary blood flow can be obtained using VFM analysys, a novel echocardiographic technology. EL reflects the efficiency of the blood flow, and would be an index of cardiac function. The aim of this research project was to establish the normative value of EL in children.We revealed that both the systolic and diastolic EL had a negative correlation with age and a positive correlation with HR. In addition, the diastolic EL was positively correlated with the E wave peak velocity. We derived the regression equations, in which the systolic EL was predicted by age and heart rate, and the diastolic EL was predicted by age, HR, and E wave peak velocity. Although the clinical implications of EL within the LV in the assessment of cardiac function are currently unclear, our study provides reference values for systolic and diastolic EL that can be used by future studies examining patients with various heart diseases

    We propose novel evaluation criteria for assessing aortic revascularization surgery from the standpoint of regulatory science using computational fluid dynamics (CFD).In order to know the blood flow distribution in the body, we measured blood flow in the aortic arch of healthy individuals and aortic aneurysm patients by phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (PC-MRI). We created human blood vessel models from the MRI images of the aortic arch, and simplified branch models that represent the vessel geometry after revascularization. We used the models to examine the CFD boundary conditions corresponding to PC MRI images and established a method to analyze blood flow distribution. We also examined the computational limitations of our simplified models

    Early survival after Fontan procedure has improved dramatically for the development of perioperative surgical treatment and strategy based on each surgeon's experience and scientific data. Despite of these improvement, there are still concerns about long-term complications, i.e. pulmonary arteriovenous malformation and thrombus formation in the conduit, which can less the quality of life after surgery. We simulated the optimal design of procedures with computational fluid dynamics to gain the better quality of survival and the optimal anastomosis was developed both in Fontan and Glenn procedure. This technique could be applied to designing of the different type of pediatric cardiac surgery, which is expected to lead the better quality of life after surgery

     View Summary

    1) Animal Experiment: We evaluated hemodynamic function of the stentless mitral valve with echocardiography in an acute phase using 8 pigs. No significant mitral regurgitation was found, and the mean mitral pressure gradient during diastole was low, which indicated excellent hemodynamic performance of the stentless mitral valve. 2) Clinical Trial: Nine patients underwent mitral surgery using the stentless mitral valve. All patients went well, and showed no significant mitral regurgitation. The mean mitral pressure gradient was reasonably low; however, it has a tendency towards increasing as time elapses. We continue to follow those patients carefully. 3) Advertisement and Propagation: We organize an annual meeting for stentless mitral valve to report our early and late surgical results and to discuss issues surrounding the stentless mitral valve. The registration system of patients undergoing the stentless valve was established

     View Summary

    Anew approach using the technology of solid-liquid interaction model to estimate the risk of aneurysm rupture was performed under hemodynamic conditions. Flow energy loss in aneurysms was significantly different between ruptured-aneurysms and stable-aneurysms. The preliminary study found that greater energy loss occurred when flow passed through ruptured aneurysms, when compared to unruptured aneurysms. This new concept of energy loss may become a useful tool for the prediction of aneurysm rupture. These preliminary results indicated that EL may be a useful parameter for the quantitative estimation of the risks of rupture for aneurysms

    This research deals with the two critical issues for the realization of the clinical use of ES/iPS cells in the treatment of heart failure: one is the effective differentiation into cardiomyocytes from ES/iPS cells, and another is the creation of cardiac tissue equivalent. By the integration of stem cell engineering, protein engineering, and tissue engineering, a novel method for fabrication of natural-ECM included scaffold layer was developed; differentiation into cardiomyocytes was enhanced on this scaffold; and furthermore, cardiac tissue equivalent was created through stacking multi such layers. The above experiments have brought out findings in the differentiation of mouse ES cells into cardiomyocytes, in the effect of mechanical characteristics of scaffold on the differentiation, and in the construction of cardiac tissue equivalent

  • Construction of engineered cardiac tissue possessing the contractile characteristics of in vivo myocardium

    Project Year :

    2004

    2007
     

     View Summary

    This research project is aimed at constructing, based on collagen gel scaffold, engineered cardiac tissue (ECT) that will possess the contractile characteristics of in vivo myocardium. Through 3 years' studies, we obtained the following results and achievements.
    1. By comparing the mRNA and protein expression of some vital transcriptional factors and constitutive proteins of intercalated disc in cultured cardiomyocytes with those in myocardium in vivo, we showed that the transcriptional factors, SRF and myocardin, and the constitutive proteins, N-cadherin and connexin43, were at lower expression levels in cultured cardiomyocytes than in the tissues in vivo. It suggested that the attenuation of these molecules may impede the further differentiation of the cardiomyocytes under culture condition and that the formation of intercalated disc of engineered cardiac tissue may be in defect. The weak contractile force of ECT is also considered to mostly owe to the above lower expressions. Based on these findings, gene transfer technology was employed to enforce the expression of N-cadherin in cultured cells to enhance the interaction between adjacent cardiomyocytes.
    2. Permeability of the collagen gel sold was increased by the addition of heparin and albumin. With such modified collagen gel, nutrient provision and metabolic waste excretion are improved 4 kinds of additives, heparin, albumin, fibronectin, and fibrinogen were added to collagen gels, respectively, and the permeability of glucose through the gels were measured. The results showed that heparin and albumin were able to increase the permeablity by about two folds.
    3. A series of experiments were conducted to carefully search for the optimal conditions to each step of the ECT creation procedure. It came out that the following two treatments were necessary besides prior published protocol: I) the addition of cysteine into culture medium would help to diminish the residual effect of collagenase after cell harvest from natural heart tissue and in gel making process, ii) to prevent the embedded cardiomyocytes from depositing at and attaching to the bottom of culture dishes, the gels should be inverted once just after gelation.
    4. A novel electro-tensile bioreactor was developed to promote the continuation of cardiomyocytes differentiation and the maturation of 3D tissue under culture. Differing from the former one developed by us, this new type imposed tensile stress by resisting, with an ingenious way, the contraction of the ECT which is induced by electrical pulse stimulus, rather than directly stretching the ECT. Therefore, the electrical stimulus, contraction strain and contraction stress were orderly occurred in the ECT the harmony of electrical stimulus and the tensile stress was reached by means of the inherent electro-contraction mechanism.
    5. We invented an algorithm based on the theory of elastic string vibration to calculate the contractile force in the ECT versus to time, strain, and strain rate, respectively. By analyzing the contraction displacement of the ECT in ring shape, this method provided an effective approach for revealing the characteristics of ECT contraction and can detect quite small contractile force to 1 μN
    6. Through the above innovations and improvements, the contractile force exerted by the ECT was increased by 16 folds, and it presented the characteristics that the maximal contractile force preceded the maximal contraction strain but corresponding to maximal strain rate, which is quite similar to the characteristics of natural heart muscle contraction.

     View Summary

    The purpose of this research is to grasp the influence of the leaflet and overall design differences on the flow field inside the valsalva and to clarify the influence of these differences on the coronary flow when the valve is equipped at aortic location. By utilizing the previously developed Aorta and experience accumulated in constructing simulation device, new Aorta model simulating aortic characteristic was planned and constructed and used it to analyze the influence of overall valve and leaflet design on the flow field inside the valsalva and on the coronary circulation by using DynamicPIV system
    In the first research year, we planed to construct prototype Aorta model and planed execution of pre-experiment to establish analytical method using DynamicPIV system. Pre-experiment using newly constructed prototype Aorta model was executed using the MIRA valve and the SJM valve as test valves, resulted in finding substantial differences on the generated flow.
    Above-mentioned new analytical method was purposely tried at trusted mitral valve location, where enough data was accumulated for evaluation, to find the influence of the valve designs on the mitral flow field. Some results were already reported through international and domestic conferences.
    In the last research year, we constructed final silicone Aorta model with valsalva. It was equipped in the simulation device and experiment was conducted. As a result, flow field influenced by the mechanical bi-leaflet valve was obtained in detail and was able to grasp the flow phenomenon inside the valsalva. With this time-resolved information in hand, we were able to grasp the influence of flow field to the coronary circulation.

     View Summary

    A circulatory simulator was developed in order to evaluate artificial organs such as ventricular assist systems, artificial heart valves, and arterial prosthetic grafts from the view point of hemodynamics. Some experiments were conducted to demonstrate characteristics of a rotary pump used for a right ventricular assist system and a newly designed aortofemoral prosthetic Y graft in the simulator. As a result, it was revealed that there was definitely an incremental increase in the branch diameter increasing the flow rate through the graft. In this study, a newly designed pressure transducer and an expandable tube for clinical application were devised. The former is enough small to be fixed into artificial organs in which the pressure can be measured. The latter was designed to expand the diameter of the tube as a tracheal tube and a cannula for left ventricular bypass. These inventions are lodging patent applications. In addition, a new database system was developed in order to analyze clinical data statistically. Clinical data including pulse wave velocity (PWV) were analyzed actually by the system and it was revealed the tendency that the risk of the death increases accompanied by increase in PWV as a result. It is supposed that the combination of the simulator and the database system will be useful to evaluate artificial organs from the viewpoints of clinical study, engineering, and statistics.

     View Summary

    In order to discuss a selection criteria for surgical technique on cardiovascular diseases, it is effective to make use of a mock circulatory system. In this study, mitral regurgitation is focused for the development of surgical training simulator. At first reproduction of mitral regurgitation was achieved. Then quantitative evaluation of the mitral valvuloplasty were performed as an application of the in vitro simulator.
    1.Reproduction of mitral regurgitation
    A fresh porcine mitral valve with chordae and papillary muscles was installed into the mitral position of the mock circuit. The evaluation system is capable of simulating various mitral conditions by changing the valve orientation. The normal model was implemented with the papillary muscle in the same configuration as in a natural heart. In contrast, the prolapse model was produced by severing anterior marginal chordae. As a result, valve closure similar to a natural heart was successfully attained in the normal model.
    2.Evaluation of the effectiveness of mitral valvuloplasty
    A comparative test was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of mitral valvuloplasty techniques for the repair of an anterior mitral leaflet prolapse. In order to correct the prolapsed portion of mitral valve, the chordal replacement (replacement model) and the edge-to-edge technique (Edge-to-Edge model) were applied by an experienced surgeon. After the application of the two, the prolapsed portion was corrected in systole, and a double orifice area of E-to-E model was observed in diastole.
    In conclusion, it has been confirmed that the mock system developed in this study can provide useful data for cardiac surgeons. As the data can be treated quantitatively, surgeons and biomedical engineers can discuss on the scientific basis.

    補助人工心臓は重症心不全患者に対して有効な治療手段であるが,高価格であり,またその利用が高度先進医療施設に限定されることから適用数は極めて少ない.このため,急性心不全といった短期間での回復が期待される症例に対しては,有効な医療デバイスが国内において存在しない現状にある.本最終年度は,真空成形法により大量生産技術を確立した旋回渦流型拍動血液ポンプを基盤とし,どの市中病院でもほぼ常備している大動脈バルーンパンピング用駆動装置(IABP駆動装置)を流用して臨床で要求される性能を満足すべく,駆動装置のアタッチメントを開発した.あわせて,カニューレのプロトタイプを作製してポンプシステムとしての総合的性能を明確化した.IABP駆動装置を用いた際には,人工心臓用駆動装置と比較して1.5倍の溶血量が生じることが判明した.この原因として,IABP駆動装置による駆動圧力波形の急激な変化による血球へのダメージが考えられた.そこで,駆動圧の最大,最小圧及びdP/dtを低減させること目的に,ニードル弁・圧力タンクで構成する一次遅れ系要素を応用した圧力制御ユニットを開発した.このユニットをポンプと駆動装置の間に接続するだけで,ポンプの拍出量は維持したまま駆動陽・陰圧をそれぞれ32%,55%減少させることができた.さらに,人工心臓用駆動装置を用いた場合と比較して溶血量を7.4%減少させることに成功した.あわせて,患者の精神的負担と感染リスクを低減させることを目的とし,内径が体外部19mm,皮膚貫通部10mm,体内部12mmという皮膚貫通部のみを細径化したカニューレを設計・製作して性能試験を行った.その結果,本ポンプシステムで5L/minを超える平均流量の確保が可能であることが判明し,各要素の開発はほぼ完了した.今後,動物実験を行い,解剖学的フィッティングを包括してカニューレを開発する必要がある.

  • Investigation of Usefulness of "Recovery-Directed Left Ventricular Assist Device" invented based on a new concept

     View Summary

    Recovery-Directed Left Ventricular Assist Device (RDLVAD) is a new type LVAD characterized by remarkable reduction in ventricular afterload during systole and no restriction of ventricular relaxation or dilatation during diastole, thereby promoting cardiac recovery. It consists of a valved apical conduit, a compliant afterload-controlling chamber (ACC), and a continuous-flow type blood pump. In both experiments using a mock circulation and isolated perfused rabbit hearts, we investigated sizes and properties of the main components that are appropriate for RDLVAD to achieve the above features.
    1.In the state of severe left heart failure represented in the mock circulation, the effect of each of 12 combinations made between 3 different apical valves and 4 different ACCs on the left ventricular pressure (LVP), the ACC pressure and the maximum cardiac output was studied. The apical valves, 9 and 13 mm in internal diameter, were too small to reduce the ventricular load. The 18-mm apical valve, whose opening area was 60% of that of the 23-mm aortic valve, and the ACC half as large as the stroke volume were smallest for constantly achieving significant reduction in ventricular afterload and sufficient blood supply ; the developed pressure as low as a mean systolic LVP of 27mmHg and a peak LVP of 47mmHg was capable of producing a maximum cardiac output (=maximum pump flow) of 5.8L/min even if the compliance of ACC was as low as 0.1-0.6mL/mmHg.
    2.We have warned that continuous-flow type LVADs increase the risk of impeding ventricular relaxation and filling as a pump flow rate rises. This phenomenon was shown both in the mock circulation and animal experiments. In some isolated hearts, heart rate also suddenly increased when the pump flow was raised. On the other hand, the RDLVAD did not restrict ventricular relaxation or filling.

     View Summary

    This project aimed to develop high performance stents which enable to reduce the hyperplasia in diseased coronary arteries. Two new approaches were designed and tested : One approach is covered stent in which microporous segmented polyuretheve thin film is wrapped on the stent to prepare a covered stent on which high photoreactive coating enabled sustained release of an incorporated drug. The in vivo study verified that heparin release eventually reduced the intimal hyperpleasia. The other approach is to delivery endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) autologously harvested from the circulating peripheral blood. EPC "paving " from the EPC-seeded stents resulted in full endothelialization at denuded arteries, resulting in rapid wound healing. Thus, the project was completed with high outcome.

  • Experimental Comparison of End-to-Side and Side-to-Side Anastomosis for Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting

     View Summary

    Recently, arterial conduits, such as internal thoracic arteries and the right gastroepiploic artery are being used extensively for coronary artery revascularization to obtain better long-term patency. To use these grafts, end-to-side anastomosis (ESA) is generally utilized to attach the bypass graft to the native coronary artery. Due to the small caliber of these conduits, a slit must be made at the end of the graft to obtain a sufficiently large anastomotic area. However, with side-to-side anastomosis (SSA) a larger anastomotic area can be obtained for arterial conduits, and therefore we have been performing SSA clinically for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with arterial grafts for several years. In this study, we conducted experiments on ESA and SSA to determine the performance and characteristics of these anastomotic methods, to provide practical information for surgeons and to facilitate the selection of anastomosis for individual patients.
    Hemodynamic tests of the two different types of anastomoses (ESA and SSA) were carried out in both in vitro and in vivo settings. In the in vitro study, two different anastomotic models were constructed from transparent siliastic tubes, and hemodynamic parameters were measured using a mock circulation device. Moreover, we conducted a comparative study to support the in vitro data using numerical flow simulations. These simulations were validated against experimental data using the flow visualization technique. In the in vivo study, CABG was performed in five adult pigs under cardiopulmonary bypass. Bilateral internal thoracic arteries were inserted into the right coronary artery using ESA or SSA for each graft. After weaning from cardiopulmonary bypass, hemodynamic measurements were obtained, as in the in vitro study.
    Energy loss was calculated from the graft flow rate and the pressure loss between the native coronary artery and bypass graft. In the in vitro study, the energy loss for SSA was 23.8% lower than that of ESA. This was reproduced in the in vivo study in which reduction of 44.8% was observed. The result of numerical analysis and flow visualization indicated the existence of a stronger vortex in ESA compared with SSA.
    Less disturbance and lower flow resistance were observed in SSA than in ESA based on the level of energy loss and observation of flow fields, which suggests that SSA has a smoother anastomotic geometry for flow than ESA. This might affect the inhibition of intimal hyperplasia, which could lead to a better long-term patency rate of the coronary bypass conduit using SSA compared with ESA when arterial conduits are used.

    In order to establish the large-scale production process of cellular-type oxygen carriers (hemoglobin (Hb)-vesicles), the following subjects were finished.
    1. Carbonylation and deoxygenation process of the Hb solutions : The carbonylation (CO) and deoxygenation of a hemoglobin (Hb) solution were performed with an artificial lung.
    2. Electrochemical deoxygenation of the HbO_2 solution : The dissolved oxygen (pO_2<1O Torr) was electrochemically reduced to water under the diluted hydrogen/ nitrogen mixture gas condition.
    3. Ligand-exchange process of HbCO to HbO_2 : The Ligand-exchange process was carried out by visible-light irradiation to the HbCO solution using a liquid thin film or a silicon hollow fiber module.
    4. Synthesis of new aminolipids and the use : The polyoxyethylen-conjugated or negatively-charged aminolipids were newly synthesized and the Hb-vesicles were prepared with these lipids.
    5. Scaling up of an extrusion process : To improve the efficiency of the extrusion process, the mixced lipid dispersion was previously freeze-mawed and -dried. The necessary time during the extrusion process of the dispersion of the powder to the Hb solution was largely reduced, and the efficiency of the extrusion was also dramatically increased with the multistage-combined type extruder.
    6. Evaluation of the 10L-scale production of the Hb vesicles : The apparatus in an each process was lined, and me 10L-scale production of the Hb vesicles are being evaluated. The pilot plants on the scale of 300 L will be planned.

    第3年度は,人工弁・人工心臓などの開発の早期に血液適合性をある程度評価でき,また,設計改良の指針となるデータを得ることが可能な,より信頼性のあるin vitro血液適合性評価試験回路の開発を目指した.
    第一に,回路内での血液と空気の接触面を完全に排除した4つの同一形状の旋回渦流型血液ポンプで構成される一巡閉鎖回路を開発した.4つの血液ポンプのうち1つのみを駆動し,他の1つはコンプライアンス,残りの2つはリザーバの役割を持たせることで,平均大動脈圧100mmHg,平均ポンプ拍出量2.5L/minといった実際の使用環境に近い試験環境にすることができた.また,washout性能の極めて良好な旋回渦流型血液ポンプを回路の構成要素として用いることで,流れの停滞領域のない試験回路を開発することができた.第二に,チューブやコネクタなど試験回路の構成パーツに対する血小板の活性能を同一にするために,血液ポンプと同一材料で回路内面全体をコーティングした.なお,本研究では新開発の高分子製二葉弁を血液適合性評価試験対象とした.
    開発した回路内をヘパリン化した新鮮牛血液で満たし,その後プロタミンで中和してACTを300sec〜400secに調節した後に試験を開始した.採取した血液中の血小板の活性能時間を考慮して,試験は4時間で終了した.試験後の弁葉表面をSEMによって観察した結果,(1)弁流出側の弁葉表面では血球成分の付着及びフィブリン網などが全く観察されず血液適合性は良好であったが,流入側の弁葉表面では弁閉鎖時にスポークと接触する部分の吸着タンパク質層に磨耗跡が観察された.また,(2)弁座と弁葉の接着部分に血小板の付着が観察された.以上から,新たに開発したin vitro血液適合性評価試験回路は製品開発の早期に問題点を明確にするのに極めて有効であることが明らかとなった.

     View Summary

    Shear stress, which is a tensor value, is regarded as an essential factors of hemolysis, but hemolysis level is a scalar value. Therefore. the authors proposed energy dissipation rate E (J/m^3) as a generalized substitute for shear stress and have formulated the following expression for plasma free hemoglobin.
    H=kE^αt (where, k and α are constant values, H : hemoglobin level)
    In addition, the difference in the threshold shear level due to the type of stress, namely viscous and Reynolds stress, is believed to be related only to the exposure time. Therefore, preliminary in vitro hemolysis test has been performed using to clarify the effects of laminar and turbulent flows on hemolysis.
    In the present experiments, two types of suspension media with different viscosities were used to examine a sufficiently wide range of Reynolds numbers without altering hematocrit or exposure time. Bovine red blood cells were suspended in saline for turbulent flow condition and in dextran solution for laminar flow condition. The viscosity of the suspensions were 1.56cP and 5.20cP, respectively. Blood was circulated for 90 min under the shear stress of 100-500 Pa.
    Blasius friction factor was calculated to verify flow condition as a laminar or turbulent. The experimental results exhibited that hemolysis rate under turbulent flow was four times higher than that under laminar flow, suggesting that the effect of viscous and Reynolds stress on hemolysis is not always equal. Then, it became possible to consider that energy dissipation took an important role to predict a level of hemolysis.

  • Prediction of durability of artificial organs using an accerelated fatigue tester

     View Summary

    In order to predict a durability of heart valve prostheses, two types of commercially available (ISU-Standard) accerelated fatigue tests were employed, while improving a life time of Jellyfish polymer valve.
    A chronic animal experiment of Jellyfish valves incorporated into conventional sac-type blood pumps for over 300days exhibited that there were a fracture and calcification on this flexible membrane. Therefore, a long durability (approx. 1 year guarantee) of Jellyfish valve has been developing. while clearing a cause of the problems.
    First of all, design improvement of Jellyfish valve was attempted. Results of finite element analysis during closed phase of Jellyfish valve indicated that mechanical strain generated on valve membrane fracture and calcification in the animal experiment. Moreover further analysis suggested that an additional circular rim located at 7.0mm in radius was quite effective to avoid strain concentration. In vitro steady and pulsatile tests demonstrated that a modified valve with 0.5mm width rim located at 70mm in radius had a comparable hydrodynamic performance to the original Jellyfish valve.
    For the next step, commercially available two types of accelerated fatigue tests were employed. Fatigue tests successfully revealed that a durability of the modified valve was much more extended than the original Jellyfish valve by 7 times.
    Thus, chronic animal experiment with conventional sac-type blood pumps in which the modified valves were incorporated was performed for months. Hemolysis related to the application of the modified valve was not observed. This would be owing to the tapered configuration of the additional rim with 0.1mm width of inflow side.
    From the data above, the modified polymer valve showed great promise for clinical artificial heart application, and it was also clarified that our prevent fatigue tester could provide comparative durability data of polymer valves.

  • Development of a mock circulatory system as a supporting tool to propose the oprimal cardiac surgery

     View Summary

    An originally-designed mock circulatory system (MCS) has been developed in order to evaluate functions of several types of artificial organs for the surgical treatment of cardiovascular deseases. The features of the present MCS has a capability of exhibiting a practical simulation of hemodynamics in aortic vascular prostheses, and of having a mechanical feasibility of the natural left ventricular contraction by the computer-based control.
    As mechanical properties of arterial vascular grafts are different from those of elastic natural arteries, it can be speculated that the left ventricular afterload might be elevated after the graft implantation due to its low compliance. By switching blood flow to a bypass graft which was inserted in parallel with the natural descending aorta of dog, the characteristic impedance was elevated by 2.6 times, furthermore, the cardiac output was decreased by 14%, and the cardiac work calculated from the pressure-volume relationships in the left ventricle, was increased by 1.5 times. MCS was also employed to represent hemodynamic characteristics as well as to compare the data with those in animal experiments. When the flow was set to 4L/min in MCS by the mechanical driven pump, either characteristic impedance of the arterial system or external work of the left ventricular model was increased by 2.4 or 1.5 times, respectively. Thus, it was anticipated that the external cardiac work would be elevated by the increase of the arterial impedance after the graft implantation.

     View Summary

    The purpose of this study was to fabricate viscoelastic tubes, which was anatomically identical and functionally equivalent to the natural aorta. A rotational molding workstation which was originally developed at the National University of Singapore was used for this research. First of all, we tried to fabricate aortic arch-shaped tubes by a conventional method ; a single rotational axis was employed after silicone liquid was painted onto the mold by a brush. However, it was hard to make an even thickness tube, and it was also hard to control the quality. For the next step, several trials and errors were conducted using a rotational molding workstation under various combination of rotational speeds between two axis with different painting volume, interval and times. At last, the optimal condition to develop 1mm-thickness tube was determined as follows : rotational speeds of major and minor axis were 0.02rpm and 8rpm, respectively, a weight of silicone was 20g each for three times, and painting interval was 3hours. Then, thickness deviation which was defined as a ratio between standard deviation and average thickness culd be reduced from 30% to 20%.
    It was well-known that natural aorta had specific mechanical properties ; increase in pressure is small for the range of less incremental volume, whereas it becomes more for the range of higher incremental volume. We have tried to fabricated multi-layr tube, however, we haven't get a favorable result. So, other trials that contained different properties from silicone was carried out. A sponge layr was sandwiched with soft and stiff silicone layrs. The compliance values of this 3-layr tube was 0.41 1/mmHg in the range of small incremental volume up tp 40%, but it was decreased to 0.36 1/mmHg for over 40%, due to a shift of major elasctic effects from outer stiff to inner soft silicon layr.
    Above findings were worthwhile for the further improvements of the rotational molding machine.

    A spiral-vortex-type blood pump is one of the promising pumps having the best fluid dynamic characteristics to control the thrombus formation inside the pump. To develop a total system of the pump and for an application of it to the cardiomyoplasty, following studies have been conducted.
    (1) A new system for the measurement of pump flow was designed, based on a principle that the electrical capacitance of electrodes attached to the pump surface changes depending on the blood volume inside the pump. A preliminary test in vitro has shown excellent results.
    (2) An economical method for the fabrication of the blood pump has been designed, using vacuum forming and injection molding. Using the technique, several pumps with different physical shapes were fabricated, and basic performance of them has been tested and compared with each others for the empirical optimization of pump shape.
    (3) A new economical ball valve with plastic housing has been designed for the blood pump application. A preliminary test in vitro has proven an excellent fluid dynamical performance of the valve.
    (4) Effect of rough surface of polymer materials on the thrombogenisity have been analyzed quantitatively. The surface of the polymer was fabricated quantitatively textured (physical length and interval) with laser beam, and the polymer has been implanted in sheep. The experiments are still on the way.
    (5) Basic mechanical characteristics (energetics) of the pump diaphragm have been analyzed for the future application of cardiomyoplasty.
    (6) Flow pattern inside the pump has been measured by laser Doppler anemometry. The analyzing software has been developed, and the results have been displayd in animation.
    (7) Acute animal experiments have been conducted for test the feasibility of blood pump system. The pumps have shown excellent spiral-vortex inside the pump.

  • Development of a Internationally acceptable fatigue test system for prosthetic heart valve

     View Summary

    The purpose of this study is to establish an internationally-acceptable methodology of fatigue testing for prosthetic heart valves, based on the improvement process of a Chinese-made accelerated fatigue test apparatus. This test system had four parallel water cylinders, in which valves were incorporated. Open and closing motion of each valve was controlled at a repetition speed of 10-20 Hz with a displacement of 1-2mm. The Jerryfish (JF) valve was used in this study. It had the longest implantation record in animal trials. In this case, the polyurethane membrane with the thickness of 50-70 mum was ruptured due to a creep effect observed at the middle portion between two spokes after 300days in goat.
    First of all, in vitro fatigue test machine has been innovated in order to reproduce the above mentioned in-vivo fatigue test results. Dynamic conditions which enabled the identical forces between accelerated and normal cycles were determined : maximum load during valve closure was 5.2N (increased by 20% to the normal), and impulse was 2.5*10^<-2>N・s. Under this condition, valves were ruptured for 1.0*10^7 cycles, but no distinct creep was noticed. Secondary, a temperature of the test-fluid was changed from 20゚C to 50゚C,expecting a creep effect to the membrane shape. Change in shape of the membrane was observed after 3.2*10^6 cycles, however, its distortion value was only 50% of the animal experimental results. For the next step, a material of the membrane was changed from polyurethane to polystirene to achieve bigger change in shape. As a result, the identical distortion level was successfully reproduced, but a location of the ruptured area was different between in vitro and in vivo results. In order to clarify the above mentioned difference, FEM analysis was performed. The calculated result exhibited that there are three major areas of the maximum elastic strain between two spokes. Moreover, it was confirmed that the ruptured areas observed by both in vitro/in vivo results could be fully superimposed to the areas of the calculated maximum elastic strain.
    Further investigation should by carried out to determine more reliable methodology for fatigue testing, based on the in vitro and FEM analysis data.

    実験では,短時間の運動負荷による小さな変化を測定するために,測定速度・測定精度・非接触性に留意した.体表温度測定には非接触測定が可能なサーモカメラを採用した.センサー部で発生するノイズは,高速な測定速度を利用した断続移動平均法により,測定速度1〔秒〕以下,測定精度が0.1〔℃〕程度の高性能の測定系となった.また,皮膚血流測定にはレーザードップラー血流系を採用した.皮膚血流変化を,測定速度1〔秒〕以下,測定精度1〔ml/min/100g〕程度で採取することができた.
    生理学では,皮膚血流量が皮膚温度を制御するとされている.しかし,運動負荷に対する短時間の末梢循環の応答は,その限りではないことが実験結果から明らかになった.このような現象を,温度の違う血流の流入配分に起因するものと考え,皮膚温度と皮膚血流の関係を探った.運動負荷実験の結果,筋温度は鋭いピークで一瞬上昇し,逆に皮膚温は急激に下がってなだらかに回復したのに対し,筋血流と皮膚血流は共に運動負荷中に上昇する傾向を示し,前述の血流流入配分と皮膚温度の関係を裏付けるような結果となった.上記をはじめとする数々の実験を経て,末梢における循環系の,運動負荷に対する振る舞いをある程度把握できるようになったが,最適訓練法を提唱するには,まだ多種のパラメタの変動の相互関係を取得してゆくことが必要であることが同時に確認された.

     View Summary

    The Australian pulsatile ventricular assist device (VAD) has been named the "Spiral Vortex" (SV) pump after the continuous streamlines which develop within the pump housing during operation. In the chronic animal experiments performed in Australia, the SV pump was placed on the left side of the sheep's body. In a regular course, an experimental sheep can stand up in a few hours after the operation. The sheep can eat, drink and sleep in the container for the duration of the experiment. During VAD pumping with the bypass flow of 3.0-4,0 L/min, the level of plasma free hemoglobin was less than 10 mg/dl. At present, animal experiments are underway to confirm the superiority of the system in near "real-world" conditions. However, optimization of the SV design must be achieved through an engineering analysis prior to the development of a clinical quality model.
    In order to obtain fundamental data on the SV design, a comparative flow visualization study was planned in Japan using two different SV housings. Hydrodynamics test revealed that no significant difference in pump flow and inlet waterhammer between cone-shaped and dome-shaped SV pumps. However, outflow velocities in the cone-shaped pump were consistently lower than that in the dome-shaped during systole. and, peripheral flow velocities in the cone-shaped were also lower during diastole. Then, the domeshape recommended during the diastolic phase for decreasing the stagnation at D-H junction, whereas the cone-shape was recommended during the systolic phase for minimizing shear stress. The optimal SV housing design should be approached in the light of this data.

    The objective of this research was to develop a permanent use completely implantable total artificial heart system. Because of the risk and social problem associated with a nuclear power system, the motor driven system that utilizes eelectrical energy has been proposed to attain this goal. The system consists of a transcutaneous power transmission system, electrical motor driven total artificial heart(TAH), internal power storage system and controller and a compliance sysytem.In this research, feasibility of the motor driven heart and transcutaneous energy transmission system have been evaluated on the bench top mock circulatory loop. The transcutaneous energy transmission system has been constructed utilizing a litz wire and formed in a bount shape. Since the inner and outer diameter of the coil and number of turns, separation distance between the primary and secondary coils, alighnment of the center axis all affect the transmission efficiency of power, they were tested one by one prior to test in the animal and application to powering the electric heart. The maximum transmission efficiency of about 70% was obtained through the thoracic skin of goat. As an electric motor heart, a low speed and high torque DC brushless motor was selected. In order to convert the rotational motion of the motor to a recti-linear one, cylindrical cam was designed. As a control mode, in order to closely mimic the natural heart ejection pattern, leftand right simul-taneous ejection mode was selected. Thus, a double cam follower mechanism to realize this left-right simultaneous ejection mechanism was newly designed and fabricated and tested in the mock circulatory loop. This DC motor and cylindrical cam assembly was placed between the two pusher-plate type blood pumps that have a maximum stroke volume of 60cc. the bench top test demonstrated that the maximum pump output of about 9 1/min can be obtained against the left pump afterload of 100mmHg and right pump afterload of 25mmHg. the maximum electric heart efficiency was about 15%. This electric heart was powered by the transcutaneous energy transmission system in the bench top circulatory simulation system. it was confirmed that electric motor heart as powered by the transcutaneous energy trans-mission system can yield satisfactory performance to meet the original design goal. The endurance testing of the electric motor heart is under test and the to date the maximum run time of the system is approximately 10 days.

    本年度は、空気駆動式全人工心臓の駆動制御に必要な人工心臓機能監視装置の性能の検討と、臨床使用を考慮し、解剖学的FITTINGに優れた日本人用全人工心臓の試作と慢性動物実験による検討を行なった。
    人工心臓システムの制御性と操作性の向上のために、駆動ラインに組み込んだ空気流量計の、1)非侵襲的かつ連続的な人工心臓機能の監視、2)自動完全駆出、完全充満(Full-fill・Full-empty)モードでの駆動、3)人工心臓拍出量の計測、への応用について模擬回路および動物実験で検討した。その結果、空気流量計により、正常駆動時と人工心臓異常時に特徴的な流量波形が検出され、人工心臓の駆動状態の監視と異常の診断への応用の可能性が示唆され、また、空気流量計からの信号を用いて、自動Full-fill・Full-emptyモードでの駆動が安定して行なわれた。加えて、拡張期の空気流量波形を解析することにより求めた人工臓拍出量の計測は、電磁流量計による測定との間で高い相関と、ほぼ1:1の関係を示すことを明かとした。
    日本人の胸腔内の心臓周辺の寸法を核磁気共鳴断層撮影像を基に測定し、ヒトの解剖学的特徴を考慮してヒト用空気駆動式全人工心臓を試作した。抗血栓性の向上と胸腔内の寸法の制限に対処するために、大血管および心房と人工心臓を結合し、同時に人工弁を把持するコネクターのデザインも同時に改良した。体重53kgの子牛を用いた慢性動物実験でシステムの評価を行なったところ、胸腔内への装着は容易であった。また、術後急性期は中心静脈圧、左房圧、大動脈圧などの臨床的に一般に使用されるモニタを用いたが、それ以後は上述した人工心臓機能監視装置からの信号と駆動装置から得られる駆動圧波形の観察のみで循環動態の管理を行なっている。実験動物は術後23日目現在元気に生存しており、システムの優秀性が示された。

     View Summary

    In this project, the following three tasks were performed.
    (1) Therapeutic effect of VAD on bi-ventricular failure(BVF): the therapeutic effect of VAD on BVF were evaluated in experimental study. BVF was induced by aortic-clamping under normothermia in goats, and LVAD (8 goats) or BVAD (2 goats) was applied. Without the pulmonary hypertension, LVAD alone in combination with volume loading could maintain near normal circulation. In case of BVAD, it was easy to maintain the circulation without volume loading. The recovery possibility of BVF depends upon the severity of myocardial damage suffered before VAD application. (2) VAD for pediatric use; two sizes of airdriven, diaphrahm type VADs have been developed for pediatric use. Their stroke volumes were 20 ml and 40 ml. With mock loop test, sufficient output for pediatric use was obtained. In amimal experiment using dogs weighing from 10 to 20 kg, the conduit could be smoothly inserted into the left atrium and easily sutured to the aorta. (3) Development of a non-invasive and continuous monitoring method of cardiac output during LVAD pumping: In order to develop a method that can predict left ventricular stroke volume from arterial pulse pressure and pressue-flow relationship on the VAD, three methods were evaluated in a mock circulatory loop. As the pressure-flow relationship, arterial compliance, peripheral vascular resistance, and arterial impedance were used in the first, second, and third method, respectively. In comparison to electro-magnetic flowmetry, the 2nd and 3rd methods showed excellent correlation coefficient.
    Based on the above results, VADs were applied for 16 patients with cardiogenic shock. In nine of them entire circulation was well maintained at normal level and LVAD was successfully removed. Although the natural heart could recover, the most patients died of multiple organ failure which developed during prolonged ischemia prior to LVAD assistance. In clinical situation, timely use of LVAD by right judgement is important.

  • Development and evaluation of motor-driven, pusher-plate-type artificial heart system

     View Summary

    A pulse width modulation (PWM) algorithm with fixed duty ratio and variable voltage has been developed to drive and control the implantable electro-mechanical actuator for blood pumps. The actuator incorporated with a dc brushless motor was attached to a pusher-plate-type blood pump. Rotation of the motor is converted into a linear motion by a ball screw. The position of the pusher-pate was monitored with a Hall-effect sensor mounted on the back plate and a magnet attached to the plate. Any other monitors are not necessary for the open-loop operation of the pump. The size of the actuator is 50 mm OD and 30 mm length, and the weight is 480 g. Eight-bit and sixteen-bit microprocessor-based systems were used to drive the motor and to control the whole system, respectively.
    The torque performance of the motor assembled in the actuator was studied in detail for the development of the software which controls the speed and the input voltage of the motor without any feed back informations. The results indicated that the pump fulfills the specified performance.
    Software was developed based on the results obtained from the torque test. The sixteen-bit microprocessor controls the operation of the pump, monitoring the position of the pusher-plate in the systolic phase and using a timer in the diastole. The eight-bit microprocessor controls the phase of rotating magnetic field and input voltage of the motor according to the data table derived from the torque test.
    The system performance studied with a mock circulator satisfied the design specifications. The pump outflow of 6 1/min was obtained at the rate of around 100 bpm against the afterload of 100 mmHg. The temperature rise and the pump efficiency were around 6 % and 18 C, respectively.

  • An innovative treatment approach supporting development of surgeons' imaging by the TAAA Navigator

     View Summary

    We have developed a surgical navigation system called "TAAA Navigator", which is especially designed for aortic vascular surgery. The system consists of functions that are based on our recent studies : a multipoint-based registration algorithm on bone structure, a correction method of tissue thickness, a reference marker system tracking bed position, and a target detection method using both external and internal points on body. In this paper, we report a newly applied registration algorithm to correct errors derived from the tissue thickness of patients. A model formula was provided to analyze error factors on tissue thickness. The error components were divided into the average value and the deviation value. In this algorithm, the average value was regarded as the offset of tissue thickness and the deviation value was as the weight of the measurement. A phantom examination showed the offset was effective. To reveal the efficacy of the weight, further discussion would be needed

  • 臨床に直接貢献できる実用型小児先天性心疾患の血流シミュレーションシステムの構築

     View Summary

    我々は数値流体解析(CFD:computational fluid dynamics)の手法を用い、Norwood手術での血流動体を解析し、最適な術式を検討した。Norwood手術は今日最も重症な先天性心疾患である左心低形成症候群に対して生後早期に行う手術であり、今日最も難易度が高い手術の一つとされる。Norwood手術では大動脈を再建するが、これまでに様々な再建術式が報告されている。また再建後大動脈の曲や吻合部口径など形状の違いが心負荷、遠隔期予後に影響を与えるとされるが、その詳細は不明であった。まず、我々は小児の動脈内での拍動流を解析する手法を確立した。NorwOod術後患者の3D造影CTデータ(DICOM data)より患者に特異的な形状を作成し、心臓超音波検査で計測された血流データを境界条件として用い、3次元非定常Navier-Stokes方程式を解くことで解析を行った。解析結果を患者の心臓カテーテルデータで得られた血圧データを用いてvalidationを行った。末梢での反射波を想定することでより精度の高い生理学的な拍動流が実現された。この手法を用い、術式の異なる10症例の術後データを用い、CFD解析を行った。解析結果からエネルギー損失と血管壁にかかるshear stressを評価した。エネルギー損失は心拍出仕事量の約3~13%を占めることがわかった。遠位弓部に狭窄を伴う症例や、再建後の大動脈弓の角度が急峻になる症例では大動脈弓でのshear stressが高く、大きなエネルギーを損失した。パッチを用いる、下行大動脈に縦切開を置くなどの工夫をし、なだらかで狭窄のない大動脈弓が再建された症例ではエネルギー損失が低くなり、心負荷を軽減する可能性が示唆された。この解析システムが遠隔期予後を念頭に置いた術式の評価や術式の選択の上で非常に有用である可能性が示唆された

  • ステントレス僧帽弁の世界初の臨床応用を通じた医工学評価・予測技術の体系化

    2013  

     View Summary

    我国の僧帽弁手術は半数が人工弁置換、残りは外科的トリミングによる弁形成術である。僧帽弁置換術においては、人工弁置換による左心室機能の低下、弁輪サイズの制限や長期間の抗凝固療法といった課題が残されている。このような状況を改善するために加瀬川均医師(榊原記念病院)と共に考案したのがヒト僧帽弁構造と類似した構造を有するステントレス僧帽弁(NORMO弁)である。ステントレス僧帽弁は弁尖がステントに拘束されることなく、弁膜・乳頭筋の連続性が保持されるという世界に類を見ない独創的な人工弁である。この弁は榊原記念病院と京都府立医大の心臓血管外科、循環器内科との共同研究で合計8例の患者に臨床を実施している。いずれの症例でも逆流は劇的に解消し、弁前後の圧較差は低く維持され、現在まで良好な経過で推移している。一方で、心臓内科医によるエコー検査によれば術直後と比較すると狭窄気味であると指摘された症例もあり、手術場での手造りのため、品質にばらつきがあることが考えらえる。このばらつきの要因としては、(A) NORMO弁のデザインまたはマテリアル由来、(B) 心機能のリモデリング由来、(C) 外科手技の術技由来の3点が考えらえる。本研究では(A) マテリアル由来に注目し生体材料の構造力学解析手法の確立に取り組んだ。特に、NORMO弁に負荷するひずみを実験的・数値的に明らかにするため、(1) 多粒子トラッキングを用いた非接触でのひずみ分布計測法の検討、(2) 有限要素法を用いたひずみ分布算出のための解析条件の検討を行った。以下にその結果を概略する。(1) 多粒子トラッキングを用いたひずみ測定方法の検討 φ60mmの円形に切出した未処理のウシ心膜に銅粒子(90~150μm)を等間隔に付着させ、荷重を与える前後の粒子の形状および分布の変化をマイクロCTで撮像し画像解析によりひずみを測定した。その結果、中央部で最大ひずみ(0.249)が発生することが明らかになった。実験で用いたモデルに対し有限要素法を適用してひずみを算出し比較した。その結果、心膜中央部では同様の傾向を得た。一方で、心膜固定の縁付近では異なるひずみの傾向を示すことが明らかとなった。これは検査領域が粗く、表面積算出時の誤差が大きいことが要因と考えられ、検査領域を狭めることにより高精度での測定が可能であることが考えられる。以上より、生体材料のひずみ測定に多粒子トラッキングを使用できることが示唆された。(2) 有限要素法を用いたひずみ分布算出のための解析条件の検討 ウシ心膜製のNORMO弁を空気圧にて閉鎖することにより、NORMO弁閉鎖時のひずみ解析モデルを取得した。形状はマイクロCTにて3次元的に計測し、得られたデータを基に3次元立体構築ソフトMimicsを用いて構築した。モデルの前尖と後尖は分離してあり、臨床の弁に近い構造とした。有限要素解析時の境界条件として弁輪、脚部先端を完全固定とし、左心室内圧を考慮して弁葉に120 mmHgの圧力を作用させた。エレメントサイズと次数の異なるメッシュ条件で解析を行い相当応力の最大値の比較を行った。その結果、エレメントの次数によって前尖の弁葉では相当応力に最大18%の差が生じることが明らかとなった。エレメントサイズを0.4 mmから0.2 mmに変更しても、相当応力の値は0.4 mmの2次要素を使用した結果と一致しなかったことから、エレメントの次数が解析結果に影響を与える要因の一つであることが明らかとなった。また、NORMO弁では前尖の脚部に最大応力が発生する可能性が高いことが判明した。 以上の結果から、ステントレス僧帽弁の臨床応用を通じて明らかとなった課題に対する医工学評価・予測技術の体系化に向けた基礎を構築した。

  • 医療レギュラトリーサイエンスの学問構築を支える究極型循環シミュレータの開発

    2012  

     View Summary

     日本胸部外科学会の報告では,弁膜症手術数は1997年から2009年の間に約2倍に増加しており,弁膜症外科治療の重要性は今後も増していくと考えられる.僧帽弁置換術においては,人工弁置換による左心室機能の低下,弁輪サイズの制限や長期間の抗凝固療法といった課題が残されている.このような状況を改善するために加瀬川均医師(榊原記念病院)が考案されたのがヒトの僧帽弁構造と類似したステントレス僧帽弁(NORMO弁)である.ステントレス僧帽弁は弁膜・乳頭筋の連続性が保持され,弁尖がステントに支持されないという世界に類をみない独創的な人工弁である.本研究では,ステントレス僧帽弁の流体性能を評価するため, 空気圧駆動装置を内蔵した拍動型循環シミュレータを用いて (1)機械弁とステントレス僧帽弁の流量性能比較評価,(2)弁吻合位置が拍出流量に与える影響の検討,(3)弁葉の形状が流量性能に与える影響の3点を検討した.以下にその結果を概説する.(1)機械弁とステントレス僧帽弁の流量性能比較評価 ステントレス僧帽弁の普及を目指し開催されたトレーニングセミナーにより,未経験医師が初めて製作した弁を用い性能評価を行った結果,比較対象とした機械弁(N=7)の平均流量は3.55±0.12L/minであったのに対して,加瀬川医師が製作したステントレス僧帽弁(N=8)の平均流量は4.72±0.35L/minと圧倒的に高い流量を拍出できることがわかった.一方,未経験医師が製作したステントレス僧帽弁4個はそれぞれ4.32 L/min,3.85 L/min,3.64 L/min, 3.35L/minであり,ばらつきがあった.しかし,未経験医師が製作したステントレス僧帽弁1個を除き,すべての弁が機械弁と同等以上の性能を示した.低流量であった弁に関しては,外科的に弁葉に改良を加えたことで流量が3.75L/minとなり,機械弁と同等以上の流量が確保できた.(2)弁縫合位置が拍出流量に与える影響の検討 ステントレス僧帽弁植え込み時における乳頭筋部への縫合位置が拍出流量に与える影響を検討した結果,縫合位置が心臓壁側において流量が最大となり,ステントレス僧帽弁の乳頭筋への縫着位置は現在採用されている心臓壁側が妥当であることが判明した.(3)弁葉の形状が拍出流量に与える影響の検討 ステントレス僧帽弁の弁葉の形状が拍出流量に与える影響を検討した結果,弁葉の切り込み形状を2~8mmの範囲で変えても弁性能は3.44~3.81L/minで大きな影響を与えないことが分かり,未経験医師でも十分に性能の良好な弁を製作できることが判明した.以上のごとく,循環シミュレータの応用の一つとして,新しいコンセプトのステントレス僧帽弁(NORMO弁)の非臨床データとしての特性の位置づけができたものと考えている.

    2010   岩崎清隆, 八木高伸

     View Summary

    東洋紡績社製補助人工心臓の弁にはSORIN-Carbocast弁(以下,SC弁)が使用されていたがSC弁の生産中止に伴いMedtronic-Hall弁(以下,MH弁)への移行が行われた.ここでは,シミュレータにより弁変更に伴う人工心臓の水力学・溶血特性を調査した.臨床使用のカニューレを模擬したWindkessel回路を用いて,SC弁及びMH弁の性能比較を行った.収縮期時間比のみ20~60%の範囲で変化させ,平均拍出流量と弁近傍の水撃値を計測した.水力学試験の結果に基づき,a)2種の弁において最大拍出流量が得られる駆動条件,b)収縮時間比を下げて2種の弁の流量が同一になる駆動条件で溶血量の比較を行った.豚新鮮血を使用し開始5分後及び1時間ごとの血漿遊離ヘモグロビン濃度,溶血量を示す指標として6時間後のN.I.H (Normalized Index of Hemolysis) を計測した.最大拍出時にMH弁の方が流量で12%,水撃値で14%高値を示し全体的にもMH弁の方が高値を示した.しかし,2種の弁において同一流量が得られる収縮時間比での水撃値はMH弁がSC弁よりも約20%低減した.a)の条件ではMH弁がSC弁よりも72%高値を示した.しかしb)の条件でのMH弁のN.I.H値は0.03g/100Lで,最大拍出時と比べ約33%の低減をすることができた.また,SC弁との比較では約16%高い結果となった.MH弁はSC弁と比較して拍出性能が高いため収縮時間比を下げて駆動してもSC弁使用時の拍出性能を維持でき,かつ水撃の低減を通じて溶血を低く抑えることができる.臨床においてSC弁よりも低い収縮時間比での駆動が適切であると結論づけられた.

    近年、心臓外科領域においては患者、心臓外科医の双方にとってリスクのない方法による、基本的な心臓外科手術手技の日常的訓練手段が求められている。WETLABとは、解凍ブタ心臓を用いた訓練手段であり、生体組織の感触が得られるメリットがあるが、衛生面、および準備等の煩雑さに課題があるため、病院内での日常的訓練手段としては普及が困難である。当研究室では、日常的訓練を実現するため、解凍ブタ心臓を高分子製血管モデルで代替した冠動脈バイパス訓練装置を開発してきた。本研究では、訓練用冠動脈モデルの精密な機械的強度の調節手段を確立するため、シリコーンゴムの均一材料により成形された単層構造の従来型高分子製血管モデルの多層化を行った。具体的には以下の方法により研究を行った。(1)

  • 機械式血液循環シミュレータによる脳動脈瘤の治療支援技術の確立

    2007  

     View Summary

     脳動脈瘤の破裂は,血流による力学的な刺激が関与していると考えられている.現在の臨床では,瘤を発生部位や大きさ等から評価しており,血流の影響を踏まえた瘤破裂の予測評価技術の確立が求められている.そこで本研究では,破裂及び未破裂瘤4症例の瘤内流れを比較し,破裂に影響を与える流れ要素を検討した.(1)実験対象の選定とモデル内流れの可視化実験対象は,①破裂瘤:72歳 最大瘤径6mm②未破裂瘤:54歳 最大瘤径16mm ③未破裂瘤:64歳 最大瘤径11mm ④未破裂瘤:60歳 最大瘤径9mm の4症例とした.これらの3D-DSAデータを内部形状としたシリコーンモデルを,ロストワックス法を駆使して製作し,生体内頸動脈の力学的特性(1.4±0.4×10-3 1/mmHg)と合致するモデルを使用した.ヒト内頸動脈の血流を再現する際には,作動流体に血液粘度と同値のグリセリン水溶液(粘度3.8 cP)を用い,平均流量は330mL/min,心拍数は70bpmとした.時系列PIV法により瘤内の流れ特性を定量的に評価した.(2)モデル内流れの3次元構造破裂例である①での主流はジェット状であり80cm/s以上の高速度を維持したまま瘤壁に沿って直進し瘤頭部に達していた.また,瘤頭部近傍に有するブレブ部分では,主流とは異なる2次流れを形成していた.②では,主流は瘤形状に沿わず瘤内部を通過して瘤頭部に達した.①と同様,ブレブ部分を含め主流の通らない領域において,2次流れを形成していた.これに対し,③と④の流れ形態は共通して①②と異なり,瘤形状に沿った旋回流を主流とし,常時主流の通らない領域はなく,2次流れは見られなかった. 脳動脈瘤の形状は患者ごとに多種多様であるが,本研究により破裂・未破裂の違いに応じて瘤内流れは異なりその特性を差別化できる可能性が示された.今後は数値解析も含め大規模解析を行い破裂・未破裂を差別化する血流パラメータを検討していく予定である.

    外科手術手技は“匠の技”とされ,外科医の長期間に及ぶ訓練・経験による培われるものである.近年,目覚しい進歩を遂げている医療ロボティクス技術の更なる発展のためには手術の熟練,すなわち“匠さ”の本質的理解が求められる.本課題では,心臓血管外科領域において一般的な冠動脈バイパス手術における血管吻合手技を研究対象とし,種々の定量評価手法に関する基礎的検討を行った.具体的には次のようなアプローチを採択した.(1) 実体モデルの設計・製作(冠動脈:左前下行枝,グラフト:左内胸動脈)(2) 術野環境を再現する胸腔シミュレータの設計・製作(胸部正中切開下におけるon-beatモデル)(3) 熟練医,及び未習熟医による血管吻合手技の高速度カメラによる撮影,観察.心臓外科医の手術手技データを取得するためには,被験者である医師に対して極度な違和感を与えない程度の術野環境の重要であると考えた.製作された血管モデル(冠動脈,グラフト)は①ヒトと同様の内膜・中膜・外膜による三層構造を有しており,さらには②手技による局所的な負荷により裂開する機械的な脆弱性を付与した.術野環境の再現においては,①外科器械への拘束条件となる開胸面積,②術野深度,③心拍動,④心臓の解剖に基づいた冠動脈モデルの配置を再現した心拍動シミュレータを新たに設計・製作した.これにより心臓外科医に対して違和感を与えることなくin vitroで血管吻合手技が行える環境を整えることができたと言える.本装置を用い,心臓血管外科学会において複数の心臓外科医の血管吻合手技の高速度カメラによる観察を行ったところ,熟練医と未習熟医の差異として,心拍動への柔軟な追従性が異なることが示唆された.高速度カメラによる動画像は画像解析手法により定量的取り扱いが可能であり本アプローチが有効であることが伺えた.

     脳動脈瘤は破裂するとクモ膜下出血を起こし,そのうち約50%が死亡する危険な血管病変である.従って,脳動脈瘤の破裂やそれに伴う治療について工学的支援に基づく定量的な予測法の確立が期待されている.従来より瘤内流れは破裂に密接に関係する一つの影響因子として考えられてきた.しかし,血管形状の多様性により,破裂する瘤の流れの特性は解明されていない.よって,瘤内の流れを忠実に再現し,流れの特性を系統化することは重要であると考えられる.そこで本研究では,実際の患者の脳動脈瘤の形状と弾性を模擬したモデルを製作した.血流を忠実に再現することで瘤内の流れの特性を理解することを目的とした. まず,患者の脳動脈瘤の三次元血管造影データからロストワックス法を駆使しシリコーン製の実形状弾性脳動脈瘤モデルを製作した.その力学的特性は単位体積当りのコンプライアンスで評価され,±15%の再現性を持ち,ヒト脳動脈と同等の特性を再現した.また,ヒト内頸動脈の最大流量,平均流量,圧力を模擬した拍動型脳循環シミュレータを製作した.そして,脳動脈瘤内の流れの構造を計測するため,Dynamic PIV可視化実験を行なった. 時系列速度ベクトル解析を多断面で行った結果,瘤付け根のネック部において流入と流出の立体交差が観察された.流出の流れが流入の流れの下に潜り込み,流入の流れの有効断面積が縮小することで加速され,局所的に最大流速が85.1cm/sまで達する領域が存在した.このことから収縮期には流入部血管壁に4Pa程度の壁面せん断応力が加わっていることが示唆された.流入の流れは瘤先端部では常に位置が変動する小さな渦に変化し,不安定な流れとなっていた.このことから,瘤先端部の壁面には周期的な変動ストレスが加わっている可能性が示唆された.本研究より,脳動脈瘤の破裂や治療予後の予測評価のための流れの特性を系統化することが可能となった.

    本研究は、直視下で弁挙動の観察が可能で、血行動態に基づいた手技の有効性を把握することを目指した僧帽弁形成術評価装置を設計・製作し、現在臨床で使用されている各種人工弁輪の特性比較を行なうことを目的とした。本装置を用いて工学的見地から臨床現場に対して手技選択に関して実証的な根拠を提示することが可能になれば、効果的で質の高い患者中心の医療が実現可能になると考えられる。医療現場に近い環境を構築するために心エコー検査データから頻出する僧帽弁閉鎖不全をin vitroで忠実に再現した。弁輪拡大は、ラテックスラバーに縫合したブタ僧帽弁を後尖方向に10mm伸展することで実現し、弁口面積が約41%増加することがみとめられた。この僧帽弁閉鎖モデルに対して、4つの人工弁輪の比較評価試験を行なった。評価項目は、僧帽弁閉鎖不全症の重症診断に用いられる心収縮期における僧帽弁逆流量及び拡張期における有効弁口面積である。すべての人工弁輪において収縮期における逆流の抑止効果及び拡張期において弁口面積が縮小することが確認された。逆流の抑止効果はClassic ringにおいて顕著に観察され、逆流量の比較において37.3%、弁口面積において15.2%の軽減が見られた。逆に、Duran Flexible ringは逆流量において0.3%、弁口面積において3.4%の減少に留まった。以上のごとく本研究において製作された僧帽弁形成術評価試験装置を用いてin vitroにおいて人工弁輪の有効性を改めて証明することが可能となった。

    体外循環回路などの人工的な管路内での赤血球破壊(溶血)の力学的要因を分析し、その破壊メカニズムを解明する研究より各種形状の狭窄管路内の溶血を比較することで、溶血の原因が必ずしも剪断力のみによるものではないとの推論を得るに至っている。そこで、本研究では狭窄管の表面粗さに注目して、実際に新鮮血を用いて溶血と表面粗さの関係を求める実験を行い、それと並行して数値シミュレーションによる定常流解析を進めた。実験には溶血実験評価用体外循環回路として用いているものを流用し、狭窄部の表面粗さと溶血の関係を予測するために2つの実験を行った。(1) 表面粗さの溶血に及ぼす影響を調べる実験 アクリル製の基準用の狭窄管は表面粗さRa=1.35μmとしていたので、同一形状で新たにRa=0.54μm、Ra=2.00μmの2種の狭窄管を作製し、3者間での溶血の差異を調べた。循環時間6時間までの溶血量は、表面がなめらかなものほど溶血は少ないことが確認できた。(2) 狭窄間のどの部分の表面粗さが溶血に大きな影響を及ぼすかを調べる実験 15mmの狭窄部の一部の表面のみRa=1.35μm、他は0.54μmとする4種の狭窄管を作り、実験を行った結果、狭窄部入り口付近での表面粗さが溶血に大きく影響することが確認できた。狭窄部入り口付近において溶血量が多いのは、狭窄部での剥離及び再付着という流れの変化が激しいからと考えられる。そこで、剥離点、再付着点付近の表面粗さが管内の流れに与える影響を調べる目的で有限要素法による数値計算を行ったところ、計算と実験結果のよい一致を見た。1998.10日本ライフサポート学会・発表(予定)1998.10日本人工臓器学会・発表(予定)

     人工管路内を流れる血液に働く種々の外力が、血液中の赤血球破壊(溶血)に与える影響を定量的に評価することを目的として研究を行った。1995年度までの研究成果をもとに、内部表面粗さの異なる狭窄管、内径の異なるチューブ、角度の異なるベンド管を用意した。そして、従来の方式で牛血を循環させ、剥離域における壁面粗さ、血流中のせん断応力、二次流れやレイノルズ応力がそれぞれ赤血球の破壊に及ぼす影響を調べた。 まず、内部表面粗さを0.2~17.5[um]で10段階に変化させた狭窄管を作成した。これを用いた実験では、剥離域の壁面における表面粗さが3[um]程度以下の時に溶血が起こりやすく、4[um]程度以上の時は溶血量は一定の値に収束した。次に、チューブ内径を4.8~12.7[mm]で5段階に変化させた実験では、その溶血量はチューブ内径に反比例し、壁面近傍のせん断応力が影響することが分かった。また、ベンド管の実験では曲がり角度が急なほど溶血量が増えるが、その値は実用的にはほぼ無視できることが判明した。 総合的には、せん断応力による溶血よりも血流の壁面との衝突による溶血が大きくなる傾向があったが、牛血の個体差による実験誤差も大きく、今後の研究ではこの点の再考が必要である。

    本研究の最終目的は,ウェイトリフティングの最適訓練法を工学的解析をもとに提唱することである。 著者らは,運動にかかわる生体の血液循環,特に,筋肉,皮膚の末梢組織循環の応答を工学的に解明するという立場をとってきた。今までの研究によって末梢循環の挙動のごく一部の現象を説明しうる簡単な数式モデルを構築するまでに至った。しかし,それを複数の現象を説明しうる汎用モデルにまで改良を加えるには多くの試行錯誤の過程を踏まねばならない。 本研究では,まず重さの異なる(O-19kg)の負荷を足関節で保持したいわゆる等尺性保持運動負荷時の大腿部位の血行動態変化を調べた。この実験では,皮膚血流と皮膚温度の変化をレーザードップラー血流計とサーモグラフィーを用いて計測した。実験の結果,運動に対して皮膚温度は上昇したが,血液量はいつも増加するとは限らなかった。また,同一負荷(10kg)時の大腿部の2ヶ所の部位に対して同様の実験を行った結果,皮膚温度が下降するケースが多く見られた。 このような一見不規則にみえる末梢循環の応答特性の現象を説明するには,動脈と静脈の間の末梢部位を筋肉部と皮膚部に分割してとらえ,その2つを結合する血流の存在を考えるのが有効であることがわかった。これは組織学的には穿通枝と呼ばれ,この部位の血液温度は体内深部の筋肉温度を反映するため,皮膚に直接流れる血液温度よりわずかに高く測定される。皮膚温度は,この穿通枝と直接動脈から流れ込む血流の混合の結果によって決定されるという仮説をもとに,実験値を導入した数式モデルを作成した。その結果,運動に対して皮膚温度や皮膚血流量が増減する個々のケースに対してもに本モデルを用いることでその挙動が説明可能であることが示された。
