Modification of Valve Replacements to Reduce Calcification
This invention is a modification of a replacement heart valve used for treating heart valve disease. The valve is modified with enzymes that generate adenosine, a known regulator of calcification. These tissue based heart valves will allow for the localized reduction of calcification, which will lead to a longer life span of the heart valve. Background:...

PVAD: a Linear, Pulsatile, Peristaltic Ventricular Assist Device Mechanism
This invention is a modified linear peristaltic pump. This pumps utilizes a pulsatile mechanism, other than a traditional rotary pump that is often used in ventricular assist devices, to pump the blood, which help decrease blood clots. Background: Ventricular Assistant Devices (VADs) help consistently pump from the lower chambers of the heart to...
