Brain Endovascular Therapeutics Research and Development Lab
The Brain Endovascular Therapeutics Research and Development Lab is a platform that brings together different competencies from the medical and engineering fields. The Brain Endovascular Therapeutics Research and Development Lab focuses on the development and evaluation of endovascular devices used in interventional neuroradiology for the treatment of ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke (stents, coils, catheters). In addition, the laboratory develops new image processing methods based on artificial intelligence to guide endovascular treatments.
- Development of a robotic assistance device for the endovascular treatment of ischemic stroke. Project funded by the SNSF in collaboration with Dr. Mohamed Bouri affiliated or Translational Neuro Engineering group (Biotech Campus) headed by Professor Silvio Micera
- Development of a "Flow diverter" type implant for the endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms. Project in collaboration with Medtronic Neurovascular.
- Development of new diagnostic methods based on artificial intelligence to optimise endovascular treatments.
- Applied research. Based on clinical experience, we are conducting various in vitro research studies to evaluate the role of vascular anatomy, clot composition and the combination of different revascularisation methods in the management of ischemic stroke with the aim of developing faster and more effective revascularisation strategies while limiting the risks.
- Device evaluation platform for endovascular treatment of neurological conditions. The mechanical properties of devices and their interactions with tissues are studied using specific vascular measurement tools and models. These studies make it possible to highlight the mechanical characteristics linked to the effectiveness of the devices.
