Mark Rentschler (mechanical engineering) and Max Mitchell (cardiothoracic surgery) has resulted in the development of a novel cardiac camera that allows clinicians to rely on a direct video representation when monitoring for cardiac anomalies or proper device implantation. The camera provides unsurpassed visibility (particularly in smaller hearts, as in pediatrics or animal surgery) with minimal tissue invasion, and can also be outfitted with a number of tools for manipulation of the cardiac tissue. In particular, it could be used to precisely guide catheter-based instruments for interventions such as device placement, suturing, etc. The camera can also serve as a verification tool to ensure proper placement, operation, and effectiveness of cardiac intervention devices.
