Evidence

Increased research focused on occupational health and effects of long-term radiation exposure continue to demonstrate the need for an improved work environment in the interventional fluoroscopy suite.  Additional insight into these proven health hazards is available through the series of publications, presentations and abstracts below.  As Radux Devices continues to research and promote improved occupational health, the data will be made available to readers.

 

STERILITY AND SURGICAL PROFICIENCY STANDTALL ASB 2016

USING AN INNOVATIVE ATTACHABLE RADIATION REDUCTION EXTENSION SUPPORT SHEATH REDUCES STERILITY BREAKS AND ENHANCES SURGICAL PROFICIENCY. Jung Hung Chien, et al. Presented at 40th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Biomechanics, Raleigh, NC, USA, August 2nd – 5th, 2016.

Ergonomic simulation study of an endovascular intervention for chronic limb threatening ischemia; comparing procedure access using standard ante-grade arterial access versus utilization of StandTall (Formally called ARRESS) extension support sheath. Evaluation in differences in Procedure Sterility and Operator Proficiency were analyzed to determine objective and subjective advantages from table top work-flow manipulation.


ERGONOMICS AND FATIGUE REDUCTION ACS 2016 Abstract

Improved Physician Ergonomics and Fatigue Reduction using the Attachable Radiation Reduction Extension Support Sheath (ARRESS) for Endovascular Procedures. Hernan Hernandez, MD et al. Oral Presentation at the Scientific Forum at The American College of Surgeons 2016 Clinical Congress. Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington D.C.,10/16-20/2016.

Oral presentation discussing promising occupational health benefits using the StandTall (ARRESS) during ante-grade arterial intervention versus performing procedure using standard ante-grade access. Presented at the 2016 American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress. Study demonstrates concrete, inexpensive steps to improve the ergonomic limitations in the endovascular suite. 


RADIATION STANDTALL SVS 2016 Abstract

Attachable Radiation Reduction Extension Support Sheath (ARRESS) to Reduce Radiation Exposure for Endovascular Specialists. Hernan Hernandez, MD et al. Oral Presentation at the Vascular & Endovascular Surgical Society Paper Session II at the Society for Vascular Surgeons 2016 Vascular Annual Meeting.06/08-11/2016, Harbor House, Maryland.

Oral presentation and Journal submission, discussing promising radiation safety benefits using the StandTall (ARRESS) during  ante-grade arterial intervention versus performing procedure using standard ante-grade access. Presented at the 2016 American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress. Study demonstrates concrete, inexpensive steps to improve the occupational health risks and limitations in the endovascular suite.
