Tissue-Engineered Graft for Circumferential Esophageal Reconstruction in Rats In Gul Kim1, Yanru Wu2, Su A. Park3, Hana Cho1, Jung-Woog Shin2, Eun-Jae Chung1 1Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Seoul National University, College of Medicine, 2Department of Biomedical Engineering, Inje University, Gimhae, 3Department of Nature-Inspired Nanoconvergence Systems, Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials Esophageal reconstruction is a challenging procedure, and development of a tissue-engineered esophagus that enables regeneration of esophageal mucosa and muscle and that can be implanted as an artificial graft is necessary. Here, we present our protocol to generate an artificial esophagus, including scaffold manufacturing, bioreactor cultivation, and various surgical techniques.
Isokinetic Robotic Device to Improve Test-Retest and Inter-Rater Reliability for Stretch Reflex Measurements in Stroke Patients with Spasticity Minki Sin*1, Won-Seok Kim*2, Kyujin Cho3, Nam-Jong Paik2 1Department of Medical Assistant Robot, Daegu Research Center, Korea Institute of Machinery & Materials, 2Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, 3School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Seoul National University/IAMD Using a robotic isokinetic device with electromyography (EMG) measurements, this protocol illustrates that isokinetic motion itself can improve inter-rater reliability for the angle of catch measurements in stroke patients with mild elbow flexor spasticity.
