Kevin McShane, MS Candidate in the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems, collaborated on a review article accepted for publication in the Journal of Spinal Cord Medicine titled, "Diaphragm Pacing Using the Minimally Invasive Cervical Approach” (Co-authors D. B. Headley, St. Joseph Hospital and Medical Center Department of Surgery, Phoenix, AZ; A. G. Martins, Avery Biomedical Devices, Commack, NY; and D. A. Grossblat, Valley Anesthesiology Consultants, Phoenix, AZ). The authors explored the potential effects that implantation technique might have on device longevity and patient outcome according to an Avery Biomedical Devices patient database. The device in this case is a diaphragm pacemaker that can be implanted cervically or thoracically.
