Nontoxic, variable-stiffness threads for dexterous cardiac catheters
Engineers at EPFL and ETH developed a variable stiffness catheter made of nontoxic threads that can transition between soft and rigid states during surgery. It may make minimally invasive surgical interventions, including the treatment of cardiac arrhythmia, simpler and more effective.
