Gift Aids Professor's Research into Vein Treatment
Date:12/1/2008

rms endovenous ablation of the varicose veins.

The senior design project team of Courtney Maxey, Lindsey Hobdy and Crystal Condra worked on the initial design. Hyun and biomedical students Rob Vines and Matthew Bradley worked to perfect it in conjunction with one of his research collaborators, Kenneth Harper, M.D., of Vein Associates of the South. Hyun and another student are now working to test the efficacy of the device and gather the results. Hyun said he hopes to have the device ready for presentation at the 2009 Summer Bioengineering Conference.

"We're very happy to have received this gift. It gave my students a great hands-on learning opportunity and a chance to work on true biomedical engineering project," said Hyun. "In addition, it has helped Dr. Harper and I to advance our research in varicose vein treatment."

Hyun said that his students have been invaluable to his work, and that they have gained invaluable experience as well through the project.

"This has been an opportunity for students to help advance my research as well as build on their skills and I'm grateful to VNUS for the opportunity they have provided us," Hyun said.

The new device will remove the catheter from the varicose vein automatically, rather than by hand, as it is currently done. Hyun said that he is likely to present his new medical device in the next several weeks and hopes Dr. Harper and VNUS are interested in the new design.

"It has been a good collaboration between Dr. Harper and me, and in this project, he has helped me to gather test data on this new device," Dr. Hyun said. "With this data, I should be able to present a full report to the company by summer."

VNUS said that the gift was important to it as well, giving an affilia
