*** Koninklijke Philips Electronics Assigned Patent for Method and Apparatus for Guidance and Application of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound for Control of Bleeding Due to Severed Limbs ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 22 -- Koninklijke Philips Electronics, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, has been assigned a patent (8,353,834) developed by four co-inventors for a "method and apparatus for guidance and application of high intensity focused ultrasound for control of bleeding due to severed limbs." The co-inventors are Helen Routh, New York, John Fraser, Woodinville, Wash., John Petruzzello, Carmel, N.Y., and Shervin Ayati, Carlisle, Mass.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An ultrasonic diagnostic and therapy system is described for stopping the bleeding of severely damaged blood vessels or vessels severed in a limb amputation. A cuff is attached to the stump of the severed limb which contains a diagnostic transducer array and a HIFU transducer. The diagnostic transducer surveys the tissue of the severed limb, searching for a Doppler flow signal. When a Doppler flow signal is detected, the range to and coordinates of the sample volume where the flow was detected are determined, as well as the flow velocity. This information is supplied to a HIFU therapy transducer controller, which controls the HIFU transducer to transmit focused ultrasound to the sample volume of the flow locus, the center of the lumen of a blood vessel. The focused ultrasound heats and coagulates blood in the severed vessel to stem the bleeding. Heat dissipation due to the blood flow is reduced by tracking and continuously heating the same bolus of blood as it flows, or by heating a significant length of the blood vessel instead of a fixed spot in the vessel." The patent application was filed on Dec. 7, 2006 (12/096,716).
