Abstract: Surgical repair of lumen defects is associated with periprocedural morbidity and mortality. Endovascular repair with tissue adhesives may reduce host tissue damage, but current bioadhesive designs do not support minimally-invasive deployment. Voltage-activated tissue adhesives offer a new strategy for endoluminal repair. To facilitate the clinical translation of voltage-activated adhesives, an electroceutical patch (ePATCH) paired with a minimally-invasive catheter with retractable electrodes (CATRE) is challenged against the repair of in-vivo and ex-vivo lumen defects. The ePATCH/CATRE platform demonstrates the sealing of lumen defects up to 2 mm in diameter on wet tissue substrates. Water-tight seals are flexible and resilient, withstanding over 20,000 physiological relevant stress/strain cycles. No disruption to electrical signals was observed when the ePATCH was electrically activated on the beating heart. The ePATCH/CATRE platform has diverse potential applications ranging from endovascular treatment of pseudoaneurysms/fistulae to bioelectrodes towards electrophysiological mapping.
