Percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation has emerged as an attractive and less invasive alternative to open-heart surgery. Nevertheless, major technical challenges and procedural complications may still occur. We report a 44-year-old woman with severe dextroscoliosis, and history of Tetralogy of Fallot repair, who underwent an attempt at percutaneous implantation of a 23-mm Edwards SAPIEN transcatheter heart valve (THV) for recurrent stenosis of the right ventricle to pulmonary artery conduit. The procedure was complicated by valve migration into the right ventricle requiring emergent surgical removal using inflow-occlusion technique to avoid cardiopulmonary bypass. A hybrid off-pump perventricular approach was then used in the operating room to successfully implant a 26-mm Edwards Sapien THV under fluoroscopic guidance. Copyright © 2010 Wiley-Liss, Inc. Source

Methods, systems, and devices are described for using a central server computer system disposed to dynamically manage collaboration between terminal devices and peripheral devices during a virtual session. The central server computer system may associate a peripheral device with a virtual session hosted by a host device. The virtual session may be further associated with a terminal device communicatively coupled with the central server computer system. The central server computer system may establish a connection between the central server computer system and the peripheral device; forward peripheral data between the peripheral device and the host device such that the virtual session perceives the peripheral device as locally connected to the host device; and forward user interface data associated with the virtual session between the host device and the terminal device.

Systems, devices, and methods are described for initiating collaboration activities among multiple terminal devices. A central server computer system may receive a trigger event for a collaboration activity at a central server computer system; identify a set of participants in the collaboration activity; identify a current device associated with each of the identified participants; and apply a set of rules to the received trigger event and the identified participants to preemptively establish a bridge for the collaboration activity between each of the identified devices prior to a start of the collaboration activity.

Systems, devices, and methods for dynamically interpreting a script in a remote context are provided. A host device begins an interpretation of a script according to local context data of the host device. The script may be associated with a virtual session hosted by the host device on behalf of a terminal device communicatively coupled with the host computing device. The host device may recognize a language element in the script that indicates a portion of the script associated with interpretation according to local context data of the terminal device. The host device may receive results of an interpretation of the indicated portion of the script according to the local context data of the terminal device. The host device may continue interpreting the script according to the context data of the host computing device using the received results.

Systems, devices, and methods are disclosed for access token event virtualization. An access token may be received at a central server computer system from a terminal device. The access token event may indicate that an access device associated with the terminal device has received an access token. A virtual session associated with the received access token event may be identified at the central server computer system, and a set of rules may be applied to the received access token event and the identified virtual session to determine an action associated with the identified virtual session. The central server computer system may transmit an instruction to at least one device communicatively coupled with the central server computer system to carry out the action associated with the identified virtual session.
