  • Patent number: 8771309
    Abstract: An occluding device including expandable scaffold and a flow-limiting member is described. In some embodiments the scaffold is an expandable or self-expanding stent deliverable over a guide wire. The flow-limiting member can include a valve that can be closed following deployment. On deployment the stent and flow-limiting member can engage an inner surface of a body cavity lumen, blocking flow of material. In some embodiments the body cavity is a blood vessel, and the device can be used to block blood flow. In some embodiments the device includes bioactive agents.

  • Publication number: 20120192872
    Abstract: Described are apparatus and methods for preventing sperm passage through a reproductive structure of a patient, and also for subsequently reversing the preventative measure in order to restore fertility to the patient. In some embodiments, the apparatus includes an elongate member arranged to form a frame having a distal and proximal opening and configured to be positioned within a lumen of the reproductive structure. The apparatus may also have a flow reducing member coupled to the frame such that when the frame is positioned within the lumen, the flow reducing member substantially impedes, reduces, or totally obstructs passage of sperm through the lumen.

  • Publication number: 20120095489
    Abstract: A device for delivering an expandable member to a luminal structure in a patient is described. In some embodiments, the device has a carrier member, with a carrier lumen extending at least partially therethrough. The device can have an elongate member that extends through the carrier lumen across a first notch in the carrier member. The device can have an expandable member that expands within and engages the luminal structure, can be carried by the carrier member, and has a first portion that fits within the first notch. When the elongate member extends through the carrier lumen and across the first notch, the elongate member secures the first portion to the carrier member. The elongate member is configured to move axially through the carrier lumen such that the elongate member permits release of the first portion from the carrier member and expansion of at least part of the expandable member.

  • Publication number: 20110319906
    Abstract: In some embodiments, an apparatus, for reducing or stopping flow through a tubular structure of a patient, includes an elongate member arranged to form a frame having a distal and proximal opening and configured to be positioned within a lumen of the tubular structure. The frame includes a proximal, distal, and middle portion. The distal portion is tapered such that an outer cross sectional dimension (OCSD) of the distal opening is less than an OCSD of the middle portion. The frame is configured to be inverted such that the distal portion moves within and toward the middle portion for removing the frame from within the lumen. The apparatus also comprises a flow reducing member coupled to the frame such that when the frame is positioned within the lumen, the flow reducing member substantially reduces or totally obstructs flow of at least one of emboli and fluid flowing through the lumen.
