  • Patent number: 11512416
    Abstract: An medical implantable occlusion device (100) is disclosed having a collapsed state and an expanded state and comprising a braiding (101) of at least one thread, and a distal end (102) comprised of said braiding. The distal end comprises loops (103, 104, 204, 304) formed by loop strands (105, 106, 206, 306) of the at least one thread, wherein, at least in said expanded state, each loop strand has a curved shape and extends away from a centre point (117) of the distal end, whereby an apex point (107, 108, 208, 308) of each of the loop strands corresponds to the turning point of the curved shape and to the point of each of the loop strands being arranged closest to the centre point. At least one of the loop strands is displaced from the centre point by a centre distance (109, 110, 210, 310), and the apex point lie at a distance from a periphery (113) of the distal end.

  • Publication number: 20220202401
    Abstract: The invention discloses an occluder for a structural heart defect, comprising a tubular interlaced structure having a pitch that varies along an axial length of the occluder; a proximal element; a distal element; and an intermediate element extending between the proximal element and the distal element. According to one aspect, at least one transition section of the pitch, from a first pitch to a second pitch, is located closer to the intermediate element of the occluder than an outer circumference of at least one of the proximal elements and the distal element when the occluder is in a relaxed state. According to another aspect, the occluder is extendible from the relaxed state to an axially extended state wherein the load to extension ratio, measured in N/mm, provided by the occluder is less than about 0.75 when extended at least 2 mm.
