  • Patent number: 7994802
    Abstract: An apparatus (1) is used to examine or monitor the state or state of health of plants (2) with the aid of a bipolar electrode (4) which uses its at least two different poles (5) to measure corresponding potentials of the plant and supply them to a detector and/or memory (7), in particular via an amplifier (9), with the result that conclusions regarding the state of, or the possible damage to, a plant (2) can be drawn from changes in the electrical signals and can ensure remedial action.

  • Publication number: 20110137413
    Abstract: A breast implant (1) having a flexible, but impermeable casing (2) and with an electrically conductive filling (3) is provided with an internal electrode (4) and an external electrode (5), with the electrodes being connected to a resistance or impedance measurement device integrated in a transponder (6). In case of perforation of the casing (2), if filling (3) escapes, then the electrical contact between the electrodes (4) and (5) is completed, and a drop in resistance or impedance is registered by the measurement device. In suspicious cases, the implant could be inspected of the measured resistance or impedance values with an external transmitter-receiver unit (13 or 14) and dangerous damage to the breast implant could be determined.

  • Publication number: 20100004679
    Abstract: A medical device (1), in particular an occlusion instrument, for closing congenital or pathologically formed openings in the human body, with a collapsible braid (2) of wires and/or filaments made of nitinol or of similar material having a shape-memory effect, wherein the ends (3) of the wires or filaments of the braid are brought together by at least one closure assembly (4) and are held there. To ensure a secure connection of the free ends (3) of the wires of the braid (2), and to be able to easily handle the device and connect it quickly and reliably in a releasable manner to a positioning means, it is provided that the closure assembly (4) is formed by a sleeve into which the ends (3) are inserted and clamped in order to secure them against escape from the sleeve. Good clamping is provided by a clamping element (5) separate from the sleeve.

  • Publication number: 20090306706
    Abstract: An occlusion element (1) for unwanted openings in the heart is provided. The braid forming the occlusion element (1) is radially constricted in a middle area (3) that passes through the opening in the heart when it is in the position of use, such that, on both sides of this constricted middle area (3), braided occlusion discs (4) and (5) are formed, which engage on both sides over the edges of an unwanted opening in the heart in the position of use. In the starting position, prior to the constriction of the middle area (3), a tubular braid is formed with a double wall along at least part of its axial extent, having a first braid portion (6) of smaller cross section surrounded at a distance on the outside by a second braid portion (7) of greater cross section.

  • Publication number: 20090281567
    Abstract: An occlusion element (1) for closing an unwanted opening in the heart having two occlusion disks (3) formed from a braid of threads (2) is provided, wherein the threads (2) and the braid of these occlusion disks are each held by a sleeve or holder (5) and (6). The two occlusion disks (3) are initially separate and can be connected with their respective holders (5) and (6), which are oriented toward each other for forming the final shape of the occlusion element (1). The holders (5) and (6) form a spacing between the two occlusion disks (3) and a region (4) with reduced radial dimensions relative to the occlusion disks (3), and provide an arrangement where there are no projecting holders for the braid or threads on the outsides or end faces of the occlusion element (1) and the occlusion disks (3).

  • Publication number: 20090210001
    Abstract: A device (1) used for the implantation of an occlusion (2) in an undesired opening in a septum (3) in a heart (4) is provided and has a catheter (5) with a displacement element (7) (pusher) that can move in a longitudinal direction of the catheter in the interior and on whose distal end the occlusion (2) is fixed detachably and can be brought into its position of use, whereupon the displacement element (7) is detached again from the occlusion (2). The occlusion (2) connected to the displacement element (7) is arranged for the implantation process in the distal end region of the catheter (5) and is completely or at least partially enclosed by this end region.

  • Publication number: 20080009928
    Abstract: A device (1) for fastening an electrode (2) in the pacemaker bed before the entry (6) of the electrode (2) into a vein (4) is provided, and includes a sheath (9) having two parts (7) and (8), with a hose (10) extending through their interior. The two parts (7) and (8) of the sheath (9) are profiled at the contacting edges of a common separating point (11) so that they are fixed in reference to one another in the rotational direction until a user pulls them apart beyond the axial extension of the profiling. In this pulled-apart position the parts of the sheath can be rotated in reference to one another under torsion of the hose and subsequently, due to the restoring force of the hose (10), be again guided together axially, which reduces the interior cross-section of the hose and allows a form-fitting grasping the electrode (2) extending therethrough.

  • Publication number: 20060052857
    Abstract: A pacemaker electrode array (1) which includes a pacemaker electrode (5) that acts upon the outside of a heart (2) and that is disposed with one pole (3), in the operational position, in the cardiac tissue and extends to an implanted pacemaker (4). The array includes a puncturing needle (7) and an insertion tube (8) for the puncturing needle to assist in installation. The inner diameter of the tube is sufficiently large enough for the pacemaker electrode (5) to fit into the insertion tube (8) once the puncture needle (7) is withdrawn and to be introducible into the cardiac tissue while inserted in the tube. The introduction tube (8) can be withdrawn in a known manner or can be removed laterally through a lateral opening.

  • Patent number: 4633880
    Abstract: A surgical electrode which can be used as a temporary lead for cardiac pacing or monitoring purposes has two elongated conductors whose distal ends are provided with spaced-apart poles and are implanted in a single operation by means of a surgical needle which is separably secured to the distal end of one of the conductors. The proximal ends of the conductors are connected to an elongated extension which passes through and outwardly from the thorax to be connected to a pacemaker or to an instrument which makes electrocardiograms. The conductors are insulated from each other and that pole which is nearer to the needle is defined by one or more bare strands which have a zig-zag, undulate, helical and/or other shape allowing the strands to reduce the width of the respective pole during penetration into the heart wall.
