  • Patent number: 10994109
    Abstract: There are provided a connectable catheter system, device and methods of use thereof. The connectable catheter system, comprising: an intermediary catheter comprising an external section and a tip section, the tip section is configured to be inserted into a body of a subject; and a reconnectable indwelling stent comprising a connecting section and a target section, the target section being configured to be located within a body of the subject, wherein the connecting section of the reconnectable indwelling stent is configured to reversibly connect, within the subject body, to the tip section of the intermediary catheter to form a continuous conduit between the intermediary catheter and the reconnectable indwelling stent.

  • Patent number: 10039832
    Abstract: A hydrophilic biocompatible sustained-release material is disclosed. The material comprises amounts of Pluronic F-127, PEG-400, HPMC and water, effective to produce a composition of sufficiently low viscosity at room temperature to be injectable into an internal body cavity via a tube inserted within a urinary catheter. At body temperature, the material exhibits a much higher viscosity and will stably adhere to the internal surface of a body cavity. As the material dissolves, a therapeutic agent incorporated therein is slowly released to the body cavity, while the material itself is excreted from the body.

  • Patent number: 9884028
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods for treatment of an internal cavity are provided. The internal cavity is coated with a treatment solution. The treatment solution can include a solidifiable matrix with or without a drug or combination of drugs incorporated therein, or a drug solution without a solidifiable matrix. The treatment solution is coated onto at least a portion of the internal cavity, and acts as a slow-release drug delivery system.

  • Publication number: 20170143833
    Abstract: A method is disclosed for production of a sterile thermoreversible hydrogel characterized by a known temperature Tmin at which the viscosity reaches at least a local minimum. In a preferred embodiment of the invention, the method comprises dissolving the components in water within ±4° C. of Tmin; forming the thermoreversible hydrogel; and filtering the thermoreversible hydrogel at Tmin. The final sterilization can be obtained by filtering under aseptic conditions or by autoclaving or irradiation of the final product. In other embodiments, the components of the gel are dissolved in a sufficiently large quantity of water that reduces the gel viscosity or precludes formation of a thermoreversible hydrogel, and sufficient water is then removed under vacuum to produce the final thermoreversible hydrogel.
