  • Publication number: 20220218462
    Abstract: The techniques of this disclosure generally relate to a stent-graft system including a bifurcated stent-graft, a first bifurcating branch device, and a first branch extension. The bifurcated stent-graft includes a body, a first branch limb, and a second branch limb. The first bifurcating branch device includes a body segment coupled to the first branch limb of the bifurcated stent-graft, a first branch limb, and a second branch limb. The first branch extension is within the first branch limb of the first bifurcating branch device and within an external iliac artery. The first bifurcating branch device has a wide patient applicability since the treatment can be extended proximal to the anatomical iliac bifurcation and is not limited by the common iliac artery length. The stent-graft system is suitable to treat a wide range of internal and external iliac artery diameters.

  • Patent number: 11149519
    Abstract: A method of sealing a formation that includes drilling a wellbore through the formation while pumping a non-aqueous based wellbore fluid comprising a first sealing component into the wellbore, wherein the non-aqueous based wellbore fluid filters into the formation as a filtrate and substantially thickens is disclosed. The substantially thickening may result from adding a second sealing component to the wellbore fluid, whereby the first sealing component initiates a reaction of the second sealing component.
