  • Publication number: 20220184355
    Abstract: The present technology relates to interatrial shunting systems and methods. In some embodiments, the present technology includes a system for shunting blood between a left atrium and a right atrium of a patient. The system can include a shunting element having a lumen extending therethrough. The lumen is configured to fluidly couple the left atrium and the right atrium when the shunting element is implanted in the patient. The system can also include a sensor configured to be implanted in the patient and operably coupled to the shunting element. An actuation element is coupled to the sensor. The actuation element is configured to be selectively energized and transmit a desired motion to the sensor to reduce the likelihood of tissue ingrowth/overgrowth and adhesion on at least a portion of the sensor.

  • Patent number: 11285002
    Abstract: The invention includes methods of and apparatus for endovascularly replacing a heart valve of a patient. One aspect of the invention provides a method including the steps of endovascularly delivering a replacement valve and an expandable anchor to a vicinity of the heart valve in an unexpanded configuration; and applying an external non-hydraulically expanding or non-pneumatically expanding actuation force on the anchor to change the shape of the anchor, such as by applying proximally and/or distally directed force on the anchor using a releasable deployment tool to expand and contract the anchor or parts of the anchor. Another aspect of the invention provides an apparatus including a replacement valve; an anchor; and a deployment tool comprising a plurality of anchor actuation elements adapted to apply a non-hydraulically expanding or non-pneumatically expanding actuation force on the anchor to reshape the anchor.

  • Publication number: 20220087554
    Abstract: The present technology generally relates to hemodynamic monitoring devices, as well as delivery systems adapted for the implantation of implantable pressure sensors or other implantable devices. In some embodiments, for example, the present technology includes a method of implanting a pressure sensing implant in a human patient. The method includes intravascularly advancing a delivery device carrying the pressure sensing implant toward a pulmonary artery of the patient, and sensing pressure in at least one of a right atrium, a right ventricle, and the pulmonary artery of the patient using a pressure sensing device carried by the delivery device. Sensing the pressure occurs before the pressure sensing implant is fully deployed in the pulmonary artery from the delivery device.

  • Publication number: 20210378815
    Abstract: An intraocular lens (TOL) for implantation within a capsular bag of a patient's eye comprises an optical structure and a haptic structure. The optical structure comprises a planar member, a plano convex member, and a fluid optical element defined between the planar member and the plano convex member. The fluid optical element has an optical power. The haptic structure couples the planar member and the plano convex member together at a peripheral portion of the optical structure. The haptic structure comprises a fluid reservoir in fluid communication with the fluid optical element and a peripheral structure for interfacing to the lens capsule. Shape changes of the lens capsule cause one or more of volume or shape changes to the fluid optical element in correspondence to deformations in the planar member to modify the optical power of the fluid optical element.
