  • Publication number: 20190235605
    Abstract: Deploying containers constrained by power profiles on a host system. A method includes identifying a container template, a set of reusable stored characteristics, to be used for deploying a container instance. The method further includes obtaining a power profile, defining at least one power consumption threshold, for the container instance based on at least one of the set of reusable stored characteristics of the container template or other information about the container instance. The method further includes deploying the container instance on the host system by applying the set of reusable stored characteristics and the power profile by applying one or more configuration layers which causes power to the container instance to be at least one of regulated or monitored based on information in the power profile.

  • Publication number: 20190163536
    Abstract: Dynamic container-based application resource tuning and resizing is disclosed. One or more container resource constraint values associated with a first container are accessed. One or more application resource constraint values based on the one or more container resource constraint values are determined. A first application execution of an application is initiated in the first container. The one or more application resource constraint values are provided to the first application execution. An analysis of a plurality of resource usage metrics generated during the first application execution of the application is performed. Each resource usage metric quantifies a use of a corresponding resource associated with the first container during the first application execution. One or more optimized container resource constraint values are determined based on the analysis.

  • Publication number: 20190146651
    Abstract: A method performed by an electronic device to allow a user to navigate a video. The method includes causing a display of a currently selected thumbnail in a first rectangular area overlaying a bidirectionally scrollable strip of thumbnails in a second rectangular area having the plurality of thumbnails logically arranged in order according to their associated time positions and responsive to data reflecting a swipe gesture in a direction, causing an update to the display of the bidirectionally scrollable strip of thumbnails to reflect inertial scrolling in the direction, where the currently selected thumbnail in the first rectangular area is updated each time the bidirectionally scrollable strip of thumbnails has scrolled past a threshold such that the currently selected thumbnail in the bidirectionally scrollable strip of thumbnails is no longer closest to the center of the first rectangular area.

  • Publication number: 20190038402
    Abstract: Methods of compressing a stented prosthetic heart valve are disclosed. The method including inserting a stented prosthetic heart valve having a self-expandable stent frame into a container, initiating a cooling element in the container, transferring heat through a thermal conductor to cool an interior of the container, reducing a temperature of the self-expandable stent frame while located within the container to a critical temperature of not greater than 8° C., and compressing an outer diameter of the stented prosthetic heart valve while the stented prosthetic heart valve is at the critical temperature.

  • Publication number: 20180318060
    Abstract: A “dry” packaging in which a prosthetic heart valve is packaged within a container with hydrogel that can be provided in many forms. Certain embodiments include hydrogel that is preloaded with glycerol or the like. The hydrogel regulates the humidity within the container through a diffusion-driven mechanism if a gradient of humidity between the inside and the outside of the hydrogel exists. Humidity regulation is important to prevent the tissue of the valve structure from drying out. When the partially-hydrated hydrogel is present within container, which is saturated with air of a predefined humidity, the water molecules from the air will be absorbed by the hydrogel if the air humidity is high (i.e. when the thermodynamics favor hydrogel hydration) or vice versa. Various embodiments are configured to also house at least a portion of a delivery device for delivering the prosthetic heart valve.

  • Patent number: 9968447
    Abstract: Methods of preparing a sheet of bioprosthetic tissue for use as a prosthetic valve leaflet are disclosed. A method includes positioning a sheet of bioprosthetic tissue across an engagement face of a first patterned substrate. The engagement face defines a pattern having at least one raised region and areas of relief adjacent the at least one raised region. The tissue is compressed against the engagement face to deform the tissue to a deformed state corresponding with the pattern.

  • Publication number: 20170056164
    Abstract: A transcatheter valve prosthesis including a sealing component formed from a tissue having an altered extracellular matrix. The altered extracellular matrix includes at least one weakened connection such that the tissue is configured to swell or expand upon contact with a fluid. The altered extracellular matrix does not reduce compressibility of the tissue such that the delivery profile of the transcatheter valve prosthesis is not adversely affected. The tissue having an altered extracellular matrix transforms from a compressed state for delivery within a vasculature to an expanded state in situ when blood infiltrates or flows within the at least one weakened connection. The sealing component in the expanded state conforms to the geometry of the native valve tissue, thereby preventing paravalvular leakage at the implantation site.
