  • Patent number: 10661022
    Abstract: A substance delivery device that includes a hypodermic needle with a tube for receiving and containing a volume of a substance. The substance delivery device includes a rod, a portion of which is of a size and shape to fit within the tube of the hypodermic needle. The rod can be displaced into and within the tube to contact and apply a force to a volume of substance contained within the tube to cause, at least in part, the volume of substance to be discharged out of the tube. The substance delivery device includes a rod displacement mechanism that applies a force to the rod to cause the rod to be displaced into and within the tube. The substance delivery device also includes a needle retraction mechanism that is configured to apply a force to the hypodermic needle to cause the hypodermic needle to retract from within a patient.

  • Publication number: 20190240005
    Abstract: Nasal implants and nasal implant delivery tools are described herein. The nasal implants and tools can be used to deliver the implant in a minimally invasive way. The delivery tools can be adapted to separate the upper lateral cartilage from the septum and to place an implant between the septum and the upper lateral cartilage. The implant can be configured to be placed between the upper lateral cartilage and the septum. The implant system can include a first longitudinal body adapted to engage with upper lateral cartilage and the septum on a first side of the septum and a second longitudinal body adapted to engage with upper lateral cartilage and the septum on a second side of the septum.
