  • Patent number: 10339757
    Abstract: A wagering game system and its operations are described herein. In some embodiments, the operations can include detecting a request to pair a mobile device with a secondary content controller that is communicatively coupled to a wagering game machine. In some examples the secondary content controller is independent of a primary content controller for the wagering game machine. The operations can further include determining, by the secondary content controller, that primary wagering game content of the wagering game machine is in a state that would permit secondary wagering on the primary wagering game content. Further, the operations can include pairing the mobile device with the secondary content controller after determining that the primary wagering game content is in the state that would permit the secondary wagering.

  • Publication number: 20170273775
    Abstract: Implantable medical devices and prosthesis for rapid regeneration and replacement of tissues, and methods of making and using the devices, are described. The medical devices include a complex three-dimensional braided scaffold with a polymer composition and structure tailored to desired degradation profiles and mechanical properties. The composite three-dimensional braided scaffolds are braided from yarn bundles of biodegradable and bioresorbable polymeric fibers and/or filaments. Monofilament fibers and/or multifilament fibers can be twisted/plied in different combinations to form multifilament yarns, composite multifilament yarns, or composite yarns. The medical devices are useful as both structural prosthetics taking on the function of the tissue as it regenerates and as in vivo scaffolds for cell attachment and ingrowth.

  • Patent number: 9421085
    Abstract: The device (1) comprises a first snare (10) and a second snare (20), each of these snares comprising a contractable hollow elongated body (11, 21) which defines a longitudinal central axis (X10, X20) and which reduces its cross section when two opposed first (12, 22) and second (13, 23) ends thereof are axially moved away from each other. The first end (12) of the first snare (10) and the first end (22) of the second snare (20) are each open and adapted to be fitted and tightened around, respectively, two stumps (T1, T2) of a soft tissue (T) to be repaired. The second end (13) of the first snare (10) and the second end (23) of the second snare (20) are adapted to the axially pulled so that the second end of each of the two snares is passed alongside or through the body (11, 21) of the other snare.
