Daniel C. Weber has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20210361916
    Abstract: The invention provides design, material, manufacturing method, and use alternatives for medical devices. An example medical device includes an elongate shaft having a distal region and a coil disposed along the distal region. The coil is formed from a winding member having a first filar region and a second filar region. The winding member has a first cross-sectional diameter along the first filar region, a second cross-sectional diameter different from the first cross-sectional diameter along the second filar region, a first centroid at a first position along the first filar region and a second centroid at a second position along the second filar region. The first centroid and the second centroid are axially-aligned.

  • Patent number: 10258470
    Abstract: A delivery device for a stented heart valve comprises a handle, an inner catheter shaft extending from the handle and having an enlarged bumper element at a distal end, an outer catheter shaft extending from the handle and slidably coupled around the inner catheter shaft, and a retraction mechanism for controlling longitudinal movement of the outer catheter shaft relative to the inner catheter shaft. The outer catheter shaft includes a generally cylindrical housing at a distal end that is structured to receive the bumper element therein.

  • Publication number: 20130304108
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to a system for treating a blood vessel including a blood vessel lumen defined by a blood vessel wall, the blood vessel lumen being at least partially obstructed. The system may include a shaft assembly including an orienting element. The system may also include a re-entry device extending into the central lumen. The re-entry device may comprise a core wire configured such that bending stresses created in the core wire during bending about a design bend radius are less than the elastic limit of the core wire so that the core wire will elastically recover from the bending upon release.
