  • Publication number: 20200306434
    Abstract: A blood pump includes an impeller; a drive shaft coupled to the impeller and configured to rotate with the impeller; and a rotor coupled to the drive shaft and configured to rotate with the drive shaft. The rotor includes a driven magnet having an outer surface. A corrosion-resistant coating may be disposed on the outer surface of the driven magnet. A stator is disposed adjacent the rotor and configured to drive the rotor, causing the rotor to rotate; and a motor is configured to drive the stator. A protection assembly may be disposed adjacent the stator and configured to receive an end of the drive shaft, and may include a protection assembly housing enclosing a protective fluid chamber, the protective fluid chamber including the driven magnet and at least a portion of a bearing configured to engage the end of the drive shaft.

  • Publication number: 20200187975
    Abstract: Polypectomy devices and methods for making and using polypectomy devices are disclosed. An example polypectomy device may include an elongate sheath having a proximal end region and a distal end region. A shaft may be slidably disposed within the sheath. A handle may be coupled to the proximal end region of the sheath. The handle may be designed to axially shift the shaft relative to the sheath. A snare may be coupled to the shaft. The snare may include a first region, a traction region, and a distal tip region. The first region may have a non-circular cross-sectional shape. The traction region may include a plurality of traction members. At a position between two adjacent traction members the snare may have a reduced cross-sectional area relative to the first region. The distal tip region may have a circular cross-sectional shape.
