  • Publication number: 20220117618
    Abstract: A medical device may include a plurality of links reciprocally movable between a loose configuration having a first rigidity and a compact configuration having a second rigidity greater than the first rigidity, wherein application of a force to a distalmost link of the plurality of links when the plurality of links are in the loose configuration causes the plurality of links to change orientation relative to one another, and application of the force to the distalmost link when the plurality of links are in the compact configuration does not cause the plurality of links to change orientation relative to one another.
    Type: Application

  • Publication number: 20220015890
    Abstract: A method for treating an intestine with an expandable scaffolding expanded within the intestine. After placing the expandable scaffolding at a target location, such as across a fistula, the first and second end portions of the expandable scaffolding are radially expanded such that the first and second end portions contact an inner surface of the intestine on opposing sides of the fistula, anchoring the first and second end portions to the intestine. Radially expanding the first and second end portions foreshortens the medial portion along the longitudinal axis such that the first and second end portions are drawn closer together along the longitudinal axis as the medial portion foreshortens to close the fistula.

  • Patent number: 10179190
    Abstract: Methods of treating tissue of a patient, e.g., tissue of an organ such that the bladder, are described. The methods may comprise inserting a medical device within the bladder; and injecting a composition to separate a first layer of tissue from a second layer of tissue. The composition may comprise at least one polysaccharide compound having a concentration ranging from approximately 0.05% to approximately 25% by weight, with respect to the total weight of the composition. The composition may at least partially separate the first layer of tissue from the second layer of tissue. At least one of the first layer of tissue or the second layer of tissue may be a detrusor muscle tissue.
