  • Patent number: 10810250
    Abstract: The content items presented to a user account as part of a media station can be recorded in a content history index, which can be requested and presented to the user account. The content history can enable a user to revisit the content items included in the content history and/or provide feedback regarding the content items. The version of the content item returned to the user can be based on the client device used to request the content item. For example, a user that was presented a content item on their mobile device, can later request to revisit the content item on their PC and receive a version of the content item best suited for presentation by the PC, rather than the version presented on the mobile device.

  • Publication number: 20200289102
    Abstract: Devices, systems, and methods for treating damaged or diseased valves are disclosed. A representative embodiment includes an elongated shaft having a longitudinal axis, a proximal portion, and a distal portion, and a dissection arm at the distal portion. The dissection arm can have a longitudinal axis and be moveable between a low-profile state and a deployed state. In the deployed state, a portion of the arm can flex outwardly away from the longitudinal axis of the shaft. The arm is configured to be deployed within a space within a vessel wall such that, as the arm moves from the low-profile state to the deployed state, the arm pushes against vessel wall tissue at a periphery of the space, thereby separating tissue at the periphery to form a dissection pocket having a predetermined shape.

  • Patent number: 10708408
    Abstract: Systems, methods and non-transitory computer readable media for allowing a user to switch between wearable items that have been paired or associated with an electronic device, such as a smartphone, are described. In one embodiment, the wearable items automatically detect a removal of a first wearable item from a user's body and an attachment of a second wearable item to the user's body. Messages from the wearable items are transmitted to the electronic device to allow the electronic device to switch the active wearable item from the first wearable item to the second wearable item. The switch can occur while the electronic device is in a locked state, and the electronic device can synchronize the second wearable item with data received from the first wearable item. Other embodiments are also described.

  • Publication number: 20190282259
    Abstract: A device and method for intravascular dissection of a body lumen, and particularly a blood vessel wall, is disclosed herein. One aspect of the present technology, for example, is directed toward a tubular elongated member having a lumen therethrough, wherein the elongated member includes a distal region configured to be positioned within a blood vessel wall. The distal region can include an angled distal face having a distal-most edge configured to puncture the vessel wall and a proximal-most edge. The member can include an exit port fluidly coupled to the lumen, and positioned along the distal face between the distal-most edge and the proximal-most edge. A central longitudinal axis of the exit port can be offset from a central longitudinal axis of the elongated member such that the exit port is closer to the distal-most edge than the proximal-most edge.
