  • Patent number: 11958799
    Abstract: In a method for producing hydrogen and carboxylic acid, a primary alcohol of 1 to 7 carbon atoms and water are reacted by being continuously introduced into a flow reactor packed with a solid catalyst consisting of an alloy of ruthenium and tin on a support and passed through the reactor under temperature and pressure conditions at which the water assumes a gaseous state. This method enables hydrogen and carboxylic acid to be produced in a high yield or at a high purity from a primary alcohol and water in a short time and by simple operations.

  • Patent number: 11771431
    Abstract: An anastomosis assist tool comprises a body unit extending in a predetermined advancing direction, and an insertion unit arranged at the tip of the body unit. The body unit includes an anastomosis assist part having an approximately constant cross-sectional shape in a plane perpendicular to the advancing direction. The anastomosis assist part includes a projection projecting outwardly as viewed in the cross section and extending in the advancing direction. The insertion unit includes a tapered part of a diameter decreasing gradually toward a tip. When the insertion unit and a part of the body unit are inserted into a vessel, the projection of the anastomosis assist part of the body unit abuts on the inner wall of the vessel. This makes it unlikely that the inner wall of the vessel will stick to the body unit at a site other than a point abutting on the projection.

  • Patent number: 11332313
    Abstract: A conveyor belt monitoring system includes an imaging device which sequentially images a longitudinal predetermined range of a conveyor belt in running from above the conveyor belt. Image data captured by the imaging device is displayed in a monitor, and then is sequentially input into a control unit as detection data. The control unit causes a meander suppressing device to reduce a meander width of the conveyor belt on the basis of the image data.

  • Publication number: 20220000096
    Abstract: There is provided a technique of, when an organ is preserved outside a body while being perfused with a liquid, ensuring the flow rate of the liquid flowing in the organ while suppressing a rise in pressure in the liquid. An organ preservation system includes an organ container, an organ holder, a liquid supply tube, a drainage tube, and an atmospheric pressure regulator. The organ container is capable of having therein an organ preservation space that is a confined space. The organ holder holds the organ in the organ preservation space. The liquid supply tube supplies a liquid to the organ held by the organ holder. The drainage tube discharges a liquid from the organ held by the organ holder. The atmospheric pressure regulator regulates atmospheric pressure in the organ preservation space. By regulating atmospheric pressure in the organ preservation space, it is possible to adjust a pressure in the liquid flowing in the organ.

  • Publication number: 20210381628
    Abstract: A tube is flexible, and includes a tubular outer peripheral surface and a tubular inner peripheral surface. The outer peripheral surface includes corner portions protruding outwardly. The inner peripheral surface includes first arcuate portions positioned inside the corner portions and having a radius of curvature greater than that of the corner portions. In the tube having such a shape, opposed portions of the inner peripheral surface are less prone to be close to each other when an external force is applied to the tube or when the tube is locally bent. This restrains an internal flow passage of the tube from being blocked.

  • Publication number: 20210282390
    Abstract: A perfusion lumen is connected to at least one perfusion blood vessel among a plurality of blood vessels that extends from a branch of a plurality of blood vessels protruding from a liver, the branch existing on a distal side viewed from the liver, to a further distal side viewed from the liver. The perfusion lumen is supplied with perfusate to perfuse the liver and maintain the condition of the liver. Among blood vessels that are not connected to the perfusion lumen, at least one conserved blood vessel is obstructed and conserved for anastomosis to a blood vessel of the living body. Accordingly, the perfusion state of the liver is maintained even during anastomosis to the blood vessels of the living body. This enables anastomosis to the blood vessels of the living body while maintaining the perfusion state of the liver.

  • Publication number: 20210251217
    Abstract: An organ container includes an opening that allows passage of an organ and a pouch-shaped insulating sheet that holds an organ inserted through the opening. The insulating sheet has an inner surface of an uneven shape. This uneven shape suppresses slipping or coming off of the organ from the insulating sheet. Accordingly, it is possible to stably hold the organ in the insulating sheet and to suppress a temperature rise in the organ caused by the body temperature of a recipient or the outside air temperature.

  • Publication number: 20210228307
    Abstract: A monitor is arranged on the opposite side of a surgery table to a main doctor so that an assistant is able to view a surgery area directly without being blocked by the monitor. A camera has a working distance of more than or equal to 60 cm and is therefore above a view field for the main doctor to view the monitor, so that the visibility of the monitor is not hindered. The working distance is not more than 100 cm so that the resolution of the camera is not lowered too much.
