  • Patent number: 10470647
    Abstract: A surgical sheath for use in endoscopic trans-nasal or intra-ocular surgery has an angle section joined to a conical section, with the conical section having a central axis not parallel to a central axis of the angle section. A body section is joined to the angle section, with the body section having a length at least twice the length of the angle section. The conical section, the angle section and the body section may be a flexible or compliant material. The sheath reduces collateral trauma to the tissues in the surgical pathway.

  • Publication number: 20190274525
    Abstract: A surgical sheath for use in endoscopic trans-nasal or intra-ocular surgery is made of a braid material. The sheath may be manufactured by placing a length of braided tube material over a mandrel. The braid material is conformed to the shape of the mandrel and is then heat set. An atraumatic end may be made by folding or rolling one or both ends of the sheath. A coating may also optionally be applied to the braid material. The sheath reduces collateral trauma to the tissues in the surgical pathway.

  • Patent number: 10397162
    Abstract: A social networking system notifies its users of different events and actions taking place inside the social networking system. To present notifications that are most likely to be of interest to the user, the social networking system observes the interactions of the user with notifications presented to the user and suggests an option to opt-out of notifications associated with a source based on the observed interactions. The option to opt-out of notifications associated with the source may be presented if the users interactions with the notifications presented are below a threshold. Notifications associated with a social group are presented to the user based on factors describing the group and the relation between the user and other users of the social group, for example, seniority of the user, size of the group, and the rate at which user actions associated with the group are received.

  • Patent number: 10394807
    Abstract: A database system rewrites database queries based on rewrite constraints specification. The rewrite constraints specification provides directives to the database system to generate temporary tables for storing intermediate results of database queries and rewrite the corresponding database queries in terms of the temporary tables. The subqueries for matching the rewrite constraints specification may be specified in various ways. For example, the rewrite constraints specification may identify the subqueries by using one or more aliases. The rewrite constraints specification may specify a list of tables such that all database queries that join the database tables specified in the rewrite constraints specification are determined to match. The optimizer is able to optimize the rewritten database queries better by getting a better estimate for the statistics describing the temporary tables.

  • Patent number: 10289872
    Abstract: This application discloses an electronic system including active circuitry configured to be selectively enabled for authorized number of times. The electronic system also includes security circuitry to detect an enablement event associated with the electronic system. The enablement event can correspond to reception of a reset signal associated with the electronic system, a lapse of a predetermined time period, or the like. In response to the detection of the enablement event, the security circuitry can determine a number of times the security circuitry has previously enabled the active circuitry. The security circuitry can generate the enablement signals capable of enabling the active circuitry when the determined number of times the security circuitry has previously enabled the active circuitry is fewer than the authorized number of times.

  • Publication number: 20190114554
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer readable storage media are disclosed for generating joint-probabilistic ensemble forecasts for future events based on a plurality of different prediction models for the future events. For example, in one or more embodiments the disclosed system determines error values for various predictions from a plurality of different prediction models (i.e., “forecasters”) for previous events. Moreover, in one or more embodiments the system generates an error probability density function by mapping the error values to an error space and applying a kernel density estimation. Furthermore, the system can apply the error probability density function(s) to a plurality of predictions from the forecasters for a future event to generate a likelihood function and a new prediction for the future event.

  • Patent number: 10134945
    Abstract: A method for wafer to wafer bonding for III-V and CMOS wafers is provided. A silicon carrier wafer is provided having an epitaxial III-V semiconductor region and an oxide region disposed over the wafer top surface, the regions having substantially equal heights. A sidewall of the epitaxial III-V semiconductor region directly contacts a sidewall of the oxide region. A eutectic bonding layer is formed over a top surface of the epitaxial III-V semiconductor region and the oxide region for bonding to the CMOS wafer which contains semiconductor devices. The silicon carrier wafer is removed, and the CMOS wafer is singulated to form a plurality of three-dimensional integrated circuits, each including a CMOS substrate corresponding to a portion of the CMOS wafer and a III-V optical device corresponding to a portion of the III-V epitaxial semiconductor region.

  • Publication number: 20180256146
    Abstract: A surgical access sleeve may include a tubular braid with a closed end pocket at the distal end. The tubular braid is compressible, or it can be shortened, in a longitudinal direction, to force the tubular braid to expand radially outward. A surgical method includes inserting a substantially un-compressed access sleeve partially into an incision or opening in a patient, with the access sleeve comprising a tubular braid. The access sleeve is compressed in a longitudinal direction to force the access sleeve to expand radially outward to dilate or maintain the opening.

  • Publication number: 20180085182
    Abstract: A surgical sheath system for performing surgery of the head includes a flexible tubular braided sheath which is radially expandable. An expansion tube is insertable into the sheath to radially expand the sheath. A locking assembly includes tube position shift means, such as a cap threaded onto a flange, with a washer contained in a recess in the flange, the recess having an inside diameter greater than an outside diameter of the washer. When unlocked, the expansion tube can be shift horizontally, to access a different area of a surgical site, without moving the locking assembly. A stylet stabilizing assembly may be pivotally or releasably attached to the locking assembly.
