  • Publication number: 20190298972
    Abstract: An anchor device to simplify catheterization procedures, particularly for insertion and maneuvering of large catheters in tortuous arteries, vessels, or other lumen is disclosed. In some embodiments, the anchor device includes an anchor stent formed from a plurality of zig-zag shaped wire elements that are coupled together. The device further includes a plurality of connector struts attached at a proximal end of the anchor stent, the connector struts coalescing to form a strut tip. A guide device, such as a guidewire, is attached to the anchor stent at the strut tip and may be used to guide the anchor stent into the arteries or other vessels and toward a target treatment site.

  • Publication number: 20190046342
    Abstract: A flow diversion device for the treatment of intracranial aneurysms and other medical conditions is disclosed. The flow diversion device may include a generally tubular wire stent frame formed from a plurality of zig-zag shaped wire elements that are coupled together. The device further includes a base layer of graft material coupled to the wire stent frame and surrounding at least a portion thereof, the wire stent frame maintaining the base layer in an open condition. In some embodiments, the base layer may be formed of porous graft material having a plurality of pores formed thereon to provide a passageway for a small blood flow to maintain the long term patency of important small side branches, while also reducing blood flow to the aneurysm to promote occlusion and avoid potential rupture.

  • Publication number: 20190021635
    Abstract: A stroke detection device (50, 100), and associated methods of operation, for early detection of ischemic stroke. The device (50, 100) includes a fiberoptic port (20, 102) connected to an end of a fiberoptic catheter (22, 120), the catheter (22, 120) including a first optical fiber (26, 122) and a second optical fiber (28, 124) each extending along at least a portion of the catheter (22, 120). The catheter (22, 120) is configured to direct infrared light along the first optical fiber to illuminate a subcutaneous region of the patient, and to further obtain reflected light data via the second optical fiber based on the infrared light reflected from cells present in the subcutaneous region. Based on the reflected light data, the stroke detection device (50, 100) monitors SjVO2 levels for early detection of ischemic strokes.

  • Publication number: 20110295104
    Abstract: A detection and guide system provides access to desired blood vessel locations. An implant formed of a biocompatible material is implanted within a mammalian body proximate an outer surface of a blood vessel. The detection and guide system may be configured to be positioned outside the mammalian body to detect the implant and to guide a needle to the desired entry site of the biological boundary structure. A needle guide may be coupled to a housing of the detection and guide system and directed at an angle such that positioning the implant detector over the implant aligns an opening through the needle guide with the desired entry site. The detection and guide system may, for example, provide metal detection of a metallic implant or magnetic detection of a magnetic implant.
