  • Publication number: 20200391016
    Abstract: Methods and techniques are disclosed for performing transcatheter procedures on a patient that result in similar blood flow changes to the surgical Blalock-Taussig procedure, the Glenn procedure, and the Fontan procedure. Since these transcatheter procedures do not necessarily involve open chest surgery, they tend to be less traumatic for the patient, quicker and easier to perform, and may result in better patient outcomes.

  • Publication number: 20200254228
    Abstract: A shunt is described that expands to an hourglass shape. As the shunt expands, both of its ends radially flare outwards relative to its middle section and the length of the shunt foreshortens, which causes the flared ends to engage the tissue surrounding a puncture or aperture within a patient's tissue.

  • Publication number: 20200187945
    Abstract: Methods and devices for increasing oxygenation levels in the blood supply and thereby treating the condition of hypoxemia. Multiple approaches such as pressure reduction in the pulmonary circulatory system, reducing triggering mechanisms in the main pulmonary artery and restricting flow in the pulmonary circulatory system are disclosed. Interventions associated with those approaches can including shunting, restrictors, compliance devices, pharmacologic substances, etc.

  • Publication number: 20200085600
    Abstract: Devices and methods of treating conditions cause or exacerbated by excessive fluid pressures or retentions, such as pulmonary hypertension, that involves shunting excessive fluid pressure from one bodily chamber or vessel to another bodily chamber or vessel.

  • Publication number: 20200054867
    Abstract: Devices and methods of treating fluid retention caused by congestive heart failure or other conditions resulting in edema, lymphoedema, or significant fluid retention (e.g., deep vein thrombosis, cellulitis, venous stasis insufficiency, or damage to the lymphatic network) are described. Specifically, a treatment device is used to create a passage or cannula between the lymphatic system (or other area of the body) and an external drainage device. This device can be only temporarily located in the patient or can be implanted within the patient for longer periods of time. The physician can safely and reliably remove excess fluid from the body via the device and optionally inject other treatment agents.

  • Publication number: 20150342736
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are embodiments of a prosthesis and delivery device, as well as methods of use. The delivery device can be composed of an inner retention assembly configured to carry an expandable prosthesis to an in situ target location. The inner retention assembly can slide within an outer elongate hollow member which can cover the expandable prosthesis. The outer elongate hollow member can further be longitudinally collapsed into a receiving member located at the distal end of the outer elongate hollow member.

  • Publication number: 20150328000
    Abstract: A prosthesis can be configured to grasp intralumenal tissue when deployed within a body cavity and prevent axial flow of fluid around an exterior of the prosthesis. The prosthesis can include an expandable frame configured to radially expand and contract for deployment within the body cavity, and an annular flap positioned around an exterior of the expandable frame. In some embodiments, the annular flap can extend outward from the frame and have a collapsed configuration and an expanded configuration.

  • Publication number: 20150238315
    Abstract: Devices, systems and methods are described herein a prosthesis for implantation within a lumen or body cavity and delivery devices for delivering the prosthesis to a location for implantation. A delivery system can include a plurality of components which are moveable relative to each other. The delivery system can include a nose cone which can cover at least a first end of the prosthesis, an outer elongate member which can cover at least a second end of the prosthesis, and a tether which can at least partially restrain the prosthesis from deployment.

  • Publication number: 20150032153
    Abstract: Devices, systems and methods are described herein for sealing openings in an anatomical wall. A sealing system includes an elongate tubular support for delivery to an anatomical opening to be sealed, a cover of bio-compatible material covering a distal portion of the tubular support, and an anchor assembly, the anchor assembly being designed to secure the cover material to the opening. The anchor assembly can include a plurality of distal anchors and a plurality of proximal anchors, a button, ring or donut, and/or a C-clip. In some embodiments, the system further comprises a closure member for closing off an end of the cover material after removal of the tubular support.
