  • Publication number: 20220183708
    Abstract: The present invention provides a catheter for treating occlusions in blood vessels. An exemplary catheter for treating occlusions in blood vessels comprises a tubular inner member including a base segment with a first lumen defining a fluid inlet port, and a second lumen defining a fluid outlet port. An extension segment is distal to the base segment. The extension segment has a reduced cross-section. An emitter assembly includes a first insulated wire extending through the second lumen and a second insulated wire, and a conductive sheath wrapped circumferentially around the first insulated wire, the second insulated wire, and the extension segment. A cap or balloon is sealably attached to the distal end of the catheter and surrounds the emitter assembly, said cap or balloon being fillable with conductive fluid.

  • Publication number: 20210085383
    Abstract: The present invention provides a system and method for treating tight, hard-to-cross calcified lesions in which an angioplasty balloon is used to dilate the lesions and provide shock waves to restore normal blood flow in a patient's artery. An exemplary device includes an elongated tube and a balloon wrapped circumferentially around the tube and sealed to a distal end of the tube. During treatment, the device is advanced into a patient's vasculature and the balloon is inflated with conductive fluid such that the balloon is fixed to walls of the vasculature proximal to the calcified lesion. The balloon includes at least one low-profile emitter positioned near the distal end of the balloon, which may be activated to generate shock waves to break loose calcifications in the lesion. After calcium in the tight lesion has been modified, the balloon can be deflated and advanced further into the lesion to continue treatment.

  • Publication number: 20210085347
    Abstract: The present invention provides a catheter for treating occlusions in blood vessels. The catheter includes at least one electrode pair positioned inside of a flexible angioplasty balloon at the distal end of the catheter. In some designs, the electrode pairs are arranged in a low-profile or coplanar configuration, reducing the diameter of the distal end of the device and permitting treatment of tight and hard-to-cross occlusions. The flexible angioplasty balloon has an extremely low profile and does need to be folded before insertion of the catheter into the cardiovascular system. During treatment, the balloon can be expanded a relatively small amount sufficient to immerse the electrode pairs in a conductive fluid before generating shock waves across the electrodes to treat the occlusion. The balloon can be made of material having elastomeric properties such that it returns to its original low profile configuration when it is deflated following treatment.

  • Patent number: 10552522
    Abstract: Automatically generating a glossary of terms for a given document or group of documents is provided. A single document or a group of documents associated with a given project or event are parsed for one or more unique terms (e.g., words, acronyms, phrases, etc.). Identified terms are passed to a local or external definition source, and definitions for the one or more identified terms are retrieved. Retrieved definitions are presented to a user of the documents, and approved definitions are stored in a project store for subsequent use in association with the documents.

  • Patent number: 10545958
    Abstract: In various embodiments, methods and systems for language scaling a natural language processing system (NLPS) are provided. A database schema of a database is accessed. The database schema includes entities that are defined in a query natural language different from an NLPS natural language upon which NLPS components are built. The entities are communicated to a machine translation service and top translations. A translated database schema model is generated based on the entities and translations. When a query associated with the query natural language and the database schema is received, a query translation is generated. The query translation comprises selectively translated portions of the query based on a selective translation mechanism that includes accessing the machine translation service to translate selected portions of the query. The selected portions are selected based on the translated database schema. The query translation is executed on the NLPS components to identify query results.

  • Publication number: 20200008868
    Abstract: Systems and methods for delivering energy to passageways in a patient, such as airways in the lung of a patient for treating asthma. One embodiment of a method for delivering energy to a passageway comprises positioning an access device in a lung airway of a patient and advancing an elongated body of a treatment device along the access device until an energy delivery unit at a distal portion of the elongated body projects from the access device. The method can further include expanding the energy delivery unit such that energy delivery elements contact a sidewall of the airway and activating an energy supply coupled to the treatment device such that energy is delivered to the sidewall of the airway. A single person physically operates both the access device and the treatment device while expanding the energy delivery unit and activating the energy supply.

  • Patent number: 9555165
    Abstract: Tubing made of two or more polymers circumferentially arranged around the perimeter of the tubing in a single layer may be useful as medical tubing. Specifically, such tubing may be useful in catheters, sheaths, sheath introducers, implant delivery systems, and other medical devices having elongated tubular components. Selection of the two or more polymers based on the durometer and melting temperature permits optimization of axial strength and flexibility for particular applications. Such tubing may be extruded as a single layer tubing or a multi-layer tubing where the additional layers may be single material layers or more multi-polymer layers.
