  • Patent number: 11026745
    Abstract: An open-irrigated ablation catheter system includes a catheter body, and an electrode tip body mounted on a distal portion of the catheter body. The electrode tip body includes a proximal end configured for connection to the catheter body and a wall defining an open interior region and including one or more irrigation ports. The wall is conductive for delivering radio frequency (RF) energy. The catheter system further includes a proximal insert positioned partially within the catheter body and at least partially within the proximal end of the electrode tip body. The proximal insert includes a fluid inlet for receiving a cooling fluid delivered via the catheter body. The proximal insert forms a flow path configured to direct the cooling fluid from the fluid inlet to cool the distal portion of the catheter body and to cool a junction of the catheter body and the electrode tip body.

  • Patent number: 8965512
    Abstract: System and methods for adhering a patch of stimulation electrode(s) to blood vessels to stimulate a target site on the blood vessel are described. In various embodiments, the system includes an adhesion patch and at least one electrode. The adhesion patch includes a passive adhesion mechanism that may produce an adhesive force sufficiently strong to adhere the adhesion patch to the exterior of the blood vessel and to operationally position the at least one electrode for use in electrically stimulating a target site of the blood vessel. The adhesion patch may also include a release mechanism that is configured for a user to disengage the patch from the exterior of the blood vessel without significant trauma to the blood vessel. After being released, the adhesion patch may be re-adhered to a different target site of the blood vessel and stimulate the different target site.
