  • Publication number: 20210212845
    Abstract: Devices, systems, and methods for marking and/or reinforcing fenestrations in grafts are disclosed herein. In some embodiments, a radiopaque marker for a graft is provided. The marker can be secured to the graft in the area near a fenestration such that the marker is visible via radiographic imaging. The radiopaque marker can be in the form of a radiopaque thread, a radiopaque bead, a radiopaque additive, or a radiopaque adhesive. In some embodiments, the radiopaque marker is in the form of a circular disc shaped and sized to surround a fenestration, the circular disc being formed of a radiopaque material. The radiopaque marker can be configured to or can be attached to a reinforcement member configured to reinforce a fenestration such that one or more edges of the fenestration are protected and/or to aid in engagement with and sealing to a mating stent.

  • Patent number: 11058876
    Abstract: The present specification discloses devices and methodologies for the treatment of transient lower esophageal sphincter relaxations (tLESRs). Individuals with tLESRs may be treated by implanting a stimulation device within the patient's lower esophageal sphincter and applying electrical stimulation to the patient's lower esophageal sphincter, in accordance with certain predefined protocols. The presently disclosed devices have a simplified design because they do not require sensing systems capable of sensing when a person is engaged in a wet swallow and have improved energy storage requirements.

  • Publication number: 20190366084
    Abstract: The present specification discloses devices and methodologies for the treatment of GERD. Individuals with GERD may be treated by implanting a stimulation device within the patient's lower esophageal sphincter and applying electrical stimulation to the patient's lower esophageal sphincter, in accordance with certain predefined protocols. The presently disclosed devices have a simplified design because they do not require sensing systems capable of sensing when a person is engaged in a wet swallow, have improved energy storage requirements, enable improved LES function while concurrently delivering additional health benefits, and enable improved LES function post stimulation termination.

  • Patent number: 9950084
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a fluid reservoir, a sterilization member, and a transfer adapter. The sterilization member operably couples to the fluid reservoir. The sterilization member is configured to be transitioned between a first configuration, in which the sterilization member obstructs an inlet surface of the fluid reservoir and maintains the inlet surface in a substantially sterile environment, and a second configuration, in which the inlet surface is unobstructed. The transfer adapter is configured to be placed in fluid communication with a portion of a patient. The transfer adapter is configured to move relative to the sterilization member from a first position to a second position such that a surface of the transfer adapter contacts the sterilization member to transition the sterilization member to the second configuration. The fluid reservoir is placed in fluid communication with the transfer adapter when the transfer adapter is in the second position.
