  • Publication number: 20200214727
    Abstract: A percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) needle may include a cannula including a shaft and a cannula hub coupled to a proximal end of the cannula shaft. A depth guide may be disposed on an outer surface of the cannula shaft. A stylet may be disposable within the cannula lumen and may include a tapered point at a distal end of the stylet and a stylet hub coupled to a proximal end of the stylet that is configured to be releasably securable to the cannula hub. An adjustable depth stop may be releasably securable to the cannula shaft at a desired position relative to the depth guide, the adjustable depth guide capable of being manipulated between an adjustment configuration in which the adjustable depth guide is moveable relative to the cannula shaft and a secured configuration in which the adjustable depth guide is secured relative to the cannula shaft.

  • Publication number: 20170196590
    Abstract: Devices for guiding an instrument into a body of a patient, at a targeted point of entry and along an insertion path at a targeted insertion angle, are described herein, such as a guide for an access needle in a PCNL procedure for accessing the kidney to remove kidney stones, the devices comprising a base component, a guide assembly, and optionally an insertion mechanism. The base component is aligned in use with the point of entry and the guide assembly cooperates with the base component to allow for the instrument to be aligned and fixed at any circumferential angle around an axis perpendicular to the point of entry and at any vertical angle ranging from 0 to 45 degrees away from the axis in a direction toward the body. The optional mechanism allows for mechanical insertion once the instrument is aligned and fixed.

  • Publication number: 20170189059
    Abstract: Medical devices and methods for using medical devices are disclosed. An access device for accessing a target site comprises a tubular member having a proximal portion and a distal portion. The access device may also include a balloon coupled to the tubular member, the balloon extending between the tubular member proximal portion and the tubular member distal portion. The access device may also include a stylet moveable with respect to the tubular member, wherein the stylet is configured to pierce through the skin of a patient.

  • Publication number: 20170193160
    Abstract: Computer systems and computer-implemented analysis methods may be used for assistance in planning and/or performing a medical procedure, such as percutaneous nephrolithotomy or percutaneous nephrolithotripsy. The method may include receiving one or more radiographic images of an anatomical structure of a patient, generating a display of the radiographic image(s), generating at least one request for user input to identify features of the anatomical structure, receiving user input identifying the features of the anatomical structure, identifying at least one access plan based on the received user input, and generating a display of the identified access plan(s) associated with the radiographic image(s). The method may include generating a patient template that indicates an insertion site according to the identified access plan(s).

  • Patent number: 4903364
    Abstract: Cleaning underlying surfaces, especially irregular surfaces, such as shake roofs, grooved pavements or ramps, and the like. Mobile apparatus under the guidance of an operator brushes the underlying surface and sprays water or other cleaning liquid onto it in a rotating pattern as the operator traverses the apparatus and, thus, the cleaning locus relative to the supporting surface. A "compass point" wheel arrangement enables the apparatus to be positioned with one wheel off the edge of the supporting surface to clean over the edge while maintaining three-point stability, whereas temporary removal of a wheel enables close approach to clean an intersection of the underlying supporting surface and an adjoining wall or other adjacent upright surface.
