  • Publication number: 20160317338
    Abstract: A sheath used to protect a medical device has one or more strips formed over a portion thereof. The medical device is a scaffold crimped to a balloon and mounted to a catheter. The sheath is two-piece, including a protecting and constraining sheath part. The strips facilitate removal of the constraining sheath from the scaffold in manner that reduces instances of damage caused by improper removal of the sheath from the medical device.

  • Publication number: 20160081824
    Abstract: A polymer scaffold is crimped to a balloon while the polymer material is in a thermodynamically unstable state, or a transient state including crimping shortly after a tube or scaffold processing step that imparts memory to the material, or shortly after rejuvenation of the scaffold.

  • Publication number: 20160081827
    Abstract: Methods are disclosed including thermally processing a scaffold to increase the radial strength of the scaffold when the scaffold is deployed from a crimped state to a deployed state such as a nominal deployment diameter. The thermal processing may further maintain or increase the expansion capability of the scaffold when expanded beyond the nominal diameter.

  • Patent number: 8758399
    Abstract: An apparatus for occluding a venous or arterial puncture site is disclosed including a plug insertable within, or adjacent to, a puncture site in a wall of a body lumen. An insert is forced into an aperture within the plug to cause expansion thereof. The insert may be drawn into the aperture by applying tension to a line passing therethrough and secured to the insert. Barbs may secure to the plug to engage the wall of the body lumen or adjacent tissue tract. Elongate members passing through the wall of the plug may be forced outwardly into the wall of the body lumen or adjacent tissue as the insert is forced into the aperture.

  • Patent number: 8715719
    Abstract: A method of preparing a stable chitosan hemostatic implant including preparing a lyophilizable solution of chitosan polymers and freezing the solution to obtain a frozen chitosan composition. The method further includes placing the frozen chitosan composition under vacuum so as to substantially dry the chitosan composition and curing the dried chitosan composition by first exposing it to a relative humidity and then curing the dried chitosan composition under heat so as to crosslink the chitosan polymers.

  • Publication number: 20110311608
    Abstract: Implantable hemostatic products with improved stability are prepared from crosslinked chitosan hemostatic compositions. The crosslinked chitosan hemostatic compositions have improved stability and can be prepared into a variety of implantable medical devices in various shapes and sizes so as to be usable for inhibiting blood flow and ooze from substantially any type of internal bleeding site. For example, the chitosan compositions can be prepared into hemostatic gauze pads, bandages, dressings, wound plugs, incision plugs, arteriotomy plugs, tissue fillers, sealers, sheets, rolls, combinations thereof, and the like.
