  • Publication number: 20240108356
    Abstract: An applicator of a clip system includes an elongated member and a bushing coupled to a distal end of the elongated member and a coupling movably attached to the bushing. A capsule is coupled to the coupling via a coupling member hooked over a hook of the coupling. Proximal ends of clip arms are received within the capsule and a core member received between and connected to the proximal ends of the arms includes a projection and a failure point distal of the projection. The core member is coupled to a control member so that movement of the control member relative to the elongated member opens and closes the arms. The projection is configured so that, when the clip is clipped over tissue, the coupling is drawn into the body and the projection drives the coupling member radially outward off the hook to free the capsule.

  • Publication number: 20240091508
    Abstract: A guidewire assembly may include a handle assembly including: a handle body; a shaft extending through the handle body; and an actuator. The guidewire assembly may further include a tube extending distally from the handle assembly and including a proximal portion and a distal portion; and an interior body extending from the handle assembly through the tube to the distal portion of the tube, wherein the interior body is coupled to the shaft. The shaft may be configured to move longitudinally through the handle body as the actuator is rotated to move interior body longitudinally through the tube.

  • Publication number: 20240081623
    Abstract: An accessory device for an endoscope includes a cap attached to a shaft of the endoscope, the cap extending along a first axis, a first tip coupled to the cap and movable relative to the cap between a deployed configuration and a non-deployed configuration, and a first shaft defining a lumen and extending proximally from the first tip. In the deployed configuration, the first tip extends along a second axis that is offset from the first axis, and in the non-deployed configuration, the first tip extends along a third axis that is offset from the first axis.

  • Publication number: 20230371969
    Abstract: A tissue traction device having a segment defined along a limited extent about the perimeter of the tissue traction device and more flexible than surrounding regions of the tissue traction device. The tissue traction device is actuatable to bend along the more flexible segment thereof, generally in a direction of a side of the tissue traction device opposite the more flexible segment thereof. The tissue traction device may be formed from one or more flexible tubular elements, with the flexible segment along a limited extent about the perimeter of the one or more tubular elements. A tissue traction system may be configured to provide actuation medium, such as an inflation medium, to the tissue traction device to control movement of the tissue traction device. The tissue traction system may include one or more flexible tubular elements, a distal end of which forms the tissue traction device.

  • Publication number: 20230248370
    Abstract: A clipping system includes a clip, a core member and a control member. The clip includes a capsule extending longitudinally from a proximal end to a distal end and including a channel extending therethrough, and clip arms. Proximal ends of the arms are slidably received within the channel to move the arms between open and closed configurations. The core member is received between and connected to the proximal ends of the arms to couple the arms to one another. The core member includes a locking feature movable between unlocked and locked configurations. The control member extends through a proximal portion of the system from a proximal end to an enlarged distal end housed within a proximal portion of the core member so that a longitudinal movement of the control member relative to the capsule moves the clip between the open and closed configurations.

  • Publication number: 20230248346
    Abstract: A tissue traction device having a target-tissue-engaging segment and more than one traction-tissue-engaging segment spaced apart from the target-tissue-engaging segment. The tissue traction device may have a peripheral section with at least one traction-tissue-engagement section therein, with at least one of the traction-tissue-engaging segments defined on such traction-tissue-engagement section. An additional traction-tissue-engagement segment may be defined within the peripheral section, optionally on an additional traction-tissue-engagement section, and/or within the at least one traction-tissue-engagement section. One or more traction-tissue-engagement segments within the peripheral section may be simultaneously and/or sequentially engaged with traction tissue to achieve varying force vectors of traction on the target tissue.

  • Publication number: 20230248345
    Abstract: A tissue traction device having more than one grasping segment by which the tissue traction device may be engaged with tissue directly, or indirectly, such as with the use of a tissue-engagement member. The tissue traction device may have a peripheral section defining grasping segments, as well as interior grasping segments defined within the perimeter of the peripheral section. Traction may be applied to a target tissue by engaging a target-tissue-engaging segment with target tissue, and engaging a traction-tissue-engaging segment with traction tissue spaced apart from the target tissue. Engagement of additional target-tissue-engaging segments with traction tissue (optionally at different locations) allows the force vector of the traction to be adjusted. A delivery system may include tissue traction device holder to maintain a desired configuration of the tissue traction device during delivery thereof to a target tissue area.
