  • Publication number: 20240108451
    Abstract: The present invention includes an embolic protection device comprising a catheter having a self-expanding embolic filter that is disposed around the catheter proximal to a distal portion, wherein the embolic filter comprises a frame, and the frame defines an opening of the embolic filter that faces the distal end of the catheter; a deployment mechanism that is disposed around at least a portion of the catheter, wherein the deployment mechanism is longitudinally movable with respect to the catheter, the deployment mechanism is configured to contain the embolic filter in a collapsed configuration, and the embolic filter is configured to self-expand upon the longitudinal retraction of the deployment mechanism; and a wire coupled to the frame for expanding the size or diameter of the embolic filter opening.

  • Publication number: 20220054138
    Abstract: Devices and methods are provided for trans-esophageal aortic flow control. The device comprises a controller, an esophageal tube extending from the controller, an anchor device at a distal end of the esophageal tube and configured to anchor the distal end of the device inside a patient's stomach, and an actuator positioned proximally to the anchoring device by a sufficient distance so that the actuator will be proximal to the intersection of the patient's esophagus with their diaphragm when the anchoring device is positioned inside of the patient's stomach. In this position, the anchoring device is aligned with the location at which the patient's esophagus and aorta cross that is above (or proximal to) the intersection with the patient's diaphragm, with the patient's aorta then positioned between the spine and the esophagus.

  • Patent number: 10441290
    Abstract: An implant may include a frame and a cover to facilitate endoluminal vessel occlusion, selective release of embolic material toward a target region, and/or endoluminal stenting. The frame of the implant provides radial expansion properties to secure the cover within a body vessel. The cover and/or the frame can occlude flow of a fluid through the body vessel.

  • Patent number: 10004513
    Abstract: An occlusion system can include an expandable implant that can be delivered to a bodily lumen. The implant can be carried on an engagement section of a catheter used in the system. The implant can be assembled onto the catheter by coupling a cover member of the implant with a support member of the implant. When assembled, the system can be advantageously configured to have a low delivery profile to facilitate delivery through catheters having a size of less than 7 Fr, and in some cases, less than 6 Fr.

  • Patent number: 9737307
    Abstract: An occlusion device delivery system can deliver an implant using a catheter. A distal section of the catheter has proximal and distal apertures extending through a wall of the catheter. The implant can be wound about the distal section and secured to the catheter via an engagement mechanism. The implant has a proximal segment that curves inwardly across the proximal aperture and a distal segment that curves inwardly across the distal aperture. The engagement mechanism engages the proximal and distal segments within their respective apertures to secure the implant to the catheter.
