  • Patent number: 8221735
    Abstract: Embolic compositions comprising macromers having a backbone comprising a polymeric backbone comprising units with a 1,2-diol or 1,3-diol structure, such as polyvinyl alcohol, and pendant chains bearing crosslinkable groups and, optionally, other modifiers. When crosslinked, the macromers form hydrogels having many properties advantageous for use as embolic agents to block and fill lumens and spaces. The embolic compositions can be used as liquid embolic agents and crosslinked in situ or as preformed embolic articles, such as microspheres.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: April 23, 2009
    Date of Patent: July 17, 2012
    Assignee: BioCure, Inc.

  • Publication number: 20090012465
    Abstract: A microcatheter having a distal end with a tip relief region comprising at least one spiral cut, preferably a full thickness cut, and preferably having decreasing pitch towards the distal tip. The microcatheter is preferably made of medical grade superelastic nitinol. The microcatheter can be used alone or as one catheter in a dual lumen microcatheter assembly.

  • Publication number: 20050129656
    Abstract: Compositions comprising macromers having a backbone comprising units having a 1,2-diol and/or 1,3-diol structure for tissue bulking and coating. Such polymers include poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) and hydrolyzed copolymers of vinyl acetate, for example, copolymers with vinyl chloride, N-vinylpyrrolidone, etc. The backbone polymer contains pendant chains bearing crosslinkable groups and, optionally, other modifiers. When crosslinked, the macromers form hydrogels having many properties advantageous for use as agents to hulk and coat tissues.
