  • Patent number: 9248216
    Abstract: The present invention is generally directed to medical devices, and more specifically to medical devices that are at least partially insertable or implantable into the body of a patient. The medical devices generally comprise (a) a therapeutic agent, more typically, a high-molecular-weight therapeutic agent, and (b) at least one polymeric layer, which typically acts to control the release of the therapeutic agent from the medical device. Also disclosed herein are methods of making such medical devices.

  • Publication number: 20150073388
    Abstract: The present invention provides systems and methods for the targeted delivery of a therapeutic agent using expandable devices that are temporarily or permanently placed within the body. Such therapeutic agents may be delivered as a coating on the outer surface of the expandable device. Once positioned at a desired location within the body, the device is expanded such that its drug-coated outer surface establishes direct contact with a target tissue. The expanded device remains in contact with the target tissue for a pre-determined amount of time prior to being withdrawn from the body. Delivery of the therapeutic agent using the expandable device may be followed, or preceded, by delivery of a second expandable device to the same location within the body.

  • Patent number: 8808364
    Abstract: The present invention relates to implantable medical devices and methods that employ these medical devices to treat heart valves. In one embodiment, a medical device is provided comprising a body. The body may have a portion thereof including therapeutic agent and can be configured to support the device proximate a heart valve. Methods in accordance with embodiments of the present invention may also include providing a medical device having a body with at least a portion thereof including a therapeutic agent. These methods may also include positioning the medical device in a location proximate to a downstream surface of the heart valve and securing the device. The therapeutic agent released may then be delivered to the heart valve.

  • Patent number: 8808272
    Abstract: A modified medical device for delivery of a pharmaceutically active material is described. The present inventors have found that many conventional medical devices contain a metallic or polymeric component that comes into contact with a pharmaceutically active material during use, and that the contact substantially reduce the pharmaceutical effectiveness of the pharmaceutically active material. The invention described herein concerns various modifications to the metallic or polymeric component that are effective to diminish such a substantial reduction in pharmaceutical effectiveness.

  • Publication number: 20140199364
    Abstract: Implants and methods for the delivery of a therapeutic agent to a target location within a patient's body are disclosed. The implants include a fiber comprising a polymeric material and having a diameter of up to about twenty microns, and a first therapeutic agent within the fiber. The therapeutic agent is substantially in particulate form. The implants are of a variety of configurations, such as individual fibers, yarns, ropes, tubes, and patches.

  • Publication number: 20140172074
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to stents for insertion into bodily lumens that include at least one strand that forms a self-expanding tubular structure. Specifically, these strands form a plurality of intersections at which one portion of the strand is in proximity to another portion of the same or different strand. More specifically, at least some of those intersections include a plurality of reinforcement members.
