  • Patent number: 10342542
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a housing, a platform, a buttress assembly, a retainer member, and a release assembly. The housing defines a gap that is configured to receive a portion of an end effector of a surgical stapler. A portion of the platform is exposed in the gap defined by the housing. The buttress assembly is positioned on the platform and is exposed in the gap defined by the housing. The retainer member is configured to selectively retain the first buttress assembly against the platform. The release assembly is in communication with the retainer member. The release assembly is configured to store energy. The release assembly is further configured to release the stored energy to thereby cause the at least one retainer to release the first buttress assembly from the platform in response to a clamping action of an end effector positioned in the gap defined by the housing.

  • Publication number: 20190167263
    Abstract: A buttress is applied to an end effector of a surgical stapler. The buttress is loaded on a platform of a buttress applier cartridge. The end effector is closed upon the platform. An adhesive layer of the buttress secures the buttress to the end effector. The buttress is thus adhered to the end effector when the end effector is opened. The end effector is then actuated on tissue of a patient, thereby stapling the buttress to the tissue.

  • Publication number: 20190022774
    Abstract: A hole saw includes a base member configured to secure the hole saw to a drive device and a blade member extending orthogonally from each side of the base member. Each blade member is configured having respective distal ends that flex transversely to a longitudinal cutting direction of the blade member. Responsive to rotational movement of the hole saw via the drive device against a structure, a medial location of each blade member creates an initial respective linear cutting path into the structure, and further movement of the respective blade members into the structure cause the distal ends of the respective blade members to flex transversely to the cutting direction and follow the initial linear cutting path despite the rotational movement of the hole saw relative to the structure to produce a linear cut through the structure.

  • Patent number: 10127585
    Abstract: A method and system that uses interactive wine lists and consumer driven advertising to increase search engine rankings for restaurants and wines through social media websites. A user may automatically display an interactive wine list having a graphical interface or “skin” that is unique to a restaurant through a single mobile application by entering the restaurant information or by using geolocation to determine the restaurant at which the electronic device is located. A unique badge system promotes wines on the interactive wine list to increases wine sales from vendors. In addition, tracking allows all user actions and information entered into the interactive wine list to be used for marketing data and for bounce back marketing.

  • Publication number: 20180168846
    Abstract: Embodiments relate generally to a nasal dilator comprising a body for insertion into a nasal cavity of a nose. The body includes a loop structure having an inner surface, a reverse outer surface, a first side and a second side opposite to the first side. The inner surface defines an aperture and the reverse outer surface is configured for urging against a nasal passage wall of the nose. The body further includes an arm member having a first end coupled to the loop structure and a free end, the arm member extending outwardly from the loop structure and configured to extend along a nasal passage of the nasal cavity and engage with an internal surface of a nostril of the nose.

  • Publication number: 20180133111
    Abstract: There is disclosed a drinking receptacle comprising: a container for containing a fluid for drinking; and an outlet member having an outlet through which the fluid is delivered under a pressure supplied by a user of the receptacle and a collar portion that attaches to an opening of the container such that an undersurface of the collar portion abuts with an upper surface of the opening of the container to form a substantially sealed engagement between the outlet member and the container; wherein either the undersurface of the collar portion or the upper surface of the opening of the container has at least one vent formed therein, the at least one vent being configured such that when said pressure is applied to the outlet member the at least one vent member permits the controlled ingress of air into the container to facilitate flow of fluid from the outlet, and when said pressure is removed the at least one vent member substantially prevents the ingress of air into the container to facilitate a controlled vacuu

  • Publication number: 20170374394
    Abstract: Ways to generate, store, and distribute optimized content are described. Content modification operations including color correction are stored as metadata that is embedded in each content item. The metadata is extracted in order to eliminate or update the modification operations. Modification operations are updated based at least partly on profiles associated with one or more content provision elements. The profiles include device profiles and codec profiles. Each profile may be specific to a particular element or be a generic profile associated with multiple elements. The profiles are generated based on evaluation of the devices and codes and are stored as entries in a look up table. When content is provided, the profiles are used to optimize the content for display.
