  • Patent number: 10925735
    Abstract: A system for implanting a repair device onto a native valve of a natural heart to repairing the native valve of a patient during a non-open-heart procedure. The system includes a surgical delivery instrument, a valve repair device, and a gripper control mechanism. The surgical delivery instrument has at least one lumen. The valve repair device is configured to be delivered through the lumen of the surgical delivery instrument and to be attached to a native valve of a patient. The valve repair device has a pair of paddles, and first and second gripping members. The paddles are movable between an open position and a closed position. The paddles and the first and second gripping members are configured to attach to the native valve of the patient. The gripper control mechanisms each include a suture and a wire having a loop at a distal end. The suture extends from the surgical delivery instrument and through the loop of the wire. The suture is removably attached to the gripping member.

  • Publication number: 20210049733
    Abstract: Aspects of this disclosure include technologies for object registration based on a dual-stream pyramid registration network, which is configured to compute multi-scale deformation fields from dual feature pyramids. The disclosed technologies further enable the multi-scale deformation fields to be refined in a coarse-to-fine manner, resulting in the capability for handling significant deformations between two objects, such as large displacements in spatial domain or slice space. Further, the disclosed technologies enable various functions based on the registered objects, such as automatic labeling, image comparison and differentiation, and medical image registration and navigation.

  • Publication number: 20210049400
    Abstract: Aspects of this disclosure include technologies for detecting mislabeled products. In one embodiment, the disclosed system will capture an image of a product when the MRL of the product is scanned or being scanned. After recognizing the product in the image, the size of the area containing the product may be calculated. Subsequently, the disclosed system can determine whether the MRL mismatches the product in the image if this size of the area containing the product does not match the standard size associated with the MRL.

  • Patent number: 10921969
    Abstract: A user interface for rotating imagery among a plurality of canonical views of a geographic area of interest is disclosed. The interface includes at least one rotation control icon for rotating the imagery among a plurality of canonical views of the geographic area, and a direction indicating portion that indicates a compass direction associated with the canonical view presented on the display device. In particular implementations, the interface can be configured to come into view over the imagery whenever a user navigates to a particular view of the imagery where a plurality of canonical views is available. The motion of the navigation control interface appearing into the imagery is intended to draw attention to the control interface to inform the user that additional canonical views are available.

  • Publication number: 20210041314
    Abstract: A surgical instrument has an end effector and a region of stress-responsive colorimetric material on the end effector. The material has a color that changes with increases in pressure applied to tissue by the end effector, and is positioned to be visible to a user or endoscopic camera when in a body cavity engaging tissue. In some applications, image processing techniques are applied to images of the end effector captured during use and can be used to generate feedback to the user if the material is observed to change to a color indicative of a force exceeding a predetermined threshold.

  • Publication number: 20210035150
    Abstract: A monitoring project is defined interactively through an interface. Resources needed for the project are obtained, configured, arranged, and verified within a target area. Video and audio feeds are captured and analyzed during a project period within the target area and customer interactions and intentions are derived from detected customer behaviors within the feeds. The intentions and behaviors are indexed with aggregated metrics within a data store. The interface provides custom queries, reports, interactive graphics, and real-time notifications from the data store that depict the custom aggregated metrics for the intentions and behaviors of the monitoring project.

  • Patent number: 10905553
    Abstract: An exemplary valve repair device for repairing a valve of a patient has a paddle, and a clasp. The clasp has a fixed arm attached to the paddle and a moveable arm. The moveable arm includes barbs that are spaced apart from a connection between the moveable arm and the fixed arm. The moveable arm is movable between open and closed positions relative to the fixed arm. The moveable arm has a weakened portion between the barbs and the connection between the moveable arm and the fixed arm. Applying tension to the movable arm in a retraction direction stretches the moveable arm and moves the barbs in the retraction direction.
