  • Publication number: 20090306471
    Abstract: Some embodiments of the system described herein provide transvesical access to a body cavity (e.g., the peritoneum, the bladder, the ureter, the renal pelvis, or the retroperitoneum). For example, such a transvesical approach may provide access to the peritoneal cavity through an opening formed in the bladder wall or other structures in the urinary tract (e.g., ureter, renal pelvis, or the like). Thus, the transvesical approach through the bladder wall permits a surgeon to examine, conduct surgical or therapeutic procedures, or a combination thereof inside peritoneal cavity. Further, the transvesical access to the peritoneal cavity or another body cavity provides the opportunity to use flexible or rigid endoscopes, depending upon the procedure being performed.

  • Publication number: 20080243091
    Abstract: A delivery system to provide end organ oxygenation and even systematic oxygenation in the face of ischemic result. The deliver system including a retrograde oxygenation and perfusion stent. The stent employing at least two and possibly more channels to allow flow of the perfusate from the device to the renal pelvis then to a back out to a collection apparatus. The stent may include various vital sign monitors, such as a renal pressure monitor, temperature monitor, and even an oxygenation monitor. The stent may include an anchoring device to allow the stent to be anchored into the renal pelvis in a temporary way during the retrograde oxygenation process.
