  • Patent number: 10646365
    Abstract: A method for implanting a prosthesis centrally within a curved lumen includes loading a prosthesis into a delivery sheath, advancing the sheath in a patient towards the curved lumen to place at least the proximal end of the prosthesis within the curved lumen, and centering the proximal end of the prosthesis and/or the distal end of the sheath within the curved lumen. In a first advancing step, the outer catheter containing the inner sheath is advanced together towards the curved lumen to a location proximal of the curved lumen and, in a second advancing step, the inner sheath containing the prosthesis is advanced into the curved lumen to place at least the proximal end within the curved lumen while the outer catheter substantially remains at the location. After centering, the proximal end of the prosthesis is deployed centered within the curved lumen.

  • Publication number: 20200029542
    Abstract: This invention provides an outrigger assembly for fishing that can be quickly deployed from a portable bag about 1 meter long into a fully rigged outrigger in a selected length of 4 meters, 5 meters or 6 meters. Variable length is obtained by adding sections of telescoping pole. Quick deployment is obtained by using detachable line guides that are radially (or side) threadable in conjunction with a separate preassembled outrigger line loop for each deployed length. Different length outrigger line loop assemblies are color coded for quick identification. Stowed length and volume of the collapsed telescoping pole is minimized by the use of outrigger line guides that are removable from the outrigger pole. Threading and unthreading of an outrigger line loop without opening the loop is enabled by the radially threadable line guides. The invention also provides an outrigger holder having two sockets, one for the outrigger and one for a fishing pole.

  • Publication number: 20090016129
    Abstract: A design structure which enables e-fuse memory repair. The design structure uses a compressed bit string to generate another bit string based on a select value. The select value provides instructions to an encoding logic element, which generates a second bit string. For example, the select value may instruct the encoding logic to create a duplicate copy of each bit in the compressed bit string to generate a 2n-bit string. Once the fuses are programmed using the second bit string, the fuse values are read out as a third string, which is decoded by a decoding logic element according to the select value, thereby improving memory repair.

  • Publication number: 20080295876
    Abstract: A folding windscreen having two panels can be made entirely from a single sheet of corrugated plastic. The windscreen is used to prevent wind-blown snow from clogging an ice-fishing hole and to enhance the visibility of ice fishing traps against a background shoreline or expanse of open ice. The single sheet of corrugated plastic material is made into two panels by folding it in half. The fold produces a flexible hinge connecting the two panels. The top and bottom edges of the windscreen panels are reinforced by folding parts of the corrugated sheet to make double thickness, and bonding the two thicknesses together with heat welding or adhesives. Hand-holes are provided for convenient carrying and deploying. Fluorescent or retro-reflective tape can be applied to the folding windscreen to enhance its visibility.

  • Publication number: 20080080274
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method of repairing an integrated circuit of the type comprising of a multitude of memory arrays and a fuse box holding control data for controlling redundancy logic of the arrays. The method comprises the steps of providing the integrated circuit with a control data selector for passing the control data from the fuse box to the memory arrays; providing a source of alternate control data, external of the integrated circuit; and connecting the source of alternate control data to the control data selector. The method comprises the further step of, at a given time, passing the alternate control data from the source thereof, through the control data selector and to the memory arrays to control the redundancy logic of the memory arrays.
