  • Patent number: 8292871
    Abstract: A method for treating an occlusion in a coronary artery of a patient includes percutaneously advancing an occlusion treatment tool (such as an angioplasty balloon or stent delivery device) through the vasculature of the patient and into a coronary artery to a site of the occlusion. Following the treatment of the occlusion, a therapeutic agent is admitted into the first coronary artery. The therapeutic agent is selected to treat microvasculature obstructions at a target cardiac tissue site distal to the site of the occlusion.

  • Patent number: 8152786
    Abstract: A catheter for collecting fluid such as blood from a vessel such as a coronary sinus of a patient has an elongated, flexible tubular portion and an annular sealing member spaced from a distal end of the tubular member. A proximal end of the tubular member is adapted to be connected to a source of suction for applying suction to a collection lumen of the tubular member. The distal end is placed in a blood vessel with the sealing member spaced from opposing surface of the vessel in an absence of a suction applied to the collection lumen. Suction is applied to the collection lumen in an amount sufficient to draw blood from the vessel through the fluid inlet and into the collection lumen and further sufficient to urge the opposing surface of the vessel to migrate into sealing engagement with the sealing member.

  • Patent number: 7653283
    Abstract: In an example embodiment, a light pipe mounting interface may include a support strip and at least one light pipe projecting from the support strip. The light pipe is to extend through a housing. A hook projects from the support strip to engage with the housing, and a cantilever snap head projects from an extension of the support strip to engage with the housing. The cantilever snap head and the hook lock the light pipe in a predetermined position with respect to the housing.

  • Publication number: 20090234321
    Abstract: Visualization of a medical procedure to be performed in a coronary vessel (such as a coronary sinus) of a patient is achieved by the steps of: identifying a coronary vessel for a procedure and placing a catheter within the coronary vessel. The coronary vessel is occluded at a site proximal to a distal end of the catheter. A contrast medium is injected into the coronary vessel through the catheter distal end for visualization of the procedure within the coronary vessel. Following the procedure, the contrast medium is removed through the catheter distal end and occlusion of the coronary vessel is discontinued.

  • Publication number: 20080255013
    Abstract: Use of an oil-soluble hydrocarbyl phenol aldehyde condensate as an antiwear additive in a lubricating oil composition. The oil-soluble hydrocarbyl phenol aldehyde condensate has the following structure: wherein n is 0 to 10, preferably 1 to 8, more preferably 2 to 6, and most preferably 3 to 5; Y is a divalent bridging group, and is preferably a hydrocarbyl group, preferably having from 1 to 4 carbon atoms; and R is a hydrocarbyl group having from 4 to 30, preferably 8 to 18, and most preferably 9 to 15 carbon atoms.

  • Publication number: 20080181146
    Abstract: A WiFi antenna system includes a WiFi amplifier having a reception antenna and a separate transmission antenna for respectively receiving from and transmitting to WiFi devices such as laptop computers and the like. A logic circuit controls transmission and reception of signals via the antennas. Preferably, a splitter-combiner splits signals from a local area network (LAN) and a signal level comparator determines whether the LAN signals are transmission signals which should be transmitted via the transmission antenna. If so, the logic circuit controls the power levels of the two antennas to that effect. Preferably, the transmission antenna is normally at a standby power level while the reception antenna is at a high gain operational power level. If a signal is to be transmitted via the transmission antenna, the logic circuit increases the transmission power level to a maximum allowable and decreases the reception power level to a standby level.

  • Publication number: 20080125746
    Abstract: A catheter for collecting fluid (such as blood) from a vessel (such as a coronary sinus) of a patient has a distal end with a fluid inlet to receive a blood and at least one fluid outlet disposed proximally to the fluid inlet. An occlusion member is positioned between the fluid inlet and the fluid outlet. The catheter is placed in a blood vessel with the fluid inlet disposed to receive antegrade flow. The blood vessel is occluded with the occlusion member. Flow through the catheter is passed through the fluid outlet and back into the vessel proximal to the occlusion member. A valve selectively opens and closes the fluid outlet.

  • Publication number: 20050196839
    Abstract: Disclosed are various forms of an active, isolated ?-secretase enzyme in purified and recombinant form. This enzyme is implicated in the production of amyloid plaque components which accumulate in the brains of individuals afflicted with Alzheimer's disease. Recombinant cells that produce this enzyme either alone or in combination with some of its natural substrates (?-APPwt and ?-APPsw) are also disclosed, as are antibodies directed to such proteins. These compositions are useful for use in methods of selecting compounds that modulate ?-secretase. Inhibitors of ?-secretase are implicated as therapeutics in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease.
