  • Patent number: 7959647
    Abstract: A capture device for removal of clots and foreign bodies from vasculature or filtering of particulate from blood flow. The parachute-like capture device is connected to an elongate wire located within a longitudinally elongated tubular member. The invention provides a capture device that is radially expandable and a method for refolding the capture device into a reduced profile during contraction. Thereby, providing an atraumatic retraction of the capture device from within the vasculature.

  • Publication number: 20070249964
    Abstract: A guidewire or section thereof, that has a core member or the like with a plurality of contiguous tapered segments having taper angles that are configured to produce a linear change in stiffness over a longitudinal portion of the device. The device may also have a core section with a continuously changing taper angle to produce a curvilinear profile that is configured to produce a linear change in stiffness of the core over a longitudinal portion of the device. An embodiment has a plurality of radiopaque elements that may be intermittent, continuous or in the form of a helical ribbon for scaled measurement of intracorporeal structure under flouroscopic imaging. Another embodiment has at least one layer of polymer over the distal end of the device.

  • Patent number: 7004955
    Abstract: An intravascular filter device for use in capturing debris which may occur as a result of an intravascular procedure. The filter device includes a proximal section, a distal section and a mid-section. The mid-section includes three rings configured in a sixteen apices alternating V-pattern. The filter device specifically embodies structure that provides enhanced radial opening and angular resistance to collapse in its expanded state. While, in its compressed state the filter device provides an extremely small compressed profile giving it the desired ability to be delivered into very small vessels of the human vasculature.
