  • Publication number: 20110160575
    Abstract: A method and system for delivering a medicament into tissue, for example via a balloon with small pores. Optionally, the pressure used is high enough to cause jetting, but the pore sizes, pore density, pressure and/or delivery time are such that the jetting do not cause unacceptable tissue damage. Optionally, the pores are smaller than 2 microns, are between 300 and 600 per square centimeter and the pressure is above 8 atmospheres.

  • Publication number: 20100312054
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods are provided including identifying a subject as suffering from a disorder of an organ of the subject. In response to the identifying, a shaft is inserted into the organ, not via a natural lumen of the subject. Using a laser beam emitted from a distal portion of the shaft, a portion of the organ is ablated. A vicinity of the portion of the organ is cooled by introducing a fluid to the vicinity, and, subsequently aspirating the fluid therefrom, the introduction and aspiration of the fluid being performed via the shaft, while the shaft is inside the organ. Other embodiments are also described.

  • Publication number: 20100023017
    Abstract: A bone filler material delivery system comprising a longitudinal channel, wherein said channel incorporates a perforated segment at least partially along, at or substantially near its distal end, and wherein said channel is sealed at its distal end so the filler material may be delivered only by the lumen and through the perforated segment peripheral wall/s. Optionally, said system comprising an expandable-collapsible permeable bag capable of being inserted into a bone while in collapsed configuration and then to expand within the bone when filled with bone voids filler. The mesh structure is designed to allow such permeable bag to expand to a predetermined size or shape under certain pressures, and further allows exudation of said bone void filler through its walls. One satisfactory result is achieved by extracting the permeable bag out of treated body, thus promoting a flow of the bone void filler through its pores into the cancellous bone and/or cavity in the bone.
