  • Patent number: 10621328
    Abstract: A method of authenticating access on an electronic device. A digital image overlaid by an array of alphanumeric characters is displayed on a three-dimensional display of the electronic device. The digital image includes a three-dimensional representation of a scene and is displayed in three-dimensional coordinates. The array of alphanumeric characters is positioned on the three-dimensional display with respect to the digital image in three dimensions in response to received input. Access to the electronic device is authenticated in response to detecting that a designated character in the digital image is aligned with a designated object in the digital image.

  • Publication number: 20200101268
    Abstract: Embodiments hereof relate to methods of delivering a valve prosthesis to an annulus of a native valve of a heart, the native valve having chordae tendineae. A chordae management catheter is positioned within a ventricle of the heart, the chordae management catheter having a displacement component at a distal end thereof. The displacement component has an annular shape and defines a central lumen therethrough. The displacement component is radially expanded to push chordae tendineae within the ventricle radially outward. A valve delivery system is introduced into the ventricle of the heart via a ventricular wall of the heart. The valve delivery system has the valve prosthesis at a distal portion thereof. The valve delivery system is advanced through the central lumen of the radially expanded displacement component towards the annulus of the native valve of the heart. The valve prosthesis is deployed into apposition with the annulus of the native valve.

  • Patent number: 10588649
    Abstract: A clot retrieval device (9501) for removing clot from a blood vessel comprises an inner elongate body (9503) and an outer elongate body (9504) at least partially overlying the inner elongate body (9503). The device also comprises an elongate member or shaft (9502) having a proximal end which extends exterior of a patient so that a user can retrieve the stent-basket device and captured clot by retracting the shaft (9502). The outer elongate body (9504) and the inner elongate body (9503) are connected to the distal end of the shaft (9502) and are expandable relative to the shaft (9502) from a collapsed delivery configuration to an expanded deployed configuration. The outer elongate body (9504) is expandable relative to the inner elongate body (9503) to a radial extent which is greater than the radial extent of the inner body (9503) in the deployed configuration.

  • Publication number: 20180353297
    Abstract: An expandable tissue anchor is provided that includes an elongate tissue-coupling portion configured to be delivered through a cardiac tissue wall, and a flexible elongate tension member, which is coupled to a portion of the tissue-coupling portion such that a tensile force can be applied to the tissue-coupling portion after it has been expanded. A portion of the tension member is slidably disposed through a passage defined by the anchor. A sleeve encloses a portion of the tension member between the tissue-coupling portion and a distal opening of the passage. The sleeve and the passage are sized and shaped such that the size and shape of the passage prevent proximal movement of the sleeve past the passage upon application of the tensile force to the tension member, thereby limiting compression and deformation of the expanded tissue-coupling portion by the tension member. Other embodiments are also described.
