  • Publication number: 20210275177
    Abstract: Devices and methods for deploying an anastomotic stent between portions of the gastro-intestinal (GI) tract are disclosed. The anastomotic stents are configured to atraumatically engage the tissue walls and to permit the flow of fluid, partially digested food, and food. The stents can be deployed using endoscopic catheter devices, laparoscopic tools, and combinations of both endoscopic tools and laparoscopic tools. Examples of anastomoses include anastomoses between the stomach and a portion of the intestines such as the jejunum. Anastomoses can also be formed between two closed ends of the intestines, such as two closed ends of the colon formed during a colon resection procedure. Anastomoses can also be formed between a fundal pouch formed during a gastric bypass procedure and the jejunum. Laparoscopic tools are disclosed to deploy a stent by selectively removing a radial restraint on a self expanding stent with the restraint removed through the laparoscopic access points.

  • Publication number: 20210172713
    Abstract: Aluminum structures, such as tactical vehicle hulls, include plural aluminum components formed from a first alloy composition and joined by one or more welded seam(s). The welded seam(s) may be formed by friction stir welding and/or gas metal arc welding using welding wire made from the first alloy composition. In this manner, all component parts are made from the same alloy composition, providing a more homogeneous structure. The welded component parts then may be placed in a heat treatment furnace to temper the structure. Because essentially all of the aluminum structure before heat treating—the welded seam(s) and the individual component parts—is formed of the same starting material and these parts/seam(s) are simultaneously and evenly heat treated, the resultant hardened, heat-treated part (e.g., a vehicle hull) has a more homogeneous hardened/heat treated structure in the individual parts and across the welded seam(s).

  • Publication number: 20210124763
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide custom synchronization procedures in file synchronization. A primary agent is used to monitor for changes, create synchronization plans to synchronized changes, and execute the synchronization plan. The primary agent, however, interacts with one or more separate custom agents to customize the synchronization plans. One exemplary technique involves monitoring for local changes to a first copy of a file tree and updates from another computing device regarding remote changes to a second copy of the file tree. When a change to either copy is identified, a synchronization plan for the change is created based on a default synchronization procedure. The synchronization plan is sent to a custom agent for customization. The custom agent creates the custom synchronization plan by modifying the synchronization plan and sends the custom synchronization plan to the primary agent. The custom synchronization plan is then executed by the primary agent.

  • Patent number: 10951491
    Abstract: A server system includes a memory, a processor in communication with the memory, and a server managing a plurality of cooperating microservices. The server executes on the at least one processor to capture tracing information reported during invocation of a set of cooperating microservices. The tracing information includes a service name and version information associated with at least one microservice of the set of cooperating microservices. Additionally, the server builds an application deployment profile from the service name and version information, compares the application deployment profile to an existing profile, and classifies the application deployment profile as a previously existing profile, a subset profile, an extension profile, and/or an updated profile. The server tracks performance data associated with the application deployment profile.

  • Patent number: 10592464
    Abstract: Methods, non-transitory computer readable media and computing device that enabling direct memory access (DMA) capable devices for remote DMA (RDMA) are illustrated. With this technology, a first network message is inserted into a first location of a remote memory region of a computing device via DMA. The remote memory region is defined in an anchor record retrieved from a shared memory of the computing device. A local head pointer is synchronized, via DMA, with a remote head pointer stored by the computing device. The local and remote head pointers correspond to the first location of the remote memory region of the computing device. Following receipt of a DMA completion message, a notification message is sent, via DMA, to the computing device indicating that the network message has been transferred.

  • Patent number: 10552456
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer program products are included for performing tracing in a distributed environment. An example method includes determining that a first span corresponds to a client span kind and that a second span corresponds to a server span kind. The first span is cached in association with a span identifier. An identifier associated with the second span is matched to the span identifier associated with the first span. Based on the matching, dependency information is generated corresponding to the first span and the second span.

  • Publication number: 20200000957
    Abstract: Fibrin Sealant products are used for topical hemostasis and tissue adherence. They are composed of two main reagents, fibrinogen and thrombin. When mixed in solution fibrinogen is converted to fibrin upon the addition of activated thrombin. Therefore typically these two components are stored separately in a lyophilized or liquid state, and mixed, upon or immediately before, application to a patient. While effective, these products require significant preparation that must take place immediately before application, thus delaying treatment and limiting the use of these haemostatic products to the treatment of mild forms of low pressure and low volume bleeding. Attempts to eliminate this delay and expand the usefulness and effectiveness of these products have resulted in products produced by processes that require the separation of these components and their deposition in distinct layers within the product.

  • Patent number: 10503202
    Abstract: Clock signal control circuitry comprises a clock selector to output a current clock signal selected from two or more candidate clock signals and to execute a clock signal change operation to select a different one of the two or more candidate clock signals for output as the current clock signal; a counter to generate a count value by counting clock pulses of the current clock signal multiplied by a scaling value; and control logic to execute a scaling value change operation to change the scaling value in response to initiation of a clock signal change operation; in which the clock selector and the control logic are configured to cooperate to inhibit the output of the current clock signal during a scaling value change operation.
