  • Publication number: 20230108626
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and software of performing a UE challenge. In one embodiment, User Equipment (UE) initiates a UE challenge procedure to a home network before engaging in a primary authentication procedure by generating a UE challenge by encrypting a random nonce with a home network public key, and transmitting a first message containing the UE challenge toward the home network. The UE receives a second message containing a challenge response to the UE challenge, processes the challenge response to determine whether the home network decrypted the random nonce in response to the UE challenge, and verifies an identity of the home network when the home network decrypted the random nonce in response to the UE challenge.

  • Publication number: 20230091201
    Abstract: A device and method for intravascular treatment of atherosclerotic plaque prior to balloon angioplasty which microperforates the plaque with small sharp spikes acting as serrations for forming cleavage lines or planes in the plaque. The spikes may also be used to transport medication into the plaque. The plaque preparation treatment enables subsequent angioplasty to be performed at low balloon pressures of about 4 atmospheres or less, reduces dissections, and avoids injury to the arterial wall. The subsequent angioplasty may be performed with a drug-eluting balloon (DEB) or drug-coated balloon (DCB). The pre-angioplasty perforation procedure enables more drug to be absorbed during DEB or DCB angioplasty, and makes the need for a stent less likely. Alternatively, any local incidence of plaque dissection after balloon angioplasty may be treated by applying a thin, ring-shaped tack at the dissection site only, rather than applying a stent over the overall plaque site.
