    Abstract: Methods of braiding using a braiding mechanism are described. The braiding mechanism includes an array of filament engagement elements, a mandrel extending from the center of the circular array, a plurality of actuators disposed operably about the array, and a rotating mechanism adapted to rotate one or more filaments. The plurality of filaments are loaded onto the mandrel by looping a middle portion of each filament of the plurality of filaments over an end of the mandrel and extend radially toward and contact the circumferential edge of the circular array of filament engagement elements. The plurality of actuators are operated to engage a first subset of the plurality of filaments and move the engaged filaments in a generally radial direction to a position beyond the circumferential edge of the array. The rotating mechanism is operated to move the engaged filaments about the mandrel axis.

  • Publication number: 20220026381
    Abstract: This invention concerns a method for analysing the ageing stability of a bituminous binder, in particular by reference to its susceptibility to oxidation, by analysing a sample of the bituminous binder by means of electron spin resonance and measuring the integral of the signal of the carbon-centred stable radicals; accelerated ageing of the bituminous binder, comprising: i) heating the bituminous binder, followed by ii) heating the bituminous binder resulting from step i) under pressure; analysing a sample of the aged bituminous binder obtained from step b) by means of electron spin resonance and measuring the integral of the signal of the carbon-centred stable radicals; and comparing the integral of the signal of the carbon-centred stable radicals of the bituminous binder obtained from the first step and that obtained from the previous step.

  • Publication number: 20210386540
    Abstract: A method for deploying an expandable prosthetic heart valve in a patient includes introducing a guidewire into a patient and advancing the guidewire through a vasculature of a patient to a deployment site. A distal end portion of a delivery apparatus and the prosthetic heart valve mounted in a radially compressed configuration along the distal end portion are advanced over the guidewire. The prosthetic heart valve is positioned at the deployment site. A screw mechanism is rotated, which exerts an axially directed onto the prosthetic heart valve, causing the prosthetic heart valve to radially expand from the radially compressed configuration to a radially expanded configuration.

  • Patent number: 11129715
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure provide an introducer device and method for introducing a delivery apparatus into a patient's vasculature. Disclosed methods can include positioning a sleeve of an introducer sheath in a blood vessel of a patient, the sleeve having a lattice layer with a lumen therethrough, inserting a distal end portion of the delivery apparatus and a prosthetic heart valve into the lumen, and advancing the distal end portion of the delivery apparatus through the lumen from the proximal end to the distal end. The method can then include expanding the lumen from a first diameter smaller to a second diameter at least equal to the diameter of the prosthetic heart valve to allow passage of the prosthetic heart valve through the lumen, and returning the lumen of the sleeve to a diameter smaller than the second diameter after advancing the prosthetic heart valve through the lumen.
