  • Publication number: 20200276038
    Abstract: An apparatus and methods tissue restoration are provided. The apparatus may include a catheter shaft extending from a proximal end to a distal tip and a translucent first distal balloon positioned on a translucent distal segment of the catheter shaft proximal to the distal tip in fluid communication with a drug source via a first lumen, the first distal balloon may include first and second outer surfaces, and a patterned outer profile of first distal balloon formed by the first outer surface and the second outer surface. A second distal balloon positioned inside of and concentric with the first distal balloon. A first light fiber and a second light fiber each positioned in the catheter shaft and extending through the translucent distal segment. The drug source provides at least one drug to the first distal balloon via the first lumen.

  • Publication number: 20200101269
    Abstract: An apparatus and methods to form a tissue scaffolding are provided. The apparatus may include a catheter shaft extending from a proximal end to a distal tip, a distal balloon positioned on the catheter shaft proximal to the distal tip, and a proximal balloon positioned on the catheter shaft proximal to the distal balloon. The apparatus may further include an intermediate balloon positioned on a distal segment of the catheter shaft proximal to the distal balloon and distal to the proximal balloon. The intermediate balloon and the distal segment each include a translucent material. A light fiber may extend through the distal segment. A first lumen and a second lumen may be arranged in the catheter shaft, the first lumen comprising a first port located between the distal balloon and the intermediate balloon, and the second lumen comprising a second port located between the intermediate balloon and the proximal balloon.

  • Publication number: 20190377633
    Abstract: Apparatus and method for storing data in a non-volatile memory (NVM), such as a flash memory in a solid-state drive (SSD). In some embodiments, a distributed storage space of the NVM is defined to extend across a plural number of regions of the NVM. A non-standard parity data set is provided having a plural number of data elements greater than or equal to the plural number of regions in the storage space. The data set is written by storing a first portion of the data elements and a first parity value to the plural number of regions and a remaining portion of the data elements and a second parity value to a subset of the plural number of regions. The regions can comprise semiconductor dies in a flash memory, and the distributed storage space can be a garbage collection unit formed using one erasure block from each flash die.

  • Patent number: 4981267
    Abstract: A fuel injection nozzle of the inwardly opening type including a valve member surrounded by a sleeve, the valve member and sleeve both being movable by fuel under pressure supplied to an inlet. The valve member is biased into engagement with a seating by the action of a spring which acts on the valve member through a spring abutment. The sleeve acts on the spring abutment through an annular intermediate member. The extent of movement of the sleeve is limited by the engagement of the intermediate member with a stop surface and the extent of movement of the valve member is limited by the engagement of a step on the valve member with the intermediate member.

  • Patent number: 4930998
    Abstract: A rotary distributor type fuel injection pump has a pair of angularly adjustable stop rings having shaped internal surfaces which can engage with the cam followers of the pump to limit the outward movement of the pump plungers. The stop rings are interconnected by a saddle member and a spring biases the saddle member into engagement with a stop. The stop which may be adjustable determines the normal maximum amount of fuel which can be supplied by the pump. For starting purposes the stop rings are moved to an excess fuel position which is achieved by a pin engaged in a slot in one of the rings. The pin is spring biased to move the one end and hence the other ring to an excess fuel position and is coupled to a fluid pressure operable piston which when the associated engine is started is moved by fluid pressure to move the pin to allow the spring to move the saddle member and stop into engagement with the stop.

  • Patent number: 4903661
    Abstract: A fuel pumping apparatus for supplying fuel to an engine has a high pressure pump which includes a component movable to determine the maximum amount of fuel which can be supplied to the engine. The component is biased by a spring to a minimum fuel position and to adjust the setting of the component there is provided a three armed lever one arm of which is coupled to the component. The other two arms are coupled to engine operating parameter responsive devices. In the example the device is a piston which is spring loaded and is responsive to the output pressure of a low pressure fuel pump and the device includes a diaphragm which is subjected to the air inlet manifold pressure.

  • Patent number: 4372756
    Abstract: Coal is processed first through a moving bed reactor and then through a fixed bed reactor. Hot carbonized coal char is fed from the first stage reactor to the second stage reactor via a lock hopper and gas is taken off from the reactors either in separate streams or in a common stream.

  • Patent number: 3976595
    Abstract: Sulfonic acid catalysts useful in, for example, esterification reactions and which contain an admixture of any of several phosphorus compounds including specifically ortho-phosphoric acid are much less corrosive toward metal processing equipment than are sulfonic acid catalysts without the phosphoric admixture.
