  • Publication number: 20190240005
    Abstract: Nasal implants and nasal implant delivery tools are described herein. The nasal implants and tools can be used to deliver the implant in a minimally invasive way. The delivery tools can be adapted to separate the upper lateral cartilage from the septum and to place an implant between the septum and the upper lateral cartilage. The implant can be configured to be placed between the upper lateral cartilage and the septum. The implant system can include a first longitudinal body adapted to engage with upper lateral cartilage and the septum on a first side of the septum and a second longitudinal body adapted to engage with upper lateral cartilage and the septum on a second side of the septum.

  • Publication number: 20190015255
    Abstract: The methods, procedures, kits, and devices described herein assist with the healing process of tissue that was previously or simultaneously treated for a therapeutic or cosmetic effect. The methods, procedures, kits, and devices described herein can also provide temporary simulated results of a cosmetic procedure to allow for visual assessment to select the type of procedure or for treatment planning in advance of the surgical procedure.

  • Patent number: 9615914
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods for nipple and breast formation are described where devices precondition or expand a target nipple tissue to reduce the pressure exerted by the skin on an eventual implant. Generally, the apparatus comprises a mold having a contact surface which is curved in conformance with a breast upon which the mold is positionable, the contact surface having an adhesive for securement upon the breast, and the mold defining a cavity along the contact surface which conforms to a size of a nipple to be formed upon the breast and where the cavity further comprises the adhesive for securement to the nipple. A breast enlargement device comprises a cup larger than the target breast and further defines an inner surface which adheres to the breast when contacted.

  • Publication number: 20140277124
    Abstract: Tissue anchoring and deployment systems are described herein. Generally, an anchor housing may define a receiving channel within or along its periphery. A securement member which is adjustably slidable relative to the receiving channel and further defining a suture receiving channel along a portion of the member may also be used such that the suture receiving channel is aligned with an opening defined along a first surface. The securement member and a compression surface along the receiving channel are spaced apart from one another and form a suture compression interface. Additionally, a length of suture may also be used where the suture has a first portion positioned along the suture compression interface and a second portion passed through the suture receiving channel and opening along the first surface. The compression interface has a height which is sized to be relatively smaller than a diameter of the first portion of suture.

  • Publication number: 20140148829
    Abstract: A catheter system and corresponding methods are provided for accessing a blood vessel true lumen from a sub-intimal plane of the vessel. The catheter system includes visualization elements for determining the orientation of the true lumen with respect to the sub-intimal plane at an identified entry site from a position in the sub-intimal plane. The entry site is distal to a chronic total occlusion (CTO). The catheter system also includes a system for physically securing tissue of the sub-intimal plane at the entry site to the catheter system. The attaching system reduces or eliminates catheter float within the sub-intimal space. The catheter system further includes re-entry devices to establish and maintain a path from the sub-intimal plane back into the vessel true lumen.

  • Patent number: 8702679
    Abstract: Interventional catheter-based systems and methods are described herein for use in generating an initial pathway through vascular occlusions. The catheter systems generally include two elements. A first element is a Blunt Dissection Catheter including a manually actuated assembly located at the distal tip of the Blunt Dissection Catheter that performs blunt dissection in the vascular occlusion to produce a dissection track, or small pathway through the occlusion. The second element is a Sheath Catheter that serves as a conduit within which the Blunt Dissection Catheter is freely advanced, retracted and rotated. The first and second elements are used in some combination to cross vascular occlusions in both the coronary and peripheral vasculature.

  • Patent number: 6084571
    Abstract: A substantially stationary sensor for providing an input signal to an electrical device based on the mechanical force applied to a sensor includes first and second laminar springs. The deflection of the laminar springs caused by the force placed on the sensor is measured by opto-electronic systems associated with each laminar spring. The output of the opto-electrical systems on each of two orthogonal axes is an electrical signal which is transformed into a signal usable by the electrical device. One specific application of the system is for a mouse used to control the position of a cursor on a computer screen.
