  • Patent number: 11406771
    Abstract: In one aspect of the present disclosure, an apparatus for delivering a powdered agent into a subject's body may include a powder chamber housing the powdered agent. The apparatus also may include a chassis in fluid connection with the powder chamber. The chassis may include a first passage for receiving a pressurized gas, a second passage for receiving the powdered agent from the powder chamber, and a junction in fluid communication with the first passage and the second passage. At least a first portion of the pressurized gas is introduced into the powdered agent at the junction to fluidize the powdered agent.

  • Publication number: 20210162175
    Abstract: A medical device may comprise a handle and a flexible sheath extending from the handle. The sheath may include a first chamber configured to receive a first agent and a second chamber configured to receive a second agent. Each of the first chamber and the second chamber may be disposed in a distal portion of the sheath. The sheath may also include a first piston received within the first chamber and a second piston received within the second chamber and at least one actuation element configured to transmit a force from the handle to each of the first piston and the second piston. When the handle is in a first configuration, the first agent may be maintained within the first chamber and the second agent is maintained within the second chamber. When the handle is in a second configuration, the first agent may be released from the first chamber to mix with the second agent.

  • Publication number: 20210128140
    Abstract: Medical devices for cinching and cutting one or more suture, and methods for making and using such devices are disclosed. An example medical device may include a shaft, a sleeve attached to the shaft, cutter slidable within the sleeve, a cinch sleeve releasably coupled to the sleeve, and a cinch member. An elongated inner shaft may extend through and be longitudinally movable within the elongated shaft, sleeve, cutter, cinch sleeve, and cinch member. The inner shaft may be actuated to cinch and cut one or more suture disposed within the device.

  • Publication number: 20210128141
    Abstract: Medical devices for cinch and cutting one or more suture, and methods for making and using such devices are disclosed. An example medical device may include a coupler, a sleeve releasably coupled to the coupler, a cutter slidably disposed within the sleeve, and a suture cinching member movable into and out of the sleeve. A wire may extend through and be longitudinally movable within the coupler to move the suture cinching member and cutter.

  • Publication number: 20210106323
    Abstract: A suture device may include a suture translation assembly configured to be axially translatable within a lumen of a delivery system and a distal assembly configured to be securable to the distal end of the delivery system. The suture translation assembly and the distal assembly may cooperate to enable a user to pass a needle back and forth between the two in order to endoscopically suture a defect.
