  • Publication number: 20190374229
    Abstract: An example occlusive implant is disclosed. The example occlusive implant includes an expandable framework configured to shift between a first configuration and a second expanded configuration, an occlusive member disposed along at least a portion of an outer surface of the expandable framework and a resilient member coupled to the occlusive member. Further, the resilient member is configured to keep the occlusive member taut against an outer surface of the expandable member in both the first configuration and the second configuration.

  • Publication number: 20190357916
    Abstract: An example medical device for occluding the left atrial appendage is disclosed. The example medical device for occluding the left atrial appendage includes an expandable member having a first end region and a second end region. The expandable member comprises at least one inflation cavity and at least one valve member configured to selectively seal the inflation cavity. A first inflation media may be disposed within the at least one inflation cavity and a second inflation media may be disposed within the at least one inflation cavity. The second inflation media may be different from the first inflation media. The expandable member may be configured to expand and seal the opening of the left atrial appendage.

  • Publication number: 20190337251
    Abstract: An improved bead setting assembly includes at least one bead setter. The bead setter in turn includes a frame member and magnetic segments pivotally mounted on the frame member at positions about an opening in the frame member. Means are provided to selectively rotate the magnetic segments radially inwardly to a bead retaining position and radially outwardly from the bead retaining position. A plurality of clamp segments are pivotally mounted on the frame member at positions about the frame opening, and each clamp segment in turn includes a clamp arm with a multi-piece construction. Means are provided for selectively rotating the clamp segments radially inwardly into engagement with the bead and radially outwardly from the bead engagement. A rotary encoder is mounted on the frame member and is operatively connected to a selected one of the clamp segments for determining a disposition of the bead.

  • Publication number: 20030153787
    Abstract: Compounds of the formula R2.[(AO)n.R3]m, where R2 is a residue of a group having at least m active hydrogen atoms derived from hydroxyl and/or amino and/or amido groups, AO is alkyleneoxy, n is 2 to 200; R3 includes residue(s) of alkenyl succinic acids and optionally other acids, and m is 2 to 10, but when m is 2 there are other restrictions in the definitions, are disclosed as useful thickeners and/or dispersants in aqueous systems. The use of such materials as thickeners is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 5798331
    Abstract: Compounds of formula (I), where R.sup.1, R.sup.2, R.sup.3, R.sup.4 and R.sup.5 have defined meanings ##STR1## are useful as surfactants especially in agrochemical formulations, pigment dispersions and domestic detergent formulations. Compounds where one of R.sup.1 and R.sup.2 is hydrogen and the other is C.sub.8 to C.sub.18 straight chain alkenyl group, the group --NR.sup.3 R.sup.4 is the residue of a glycamine, especially a glucamine, and R.sup.5 is --NR.sup.3 R.sup.4 as defined (especially a glycamine residue) or a group O.(AO).sub.n.R.sup.6 where AO is an alkylene oxide, especially an ethylene oxide, residue, n is especially from 3 to 50 and R.sup.6 is a C.sub.1 to C.sub.6 alkyl group, are particularly desirable.
