  • Publication number: 20210046578
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a welding electrode and a holder with a primary electrical connection for carrying a welding current. The electrode and the holder may separate easily due to a weak interference fit of the primary electrical connection. Bare hands may provide sufficient force for separation. The electrode and the holder may be configured for self-alignment. A quick-release mechanism may prevent unintentional dislodgement of the electrode from the holder and include a rotation-resistant device for preventing electrode rotation. A secondary electrical connection may be included to supplement or replace the primary electrical connection. A workpiece clamping force, traditionally intended for clamping the electrode to a workpiece, may also be utilized to enable the secondary electrical connection.

  • Publication number: 20200054860
    Abstract: An introducer includes a dilator received in a lumen defined by an introducer sheath and including a dilation end extending distally beyond a distal end of the introducer sheath. The introducer sheath includes a flat wire reinforcement having a hollow cylindrical shape sandwiched between an inner PTFE tube and an outer nylon tube. The outer nylon tube includes a distal segment that extends distally beyond the PTFE tube, which extends distally beyond the PTFE tube, which extends distally beyond the flat wire reinforcement. A withdrawal support wire has a distal end attached to a distal end turn of the flat wire reinforcement and extends in a proximal direction in parallel with a longitudinal axis between an outer surface of the nylon tube and an inner surface of the PTFE tube. The withdrawal support wire is configured to be in tension when the sheath is placed in tension to inhibit distal stretch separation breakage.

  • Patent number: 10441256
    Abstract: Among other things, there are disclosed apparatuses and methods for medically sealing an opening in a vessel or wall. For example, in medical applications, a delivery tube is provided for insertion through a sheath into a vessel (e.g. a blood vessel). A dome-shaped seal fixed to a filament, an absorbent and/or compressible buffer, and a locking member are provided in the delivery tube. The delivery tube is configured so that it can be inserted into the vessel through a sheath. Tension is maintained on the filament to hold the seal against the tube or sheath. The sheath is pulled out, which pulls out the tube at the same time, leaving the seal over the opening in the vessel wall. The locking member compresses the buffer against the outside of the vessel and with the filament holds the seal in place against the inside of a vessel.

  • Patent number: 9770320
    Abstract: A repair device (10) for affixing a migrating stent graft (30) to the interior surface of a vessel wall (31). The repair device includes tubular graft (11) with a bare or uncovered stent (16) affixed to the proximal end (12). The bare stent includes a plurality of distally pointed barbs (17) for securing the repair device to a vessel wall. A second stent (15) is positioned in the passage (14) of the tubular graft to expand the graft against the interior surface of the migrating stent graft (30). Proximally pointing barbs (20) are affixed to the struts of the second stent and extend through the graft material for securing the repair device to the migrating stent graft. Biological glue (22) and other sealing material (23) can be applied to the tubular graft and/or stents for sealing the repair device against the vessel wall and/or the interior of the migrating stent graft.

  • Patent number: 9619467
    Abstract: A dynamic classification dictionary is built for use in profiling and targeting users for additional relevant content. Behavioral data is gathered from user activity, and user documents and actions are categorized. Author-generated document classification information is analyzed and assigned a first taxonomic noun to characterize the document. User-generated tags characterizing a portion of the document are assigned a second taxonomic noun. Search terms that resulted in the user accessing the document are identified and assigned a third taxonomic noun. Attributes related to the manner in which the document was accessed are evaluated and assigned a fourth taxonomic noun. The document is processed using pattern rules to extract a fifth taxonomic noun. The taxonomic nouns are aggregated into a composite set of taxonomic nouns, and the dynamic classification dictionary is built by storing the composite set of taxonomic nouns.

  • Patent number: 9555215
    Abstract: A turbulator for promoting mixing of fluids passing through a body lumen includes an elongate flow perturbing component and an elongate shape controlling component freely slidable within the flow perturbing component. The turbulator is adjustable from a low profile, lumen access configuration to a deployed configuration via sliding the shape controlling component within the flow perturbing component. Adjusting the turbulator within a body lumen of a patient induces turbulence within a flow of fluid passing through the body lumen to increase mixing of a treatment fluid with the body fluid by way of the induced turbulence.
