  • Patent number: 7722638
    Abstract: Devices and methods for delivery or retrieval of a distal protection device. A distal protection assembly may comprise an outer sheath, an inner shaft disposed within a lumen of the outer sheath, a distal protection device disposed at a distal end of the inner shaft; and a manifold coupled to a proximal end of the outer sheath that is adapted for moving the outer sheath relative to the inner shaft.

  • Publication number: 20090198209
    Abstract: A manifold is disclosed which includes a manifold body that defines a main lumen, a primary injection line and a port. A check valve system is also provided which permits flow from the primary injection line to the main lumen while selectively preventing back flow from the main lumen to the primary injection line and, simultaneously, permitting flow from the port to the primary injection line while preventing back flow from the primary injection line to the port.

  • Patent number: 7172572
    Abstract: A number of devices are illustrated for providing a manifold that can simply and selectively couple a number of different therapeutic and diagnostic elements to a catheter or other medical device. Some examples include devices having sliding actuators, rotary actuators, button actuators, or combinations thereof, for easily changing the valve scheme and fluid pathways within a manifold.

  • Patent number: 6986742
    Abstract: A pressure activated valve for a three-way connection between a catheter, an injector and a pressure transducer is disclosed. The valve includes a body that has an inlet for connection to an injector, an outlet for connection to a catheter and a secondary connection for connection to a pressure transducer. The body also includes a seal seat disposed between the secondary connection in both the inlet and the outlet. The body is flexibly connected to a plug seal. The plug seal is disposed between the seal seat in both the inlet and the outlet. The plug seal is movable between an open position spaced apart from the seal seat and biased towards the inlet and the outlet and a closed position against the seal seat thereby isolating the secondary connection from both the inlet and the outlet.

  • Patent number: 6958051
    Abstract: The present invention is drawn to a valve control accessory for use with a dual balloon stent delivery catheter. The accessory device includes a bifurcated fluid line adapted to connect to an inflation device using a proximal luer connector. Additional luer connectors at the distal ends of the main fluid line and branched fluid line are engaged to connect to the proximal ends of a bifurcated catheter shaft, allowing the fluid lines to be in fluid communication with a parent and sidebranch balloon respectively. In one embodiment, stopcocks are formed in both the main and sidebranch fluid lines to allow independent or simultaneous expansion of each balloon. A pressure indicator may be placed on either fluid line to indicate which line is under pressure.
