  • Patent number: 11124676
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing an optical member which can improve bonding properties between a first member having a light transmitting property and a second member. The method includes a precuring step of forming a photocuring precured resin layer on a surface of the first member or the second member, the photocuring precured resin layer having a thin film on a side to be bonded with the second member or the first member, a bonding step of bonding the first member and the second member via the precured resin layer, and a final curing step of final-curing the precured resin layer to form a light transmitting resin layer. It is thereby possible to reduce the elastic modulus of the precured resin layer, suppress protrusion during bonding, and improve bonding properties.

  • Patent number: 10478280
    Abstract: Devices and methods for placing an adjunct at a tissue treatment site prior to delivering staples through the tissue and adjunct are provided. In one embodiment, a flowable adjunct precursor can be deposited on the surface of the tissue at the tissue treatment site. The flowable adjunct precursor can be configured to solidify after deposition to form an adjunct. In another embodiment, an adjunct delivery device can include a non-stapling end effector configured to deliver an adjunct to a tissue treatment site. In either case, staples can be delivered through the adjunct and tissue after placement of the adjunct at the tissue treatment site.
