Methods And Devices For Removing Material From A Body Lumen

View page
US Patent:
7771444, Aug 10, 2010
Filed:
Dec 19, 2001
Appl. No.:
10/027418
Inventors:
Himanshu Patel - San Jose CA,
John B. Simpson - Woodside CA,
Darren G. Doud - San Jose CA,
Assignee:
Fox Hollow Technologies, Inc. - Plymouth MN
International Classification:
A61B 17/22
US Classification:
606159, 606167, 606170
Abstract:
A debulking catheter comprising a debulking assembly for debulking a body lumen. The catheters of the present invention can include a flexible proximal portion coupled to a rigid distal portion. A tissue debulking assembly can be disposed within the rigid portion to debulk the body lumen. In exemplary embodiments, the rigid portion is rotatably coupled to the flexible portion such that rotation or deflection of the rigid portion, relative to the flexible portion, can expose the tissue debulking assembly through a window in the catheter to debulk the body lumen.

US Patent:
2013024, Sep 19, 2013
Filed:
May 7, 2013
Appl. No.:
13/889328
Inventors:
Signe Erickson - Menlo Park CA,
Randolph E. Campbell - Menlo Park CA,
Darren Doud - San Jose CA,
Michael Barrett - Menlo Park CA,
David Batten - Menlo Park CA,
Christina Skieller - Menlo Park CA,
Assignee:
ForSight Vision4, Inc. - Menlo Park CA
International Classification:
A61F 9/00
US Classification:
604 44
Abstract:
Methods and apparatus provide a therapeutic fluid to devices implanted in the body, for example to containers of devices implanted in the eye of a patient. The methods and apparatus may comprise an injector to increase an amount of therapeutic agent injected into the device implanted in the eye, or a structure to receive the therapeutic fluid within the device implanted in the eye, or combinations thereof. The device implanted in the eye may comprise a reservoir chamber having a fluid with a density different than the therapeutic fluid, and the apparatus can be adapted to at least partially separate the implanted device fluid from therapeutic fluid within the reservoir chamber to increase and amount of therapeutic fluid placed in the reservoir chamber.

US Patent:
2013016, Jun 27, 2013
Filed:
Sep 13, 2012
Appl. No.:
13/615229
Inventors:
Darren Doud - Menlo Park CA,
Randolph E. Campbell - Menlo Park CA,
Signe Erickson - Menlo Park CA,
K. Angela MacFarlane - Menlo Park CA,
Mike Barrett - Menlo Park CA,
Christina Skieller - Menlo Park CA,
David Batten - Menlo Park CA,
Greg Stine - Menlo Park CA,
Douglas Sutton - Menlo Park CA,
Kathleen Cogan Farinas - Menlo Park CA,
International Classification:
A61M 5/46
A61F 9/00
US Classification:
604117
Abstract:
An injector apparatus comprises an elongate structure having one or more openings positionable near a penetrable barrier of an implantable device so as to receive fluid of the implantable device. The apparatus comprises a needle and a sheath extending over at least a portion of the needle. The elongate structure may comprise a distal tip to penetrate tissue and the penetrable barrier, and a distal opening near the tip to release therapeutic fluid into the implantable chamber. In many embodiments the distal tip, the distal opening, and the plurality of openings are separated from a stop that engages a tissue of the patient and limit penetration depth such that the distal opening and the plurality of openings are located along an axis of the implantable device to increase an efficiency of the exchange.

US Patent:
2012003, Feb 9, 2012
Filed:
Apr 18, 2011
Appl. No.:
13/089129
Inventors:
John A. Zepeda - Los Altos CA,
Jasper Jackson - Newark CA,
William R. Beasley - Los Altos CA,
Darren G. Doud - San Jose CA,
Brett A. Follmer - Santa Clara CA,
Assignee:
Neodyne Biosciences, Inc. - Menlo Park CA

A61F 15/00
US Classification:
602 53
Abstract:
Devices, kits and methods described herein may be for wound healing, including the treatment, amelioration, or prevention of scars and/or keloids by applying and/or maintaining a pre-determined strain in an elastic skin treatment device that is then affixed to the skin surface using skin adhesives to transfer a generally planar force from the bandage to the skin surface. Applicators are used to apply and/or maintain the strains, and some of the applicators are further configured to provide at least some mechanical advantage to the user when exerting loads onto the skin treatment device.

Methods And Devices For Cutting And Abrading Tissue

View page
US Patent:
2010031, Dec 9, 2010
Filed:
Apr 27, 2010
Appl. No.:
12/768281
Inventors:
John Robert Moberg - Elk River MN,
Alex Yang - San Francisco CA,
Christopher B. Brodeur - Plymouth MN,
William Joseph Whealon - Chaska MN,
Kee Lee - Newark CA,
Phyllis Yuen - Fremont CA,
Darren Doud - San Jose CA,
Assignee:
FOX HOLLOW TECHNOLOGIES, INC. - Plymouth MN
International Classification:
A61B 17/22
US Classification:
606159
Abstract:
The present invention provides an atherectomy catheter which has a cutting element that is able to cut both soft tissue and hard tissue, and methods of cutting material from a blood vessel lumen using a rotating cutting element. The cutting element has a sharp cutting edge that surrounds a cup-shaped surface and at least one surface of abrasive material. The cup-shaped surface directs the cut material into a tissue chamber. The cutting edge and the cup-shaped surface together are well suited to cut and remove relatively soft tissue from the blood vessel. The abrasive material surface in combination with the cutting element is well suited to abrade and remove hard material from the blood vessel.
