Patent
Bard Peripheral Vascular Inc. and BARD SHANNON Ltd | Date: 2016-12-16

A marking apparatus includes a rigid cannula having a peripheral wall forming a lumen that carries an imaging marker. A lateral opening in the peripheral wall is open to the lumen. The lateral opening has a proximal extent and a distal extent. A closed-off distal portion is distal to the lateral opening. A resilient end wall extends downwardly from the peripheral wall at the distal extent of the lateral opening. A stylet has a distal end having a ramp. The stylet is slidably received within the lumen of the rigid cannula for movement in the lumen. The resilient end wall of the rigid cannula is configured to engage the ramp of the distal end of the stylet when the stylet is advanced through the lumen of the rigid cannula to an extended position to substantially close off the lateral opening of the rigid cannula.

A tissue handling system includes a biopsy device configured to deliver at least one tissue sample to a location outside the body of a patient. A tissue storage container is separate from the biopsy device. A tissue collecting device is configured to releasably engage the biopsy device to receive the at least one tissue sample from the biopsy device. The tissue collecting device is configured to be disengaged from the biopsy device and engaged with the tissue storage container to deliver the at least one tissue sample to the tissue storage container.

A marking apparatus includes a rigid cannula having a peripheral wall forming a lumen that carries an imaging marker, a proximal end coupled to a handle, a lateral opening in the peripheral wall that is open to the lumen, and a closed-off distal portion having a ramp adjacent the lumen. The closed-off distal portion extends distally from the ramp to terminate at a tissue piercing pointed tip. The ramp of the rigid cannula is curved to transition from the peripheral wall of the rigid cannula to the lateral opening of the rigid cannula. The ramp of the rigid cannula is adapted to engage the distal end of the stylet as the stylet is advanced through the lumen of the rigid cannula to guide the distal end of the stylet to a position to substantially close off the lateral opening of the rigid cannula having the tissue piercing tip.

A non-compliant medical balloon, where the non-compliant medical balloon may be changed from a deflated state to an inflated state by increasing pressure within the balloon, is made with a first fiber layer, a second fiber layer over said first fiber layer such that the fibers of the first fiber layer and the fibers of the second fiber layer form an angle and a binding layer coating the first fiber layer and said second fiber layer. The interior surface area of the non-compliant medical balloon remains unchanged when the balloon changes from a deflated state to an inflated state

A held biopsy device includes a sample-receiving device with a cavity configured to receive at least one tissue sample. The sample-receiving device is movable between a first position and a second position. A liquid supply unit is configured to supply a flushing liquid. The liquid supply unit is operatively connected to the cavity of the sample-receiving device when the sample-receiving device is in the second position, and the liquid supply unit is disconnected from the cavity of the sample-receiving device when the sample-receiving device is not in the second position.

A non-compliant medical balloon may be changed from a deflated state to an inflated state by increasing pressure within the balloon. The non-compliant medical balloon is composed of a woven fabric layer composed of at least two woven fabric fibers forming an angle. The angle remains substantially unchanged when the balloon changes from a deflated state to an inflated state.

A semi-compliant fiber-reinforced medical balloon having a folded wall thickness of from about 0.0010 to about 0.0060 inches and a rated burst pressure of at least 15 atmospheres and exhibiting compliance in the radial direction of from 0.5% expansion per atmosphere to about 1.0% expansion per atmosphere when pressurized from a fully inflated diameter to the rated burst pressure of the balloon includes a base balloon formed from a semi-elastic polymer material having an elongation to break of from about 10% to about 20%, a fiber layer is disposed over the base balloon with fibers having an elongation to break of from about 10% to about 20% and an outer layer formed from a semi-elastic polymer material having an elongation to break of from about 10% to about 20% disposed over the fiber layer.

A biopsy device for harvesting at least one tissue sample from a body of a living being comprises a hollow needle (110) with an end portion adapted to be introduced into the body, and a cutting mechanism for severing the tissue sample. A sample-receiving device is provided for receiving the severed tissue sample, the sample-receiving device being receivable in the hollow needle and movable therein between an extended position and a retracted position. The biopsy device further includes a tissue sample-collecting device (104; 204) comprising at least one tissue-retaining cavity, and an ejector system for ejecting the tissue sample from the tissue sample-receiving device into one of the tissue-retaining cavities. An inspection system (178) allows an operator of the biopsy device to visually inspect the ejected tissue sample, while the hollow needle remains in the body. The sample- collecting device (104; 204) may include a drum, which is rotatable relative to the sample- receiving device such that different tissue samples harvested at different times can be accommodated in seaparate ones of the tissue-retaining cavities.

A catheter includes a balloon and a shaft having a coaxial portion including an outer tubular member having a bore, a transition neck, an access fitting adjacent the proximate end of the catheter shaft for directing a guidewire into the catheter shaft, an inflation port, a guidewire tubular member disposed coaxially in the outer tubular member, the outer tubular member and guidewire tubular member defining a first, annular inflation/deflation lumen fluid communication with the inflation port, at least one second inflation/deflation lumen separate from and non-coaxial with the guidewire tubular member and having a cross-sectional area less than the cross-sectional area of the first inflation/deflation lumen and opening at a proximate end into the first inflation/deflation lumen and at the distal end of the transition neck.

A non-compliant fiber-reinforced medical balloon comprises a first fiber layer and a second fiber layer embedded in a continuous matrix of thermally-weldable polymer material defining a barrel wall, cone walls and neck walls. The fibers of the first fiber layer have a pattern of different lengths and are divisible into a first group and a second group based on length. The length of the fibers of the second group varies progressively in accordance to their proximity to the fibers of the first group; the fibers of the second group closest to the fibers of the first group being longer than the fibers of the second group further from the fibers of the first group. The fiber of the second fiber layer winds circumferentially around the longitudinal axis of the balloon substantially over the entire length of the balloon.
