Teleflex | Date: 2017-02-07

The present disclosure relates to a mechanical thrombectomy device that includes a catheter assembly with a basket assembly formed of a proximal hub and a distal hub; a flexible tube having a first end attached to the proximal hub and a second end attached to the distal hub; and a plurality of basket wires. The flexible tube may be laser-cut to allow for bending, elongation, and compression. The basket wires each have a first end attached to the proximal hub and a second end attached to the distal hub. The basket wires are disposed around the flexible tube and configured to expand to a preset shape. The basket assembly is attached to a distal end of a rotatable shaft. A drive assembly is configured to rotate the rotatable shaft to rotate the basket assembly. The basket assembly when rotated is configured to macerate a material proximate to the basket assembly.


The present application describes a safety needle device. The safety needle device includes a housing with a needle and stylet located therein. The needle includes an elongate needle portion with a distal tip. The stylet includes an elongate stylet portion with a distal tip. The safety needle device also includes a compression spring and a sliding member coupled to the needle. The present application also describes a method of navigating a safety needle device toward a point.

A syringe includes a barrel having an internal surface defining an internal bore therein, and a plunger disposed within the internal bore of the barrel. A distal end of the plunger is inserted into a proximal end of the barrel. At least one radial projection is disposed on an external surface of the plunger, the at least one radial projection includes a proximal ramp and a distal ramp. The distal ramp includes a first point being a point of incipient contact with the internal surface of the barrel, and the at least one radial projection has a first slope relative to the longitudinal axis at the first point. The at least one radial projection has a second slope at a second point along the proximal ramp. An absolute value of the first slope is different from an absolute value of the second slope.

A surgical instrument probe or electrode including an elongated shaft with a rod having an end effector on a distal end of the elongated shaft, a sealing means, and a pencil hub on a proximal end of the elongated shaft. The end effector on the distal end of the elongated shaft may be a hook or a spatula, and the rod may be attached to an electrosurgical energy source to enable the end effector to perform a cauterizing function. The rod may be between about 100 mm to about 400 mm, and include a diameter of less than about 3 mm.


A valve apparatus includes a body including a first wall and a second wall, a chamber defined within the body, a valve member positioned in the chamber, a first conduit defined within the body to extend through the first wall and configured to be in fluid communication with the chamber and a source of fluid, a second conduit defined within the body to extend through the first wall and configured to be in fluid communication with the chamber and a source of vacuum pressure, and an actuator operatively connected to an end of the valve member extending through the body from the chamber. The actuator may position the valve member within the chamber to selectively form a first flow path with the first conduit that extends through the chamber and the second wall, and a second flow path with the second conduit that extends through chamber and the second wall.


The present application describes a urine sensing probe and a system for detecting urine. The urine sensing probe includes a needle having a tubular portion and one or more optical fibers positioned within the needle. The one or more optical fibers have a distal surface that is oriented towards a beveled distal section of the needle and is oriented to one of its lateral sides. The distal surface of the one or more optical fibers ranges from about 90 to a critical angle with respect to a vertical axis of the needle. The present application also describes a system for sensing urine including a urine sensing probe.
