The present invention is directed to shield apparatuses configured to hold syringe assemblies in a manner that preserves their ease of use and convenience. In some embodiments, the syringe assemblies are detachable, and the shield apparatuses provide for convenient interchanging of the needle assemblies, as well as methods for administering injections to a patient.

The present invention is directed to a dual diameter guide wire that is steerable inside the lumen of a patient, and provides greater ability to access small areas such as the interior of a needle, or the interior of a patients lumen such as small blood vessels, thereby improving access to a patients body during interventional procedures. The present invention is also directed to medical devices for interventional applications, methods of accessing the interior of a lumen of a patients body and methods of preparing a guide wire.

A medical catheter for inserting into a body includes a bump tubing section with proximal and distal ends, wherein the proximal end is configured to mate with a hub. The bump tubing section has an intermediate portion extending away from the proximal end with a substantially constant outer diameter and thickness, and a taper portion adjacent the distal end with generally decreasing inside and outside diameters to provide a gradually increasing flexibility toward the distal end of the bump tubing section. The bump tubing section is comprised of a polymer having a predetermined flexural modulus. A tip section is disposed distally of the distal end of the bump tubing section comprising a distal liner and a distal cover such that at least a majority of the tip section has a substantially constant stiffness and a flexural modulus substantially equal to or greater than the predetermined flexural modulus.

The present invention is directed to kits comprising syringe assemblies having detachable needle assemblies, as well as shield apparatuses to protect the needle assemblies. The syringe assemblies are configured to minimize the dead space after deployment of the syringe and injection of the material in the syringe into a patients body, as well as to include detachable needle assemblies, such that different needle assemblies can be interchanged on a single syringe barrel.

The present technology is directed to a dilator centering device and assemblies and methods using same. In particular, a dilator centering device in accordance with the disclosed technology can be used with a sheath hub assembly. In one embodiment, a dilator centering device includes a lumen capable of receiving a dilator shaft and centering a dilator shaft with respect to the sheath hub as the dilator shaft enters the sheath hub. In one embodiment, the dilator centering device can be attached to the sheath hub during manufacturing or it can be attached at the use site. In one embodiment, the dilator centering device can be integrated with and non-removable from the sheath hub. The embodiments disclosed herein are illustrative and do not limit the scope and spirit of the disclosed technology.

The present invention relates to a dilator (30). The dilator includes a shaft (32), a lumen (41) and a hub (43). The shaft has at least two stiffness sections with the stiffness sections becoming less rigid as they approach a distal end of the shaft. The varying stiffness sections allow the dilator to track along the guidewire through torturous vasculature so as the dilator is advanced and the stiffness is changed, the stiffer sheath can advance smoothly through a blood vessel. The dilator may also taper at the distal tip to stretch the initial skin puncture hole larger to accommodate the dilator shaft and ease the sheath tip insertion through to the vasculature. Or the shaft may taper from where it extends beyond the sheath distal tip to the distal end so that it can reach further distal in the vasculature. The dilator may also include an atraumatic tip for easier advancement of the dilator. The dilator distal end may also include one or more radiopaque markers and a shaped distal end.
