The present embodiments provide a stent graft having a tubular configuration defining a lumen therethrough, the stent graft having a proximal section and a distal section. A folded section is positioned between the proximal section and the distal section. The folded section includes a first fold directed toward the distal end and engaged with the proximal section and a second fold directed toward the proximal end and engaged with the distal section. A valve arrangement is positioned in at least one of the first and second folds providing access from an exterior of the graft to the interior of the stent graft for insertion of an additional device.

A system for facilitating deployment of an endoluminal prosthesis may include a main tubular graft body including a proximal end opening, a distal end opening, a lumen, and a sidewall. A branch may extend from the sidewall and may include a first end opening, a second end opening, and a lumen. A fenestration may be disposed in the sidewall and positioned distal of the second end opening of the branch. A wire segment may include a proximal portion positioned proximal of the proximal end opening and a distal portion positioned distal of the distal end opening. The wire segment extend through the fenestration and through the lumen of the branch in a preloaded configuration.

An endovascular delivery system includes an endovascular prosthetic device (302) and a signal active guide wire (402) engaging the endovascular prosthetic device. A rotary encoder (704) is coupled with the guide wire and the endovascular prosthetic device to provide an encoder signal of the guide wire. The encoder signal is indicative of axial angular position of the endovascular prosthetic device (302) during implantation of the prosthetic device in a body of a patient.

An endovascular graft delivery system (300) includes an endovascular prosthetic device (302) and one or more trigger wires (316, 318) deployably engaging portions of the endovascular prosthesis device (302). An electrical element (330) is positioned at a proximal end of the trigger wire (316, 318). The electrical element (330) is in signal communication with the trigger wire (316, 318) to communicate operational signals over the trigger wire (316, 318). The operational signals may be power or control signals to assist with positioning the endovascular prosthetic device at a desired deployment location.

A bone anchor for use in attaching soft tissue to a bone is provided. The bone anchor comprises an anchor body extending between a proximal end and a distal end. The anchor body has an axial bore (14), a proximal threaded section (38) beginning at and extending distally from said proximal end, and a distal threaded section (40). The proximal threaded section has a first flute (39a) and a second flute (39b).

A bone anchor for use in anchoring one or more sutures comprises an anchor body (12) extending between a proximal end and a distal end. The anchor body (12) further comprises a longitudinal bore (30). A socket (22) is formed in a proximal portion of the longitudinal bore (30). The proximal end of the anchor body (12) is substantially flat so that when the bone anchor (12) is inserted into a bone the proximal end (14) is at or just below a surface of the bone.

A hand tool (1) having an opposing pair of longitudinally extending arms (3). The arms (3) hingedly connected together at a central point (4). The arms (3) having first ends (5) to be gripped by a user and second ends (6) having contact surfaces (10) to engage an object. The sensing means (9) operatively associated with said contact surfaces (10). Alarm means (15, 20, 23) operatively associated with the sensing means (9). The alarm means (15, 20, 23) are adapted to alert a user when a voltage is sensed by said sensing means (9).

An anchor for a safety line for use in roofing construction and maintenance activities. The anchor includes a hooked body having a shank and a point. A safety line is coupleable between a free end of the shank and a user. An anchor plate is rotatably and pivotably coupled to the point via a joint disposed therebetween. The anchor is disposable over a peak of a roof with the anchor plate on a first side of the roof and the body extending over the peak toward a second side. A user tethered to the anchor may work on the second side of the roof; pivotal and rotational movement of the body relative to the anchor plate enabled by the joint aids to maintain the body generally in line with the safety line while the anchor plate remains frictionally engaged with the first side of the roof.
