|20140277062||MEDICAL BALLOON HAVING TAPERED OR STEPPED PROFILE - A medical balloon that may be inflated and deflated includes a barrel wall having a large diameter proximal end and a small diameter distal end, the barrel wall being disposed between proximal and distal tapered cone walls, each having proximal and distal ends, and proximal and distal cylindrical neck walls extending therefrom along a longitudinal axis and wherein the barrel wall is continuously tapered inwardly toward a longitudinal axis of the balloon from the large diameter proximal end of the barrel wall to the small diameter distal end of the barrel wall.||09-18-2014|
|20120203173||COAXIAL CATHETER SHAFT HAVING BALLOON ATTACHMENT FEATURE WITH AXIAL FLUID PATH - A catheter shaft for a balloon dilation catheter to be utilized with a guidewire includes an outer tubular member having a bore, a proximal end and a distal end with a guidewire tubular member coaxially disposed within the bore such that the inner surface of the outer tubular member and the outer surface of the guidewire tubular member define an annular inflation/deflation lumen extending between the proximal end of the shaft and the distal end of the outer tubular member with a plurality of discrete, spaced apart legs extending radially outward from the guidewire tubular member that serve as a stop or stops preventing movement of the guidewire tubular member into the outer tubular member when the legs abut the distal end of the outer tubular member.||08-09-2012|
|20110054513||NON-COMPLIANT MEDICAL BALLOON HAVING AN INTEGRAL NON-WOVEN FABRIC LAYER - 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 matted fabric layer composed of at least two matted fabric fibers forming an angle. The angle remains substantially unchanged when the balloon changes from a deflated state to an inflated state.||03-03-2011|
|20100234802||NON-COMPLIANT MEDICAL BALLOON HAVING AN INTEGRAL NON-WOVEN FABRIC LAYER - 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 matted fabric layer composed of at least two matted fabric fibers forming an angle. The angle remains substantially unchanged when the balloon changes from a deflated state to an inflated state.||09-16-2010|
|20100185145||BALLOON DILATION CATHETER SHAFT HAVING END TRANSITION - A balloon dilation catheter includes a dilation balloon and a shaft having a coaxial portion including an outer tubular member having a bore, a proximate end and a distal end and a transition neck formed at the distal end of the coaxial portion, the transition neck having a proximate end at the distal end of the outer tubular member and a distal end, an access fitting adjacent the proximate end of the catheter shaft for directing a guidewire into the catheter shaft, an inflation port for directing an incompressible inflation medium into the catheter shaft, a guidewire tubular member disposed coaxially in the outer tubular member and extending continuously through the outer tubular member to the distal end of the outer tubular member and through the transition neck, the outer tubular member and guidewire tubular member defining a first, annular inflation/deflation lumen therebetween in fluid communication with the inflation port, at least one second inflation/deflation lumen formed through the transition neck, the 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 whereby the second inflation/deflation lumen provides fluid communication from the first inflation/deflation lumen through the transition neck such that inflation fluid passing through the first inflation lumen may flow though the second inflation/deflation lumen and directly into the dilation balloon.||07-22-2010|
|20090294031||NON-COMPLIANT MEDICAL BALLOON - 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 run substantially parallel to one another and substantially parallel to the longitudinal axis. 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. Each fiber of the first group begins in the neck wall at one end of the balloon, extends continuously in the longitudinal direction and terminates in the neck wall at the opposite end of the balloon. Substantially all of the fibers of the first group have a generally uniform length. Each fiber of the second group begins in the cone wall at one end of the balloon, extends continuously in the longitudinal direction and terminates in the cone wall at the opposite end of the balloon. 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 including the neck walls, the cone walls and the barrel wall.||12-03-2009|
|20090247947||RAPID EXCHANGE BALLOON DILATION CATHETER HAVING REINFORCED MULTI-LUMEN DISTAL PORTION - A rapid exchange balloon dilation catheter includes a catheter shaft with a proximal tubular member defining a proximal inflation/deflation lumen for conveying fluids therethrough with a distal portion of the bore of proximal tubular member filled with a fluid-impervious barrier, a distal body extending from the fluid-impervious barrier to the distal end of the shaft, a plurality of distal tubular members defining distal inflation/deflation lumens in fluid communication with the proximal inflation/deflation lumen and extending through the fluid-impervious barrier and the distal body to the distal end of the shaft distal portion, a guidewire tubular member having a bore extending from a side aperture formed in the distal body through the distal body alongside the distal tubular members in a multi-lumen arrangement, and a plurality of stiffening members extending from within the fluid-impervious barrier into the distal body to a point within the shaft distal portion.||10-01-2009|
|20090171277||BALLOON DILATION CATHETER HAVING TRANSITION FROM COAXIAL LUMENS TO NON-COAXIAL MULTIPLE LUMENS - A shaft for a balloon dilation catheter comprises a proximal portion wherein a guidewire tubular member is disposed coaxially within an outer tubular member, a shaft transitional portion, wherein the guidewire member is disposed within the outer member, with at least one distal tubular member not present in the proximal portion, a shaft distal portion, wherein the guidewire member and the distal members are disposed side-by-side and encased within a distal body, and fluid-tight barrier within a proximal lumen blocking the flow of fluid in the proximal lumen, but allowing the proximal lumen to remain in fluid communication with a distal lumens.||07-02-2009|
