Stent Delivery System

US Patent:
6527789, Mar 4, 2003
Filed:
May 14, 1999
Appl. No.:
09/312428
Inventors:
Lilip Lau - Cupertino CA
William M. Hartigan - Fremont CA
Farhad Khosravi - Boston MA
Kurt R. Klemm - Santa Clara CA
Ulrich Sigwart - Morges,
Assignee:
Advanced Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. - Santa Clara CA
International Classification:
A61M 2900
US Classification:
606194
Abstract:
A stent delivery assembly includes a catheter for carrying an intravascular stent for use in a body lumen. The catheter assembly includes a rapid exchange feature in which a proximal port is spaced a relatively short distance form the distal end of the catheter and a relatively long distance from the proximal end of the catheter. A stent is mounted on the expandable member or balloon portion of the catheter.

Method Of Delivering A Stent

US Patent:
6113607, Sep 5, 2000
Filed:
Jul 20, 1998
Appl. No.:
9/119344
Inventors:
Lilip Lau - Sunnyvale CA
William M. Hartigan - Fremont CA
Farhad Khosravi - Boston MA
Kurt R. Klemm - Santa Clara CA
Ulrich Sigwart - Morges,
Assignee:
Advanced Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. - Santa Clara CA
International Classification:
A61F 1100
US Classification:
606108
Abstract:
The invention is directed to a stent delivery method and system which generally includes an elongated delivery sheath and a catheter disposed within an outer lumen of the sheath having an expandable member on its distal extremity. An expandable stent is mounted on the expandable member of the catheter. The distal portion of the sheath tapers down and is tucked within an elastic cone during transport of the stent to a stenotic region. A manipulating device is provided on the proximal end of the delivery system to effect relative axial movement between the sheath and the catheter so as to expose the stent mounted on the expandable member on the catheter within a body lumen such as a coronary artery and allow the expansion of the stent by the expansion of the expandable member. The elastic cone thereby disengages from the sheath and collapses about the distal end of the catheter. The delivery sheath has a first port in its distal end and a second port in the sheath wall proximally disposed from the distal end of the sheath.

Intravascular Catheter With A Nontraumatic Distal Tip

US Patent:
5234416, Aug 10, 1993
Filed:
Jun 6, 1991
Appl. No.:
7/711045
Inventors:
Patrick E. Macaulay - Cupertino CA
Lawrence D. Wasicek - Sunnyvale CA
Alfredo Bayot - Newark CA
Kurt Klemm - Santa Clara CA
Assignee:
Advanced Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. - Santa Clara CA
International Classification:
A61M 2500
US Classification:
604282
Abstract:
An intravascular catheter such as a guiding catheter of composite construction having a nontraumatic distal tip comprising a proximal elastomeric tubular element and a distal elastomeric tubular element formed of softer material that the proximal section. The proximal tubular section of the distal tip preferably has a radiopaque material incorporated therein to enable the distal tip to be fluoroscopically observable when in place within a patient. The shaft of the catheter, which exhibits excellent torquability and pushability, is formed with a very thin wall. The catheter shaft includes an inner tubular member of braided polymeric fibrous strands impregnated with a thermoset polyurethane and having an outer jacket or coating of thermoplastic polyurethane secured to the braided tubular member. In some embodiments it is preferred to include a lubricous liner within the braided tubular member.

Stent Delivery System

US Patent:
5782855, Jul 21, 1998
Filed:

Stent Delivery System

US Patent:
5458615, Oct 17, 1995
Filed:
Aug 6, 1993
Appl. No.:
8/103402
Inventors:
Kurt R. Klemm - Santa Clara CA
Lilip Lau - Sunnyvale CA
William M. Hartigan - Fremont CA
Farhad Khosravi - Boston MA
Michael S. Williams - Chapel Hill NC
Rainier Beitelia - San Jose CA
Assignee:
Advanced Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. - Santa Clara CA
International Classification:
A61M 2900
US Classification:
606198
Abstract:
The invention is directed to a stent delivery method and system which generally includes an elongated delivery sheath and a catheter disposed within an outer lumen of the sheath having an expandable member on its distal extremity. An expandable stent is mounted on the expandable member of the catheter. The distal portion of the sheath tapers down and is tucked within an elastic cone during transport of the stent to a damaged region. A manipulating device is provided on the proximal end of the delivery system to effect relative axial movement between the sheath and the catheter so as to expose the stent mounted on the expandable member on the catheter within a body lumen such as a coronary artery and allow the expansion of the stent by the expansion of the expandable member. The elastic cone thereby disengages from the sheath and collapses about the distal end of the catheter. An inner lumen extends within the catheter and slidably receives a guiding member such as a guidewire.

Rapid Exchange Delivery System For Stenting A Body Lumen

US Patent:
5993460, Nov 30, 1999
Filed:
Mar 27, 1998
Appl. No.:
9/049309
Inventors:
Rainier Beitelia - San Jose CA
Kurt R. Klemm - Santa Clara CA
Assignee:
Advanced Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. - Santa Clara CA
International Classification:
A61M 2510
US Classification:
606108
Abstract:
A rapid exchange catheter system provides a delivery vehicle to carry a stent through a patient's vasculature and deploy the stent after a protective sheath covering the stent has been withdrawn. In order to facilitate the rapid exchange of catheters and specifically the backloading of a catheter onto the proximal end of a guide wire, the catheter includes telescoping sleeves within the guide wire lumen that translate relative to each other as the sheath is retracted to expose the stent. The telescoping sleeves align the catheter and the sheath when the catheter is backloaded onto the distal extremity of the guide wire by aligning the guide wire notch of the catheter with an opening in the sheath thus providing a continuous guide wire passageway.
