|20140039478||SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR PERCUTANEOUS INTRAVASCULAR ACCESS FOR ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA - A device for extending, elongating, or repairing a previously created arteriovenous fistula between a first blood vessel and an adjacent second blood vessel includes a main body having a primary lumen and an articulating jaw member disposed at the distal end of the main body. The jaw member is configured with two elements to allow rotation of one element about a pivot point to grasp tissue while being rotated. The jaw member is also configured to allow thermal energy delivery to one or both elements of the jaw member that allow tissue welding and cutting with DC, RF, Laser or Ultrasonic energy. A second lumen located within one element of the jaw member is configured to allow advancement over a guidewire into the second vessel while the other element of the jaw member remains within the first blood vessel at the position where the arteriovenous fistula, or aperture, exists between the first and second blood vessel.||02-06-2014|
|20130281998||INTRAVASCULAR ARTERIAL TO VENOUS ANASTOMOSIS AND TISSUE WELDING CATHETER - A catheter-based device tracks over a guidewire which has been placed from a first blood vessel into a second blood vessel. The distal tip of the catheter is advanced into the second vessel while a proximal member remains in the first vessel. Matching blunt tapered surfaces on each of the distal tip and the proximal member are clamped together, with adjacent walls of each vessel between them, after which a known, controlled pressure is applied between the two surfaces. Heat energy is then applied to the blunt surfaces for approximately 1-30 seconds to weld the walls of the two vessels together. After coaptation of the vessel walls, the heat is increased to then cut through the vessel walls to create a fistula of the desired size.||10-24-2013|
|20130123827||SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR PERCUTANEOUS INTRAVASCULAR ACCESS AND GUIDEWIRE PLACEMENT - A device for allowing passage of a guidewire from a primary blood vessel to an adjacent secondary blood vessel includes a main body having a primary lumen and a secondary lumen, and a piercing member disposed in the secondary lumen, and configured to be moved distally out of the secondary lumen, and to pierce through tissue while being distally moved. A third lumen located within the piercing member is configured to allow placement of a guidewire from the primary blood vessel to the adjacent secondary blood vessel. In one embodiment, the secondary lumen is configured to allow articulation of the distal end of the piercing element. The piercing member has a sharp point on one end to facilitate cutting a small communicating aperture from the primary blood vessel to the secondary blood vessel.||05-16-2013|
|20110306993||SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR CREATING ARTERIOVENOUS (AV) FISTULAS - A system for creating an arteriovenous (AV) fistula comprises a vessel access sheath having a hollow interior and an exit port, a side access needle catheter configured to fit within the hollow interior of the sheath, a needle configured to be inserted into a blood vessel through the side access needle catheter, a toggle delivery catheter configured to fit within the hollow interior of the sheath, and a toggle apparatus configured to be delivered into a vessel through the toggle delivery catheter. The toggle apparatus comprises a shaft and a toggle member pivotably attached to a distal end of the shaft. A source of RF energy or resistive heat energy may be provided for application to the toggle member and/or to a heater insert in the toggle delivery catheter, for the purpose of creating the fistula.||12-15-2011|
|20110306959||INTRAVASCULAR ARTERIAL TO VENOUS ANASTOMOSIS AND TISSUE WELDING CATHETER - A device for creating an arteriovenous (AV) fistula comprises an elongate member, a distal member connected to the elongate member and movable relative to the elongate member, and a heating member disposed on at least one of the movable distal member and the elongate member. The distal member comprises structure for capturing tissue to be cut to create the fistula, and the heating member is adapted to cut through the tissue to create the fistula. The elongate member comprises an elongate outer tube. A shaft connects the distal member to the elongate member, and is extendable and retractable to extend and retract the distal member relative to the elongate member.||12-15-2011|
