|20120150092||GUIDED PERCUTANEOUS BYPASS - The invention includes methods and apparatus to deploy a blood vessel conduit via a catheter-based, percutaneous approach. In particular, a prosthetic blood conduit can be introduced around or through an arterial obstruction without requiring open bypass surgery. The technology includes coupling devices for docking the tips of two catheters, one situated inside a blood vessel, the other situated outside the blood vessel wall.||06-14-2012|
|20100189712||Preparation And Use Of Cell-Synthesized Threads - The present technology provides for a cell-synthesized biological thread, processes for making a cell-synthesized thread, and an apparatus for carrying out a process used to engineer the cell-synthesized thread. The thread is produced from living cells in culture and can be grown around the outer surface of a cylindrical bioreactor. The tissue comprising the thread has mechanical and biological properties achieved by altering the climactic conditions, stresses and strains on the tissue and chemical composition that prove beneficial in the medical industry. This process results in a biological thread that has high mechanical strength, decreased immunogenic effect and decreased thrombogenic effect when combined with other tissue. It also results in a product which can be used to create more complex constructs that otherwise could not have been generated. The threads can be used to make sutures, patches, and tubes, for example.||07-29-2010|
|20100040663||Arterial Implants - The technology described herein generally relates to the field of tissue engineering and treatment of cardiovascular disease by endovascular repair. The technology more particularly relates to devices and methods to produce a tissue-based implant that can be used for abdominal aorta aneurysm, thoracic aorta aneurysm, or other cardiovascular repair.||02-18-2010|
|20090233356||Tissue Engineered Cellular Sheets, Methods of Making and Use Thereof - The disclosure provides methods and compositions to build living tissue covered stents and the like. These tissue coated stents provide a barrier against cell migration to the lumen of the vessel. Since the tissue can surround and envelope the stent, foreign body responses to the stent material are reduced and delayed. The tissue coating is also relatively impermeable to transmural flow, so the wrapped stent can act as a bypass vessel. The tissue is also robust enough to act as a stand alone vessel, without requiring the presence of the metallic stent. These stents can be endothelialized to reduce thrombosis. The genetic modifications described in this disclosure allow for functional organs to be built that express agents that are anti-restenotic or anti-thrombogenic.||09-17-2009|
