|20110071435||Method and System for Coupling an Extension Wire to a Guidewire - A method and a system using a helicoidal structure wound out of a plurality of metallic wires into a universal connector for reversibly coupling a distal end portion of an extension wire to a proximal end portion of a guide wire. The universal connector is configured for receiving the proximal end portion of the guide wire into the connector lumen and is made as a single-piece unit built to sustain increased separation forces tending to disconnect the extension wire from the guide wire. The universal connector accommodates coupling to different configurations of commercially available guide wire proximal terminations.||03-24-2011|
|20110009889||BLOOD VESSEL OCCLUSION AUGER - A blood occlusion auger having an in vivo distal auger tool coupled in operative association with an ex vivo auger control for opening and traversing occlusions in a blood vessel The auger control allows the selection of predetermined threshold forces and step-lengths values and operates in successive repetition of identical sequential stages, to traverse occlusions. Once disposed adjacent an occlusion, the auger tool, commanded by the auger control, operates in two states, first to radially dilate the vessel and second to penetrate distally into a furrow.||01-13-2011|
