Recently filed patent applications of St. Jude Medical, Cardiology Division, Inc. in USPTO?

Publication number: US20210369123A1
Application number: 17/401,365

Abstract:
A system and method are provided to deploy an implant assembly in a vessel. The implant assembly comprises a pressure sensor having a body, and first and second anchoring members coupled to the body of the pressure sensor. A delivery apparatus comprises a shaft having proximal and distal ends, the shaft including a main lumen and a secondary lumen, the main lumen extending along at least a portion of the shaft. The secondary lumen extends along at least a portion of the length of the shaft, the secondary lumen joined with first and second ports provided in a sidewall of the shaft. A tether wire is configured to be slidably positioned within the secondary lumen, the tether wire having a distal portion configured to secure the implant assembly against the sidewall.

Publication number: US20220023594A1
Application number: 17/397,150

Abstract:
Catheter curve shape struts for steerable medical devices such as catheters are disclosed. These struts may not only help shape a steerable portion of a medical device (e.g., a distal portion of a catheter), but also may help to return a steered or deflected portion of the medical device to an uncurved configuration when it is no longer desirable or necessary to steer or deflect the medical device. These struts may include first and second pluralities of complementary, staggered cutout regions. When used in a catheter that is deployed via an introducer, at least some configurations of the catheter curve shape strut can enable the catheter to be rotated about its longitudinal axis, even when the distal deflectable section is in a curved configuration and inside of the introducer.

Publication number: US20220000549A1
Application number: 17/379,801

Abstract:
The invention relates to ablation catheter electrodes that solve in part the problem of tissue charring during radiofrequency ablation. The electrode assemblies of the invention include passageways that lead from the inner lumen of the assemblies to the surface of the assemblies, wherein the passageways have a smooth conjunction with the outer surface. These smooth conjunctions comprise rounded edges or are chamfered. In the case of rounded edges, the rounded edges can have fixed radii of about 0.002″ to about 0.008″.
