A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11752297B2) describes a packaging system for storing a deployable medical device in a sterilized environment. The packaging system includes a sealed container with at least one sealed seam and a tray placed inside the container. The tray has multiple chambers and rib portions, allowing for the storage of the medical device and a catheter assembly.

The tray consists of a first chamber near one end, a second chamber near the other end, and at least one additional chamber positioned between them. These chambers are in fluid communication with each other, allowing for the sterilizing fluid to flow throughout the tray. The tray also features rib portions with channels that connect the chambers, facilitating the movement of the sterilizing fluid.

The deployable medical device, made of tissue material, is engaged with the catheter assembly and stored in a partially deployed state within the first chamber of the tray. The sterilizing fluid present in the first chamber comes into contact with the medical device in its storage configuration, ensuring its sterilization. The other chambers in the tray also contain the sterilizing fluid.

Additional features of the packaging system include an attachment means at the second end of the tray for attaching a removable handle to the catheter assembly. This allows for easy handling and manipulation of the medical device during deployment. A device retaining member is attached to the tray to secure the medical device within the first chamber, while catheter retaining members are used to retain the catheter assembly relative to the tray.

The patent also describes a packaging tray specifically designed for storing the deployable medical device and catheter assembly. This tray includes the same chambers and rib portions as the packaging system, along with a recess at one end. The tray also features a device retaining member and a sheath retaining member, both with curved top and bottom surfaces, to securely hold the medical device and catheter assembly in place.

Overall, this patented packaging system and tray provide a sterilized environment for storing and deploying a medical device, ensuring its safety and effectiveness during medical procedures.
