A newly filed patent (Publication Number: US20240032907A1) describes a tissue fastener deployment system designed for inserting tissue fasteners into tissue safely and efficiently. The system includes a first tubular member with a fastener housing at the distal end for storing tissue fasteners, a push member for displacing the fasteners, and an indicator that shows whether an axial displacement force is applied to a fastener, indicating readiness for deployment into tissue. The indicator can provide visual or audible indications, and in some embodiments, includes a gauge or a display to show the number of fasteners deployed or remaining in the housing.

Furthermore, the patent outlines variations of the tissue fastener deployment system, such as indicators that signal the direction of the displacement force, whether a fastener has been deployed, or the safety of deploying a fastener. Some embodiments include indicators that generate feedback sounds or use lights to communicate information about the deployment process. Overall, the patent aims to improve the efficiency and safety of tissue fastener deployment by providing clear indicators and feedback mechanisms for healthcare professionals using the system.
