A newly filed patent (Publication Number: US20230381005A1) describes a system for the delivery of an endoluminal prosthesis, consisting of a delivery catheter and the prosthesis itself. The delivery catheter includes a catheter tip, shaft, and handle for prosthesis deployment, while the prosthesis features a hollow-cylindrical main body with openings and a main lumen. A wire preloaded within the prosthesis extends through the main lumen to the handle, where it is coiled onto a spool for controlled deployment.

The system, as outlined in the patent claims, can be used with various types of prostheses such as stents, grafts, or stent grafts. Additionally, the prosthesis may include fenestrations or side branches, with the preloaded wire extending through these features for precise positioning. The handle of the system includes multiple spools for accommodating multiple wires, allowing for complex procedures involving multiple side branches. The spools and retainers on the handle are detachable, providing flexibility in operation, and each wire is equipped with a seal for added security during deployment.
