A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11918498B2) discloses a method for deploying a graft using a system that includes a catheter, guidewires, and outer sheaths. The method involves placing the catheter above a vasculature bifurcation, retracting the outer sheath to cannulate a branch of the bifurcation with a guidewire, and then expanding and deploying the stent or stent-graft using the outer sheath. The system may also include a slidable connector, stent securement component, and additional stent-grafts for deployment in the bifurcation branches.

Furthermore, the method includes steps such as advancing the catheter to reposition the guidewire, moving the delivery system towards the guidewire, and retracting the system from the vasculature. Additional components like a thread, slidable snare, and slidable sleeve are included in the system to facilitate the deployment process. The method aims to provide a precise and effective way of deploying grafts in vasculature bifurcations, ensuring proper positioning and securement of the stent or stent-graft within the branches. The patent highlights the importance of these techniques in improving outcomes for patients undergoing vascular interventions.
