Application: Marking device and implantation system (Patent ID: US20240065802A1)

The patent filed by Hologic Inc. describes a marking device for implantation into tissue, featuring a support structure made of elastic metal wire that can transition between compressed and expanded states. The device is designed to expand on its own, even against tissue pressure, forming a hollow, spherical shape when expanded. The support structure is composed of overlapping wires with first and second ends held together to create a curved central portion in the expanded state, enclosing an interior space.

Additionally, the support structure can be woven, braided, wound, or knitted, with end caps covering the first and second ends of the wires. These end caps can be laser welded or clamped onto the wires, with the option for different shapes and lengths for each cap. The expanded diameter of the support structure is less than 8 mm, while the compressed diameter is less than 3 mm. The device may also include a membrane filled with various substances, a material layer, and can be part of an implantation system with an implantation device for precise placement within tissue. The patent also covers variations in materials used for the wires and end caps, providing a versatile and customizable marking device for medical applications.
