A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11911257B2) discloses an implant delivery tube assembly designed for loading and delivering an implant. The assembly includes an outer tube and a telescopic capsule located at the distal end of the outer tube. The capsule comprises multiple segments that move telescopically, with the outer tube driving the movement. The design allows for precise control over the length of the capsule, ensuring efficient implant delivery.

Furthermore, the patent describes an implant delivery system incorporating the aforementioned delivery tube assembly. The system includes a control handle with a control component connected to the outer tube of the implant delivery tube assembly. This setup enables the axial movement of the outer tube with respect to the first tube assembly, controlling the telescopic movement of the capsule. The system also features a space for accommodating the implant between the first tube assembly and the capsule in the fully extended state, ensuring secure and accurate implant delivery.
