Application: Vaso-occlusive devices and methods for making and using same (Patent ID: US20230329720A1)

The patent filed by Stryker Corp describes a vaso-occlusive coil made of wire that can transition between a primary constrained configuration and a secondary relaxed configuration. The coil includes a primary portion with multiple loops, including a distal anchoring loop in a triangular shape that is smaller than the distal-most primary loop. This anchoring loop prevents herniation of the device during deployment and retention within an anatomical cavity.

The claims of the patent detail various aspects of the vaso-occlusive device, including the formation of a pyramidal portion from the primary loops, the connection of primary loops through transition segments, and the presence of a body portion extending from the pyramidal portion. Additionally, the claims specify the shape, size, and positioning of the distal anchoring loop, as well as the potential inclusion of a second distal anchoring loop. The patent also covers the use of shape memory materials for the wire and the setting of the secondary configuration through winding and heat treatment.
