|1. (WO2018136845) MEDICAL PRODUCTS AND METHODS CONFIGURED FOR CONTROLLED RELEASE OF NITROUS OXIDE|
HO, Kwun Yin
|Title:||MEDICAL PRODUCTS AND METHODS CONFIGURED FOR CONTROLLED RELEASE OF NITROUS OXIDE|
The disclosure concerns various medical devices implemented to provide a nitric oxide rich environment for anti-microbial or anti-thrombogenic benefits. The medical device generally includes a nitric oxide donor material that is contained within a sealed cavity, and a transport medium that defines and captivates the entirety of the cavity, wherein the transport medium is permeable to both water and nitric oxide. As the nitric oxide donor material becomes saturated with water from the surrounding tissue or fluids, nitric oxide is chemically released, and the resulting nitric oxide is communicated through the transport medium to a treatment site for anti-microbial and anti-thrombogenic benefits.
