Background

Recruited from Stanford University, where he was chief of gastroenterology for five years, Dr. Pasricha is leading the establishment of the Johns Hopkins Center for Neurogastroenterology. Patients with motility disorders as well as diseases ranging from Parkinsons to Autism, and diabetes to obesity, stand to benefit from his research, which focuses on clinical disorders associated with gastroenterological motility, the biology of the enteric nervous system and visceral pain, neural stem cells and technology development associated with endoscopic research and advancements.

Over the course of his career, Dr. Pasricha has been credited with more than 30 patents for novel gastrointestinal diagnosis and treatment methods. His extensive publications on the enteric nervous system and gut-brain axis have garnered global attention.

Dr. Pasricha practices at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. He is also Professor of Innovation Management at the Johns Hopkins Carey School of Business.

Patents

Winged Biliary Stent
Patent # CA2182588 C | 04/18/2006

A stent, for example, for maintaining the patency of a duct such as a biliary duct, is provided that includes a plurality of radially extending wings. The wings project from a core which has guide wire or wire stylet lumen. Each of the wings preferably include a plurality of minute, longitudinally extending grooves for bile flow even in the event of tumor ingrowth. The core itself is preformed into a helical configuration.

Endoscopic Device For Relief of Cryo-spray
Patent # DE69827804 T2 | 11/10/2005

The present invention relates to a product and a process for rapid hemostasis or haemostasis and / or tissue ablation or - denudation in patients with gastrointestinal bleeding.

Endoscopic Cryospray Device
Patent # US5846235 A | 12/08/1998

A cryoprobe instrument for endoscopic use has been provided that permits the delivery of liquid or gaseous cryogens in the form of a spray. In an embodiment, the cryoprobe instrument includes an elongated, flexible tube having a fluid passage defined therethrough; a proximal connector portion provided at the proximal end of the tube for coupling the tube to a pressurized source of cryogenic refrigerant; and a nozzle tip mounted to the distal end of the tube. The nozzle tip has an outlet orifice constructed and arranged such that through the Joule-Thompson effect, cryogenic refrigerant exiting through the outlet orifice rapidly and substantially expands and cools.

Endoscopic Cryospray Device
Patent # WO1998046148 A1 | 10/22/1998

A cryoprobe instrument (10) for endoscopic use has been provided that permits the delivery of liquid or gaseous cryogen in the form of a spray. In an embodiment, the cryoprobe instrument (10) includes an elongated, flexible tube (12) having a fluid passage defined therethrough; a proximal connector portion (18) provided at the proximal end of the tube for coupling the tube to a pressurized source of cryogenic refrigerant (122); and a nozzle tip (38) mounted to the distal end of the tube (12). The nozzle tip (38) has an outlet orifice (40) constructed and arranged such that through the Joule-Thompson effect, cryogenic refrigerant exiting through the outlet orifice (40) rapidly and substantially expands and cools.

Winged Biliary Stent
Patent # US5776160 A | 07/07/1998

A stent, for example for maintaining the patency of a duct such as a biliary duct, is provided that includes a plurality of radially extending wings. The wings project from a core which has a guide wire or wire stylet lumen. Each of the wings preferably includes a plurality of minute, longitudinally extending grooves for bile flow even in the event of tumor ingrowth. Advantageously the core itself is preformed into a helical configuration.

Device For Treating Gastrointestinal Muscle Disorders And Other Smooth Muscle Dysfunction
Patent # US5674205 A | 10/07/1997

Direct injection of sphincteric botulinum toxin is disclosed as an effective, safe and simple method of treatment for disorders of gastrointestinal muscle or smooth muscles elsewhere in the body, with results that appear to be sustained for several months. Muscle disorders which are suitable for such treatment include achalasia, isolated disorders of the lower esophageal sphincter, gastroparesis, hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, sphincter of Oddi dysfunction, short-segment Hirschsprung's, anal fissure, hemorrhoids, proctalgia fugax, irritable bowel syndrome, disorders of the upper esophageal sphincter, vasospastic disorders, and disorders of uterine and bladder spasm. Devices suitable for delivering this therapy are also disclosed.
