Apparatus and methods for tissue anchoring of medical devices
An apparatus for tissue anchoring of a medical device includes a retention member and an elastic member secured between ends of the retention member. The retention member, being transformable along a longitudinal axis of the apparatus, is held by a spring bias of the elastic member in a first, gripping state; and, when opposing forces compress the elastic member, the retention member is transformed to a second, open state.
A bristle device for delivery into a body lumen comprises a longitudinally extending stem 1 and a plurality of bristles extending generally outwardly from the stem for anchoring the device in a body lumen. There may be at least two bristle segments and in some cases there are flexible sections between the segments.

Traffic flow redirection between border routers using routing encapsulation
In response to receiving one or more packets from an interface, an anchoring border router classifies the traffic flow and either transmits the packets based upon the routing control table as usual, or determines that the packets of the traffic flow are to be forwarded to a forwarding border router. Upon determining that the packets are to be forwarded, the packets are encapsulated with a routing encapsulation key corresponding to a routing path and are forwarded from the anchoring border router to the forwarding border router via a routing encapsulation tunnel.
