Title
(EN) DEVICE AND METHOD FOR RESTRUCTURING HEART CHAMBER GEOMETRY
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCEDE DE RECONSTRUCTION DE LA GEOMETRIE D'UNE CAVITE CARDIAQUE
Abstract
(EN) A geometric reconfiguration assembly for the natural heart having a collar configured for surrounding the natural heart. The collar can include a plurality of supports configured for positioning on the epicardial surface of the heart. Supports can be joined with connectors that can permit or provide slight deformation of the assembly. An external shell or skin portion can be provided around the supports and/or connectors.
(FR) L'invention concerne un ensemble de reconfiguration géométrique destiné à un coeur naturel qui est pourvu d'un collier conçu pour l'entourer. Le collier peut comprendre plusieurs supports conçus pour être posés à la surface épicardiaque du coeur. Les supports peuvent être regroupés au moyen de raccords qui permettent à l'ensemble de se déformer légèrement. Les supports et/ou les raccords peuvent être munis d'une partie externe sous forme de coque ou de peau.
