Title
(EN) TISSUE HEART VALVE HOLDER
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE MAINTIEN DE VALVULE CARDIAQUE EN TISSU
Abstract
(EN)
A tissue valve holder (10) for holding a tissue heart valve bioprosthesis (100) such that the tissue valve (100) may be supported without contacting any surface, regardless of whether or not the valve (100) is in a container (200). The tissue valve holder (10) includes a holder assembly (14) adapted to be secured to the tissue valve (100). The holder assembly (14) may include a holder body (18) and a removable disk (20). The holder assembly (14) and the tissue valve (100) secured thereto rest on a support structure (16). The support structure (16) may comprise a support surface and a plurality of support legs (36). The support surface, in turn, may comprise an annular ring (38) with the support legs (36) connected thereto. The holder assembly (14) rests on the support surface with the tissue valve (100) suspended in the center of the ring (38).

L'invention concerne un dispositif de maintien de valvule en tissu (10) qui permet de maintenir une bioprothèse de valvule cardiaque en tissu (100), laquelle peut alors être soutenue sans contact avec aucune surface. Peu importe si cette valvule (100) est dans un contenant (200). Le dispositif (10) comprend un ensemble de maintien (14) pouvant être fixé à la valvule (100). Cet ensemble (14) peut comporter un corps de maintien (18) et un disque amovible (20). L'ensemble considéré (14) et la valvule (100) fixée sur cet ensemble reposent sur une structure d'appui (16), laquelle peut comprendre une surface support et plusieurs montants de soutien (36). La surface support peut elle-même comporter un anneau (38) auquel sont rattachés les montants (36). L'ensemble de maintien (14) repose sur la surface support, et la valvule en tissu (100) est suspendue au centre de l'anneau (38).
