Title
(EN) MITRAL AND TRICUSPID VALVE REPAIR
(FR) REPARATION DE LA VALVULE BISCUPIDE ET DE LA VALVULE TRICUSPIDE
Abstract
(EN)
A novel approach to mitral or tricuspid valve repair involves the performance of an edge-to-edge fastening/securing of opposing heart valve leaflets through a catheter entering the heart. Thus, a device is introduced including a leaflet fastener applicator through a cardiac catheter or other suitable catheter. The leaflet fastener applicator and cardiac catheter can be formed into a kit. A gripper can be used to hold the heart valve leaflets while they are fastened.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une nouvelle technique de réparation de la valvule biscupide ou de la valvule tricuspide reposant sur la fixation/assujettissement bord à bord des valves opposées des valvules cardiaques à l'aide d'un cathéter introduit dans le coeur. On introduit, au moyen d'un cathéter cardiaque ou d'un autre cathéter adapté, un dispositif comprenant un mécanisme de fixation de valve. Le mécanisme de fixation de valve et le cathéter cardiaque peuvent constituer un kit. Il est également possible d'utiliser un organe de préhension pour maintenir les valves des valvules cardiaques durant leur assujettissement l'une à l'autre.
