Title (EN) PREVENTION OF MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION INDUCED VENTRICULAR EXPANSION AND REMODELING
(FR) PREVENTION D'INFARCTUS MYOCARDIQUE INDUITE PAR UNE EXPANSION ET UN REMODELAGE VENTRICULAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) A method for direct therapeutic treatment of myocardial tissue in a localized region of a heart having a pathological condition. The method includes identifying a target region of the myocardium and applying material directly and substantially only to at least a portion of the myocardial tissue of the target region. The material applied results in a physically modification the mechanical properties, including stiffness, of said tissue. Various devices and modes of practicing the method are disclosed for stiffening, restraining and constraining myocardial tissue for the treatment of conditions including myocardial infarction or mitral valve regurgitation.
(FR) L'invention concerne un traitement thérapeutique direct d'un tissu myocardique dans une région localisée du coeur présentant un état pathologique. Une méthode consiste à identifier une région cible du myocarde et à appliquer un matériau directement et sensiblement uniquement sur une partie du tissu myocardique de la région cible. Le matériau appliqué entraîne une modification physique des propriétés mécaniques notamment de la rigidité du tissu. L'invention concerne également différents dispositifs et modes de pratique de ladite méthode permettant de raidir, de restreindre et de contraindre le tissu myocardique afin de traiter des états tels que l'infarctus myocardique et la régurgitation mitrale.
