Title (EN) MECHANICAL HEART VALVE PROSTHESIS WITH IMPROVED OCCLUDING KINEMATICS
(FR) VALVULE CARDIAQUE PROTHETIQUE MECANIQUE PRESENTANT UNE CINEMATIQUE D'OCCLUSION AMELIOREE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to an improved mechanical heart valve prosthesis, more particular to a prosthetic valve working according to physiologic kinematics, i.e. the leaflets of those valves open centrally as native valves do. The occluders (521, 522) of the invented valve design are equipped with so called 'winglets' (561, 562), i.e. the peripheral corners of the trailing edges (541, 542) of the leaflets show a distinct curvature, which for the leaflets in opened position is located in a plane perpendicular to the main axis (flow direction) of the valve.
(FR)L'invention concerne une prothèse de valvule cardiaque mécanique améliorée, et plus particulièrement une valvule prothétique fonctionnant conformément à la cinématique physiologique, c'est-à-dire que les valves de ces valvules s'ouvrent par le centre de la même manière que les valvules naturelles. Les organes d'occlusion (521, 522) du modèle de valvule décrit sont équipés d' « ailettes » (561, 562), ce qui veut dire que les angles périphériques des bords (541, 542) arrières de valves présentent une courbure distincte située, lorsque les valves se trouvent en position ouverte, dans un plan perpendiculaire à l'axe principal (direction d'écoulement ) de la valvule.
