Title (EN) FLEXIBLE, NON-PLANAR ANNULOPLASTY RINGS
(FR) ANNEAUX POUR ANNULOPLASTIE NON PLANS SOUPLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN) An annuloplasty ring (for use as a heart valve prosthesis) has a non-planar shape and different lateral flexibilities at different points as one proceeds annularly around the ring. These different lateral flexibilities may be achieved in different ways such as by changing the material and/or cross-sectional size, shape, or other stiffness-imparting characteristics of the cross section.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un anneau pour annuloplastie (conçu pour être utilisé en tant que prothèse valvulaire cardiaque) présentant une forme non plane et différentes souplesses latérales à différents points lorsqu'un opérateur travaille autour de l'anneau. Ces différentes souplesses latérales peuvent être obtenues de différentes manières; par exemple par modification de la matière et/ou de la taille transversale, de la forme ou de toutes autres caractéristiques conférant une certaine rigidité dans la section transversale.
