Title (EN) HEART VALVE INSERTER
(FR) INSTRUMENT D'INSERTION DE VALVE CARDIAQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A heart valve holder-inserter (21, 121) is designed to facilitate easy implantation of a mechanical heart valve prosthesis (23, 123). This holder-inserter, at its distal end, incorporates a pair of diametrically opposed guide members (47, 49, 81, 147, 149) which extend well beyond the leading edge of the prosthesis and which have exterior surfaces (53, 83, 153) of substantial dimension that are smoothly curved and proportioned so as to slowly spread the tissue annulus in order to facilitate easy entrance thereinto of the leading edge portion of the mechanical valve body.
(FR)L'invention concerne un instrument d'insertion-support de valve cardiaque (21, 121) conçu pour faciliter l'implantation d'une prothèse valve cardiaque mécanique (23, 123). Cet instrument d'insertion-support comprend, au niveau de son extrémité distale, une paire d'éléments de guidage diamétralement opposés (47, 49, 81, 147, 149) s'étendant bien au-delà du bord avant de la prothèse et comprenant des surfaces extérieures (53, 83, 153) de dimensions importantes, régulièrement incurvées et proportionnées de sorte à étaler lentement l'anneau tissulaire afin de faciliter l'entrée de la partie bord avant du corps de valve mécanique.
