Abstract
(EN)
Tissue shaping devices and methods are provided. The devices (120) can be adjusted within the body of a patient in a less invasive or non-invasive manner, such as by applying energy percutaneously or external (1300) to the patient's body. In one example, the device (120) is positioned within the coronary sinus (104) of the patient so as to effect changes in at least one dimension of the mitral valve annulus (116). The device (120) may also advantageously include a shape memory material that is responsive to changes in temperature and/or exposure to a magnetic field. In one example, the shape memory material is responsive to energy, such as electromagnetic or acoustic energy, applied from an energy source located outside the coronary sinus (104). A material having enhanced absorption characteristics with respect to the desired heating energy may also be used to facilitate heating and adjustment of the tissue shaping device (120).

La présente invention concerne des dispositifs et des procédés de mise en forme de tissu. Ces dispositifs (120) peuvent être réglés à l'intérieur du corps d'un patient d'une manière moins invasive ou non invasive, comme par application d'énergie de manière percutanée ou externe (1300) au corps du patient. Dans un exemple, ce dispositif (120) est placé à l'intérieur du sinus coronarien (104) du patient de façon à apporter des modifications dans au moins une dimension de l'anneau de la valvule mitrale (116). Le dispositif (120) peut aussi, de manière avantageuse, comprendre un matériau à mémoire de forme qui réagit aux modifications de la température et/ou à l'exposition à un champ magnétique. Dans un exemple, le matériau à mémoire de forme réagit à l'énergie, telle que l'énergie électromagnétique ou acoustique, appliquée à partir d'une source d'énergie située à l'extérieur du sinus coronarien (104). Un matériau possédant des caractéristiques d'absorption améliorée par rapport à l'énergie chauffante souhaitée peut aussi être utilisé de façon à faciliter le chauffage et le réglage de ce dispositif de mise en forme de tissu.
