Title (EN) SYSTEM, APPARATUS, AND METHOD FOR REPAIRING SEPTAL DEFECTS
(FR) SYSTEME, APPAREIL ET PROCEDE PERMETTANT DE REPARER LES MALFORMATIONS CONGENITALES DU SEPTUM INTER-VENTRICULAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus and method for repairing septal defects includes advancing a catheter to the site of the defect, grasping opposing edges of the defect, passing one or more suture lines through the opposing edges, and tightening the suture lines. The catheter can include one or more vacuum ports, with the vacuum ports being sized and configured to grasp opposing edges of the defect when vacuum is applied thereto. The vacuum ports may be positioned longitudinally distant from each other along the catheter, and may also be on different sides of the catheter. The vacuum ports may have vacuum applied via independent control. The catheter can also include suture deploying structure that prevents the suture line from becoming entangled in the catheter.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un appareil et un procédé permettant de réparer les malformations congénitales du septum inter-ventriculaire (malformations septales), lequel procédé consiste à faire avancer un cathéter jusqu'à l'emplacement de la malformation, à saisir les bords opposés de la malformation, à faire passer au moins une ligne de suture à travers les bords opposés, et à resserrer les lignes de suture. Le cathéter peut comprendre un ou plusieurs orifices d'aspiration, d'une taille et d'une configuration qui leur permettent de saisir les bords opposés de la malformation lorsqu'une aspiration leur est appliquée. Les orifices d'aspiration peuvent être placés à une certaine distance les uns des autres, dans le sens longitudinal, le long du cathéter, et peuvent également se trouver de côtés différents du cathéter. Les orifices d'aspiration peuvent appliquer une aspiration via une commande indépendante. Le cathéter peut également comprendre une structure de déploiement de suture qui empêche la ligne de suture de s'emmêler dans le cathéter.
