Title (EN) ANATOMICAL MEASUREMENT TOOL
(FR) INSTRUMENT DE MESURE ANATOMIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A measuring device (2) for measuring tunnel defects (84) in tissue is disclosed. The measuring device can size the defect to aid future deployment of a tissue distension device. Exemplary tunnel defects are atrial septal defects, patent foramen ovales, left atrial appendages, mitral valve prolapse, and aortic valve defects. Methods for using the same are disclosed.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de mesure permettant de mesurer les anomalies des canaux dans les tissus. Ce dispositif de mesure permet de mesurer la dimension de l'anomalie afin d'assister la mise en place ultérieure d'un dispositif de distension du tissu. Les anomalies des canaux peuvent comprendre par exemple des anomalies du septum auriculaire, un foramen ovale persistant, le prolapsus valvulaire mitral, et les anomalies de la valve aortique. L'invention concerne en outre des procédés d'utilisation de cet instrument.
