Title (EN) PROSTHETIC HEART VALVE STRUCTURES AND RELATED METHODS
(FR) STRUCTURE DE VALVULE CARDIAQUE PROSTHÉTIQUE, ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract:
(EN) A prosthetic heart valve includes a valve core (20) and a mounting retainer (39) that extends radially out from the core to an outer perimeter portion (40). The outer perimeter portion has a different shape than a perimeter of the valve core when both perimeters are viewed along an axis that will be the axis of blood flow through the valve core when the prosthetic heart valve is in use in a patient. The outer perimeter portion is used to mount the valve to another structure such as a native valve annulus in a valve replacement procedure. The mounting retainer bridges the gap(s) between the valve core and the outer perimeter portion, and may also provide attachment sites for other native tissue structures (like chordae tendonae), which attachment sites can be at or at least closer to original (native) attachment sites for those tissue structures.
(FR) L'invention concerne une valvule cardiaque prosthétique comprenant un noyau de valvule et un élément de retenue de montage qui s'étend radialement à l'extérieur à partir du noyau vers la partie périphérique extérieure. La partie périphérique extérieure a une forme différente d'une périphérie du noyau de valvule lorsque les deux périmètres sont vus le long d'un axe qui va être l'axe d'écoulement sanguin à travers le noyau de valvule lorsque la valvule cardiaque prosthétique est utilisée dans le cœur d'un patient. La partie périphérique extérieure est utilisée pour monter la valvule sur une autre structure, telle l'anneau de la valvule d'origine, dans un processus de remplacement de valvule. L'élément de retenue de montage enjambe l'espace ou les espaces entre le noyau de valvule et la partie périphérique extérieure, et peut également fournir des sites de fixation pour d'autres structures de tissu d'origine (comme un cordage tendineux), lesquels sites de fixation peuvent être au niveau ou au moins plus proches des sites de fixation d'origine (natifs) pour ces structures de tissu.
