Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHODS FOR IMPLANTING COLLAPSIBLE/EXPANDABLE PROSTHETIC HEART VALVES
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉS D'IMPLANTATION DE VALVULES CARDIAQUES PROSTHÉTIQUES REPLIABLE/EXPANSIBLES
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus for delivering a prosthetic heart valve into a patient by means that are less invasive than conventional open-chest, open-heart surgery. The prosthetic valve may be collapsed while in a delivery device. When the valve reaches the desired implant site in the patient, the valve can be released from the delivery device, which allows the valve to re-expand to the configuration in which it can function as a heart valve. For example, the delivery device may be constructed to facilitate delivery of the prosthetic valve into the patient via the apex of the patient's heart.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil permettant l'implantation d'une valvule cardiaque prothétique chez un patient par des moyens qui sont moins invasifs que la chirurgie à thorax ouvert, à cœur ouvert. La valvule prothétique peut être repliée lorsqu'elle se trouve dans un dispositif d'implantation. Lorsque la valvule atteint le site d'implantation souhaité chez le patient, la valvule peut être libérée du dispositif d'implantation, permettant ainsi à la valvule de se déployer à nouveau vers la configuration dans laquelle elle peut fonctionner comme une valvule cardiaque. Par exemple, le dispositif d'implantation peut être construit pour faciliter l'implantation de la valvule prosthétique chez le patient via l'apex du cœur du patient.
