Title (EN) DELIVERY AND RETRIEVAL SYSTEMS FOR COLLAPSIBLE/EXPANDABLE PROSTHETIC HEART VALVES
(FR) SYSTÈME DE MISE EN PLACE ET DE RETRAIT DE VALVULES CARDIAQUES PROTHÉTIQUES REPLIABLES/EXPANSIBLES
Abstract:
(EN) A system for delivering a collapsible and re-expandable prosthetic heart valve into a patient includes a valve support structure (140) around which the valve (10) is disposed in a collapsed condition. A sheath structure (110) surrounds the collapsed valve, but can be moved relative to the valve to uncover it for expansion at the desired implant site in the patient. The sheath structure may be variously mounted and moved to deploy the valve in various ways. For example, the sheath structure may include multiple parts, each of which can be moved separately to separately deploy various parts of the valve. The apparatus may have other aspects, such as the ability to reverse deployment of the valve, the ability to pass other instrumentation through the valve delivery apparatus, the ability to be smoothly withdrawn from the patient after deployment of the valve, etc.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un système qui permet la mise en place d'une valvule cardiaque prothétique repliable et expansible à l'intérieur d'un patient, lequel système comprend une structure de support de valvule (140) autour duquel la valvule (10) est disposée à l'état replié. Une structure de gaine (110) entoure la valvule repliée, ladite gaine pouvant être déplacée par rapport à la valvule afin de la découvrir et d'autoriser son expansion sur le site d'implantation désiré chez le patient. La structure de gaine peut être montée de diverses façons et peut être déplacée pour déployer la valvule de différentes manières. Par exemple, la structure de gaine peut comprendre de multiples parties, dont chacune peut être déplacée séparément afin de déployer séparément différentes parties de la valvule. L'appareil peut être dotés d'autres fonctionnalités, telles que la capacité d'inverser le déploiement de la valvule, la capacité de faire passer d'autres instruments à travers l'appareil de mise en place de la valvule, la capacité d'être facilement retiré du patient après le déploiement de la valvule, etc. T
