Title (EN) PROSTHETIC HEART VALVE
(FR) VALVE CARDIAQUE PROTHÉTIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Disclosed prosthetic valves can comprise a sewing ring configured to secure the valve to an implantation site. Some disclosed valves comprise a resiliently collapsible frame having a neutral configuration and a collapsed deployment configuration. Some disclosed frames can self-expand to the neutral configuration when released from the collapsed deployment configuration. Collapsing a disclosed valve can provide convenient access to the sewing ring, such as for securing the valve to the implantation site, as well as for the insertion of the valve through relatively small surgical incisions.
(FR)L'invention concerne des valves prothétiques pouvant comporter un anneau de couture configuré pour fixer la valve à un site d'implantation. Certaines valves selon l'invention comportent une armature élastiquement repliable possédant une configuration neutre et une configuration repliée de déploiement. Certaines des armatures selon l'invention sont auto-expansibles vers la configuration neutre lorsqu'elles sont libérées de la configuration repliée de déploiement. Le repliement d'une valve selon l'invention peut permettre un accès commode à l'anneau de couture, notamment pour fixer la valve au site d'implantation, ainsi que pour l'insertion de la valve à travers des incisions chirurgicales relativement petites.
