Title (EN) METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR DELIVERING PROSTHESES USING RAIL TECHNIQUES
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET SYSTÈMES DE MISE EN PLACE DE PROTHÈSES PAR DES TECHNIQUES DE GUIDAGE PAR RAIL
Abstract:
(EN) Exemplary embodiments provide methods and systems for delivering a prosthesis to a target location in a lumenal system of a patient. At least one tether is secured proximate the target location to serve as a rail, and a prosthesis is advanced along the rail to the target location and secured in place. Exemplary methods and systems provide for repair of the mitral and tricuspid valves, as well as abdominal aortic aneurysms, stomach valves, fallopian tubes and the pulmonary system, among others. Also disclosed are various prostheses suitable for use with the disclosed methods and systems.
(FR) Des modes de réalisation caractéristiques concernent des procédés et des systèmes permettant de mettre en place une prothèse en un emplacement voulu d'un système intracavitaire d'un patient. On commence par fixer au moins un ancrage à proximité de l'emplacement voulu, de façon à servir de rail, puis on fait avancer la prothèse le long du rail jusqu'à l'emplacement de destination, et enfin, on fixe à demeure la prothèse. L'invention concerne ainsi des procédés et systèmes caractéristiques qui permettent une réparation des valvules mitrales et tricuspides, ainsi qu'une réparation, notamment des anévrismes aortiques abdominaux, des valves de l'estomac, des trompes de Fallope, et du système pulmonaire. L'invention concerne également diverses prothèses convenant aux procédés et systèmes de l'invention.
