Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR HEART VALVE REPAIR
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ DE RÉPARATION DE VALVULES CARDIAQUES
Abstract
(EN) A transcatheter method of gathering tissue of a heart valve leaflet may include inserting an elongated catheter assembly (12) to a position adjacent the heart valve leaflet, the catheter assembly including a capture tool (22) moveable between a retracted position and an extended position, a tissue support (40), and a clamping member (30) moveable between an open position and a closed position. The capture tool may be partially retracted to gather tissue of the heart valve leaflet between the tissue support and the clamping member. The clamping member may then be moved from the open position toward the closed position so as to clamp a substantial portion of the gathered tissue of the heart valve leaflet between the tissue support and the clamping member. Subsequently, a clip (55) may be applied from the catheter assembly to the clamped tissue so as to hold the clamped tissue substantially in a gathered configuration.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé, réalisé au moyen d'un cathéter, de rassemblement des tissus d'un feuillet valvulaire cardiaque pouvant comprendre l'insertion d'un ensemble cathéter allongé (12) jusqu'à une position adjacente au feuillet valvulaire cardiaque, l'ensemble cathéter comprenant un outil de capture (22) pouvant passer d'une position rétractée à une position étendue, un support pour tissus (40), et un élément de clampage (30) pouvant passer d'une position ouverte à une position fermée. L'outil de capture peut se rétracter en partie afin de rassembler les tissus du feuillet valvulaire cardiaque entre le support pour tissus et l'élément de clampage. La position de l'élément de clampage peut ensuite être changée de la position ouverte vers la position fermée de sorte à clamper une partie substantielle des tissus rassemblés du feuillet valvulaire cardiaque entre le support pour tissus et l'élément de clampage. Ensuite, une agrafe (55) provenant de l'ensemble cathéter peut être appliquée sur les tissus clampés de sorte à maintenir les tissus clampés dans une configuration essentiellement rassemblée.
