Title (EN) HEART VALVE PROSTHESIS ANCHORING DEVICES AND METHODS
(FR) DISPOSITIFS ET PROCÉDÉS D'ANCRAGE DE PROTHÈSE DE VALVULE CARDIAQUE
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus and methods for securing heart valve repair or replacement prostheses in or near the heart. The apparatus and methods are particularly well suited for traditional surgery or minimally invasive surgery. The invention secures a heart valve repair or replacement prosthesis in place while lowering surgical exposure. The invention improves the ease of implantation because it reduces the number of surgical knots a clinician would normally tie in the limited space in and around the heart.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil et des procédés pour fixer une réparation de valvule cardiaque ou des prothèses de remplacement dans ou près du cœur. L'appareil et les procédés sont particulièrement bien appropriés pour une chirurgie classique ou une chirurgie minimalement invasive. L'invention fixe en place une réparation de valvule cardiaque ou une prothèse de remplacement tout en diminuant l'exposition chirurgicale. L'invention améliore la facilité d'implantation car elle réduit le nombre de nœuds chirurgicaux qu'un clinicien nouerait normalement dans l'espace limité dans et autour du cœur.
