Title (EN) PROSTHETIC LEAFLET ASSEMBLY FOR REPAIRING A DEFECTIVE CARDIAC VALVE AND METHODS OF USING THE SAME
(FR) ENSEMBLE DE PROTHÈSES VALVAIRES POUR RÉPARER UNE VALVULE CARDIAQUE DÉFECTUEUSE ET SES PROCÉDÉS D'UTILISATION
Abstract:
(EN) Methods and apparatus are provided for repairing or replacing a defective cardiac valve including a prosthetic leaflet assembly (10) having an expandable frame (30) with one or more anchors (31,32) configured to engage a predetermined region of the defective cardiac valve in an expanded deployed state, and at least one prosthetic leaflet (21,22) coupled to the expandable frame. The prosthetic leaflet assembly is configured such that the prosthetic leaflet is suspended within a flow path of the defective cardiac valve and coapts with, and improves functioning of, one or more native leaflets of the defective cardiac valve.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et un appareil pour réparer ou remplacer une valvule cardiaque défectueuse comprenant un ensemble de prothèses valvaires ayant un cadre expansible avec une ou plusieurs ancres configurées pour engager une région prédéterminée de la valvule cardiaque défectueuse dans un état déployé expansé et au moins une prothèse valvaire couplée au cadre expansible. L'ensemble de prothèses valvaires est configuré de sorte que la prothèse valvaire est mise en suspension à l'intérieur d'un trajet d'écoulement de la valvule cardiaque défectueuse et se coapte avec une ou plusieurs valves endogènes de la valvule cardiaque défectueuse.
