Title (EN) TRANSAPICAL MITRAL VALVE REPAIR DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE RÉPARATION PAR VOIE APICALE DE VALVULE MITRALE
Abstract:
(EN) Methods and devices for repairing a cardiac valve. A minimally invasive procedure includes creating an access in the apex region of the heart through which one or more instruments may be inserted. The device can implant artificial heart valve chordae tendineae into cardiac valve leaflet tissues to restore proper leaflet function and prevent reperfusion. The device punctures the apex of the heart and travels through the ventricle. The tip of the device rests on the defective valve and punctures the valve leaflet. A suture or a suture/guide wire combination is inserted, securing the top of the leaflet to the apex of the heart. A resilient element or shock absorber mechanism adjacent to the outside of the apex of the heart minimizes the linear travel of the device in response to the beating of the heart or opening/closing of the valve.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des dispositifs pour réparer une valvule cardiaque. Une intervention minimalement invasive consiste à créer un accès dans la région apicale du cœur à travers laquelle un ou plusieurs instruments peuvent être introduits. Le dispositif peut implanter des cordons tendineux de valvule cardiaque artificielle dans des tissus de feuillet de valvule cardiaque afin de restaurer une fonction de feuillet correcte et d'empêcher une reperfusion. Le dispositif perfore la région apicale du cœur et se déplace à travers le ventricule. La pointe du dispositif repose sur la valvule défectueuse et perfore le feuillet de valvule. Une suture ou une combinaison suture/fil guide est introduite, fixant la partie supérieure du feuillet à la région apicale du cœur. Un élément souple ou un mécanisme absorbant les chocs adjacent à la partie extérieure de la région apicale du cœur réduit à un minimum le déplacement linéaire du dispositif en réponse au battement du cœur ou à l'ouverture/fermeture de la valvule.
