Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR HEART VALVE REPAIR
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ DE RÉPARATION DE VALVE CARDIAQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A method of gathering tissue of a heart valve leaflet 2 may include inserting an elongated catheter assembly 12 to a position adjacent the heart valve leaflet, the catheter assembly including a capture tool 22 and a tissue support member 30. The capture tool 22 and the tissue support member 30 may each be independently moveable between a retracted position and an extended position. Partially retracting the capture tool 22 with the tissue support member 30 in the extended position gathers tissue 15 of the heart valve leaflet 2 between the capture tool and the tissue support member. A clip 55 may then be applied from the catheter assembly 12 to the gathered tissue 15 to hold the tissue substantially in a gathered configuration.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé de rassemblement de tissu d'une valve cardiaque 2 pouvant consister à insérer un ensemble cathéter allongé 12 jusqu'à une position adjacente à la valve cardiaque, l'ensemble cathéter comprenant un outil de capture 22 et un élément de support pour tissu 30. L'outil de capture 22 et l'élément de support pour tissu 30 peuvent chacun indépendamment passer d'une position rétractée à une position étendue. La rétractation partielle de l'outil de capture 22 avec l'élément de support pour tissu 30 en position étendue permet de rassembler le tissu 15 de la valve cardiaque 2 entre l'outil de capture et l'élément de support pour tissu. Une agrafe 55 peut alors être appliquée depuis l'ensemble cathéter 12 sur le tissu rassemblé 15 afin de maintenir le tissu dans une configuration sensiblement rassemblée.
