Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHODS FOR CUTTING AN ATRIAL WALL
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉS DE COUPE D'UNE PAROI AURICULAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) A method includes coupling, at least temporarily, a support member adjacent to a target tissue. The support member is configured to support the target tissue and to define a path along which a cutting device can move. The method includes moving the cutting device along the path defined by the support member to cut and/or dilate the target tissue. In some embodiments, the method optionally includes disposing a cannula of a device within the cut defined in target tissue. The cannula is coupled to the target tissue such that a lumen defined by the cannula is in fluid communication with a volume defined at least in part by the target tissue.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé comprenant l'accouplement, au moins temporaire, d'un élément de support adjacent à un tissu cible. L'élément de support est conçu pour supporter le tissu cible et pour définir une trajectoire le long de laquelle un dispositif de coupe peut se déplacer. Le procédé comprend le déplacement du dispositif de coupe le long de la trajectoire définie par l'élément de support pour couper et/ou dilater le tissu cible. Dans certains modes de réalisation, le procédé comprend éventuellement la disposition d'une canule d'un dispositif à l'intérieur de la découpe définie dans le tissu cible. La canule est accouplée au tissu cible de sorte qu'une lumière définie par la canule soit en communication fluidique avec un volume défini au moins en partie par le tissu cible.
