Abstract: front page image
(EN)A tissue anchor (200, 258, 300) includes a shaft (122), a tissue-coupling element (128), and a flexible elongate tension member (202). The tissue-coupling element (128) includes a wire (150), which is shaped as an open loop (154) having more than one turn when the tissue anchor (200, 258, 300) is unconstrained. The tension member (202) includes a distal portion (204) that is fixed to a site (206) on the open loop (154), a proximal portion (208), which has a longitudinal segment (209) that runs alongside at least a portion (210) of the shaft (122), and a crossing portion (212), which (i) is disposed between the distal and the proximal portions (204, 208) along the tension member (202), and (ii) crosses at least a portion of the open loop (154) when the tissue anchor (200, 258, 300) is unconstrained. The tissue anchor (200, 258, 300) is configured to allow relative axial motion between the at least a portion (210) of the shaft (122) and the longitudinal segment (209) of the proximal portion (208) of the tension member (202) when the tissue anchor (200, 258, 300) is unconstrained.
(FR)L'invention concerne un ancrage de tissu (200, 258, 300) qui comprend un arbre (122), un élément de couplage de tissu (128) et un élément de tension allongé et souple (202). L'élément de couplage de tissu (128) comprend un fil (150), celui-ci se présentant sous la forme d'une boucle ouverte (154) ayant plus d'un tour lorsque l'ancrage de tissu (200, 258, 300) n'est pas contraint. L'élément de tension (202) comprend une partie distale (204), qui est fixée à un site (206) sur la boucle ouverte (154), une partie proximale (208), qui présente un segment longitudinal (209) qui s'étend le long d'au moins une partie (210) de l'arbre (122), et une partie de croisement (212), qui (i) est disposée entre les parties distale et proximale (204, 208) le long de l'élément de tension (202) et (ii) qui croise au moins une partie de la boucle ouverte (154) lorsque l'ancrage de tissu (200, 258, 300) n'est pas contraint. L'ancrage de tissu (200, 258, 300) est configuré pour permettre un mouvement axial relatif entre la ou les parties (210) de l'arbre (122) et le segment longitudinal (209) de la partie proximale (208) de l'élément de tension (202) lorsque l'ancrage de tissu (200, 258, 300) n'est pas contraint.
