Title: STEERABLE DELIVERY SYSTEM FOR REPLACEMENT MITRAL VALVE AND METHODS OF USE
Abstract:
Devices, systems and methods are described herein to provide improved steerability for delivering a prosthesis to a body location, for example, for delivering a replacement mitral valve to a native mitral valve location. A delivery component can have a plurality of slots that provide for desired bending of the delivery component, particularly compound bending of the delivery component that can facilitate steering of the delivery component in three dimensions.
