Title (EN) DOCKING STATION FOR HEART VALVE PROSTHESIS
(FR) STATION D'ENCRAGE POUR PROTHÈSE DE VALVE CARDIAQUE.
Abstract:
(EN) An anchoring device that can be positioned within a native valve, such as the native mitral valve, to secure a replacement prosthetic valve in place. The anchoring device can comprise a docking station formed of a super elastic wire-like member defining a continuous, closed shape. The docking station can have an upper or atrial ring with at least two ring portions or half rings that are spaced apart across gaps. Descending bends from the ends of the two ring portions lead to a pair of anchors. The anchors can include oppositely-directed rounded V-shaped arms that extend generally parallel to the upper ring. When installed by a delivery device, the anchors can be located in the subvalvular space or the region/vicinity of the native leaflets and pinch the leaflets and the annulus against the upper ring which is located on the other side of the annulus.
(FR) Un dispositif d'ancrage peut être placé à l'intérieur d'une valve d'origine, telle que la valve mitrale, pour fixer une valve prosthétique de remplacement. Le dispositif d'ancrage comprend une station d'ancrage constituée d'un fil élastique délimitant une forme fermée continue. La station d'ancrage a une bague supérieure, ou auriculaire, avec deux anneaux, ou demi-anneaux espacés les uns des autres. Les coudes descendants des extrémités des deux parties annulaires conduisent à une paire d'éléments d'ancrage. Les ancrages comprennent des bras en forme de V arrondis opposés qui s'étendent parallèlement à l'anneau supérieur. Lorsqu'ils sont installés par un dispositif d'administration, les ancrages peuvent se situer dans l'espace sous-valvulaire, ou dans la région/proximité des feuillets natifs, pinçant les valves et la couronne contre l'anneau supérieur situé de l'autre côté de la couronne.
