Title (EN) CONSTRICTING A CARDIAC VALVE ANNULUS AND INSTALLING A RING ONTO A CARDIAC VALVE ANNULUS
(FR) CONSTRICTION D'UN ANNEAU DE VALVE CARDIAQUE ET INSTALLATION D'UN ANNEAU SUR UN ANNEAU DE VALVE CARDIAQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A cardiac valve annulus may be constricted by using an apparatus to deliver a cord to the annulus, affixing the cord, and subsequently tightening that cord. In some embodiments, this apparatus includes an elongated core with a main channel, a set of first channels, and at least one second channel, all of which run through the core. The first channels accommodate pull wires for triggering the anchor launchers, and the second channels accommodate portions of the cord. Support arms extend distally beyond the core, and anchor launchers are mounted to each of these support arms. The support arms hold the distal ends of the anchor launchers at positions distributed about the annulus. The anchors are launched to affix the cord, and the cord is tightened in a subsequent procedure.
(FR) Un anneau de valve cardiaque peut être rétréci à l'aide d'un appareil pour délivrer un cordon à l'anneau, fixer le cordon, et ensuite serrer ce cordon. Dans certains modes de réalisation, cet appareil comprend un cœur allongé avec un canal principal, un ensemble de premiers canaux, et au moins un second canal, tous ces canaux s'étendant à travers le coeur. Les premiers canaux reçoivent des fils de traction pour déclencher les lanceurs d'ancrage, et les seconds canaux reçoivent des parties du cordon. Des bras de support s'étendent de manière distale au-delà du coeur, et des lanceurs d'ancrage sont montés sur chacun de ces bras de support. Les bras de support maintiennent les extrémités distales des lanceurs d'ancrage à des positions réparties autour de l'anneau. Les ancres sont lancées pour fixer le cordon, et le cordon est serré dans une procédure ultérieure.
