Title: OPPOSING DISK DEVICE FOR GRASPING CARDIAC VALVE TISSUE
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to repair devices and methods for repair of regurgitant tricuspid valves. A repair method includes positioning a repair device at a tricuspid valve in a collapsed configuration. The repair device includes a proximal disk and a distal disk joined by a neck section. The distal disk is deployed by passing it from the collapsed state to an expanded configuration on a first side of the tricuspid valve. The proximal disk is then deployed by passing it from the collapsed state to an expanded configuration on a second side of the tricuspid valve so as to grasp all three tricuspid valve leaflets between the deployed distal disk and the deployed proximal disk.
