CLAIMS

What is claimed:

1. A device for repairing a heart valve having native leaflets, comprising:

an artificial body having a surface structured to receive the native valve leaflets; and

a frame, the frame being structured to adjust to a shape of the heart valve,

wherein the artificial body is structured to be mounted onto the frame, and

wherein the frame is structured to be inserted onto the heart valve in a desired configuration so as to eliminate leakage of blood through the valve due to lack of coaptation or overlap between the valve leaflets.

2. The device according to claim 1, wherein the surface being structured so that when the artificial body is implanted, the native valve leaflets coapt or rest during closure of the valve.

3. The device according to claim 1, wherein the artificial body includes an inflatable member, wherein the inflatable member is structured to be adjustable upon implantation in the heart valve.

4. The device according to claim 1, wherein size and shape of the artificial body depends on anatomy of heart valve.

5. The device according to claim 1, wherein size and shape of the artificial body depends on intended placement of the artificial body in the heart valve.

6. The device according to claim 5, wherein the surface is structured to extend along the entire length of overlap between the leaflets or only a section of a length of the leaflet coaptation.

7. The device according to claim 1, wherein the frame is structured to be inserted onto the heart valve in a desired configuration so as to eliminate leakage of blood through the valve due to lack of coaptation or overlap between the valve leaflets.

8. The device according to claim 1, the device further comprising:

an annular ring,

wherein the frame is made of a shape forming alloy material, and wherein the frame includes multiple curved elements originating from the artificial body and ending in the annular ring.

9. The device according to claim 1, wherein the frame includes multiple grooves on the frame structured to mount the artificial bodies at selected locations on the frame.

10. The device according to claim 1, wherein combination of artificial body and frame is structured to control a leaflet of the valve from prolapsing and adjust combination to a configuration such that the at least one leaflet may overlap on the artificial body.

11. The device according to claim 1 , wherein the artificial body is structured to have an adjustment of a depth or distance from an annulus of the valve when implanted.

12. The device according to claim 1, wherein the artificial body includes a curvature, the amount of curvature depending on the desired depth or distance from an annulus of the valve when implanted.

13. The device according to claim 1, the device further comprising:

an annular ring, wherein the artificial body ends in the annular ring.

14. The device according to claim 1, wherein the frame and artificial body are structured to be directly mounted onto annulus of the valve or on a previously implanted annuloplasty ring.

15. The device according to claim 14, wherein the device is without an annular ring.

16. A device for repairing a heart valve of a heart of a patient having native valve leaflets, comprising:

an artificial body having a surface structured to receive the native valve leaflets,

wherein the artificial body is structured to be mounted onto a frame that is structured to hold the artificial body in the implanted configuration for duration that the frame remains in the heart.

17. The device according to claim 16, wherein the artificial body is structured to be implanted onto a frame previously implanted into the heart.

18. A surgical implant device for a heart valve of a patient, comprising:

a frame; and

a coaptation member, a coaptation member including a bridge and at least one artificial body, wherein the coaptation member is structured to be adjusted to correspond to an anatomy of the valve of the patient.

19. The device according to claim 18, wherein the coaptation member includes at least one inflatable member, the inflatable member being structured to be adjustable to correspond to the anatomy of valve.

20. The device according to claim 18, wherein the bridge extends from one side of the frame to an opposing side.
