  • Publication number: 20210251758
    Abstract: Delivery devices and device elements that provide steering capabilities and methods of steering such delivery devices during the delivery of a stented prosthesis to a target site. Various delivery devices include a shaft assembly having a plurality of lumens through which tension members that compressively retain the stented prosthesis to the shaft assembly are routed. By selectively tensioning one or more tension members, the shaft assembly can be pulled or steered in a desired direction. Various embodiments include one or more steering or stiffening rods that can reinforce the device or counteract any unintended bending or steering of the delivery device.

  • Publication number: 20210251754
    Abstract: A catheter-based system for percutaneously supporting and articulating a septal wall of a heart includes a catheter and a flanged device. The flanged device includes a distal anchor and a proximal anchor, and has a radially collapsed configuration and a radially expanded configuration. When the flanged device is in the radially expanded configuration and disposed through a transseptal puncture in the septal wall, the flanged device is configured to anchor to the septal wall to permit manipulation thereof whereby an angle between an axis through the transseptal puncture and an axis through a native valve is reduced. The proximal anchor and the distal anchor may each be self-expanding or balloon expandable. The flanged device may further include a flanged device shaft. The flanged device shaft may be releasably coupled to the catheter.

  • Publication number: 20210161661
    Abstract: Methods of transcatheter delivery of a prosthetic heart valve. A distal region of a guide member assembly is advanced into a heart of a patient. The distal region is docked to native anatomy of the heart. A delivery device, including a collapsed prosthetic heart valve, is advanced over the docked guide member assembly. The collapsed prosthetic heart valve is located at an implantation site. The prosthetic heart valve is deployed from the delivery device, and then the delivery device is removed from the patient. At least a portion of the guide member assembly is removed from the patient. In some embodiments, the docking structure is docked to one or more of native mitral valve leaflets, chordae in the left ventricle, or walls of the left ventricle as part of a transseptal mitral valve delivery procedure.

    Abstract: Delivery systems (100, 200, 300, 400, 500) including a delivery device (130, 230, 330, 430, 530) having a catheter (132, 133, 232, 233, 332, 333, 432, 433, 532) and a stabilization device (150, 250, 350, 450, 550), the delivery device configured for delivering an apparatus to a left atrium (20) of a patient via the patient's vasculature. The stabilization device has a delivery position in which the stabilization device is collapsed against the catheter and a deployed position in which the stabilization device expands to engage and support the catheter within the vasculature, for example, within the vena cava (14) proximate the right atrium (16). In various embodiments, the delivery device functions as an introducer though which a second delivery device carrying the apparatus is inserted. Methods of accessing the left atrium with the delivery systems and devices are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20210022860
    Abstract: A delivery system for percutaneously delivering a heart valve prosthesis to a site of a native heart valve includes a delivery catheter and a heart valve prosthesis. The delivery catheter includes an outer sheath, an inner shaft, and an orifice restriction mechanism. The heart valve prosthesis has a valve member and a docking member. When the orifice restriction mechanism is positioned within the docking member within an annulus of the native heart valve, the orifice restriction mechanism temporarily replicates the operation of the native heart valve until the valve member is positioned within the docking member.

  • Publication number: 20200306033
    Abstract: A prosthetic valve including an inner frame, an outer frame, and a connection assembly interconnecting the frames. The inner frame defines an interior volume for receiving a valve structure within the interior volume. The outer frame surrounds the inner frame. The inner and outer frames are each configured to be transitionable between compressed and expanded conditions. The prosthetic heart valve provides a initial deployed state in which the inner and outer frames are in the expanded condition, and a radial shape of the outer frame is adjustable via the connection assembly to a final deployed state. A shape of the outer frame can be adjusted upon implant to enable radial anchoring at the native annulus, while addressing possible non-uniformities of the native annulus and possible anatomical concerns such as LVOT obstruction.
