  • Publication number: 20240138979
    Abstract: This document provides devices and methods for the treatment of heart conditions. For example, this document provides prosthetic heart valves and transcatheter heart valve replacement methods. The prosthetic heart valves can be configured into a low-profile configuration for containment within a small diameter delivery sheath. The prosthetic heart valves include can include a valve member attached to a stent frame. In some embodiments, the valve member is a molded biomaterial with a novel shape and resulting performance characteristics. Localized protective covering members can be attached to the stent frame to prevent the valve member from contacting the stent frame as the valve member cycles between its open and closed configurations.

  • Patent number: 11963873
    Abstract: Systems and methods for modifying a heart valve annulus in a minimally invasive surgical procedure. A helical anchor is provided, having a memory set to a coiled shape or state. The helical anchor is further configured to self-revert from a substantially straight state to the coiled state. The helical anchor is loaded within a needle that constrains the helical anchor to the substantially straight state. The needle is delivered to the valve annulus and inserted into tissue of the annulus. The helical anchor is then deployed from the needle (e.g., the needle is retracted from over the helical anchor). Once deployed, the helical anchor self-transitions toward the coiled shape, cinching engaged tissue of the valve annulus.

  • Patent number: 11833038
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a valve prosthesis includes an inlet portion that is substantially s-shaped and configured to engage the floor of the outflow tract of the native heart atrium. In some embodiments, a valve prosthesis includes a chordae guiding element configured to reduce bending of the chordae to reduce stress on the chordae during the cardiac cycle. In some embodiments, a valve prosthesis includes a central portion having an hourglass shape configured to pinch a native annulus in order to provide axial fixation of the valve prosthesis within a valve site. In some embodiments, a valve prosthesis includes a frame having an outflow end that is flared to provide a gap between an outflow end of the frame and an outflow end of prosthetic leaflets when the prosthetic leaflets are fully opened.

  • Patent number: 11833044
    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.

  • Patent number: 11826250
    Abstract: A delivery system for percutaneously deploying a valve prosthesis. The system includes a catheter assembly including a delivery sheath capsule and a handle having an oscillating device. The capsule is configured to compressively retain the valve prosthesis during implantation. After the valve prosthesis is partially exposed during implantation, the oscillating device can create a vibratory motion to reduce the friction between the valve prosthesis and the delivery sheath capsule in order to recapture the valve prosthesis.

  • Publication number: 20210077258
    Abstract: A heart valve therapy system including a delivery device and a stented valve. The delivery device includes an outer sheath, an inner shaft, an optional hub assembly, and a plurality of tethers. In a delivery state, a stent frame of the prosthesis is crimped over the inner shaft and maintained in a compressed condition by the outer sheath. The tethers are connected to the stent frame. In a partial deployment state, the outer sheath is at least partially withdrawn, allowing the stent frame to self-expand. Tension in the tethers prevents the stent frame from rapidly expanding and optionally allowing recapture. Upon completion of the stent frame expansion, the tethers are withdrawn.
