  • Patent number: 10945835
    Abstract: Prosthetic heart valve devices for percutaneous replacement of native heart valves and associated systems and method are disclosed herein. A prosthetic heart valve device configured in accordance with a particular embodiment of the present technology can include an anchoring member having a first portion configured to engage with tissue on or near the annulus of the native heart valve and to deform in a non-circular shape to conform to the tissue. The device can also include a valve support coupled to a second portion of the anchoring member, configured to support a prosthetic valve and having a cross-sectional shape. In some embodiments, the first portion of the anchoring member is mechanically isolated from the valve support such that the cross-sectional shape of the valve support remains sufficiently stable that the prosthetic valve remains competent when the anchoring member is deformed in the non-circular shape.

  • Publication number: 20200390544
    Abstract: A heart valve repair device may include a support configured to extend through a native annulus of a native heart valve, wherein the support comprises an upstream portion and a downstream portion; an annular expandable retainer extending from the upstream portion of the support, and an arm extending from the downstream portion of the support. The annular expandable retainer may include a C-shaped cross-section that is open inwardly. The arm may be configured to reach behind a leaflet of the native heart valve and sandwich the leaflet between the arm and the support.

  • Publication number: 20200261226
    Abstract: A flow diversion device configured in accordance with embodiments of the present technology may include, for example, a housing including openings to channels that intersect at a junction. The flow diversion device may also include, for example, a flow control component disposed at the junction and movable to selectively form pathways for fluid communication based on a position of the flow control component. For example, when the flow control component is in a first position, a first pathway may allow fluid flow causing deployment of the prosthetic heart valve device and, when the flow control component is in a second position, a second pathway may allow fluid flow causing recapture of the prosthetic heart valve device. The flow diversion device may include a handle movable to position the flow control component in the first or second positions thereby selectively controlling fluid flow of the delivery system.

  • Patent number: 10702380
    Abstract: Prosthetic heart valve devices for percutaneous replacement of native heart valves and associated systems and method are disclosed herein. A prosthetic heart valve device configured in accordance with a particular embodiment of the present technology can include a valve support having an upstream end and a downstream end extending around a longitudinal axis and having a cross-sectional shape. The valve support can have an outer surface and an inner surface, wherein the inner surface is configured to support a prosthetic valve. The device can also include an expandable retainer coupled to the upstream end of the valve support. The retainer can be configured to engage tissue on or near the annulus. In some embodiments, the valve support is mechanically isolated from the retainer such that the cross-sectional shape of the valve support remains sufficiently stable when the retainer is deformed in a non-circular shape by engagement with the tissue.

  • Patent number: 10349946
    Abstract: Methods for treatment of aneurysms using a sequential manifold console to deploy multiple filling structures are provided herein. In one aspect, aneurysms are treated by simultaneously filling two double-walled filling structure using a sequential manifold console to guide a user in the steps to be followed in the procedure and to reliably achieve a consistent and durable aneurysmal treatment using a curable medium. The structures may be delivered over balloon deployment mechanisms in order to shape and open tubular lumens therethrough. Pairs of filling structures delivered to the aneurysm from different access openings of a patient can be simultaneously prepared and pressurized from a single treatment console when treating abdominal aortic aneurysms using the described systems and methods.
