  • Patent number: 10555812
    Abstract: Methods of deploying and securing a heart valve prosthesis are disclosed. A heart valve prosthesis (100) having a plurality of anchor guides (212) is loaded within a catheter-based delivery device, wherein each of the anchor guides is releasably engaged by a respective elongate member (338) and wherein tensioning of the elongate members aids in collapsing the prosthesis during loading. The delivery device is advanced via a transcatheter procedure to position the heart valve prosthesis at an implantation site. The heart valve prosthesis undergoes controlled deployment by controlling the release of tension on the elongate members. After deployment of the heart valve prosthesis, an anchor tool (660) is advanced along a guide member to the anchor guide positioned at a securement site. When the securement site is reached, an anchor clip (662) is released from the anchor tool to secure the prosthesis to the heart.

  • Publication number: 20140218380
    Abstract: A method and apparatus is provided in which a digital image is transmitted to a presentation projector resource over a wireless transmission medium using a reduced amount of bandwidth by transmitting a subset of the digital image data. The subset of image data may be a delta subset that represents those areas of the image that have changed since the previous transmission. The subset image data may also be a scalable vector graphics representation of the subset of the digital image. A projector discovery logic selects a suitable projector resource based on the order or signal strength of the discovery replies. A wireless image transmission session is established with the selected projector resource during which the projector is unavailable to other devices. The subset image data may be compressed and transmission coordinated with the projector resource so that the data is sent only when it is ready to be received.
