    Abstract: Methods of heart valve decalcification may include mechanically removing calcium deposits on a heart valve, and removing debris from the mechanical decalcification via suction. The mechanical removal of the calcium deposits may be accomplished with a burr and/or an ultrasonic device. In some embodiments, mechanical removal of the calcium deposits may be accomplished with a handheld mechanical decalcification device comprising a bur extending from a hand piece. A catheter system for removing plaque deposits from a heart valve may include at least one mechanical decalcification device configured for cleaning the edges of heart valve leaflets, and at least one active aspiration device. The at least one mechanical decalcification device may comprise a bur and/or an ultrasonic device. The system may additionally include a deployable net apparatus configured to encompass at least a portion of a heart valve.
