  • Publication number: 20220296368
    Abstract: A prosthesis is provided for implantation at a native semilunar valve of a native valve complex, the native valve complex having three semilunar sinuses and three native commissures. The prosthesis includes a valve prosthesis support, which comprises a support structure comprising exactly three engagement arms that meet one another at three respective junctures. The engagement arms are shaped so as define three peak complexes at the three respective junctures, and three trough complexes, each of which is between two of the peak complexes. Upon implantation of the prosthesis, each of the engagement arms is at least partially disposed within a respective one of the semilunar sinuses, such that each of the peak complexes is disposed distal to and in rotational alignment with a respective one of the native commissures, and each of the trough complexes is disposed at least partially within the respective one of the semilunar sinuses.

  • Patent number: 11350953
    Abstract: A device for fracturing calcifications in heart valves includes a tube formed with at least two longitudinal slits that form at least two struts. Each of the struts includes two or more pairs of notches formed on opposite sides of the strut. The struts have a contracted orientation in which the struts are not expanded outwards from the tube and an outwardly expanded orientation in which the struts are expanded outwards from the tube and have sufficient strength and rigidity to impact and fracture a calcification in a heart valve.
