  • Patent number: 11497600
    Abstract: Prosthetic mitral valves described herein can be deployed using a transcatheter mitral valve delivery system and technique to interface and anchor in cooperation with the anatomical structures of a native mitral valve. This document describes prosthetic heart valve designs and techniques to manage blood flow through the left ventricular outflow tract. For example, this document describes prosthetic heart valve designs and techniques that reduce or prevent obstructions of the left ventricular outflow tract that may otherwise result from systolic anterior motion of an anterior leaflet of the native mitral valve.

  • Patent number: 11439506
    Abstract: Prosthetic mitral valves described herein can be deployed using a transcatheter mitral valve delivery system and technique to interface and anchor in cooperation with the anatomical structures of a native mitral valve. This document describes prosthetic heart valve designs that interface with native mitral valve structures to create a fluid seal, thereby minimizing mitral regurgitation and paravalvular leaks. This document also describes prosthetic heart valve designs and techniques to manage blood flow through the left ventricular outflow tract. In addition, this document describes prosthetic heart valve designs and techniques that reduce the risk of interference between the prosthetic valves and chordae tendineae.

  • Publication number: 20220211942
    Abstract: A system for delivering an amount of fluid medium includes an injector, a delivery catheter and a pulsatile generator. The injector is configured for injecting the fluid medium during an injection cycle. The delivery catheter includes a conduit for delivering the fluid medium. The pulsatile generator is configured to apply a pulsatile force on the fluid medium delivered through the delivery catheter at a pulsation frequency. The pulsatile force is defined by a plurality of duty cycles during the injection cycle, each of the plurality of duty cycles including a first flow level and a second flow level that is lower than the first flow level. The pulsation frequency is 3 or more duty cycles per second.

  • Patent number: 10835670
    Abstract: Systems and methods for modulating delivery of a fluid medium to a selected site within a patient's body are described. A system includes a syringe for injecting the fluid medium, a delivery catheter including a conduit for delivering the fluid medium from outside of the body to the selected site within the body, a diversion reservoir configured to receive a portion of the fluid medium, and a flow diverter assembly disposed in a fluid medium flow path between the syringe and the delivery catheter. The flow diverter assembly is configured to divert the portion of the fluid medium from the chamber of the syringe away from the delivery of the medium through the delivery catheter conduit during injecting with the syringe. The flow diverter assembly simultaneously increases fluid medium flow resistance with increasing pressure level of the fluid medium passing into the flow diverter assembly.
