Systems and methods for supporting or occluding a physiological opening or cavity

Implantable devices for placement at a cavity or opening such as an aneurysm are disclosed. The implantable devices, in a deployed condition, have a generally inverted u-shaped profile with a curved or angled framework support structure sized and configured for placement in proximity to tissue surrounding the opening and anchoring legs extending proximally from the framework structure sized and configured to contact the wall of a neighboring lumen at opposed locations.

Anchor magazine

Apparatus is provided, the apparatus comprising (i) a housing (22, 222), shaped to define a channel (24, 224) having an anchor-storage zone (26, 226) and an opening (28, 228) configured to provide access for an anchor driver (60) to the anchor-storage zone; (ii) a tissue anchor (40), stored in the anchor-storage zone and slidable through the channel; and (iii) a retaining member (30, 230). The retaining member (a) has a retaining state in which the retaining member is configured to retain the tissue anchor in the anchor-storage zone, and (b) is configured, by moving in response to a proximally-directed force applied to the tissue anchor, to allow the tissue anchor to leave the anchor-storage zone in response to the proximally-directed force.
