Without limitation, target sites for imaging include heart valves, calcified heart valves, calcium plastered valve on the heart valve or plaque on the inner wall of the blood vessel of a patient....

Methods, devices and systems for cardioelectromagnetic treatment
Disclosed are methods of treatment or prophylaxis of a cardiac-related condition by electromagnetic field application. A person having or susceptible to such condition is subjected to low-level electromagnetic fields having a frequency between zero up to about 200 Hertz. The diseased state or condition may include diseased heart valves, an enlarged...

Local delivery of therapeutic agent to heart valves
The present invention relates to implantable medical devices and methods that employ these medical devices to treat heart valves. In one embodiment, a medical device is provided comprising a body. The body may have a portion thereof including therapeutic agent and can be configured to support the device proximate a heart...

Prosthetic heart valves, support structures and systems and methods for implanting the same
Prosthetic valves and their component parts are described, as are prosthetic valve delivery devices and methods for their use. The prosthetic valves are particularly adapted for use in percutaneous aortic valve replacement procedures. The delivery devices are particularly adapted for use in minimally invasive surgical procedures....

Biomaterials with enhanced properties and devices made therefrom
Biomaterials with enhanced properties such as improved strength, flexibility, durability and reduced thickness are useful in the fabrication of biomedical devices, particularly those subjected to continuous or non-continuous loads where repeated flexibility and long-term durability are required. These enhanced properties can be attributed to elevated levels of elastin, altered collagen types,...

Stented prosthetic heart valves
A surgical sutureless valve that is attached to a stent frame for delivery to a location in a patient using percutaneous implantation devices and methods....

Systems and methods for rapidly deploying surgical heart valves
A quick-connect heart valve prosthesis that can be quickly and easily implanted during a surgical procedure is provided. The heart valve includes a substantially non-expandable, non-compressible prosthetic valve and a plastically-expandable frame, thereby enabling attachment to the annulus without sutures. A small number of guide sutures may be provided for aortic...

Prosthetic devices, systems and methods for replacing heart valves
Exemplary embodiments provide a valve prosthesis for deployment at an annulus of a heart valve. The valve prosthesis includes a series of connected loops that form a looped structure for placement in the annulus. The loops include a first set of fastening mechanisms that extends radially outward over the annular ring...

Devices and methods for heart valve treatment
Devices and methods for treating heart valves include members that assist the valve in closing during at least a portion of the cardiac cycle. Such devices include members configured to alter the shape of a valve annulus, reposition at least one papillary muscle, and/or plug an orifice of the valve so...

Prosthetic heart valve frame with flexible commissures
A prosthetic heart valve can include a valve frame having a wireform portion and a stent portion. The wireform and stent portions can be undetachably coupled together via a plurality of upright struts so as to form a one-piece prosthetic heart valve frame. Alternatively, a self-expanding wireform portion and a balloon-expandable...

Replacement heart valves, delivery devices and methods
A replacement heart valve and method of treating valve insufficiency includes an expandable frame configured to engage a native valve annulus. A valve body is coupled to the frame. The valve body can include a leaflet portion and possibly a skirt portion. A portion of the frame has a foreshortening portion...

Stent features for collapsible prosthetic heart valves
A prosthetic heart valve includes a stent having an expanded condition and a collapsed condition. The stent includes a plurality of distal cells, a plurality of proximal cells, a plurality of support struts coupling the proximal cells to the distal cells, and at least one support post connected to a plurality...

Prosthesis for repairing heart valves
The present invention relates to a prosthesis and a method for extending the valve leaflets (a, b, c) of a heart valve () using the prosthesis (). The prosthesis () comprises at least two strip elements (-), each of which has two opposed ends (a, b, a, b, a, b) and...

Percutaneous transcatheter repair of heart valves
Apparatus, systems, and methods are provided for repairing heart valves through percutaneous transcatheter delivery and fixation of annuloplasty rings to heart valves. An annuloplasty ring includes an outer hollow member including a plurality of segments. Adjacent segments cooperate with one another to change the outer hollow member from an elongate insertion...

Wireless hemodynamic monitoring system integrated with implantable heart valves
Described is a wireless hemodynamic monitoring system that is integrated with implantable cardiac devices. The system includes at least one sensory component that is adapted to measure one or more hemodynamic parameters inside a cardiac chamber of a subject. At least one transceiver is attached with the sensory component to transmit...

Prosthetic heart valves, scaffolding structures, and systems and methods for implantation of same
Prosthetic valves and their component parts are described, as are prosthetic valve delivery devices and methods for their use. The prosthetic valves are particularly adapted for use in percutaneous aortic valve replacement procedures. The delivery devices are particularly adapted for use in minimally invasive surgical procedures....

Methods and devices for delivery of prosthetic heart valves and other prosthesis
Prosthetic valves and their component parts are described, as are prosthetic valve delivery devices and methods for their use. The prosthetic valves are particularly adapted for use in percutaneous aortic valve replacement procedures.
