Percutaneous heart valve delivery systems
Embodiments described herein address the need for improved catheter devices for delivery, repositioning and/or percutaneous retrieval of the percutaneously implanted heart valves. One embodiment employs a plurality of spring-loaded arms releasably engaged with a stent frame for controlling expansion for valve deployment. Another embodiment employs a plurality of filaments passing through...

Stents for prosthetic heart valves and methods of making same
A single piece stent construction having a plurality of commissure posts, each of which extends upwardly from a solid ring along a bend line and generally along a central longitudinal axis of the stent....

Apparatus and method for implanting collapsible/expandable prosthetic heart valves
Apparatus for delivering a prosthetic heart valve into a patient by means that are less invasive than conventional open-chest, open-heart surgery. The prosthetic valve may be collapsed while in a delivery device. When the valve reaches the desired implant site in the patient, the valve can be released from the delivery...

Rapid deployment prosthetic heart valves
A heart valve prosthesis that can be quickly and easily implanted during a surgical procedure is provided. The prosthetic valve comprises a support structure that is deployed at a treatment site. The prosthetic valve further comprises a valve member configured to be quickly connected to the support structure. The support structure...

Protein based materials, plastic albumin devices and related methods
Medical devices with a plastic albumin body with a defined three dimensional shape that are particularly suitable for pressure equalization tubes. The plastic albumin body can be a unitary substantially monolithic body of albumin. The plastic albumin body has an antibacterial property such that it is resistant to bacterial adhesions and/or...

Collapsible/expandable prosthetic heart valves with non-expanding stent posts and retrieval features
A frame structure for a collapsible and re-expandable prosthetic heart valve. The frame structure includes an annular annulus portion that is configured for implanting in or near a patient's native heart valve annulus. This annulus portion of the frame structure may include a plurality of annularly spaced commissure post structures interconnected...

Delivery catheter with distal moving capsule for transapical prosthetic heart valve delivery
Heart valve delivery systems and methods of delivering and implanting heart valves using delivery catheters are disclosed. The delivery systems can include a handle assembly with a rotatable control knob and a catheter including an introducer shaft, an intermediate shaft extending from the handle assembly, an inner shaft extending from the...

Holders for prosthetic heart valves
An improved holder and storage system for prosthetic heart valves that pre-shields or pre-constricts the commissure posts of the valve to prevent suture looping. Pre-shielding and pre-constriction mean at the time of manufacture, so that the valves are stored with the commissure posts shielded and/or constricted. The holders may have solid...

Thorascopic heart valve repair method and apparatus
An instrument for performing thorascopic repair of heart valves includes a shaft for extending through the chest cavity and into a heart chamber providing access to a valve needing repair. A movable tip on the shaft is operable to capture a valve leaflet and a needle is operable to penetrate a...

Shockwave valvuloplasty with multiple balloons
Described herein are shock wave devices and methods for the treatment of calcified heart valves. One variation of a shock wave device includes three balloons that are each sized and shaped to fit within a concave portion of a valve cusp when inflated with a liquid and a shock wave source...

Heart valve sealing devices
This disclosure pertains generally to prosthetic devices and related methods for helping to seal native heart valves and prevent or reduce regurgitation therethrough, as well as devices and related methods for implanting such prosthetic devices. In some cases, a spacer having a single anchor can be implanted within a native heart...

In some cases, a spacer having a single anchor can be implanted within a native heart...

Trans-aortic delivery system with containment capsule centering device
Heart valve delivery systems and methods of delivering and implanting heart valves using delivery catheters are disclosed. The delivery systems can include a handle assembly which can include a first control mechanism, a second control mechanism, and a decoupling mechanism. The delivery systems can also include a delivery catheter extending from...

In some cases, a spacer having a single anchor can be implanted within a native heart...

Device for the implantation and fixation of prosthetic valves
A device for the transvascular implantation and fixation of prosthetic heart valves having a self-expanding heart valve stent () with a prosthetic heart valve () at its proximal end is introducible into a patient's main artery. With the objective of optimizing such a device to the extent that the prosthetic heart...

Heart valve sewing cuff
An embodiment of the invention includes a sewing cuff for aortic heart valves that better approximates native anatomy by better mating with the crown-like anatomical annulus. Limiting distortion of the crown-like annulus provides better blood flow and overall valve function and provides a physician greater ease of implantation since native anatomy...

Device for the implantation and fixation of prosthetic valves
A device for the transvascular implantation and fixation of prosthetic heart valves having a self-expanding heart valve stent () with a prosthetic heart valve () at its proximal end is introducible into a patient's main artery. With the objective of optimizing such a device to the extent that the prosthetic heart...

Stents for prosthetic heart valves
A stented valve including a stent structure including a generally tubular body portion having a first end, a second end, an interior area, a longitudinal axis, and a plurality of vertical wires extending generally parallel to the longitudinal axis around a periphery of the body portion, wherein the plurality of vertical...

Bioprosthetic components for an implant, in particular partly crosslinked biological heart valves
Bioprosthetic components based on, or comprising, biological materials for implants, preferably biological heart valves, in particular biological heart valve leaflets, which have only been chemically or thermally stabilized (partly crosslinked) at mechanically stressed points and therefore have zones having different mechanical properties, and to a method for the production thereof....

Stents for prosthetic heart valves
A stented valve including a stent structure having a generally tubular body portion, an interior area, a longitudinal axis, an first end, an second end, and an outer surface; at least one outflow barb extending from the outer surface of the stent adjacent to the first end of the stent structure...
