A method for delivering a prosthetic valve to a patients heart having a native valve with a plurality of valve leaflets includes providing a delivery device with a prosthetic valve, advancing the delivery device toward the native valve, and expanding a portion of the prosthetic valve to form a flanged region that is upstream of the valve leaflets. One or more tabs on the prosthetic valve are released so that they expand outward to a position that is transverse to the longitudinal axis of the prosthetic valve. The position of the prosthetic valve is adjusted relative to the valve leaflets and rapid pacing is applied to the patients heart so that the valve leaflets move inward toward the prosthetic valve or the delivery device. The tabs are further released to allow the tabs to move into their final positions.

A prosthetic mitral valve may be anchored in a native mitral valve. The prosthetic mitral valve preferably has a large anterior prosthetic leaflet that spans the entire width of the native anterior leaflet and the anterior prosthetic leaflet moves away from left ventricular outflow tract during systole to create a clear unobstructed outflow path.

A delivery system includes a delivery catheter with a capsule configured to carry a prosthesis and a steering catheter for steering the delivery catheter. The delivery catheter can be advanced through a patients vasculature to a target treatment area. The capsule can be opened and the prosthesis can be deployed into the target treatment area. Additionally, a method for delivering a prosthesis to a target treatment area includes advancing a delivery catheter through a patients vasculature to the target treatment area, steering the delivery catheter toward the target treatment area, opening a capsule on the delivery catheter, and deploying the prosthesis into the target treatment area.

A medical implant (20) includes first and second ring members (22,24), each including a resilient framework (26) having a generally cylindrical form. A tubular sleeve (28) is fixed to the first and second ring members so as to hold the ring members in mutual longitudinal alignment, thereby defining a lumen (32) passing through the ring members. A constricting element (30) is fit around the sleeve at a location intermediate the first and second ring members so as to reduce a diameter of the lumen at the location.

A prosthetic cardiac valve comprises an anchor having an atrial skirt, an annular region, and a ventricular skirt. The prosthetic valve also has a plurality of prosthetic valve leaflets each having a first end and a free end. The first end is coupled with the anchor and the free end is opposite the first end. The prosthetic cardiac valve has an open configuration in which the free ends of the prosthetic valve leaflets are disposed away from one another to allow antegrade blood flow therepast, and a closed configuration in which the free ends of the prosthetic valve leaflets engage one another and substantially prevent retrograde blood flow therepast. The anchor has a collapsed configuration for delivery to the heart and an expanded configuration for anchoring the prosthetic cardiac valve to a patients heart.


A device for loading a prosthesis onto a delivery system includes a first housing having a central bore. One or more actuators on the first housing may be actuated radially inward to selectively compress a discrete portion of the prosthesis disposed in the central bore.


A flow reducing implant for reducing blood flow in a blood vessel having a cross sectional dimension, the flow reducing implant comprising a hollow element adapted for placement in the blood vessel defining a flow passage therethrough, said flow passage comprising at least two sections, one with a larger diameter and one with a smaller diameter, wherein said smaller diameter is smaller than a cross section of the blood vessel. A plurality of tabs anchor, generally parallel to the blood vessel wall, are provided in some embodiments of the invention.

A sequentially deployed prosthetic cardiac valve includes a self-expanding frame having an atrial skirt, a ventricular skirt, and an annular region disposed therebetween. A first anterior tab is disposed on an anterior portion of the frame. A posterior tab is on a posterior portion of the self-expanding frame. The frame may be designed so that any portion may expand sequentially in any desired order. For example, a portion of the first anterior tab and a portion of the posterior tab may partially self-expand first. Next, the first anterior tab may fully self-expand before the posterior tab fully self-expands. The posterior tab may fully self-expand next followed by the ventricular skirt, or the ventricular skirt may self-expand next followed by full expansion of the posterior tab.
