|20110313436||IN VIVO DEVICE FOR IMPROVING DIASTOLIC VENTRICULAR FUNCTION - The present invention provides an in vivo device for improving diastolic function of the heart, comprising: at least one elastic component that may be operatively connected to the external surface of the left or right ventricle of the heart by means of connecting elements, wherein said elastic component comprises essentially longitudinal members arranged such that the lateral separation therebetween may be increased or decreased in response to elastic deformation of said elastic component, and wherein said essentially longitudinal members are arranged such that said elastic component is curved in both the vertical and horizontal planes, such that its inner surface may be adapted to the curvature of the external ventricular surface of the heart, such that said elastic component is capable of exerting both radially outward expansive and tangentially-directed forces on the external surface of the cardiac ventricle.||12-22-2011|
|20110257461||VENTRICULAR FUNCTION ASSISTING DEVICE AND A METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR IMPLANTING IT - The present invention provides a ventricular function assisting device configured to be implanted in a heart ventricle designed in a form of flower-like configuration comprising two or more petals attached at a base section, said petals comprise elastic elements and/or portions capable of being elastically bent in radial directions and optionally also in sideway and/or longitudinal directions, which allow changing the state of the device between: i) a folded conformation, in which its petals are radially pressed inwardly towards each other to assume a reduced diameter of its flower-like configuration; and ii) a deployed conformation, in which the petals are opened in a radial outward direction as the device is discharged from the delivery tube or sheath into a heart ventricle and implanted thereinside in a preloaded state.||10-20-2011|
|20110092761||Ventricular function assisting devices and methods of use thereof - Devices and methods are provided for assisting in the ventricular function of a treated heart, and tools for delivering and attaching elements of said devices to the wall of the heart. In general the devices are designed to assist in the ventricular function of the heart by utilizing elastic, and/or magnetic, elements designed to apply radially and/or tangentially directed forces over the wall of the heart, and/or alter the pressure conditions inside ventricle(s) of the heart. Embodiments may utilize restrictive elements which may optionally be attached over the heart during the implantation procedure, or at a later time, by changing the mode of operation of an implanted device.||04-21-2011|
|20100022821||Method and system for improving diastolic function of the heart - The present invention provides a system for improving diastolic function of the heart comprising elastic elements and attachment elements, wherein said elastic elements and said attachment elements are configured such that they are capable of being interconnected to form a chain formed of an alternating series of said elastic elements and said attachment elements, and wherein said attachment elements are adapted to be anchored in the wall of the heart and with option for drug delivery to the wall of the heart. The invention further provides devices, methods and kits, for mounting the ventricular function assisting device of the invention.||01-28-2010|
