A method of assembling a heart valve is provided for use with an inner and a spreadable outer stent. The outer stent is mounted onto a spreading tool including a spreading ring, and expander, and a plunger. A protective cap is placed over the outer stent and plunger to prevent relative r
5662705 Test device for and method of testing rapid assembly tissue heart valve September 2, 1997
A method of manufacturing and testing a tissue heart valve during open heart surgery is disclosed. A piece of autologous tissue from the body of the patient is precisely cut according to the size of the open annulus remaining after excision of the patient's heart valve, with a plurality
5653749 Prefabricated, sterile and disposable kits for the rapid assembly of a tissue heart valve August 5, 1997
This invention relates generally to a rapid assembly, concentric and flexible mating stent, tissue heart valve which can be assembled from prefabricated, sterile kits by a non-surgeon in the limited time available in an operating room. The kits provide the necessary tools and apparatus
5612885 Method for constructing a heart valve stent March 18, 1997
A method for constructing stents for autologous tissue heart valves is provided. The method includes creating a stent profile primitive which is rotated about a first axis to create a solid stent blank having inner and outer surfaces. First and second splines are created and intersected
5609600 Tissue cutting die March 11, 1997
The present invention provides a novel tissue cutting device which accurately cuts the tissue to a predetermined configuration in a minimal amount of time, and where the tissue may then be used in an autologous heart valve. The disposable tissue cutting die of the present invention is
5584878 Test device for and method of testing rapid tissue heart valve December 17, 1996
A concentric mating stent tissue heart valve which is capable of being assembled with a variety of tissue sources is provided. A tester for rapidly testing a tissue heart valve is provided comprising a substantially transparent viewing chamber having a plurality of size-specific moun
5571174 Method of assembling a tissue heart valve November 5, 1996
A method for assembling a concentric mating stent tissue heart valve which is capable of being assembled with a variety of tissue sources is provided. A plurality of prefabricated kits are also provided which enable the valve to be assembled with autogenous tissue in the limited time,
5531784 Test device for and method of testing rapid assembly tissue heart valve July 2, 1996
A tissue heart valve test device which is capable of testing the valves in a rapid manner before implantation to ensure that there are no unacceptable leaks or flaws. The test device enables the valve to be tested in the operating room during the open heart procedure. The test device
5522885 Assembly tooling for an autologous tissue heart valve June 4, 1996
An assembly tool for a bioprosthetic heart valve is disclosed. The tool assembles a valve having an inner and a spreadable outer stent, and includes a spreading ring with an elevated lip to hold the spread outer stent, an expander having fingers which contact the outer stent base to
5509930 Stentless heart valve April 23, 1996
A stentless heart valve assembled from autologous tissue is provided. The tissue is cut into a rectangular shape, folded, and stapled at several locations to form the cusps of the valve. The outer walls of the valve are pinched at the midpoint of each cusp to prevent the cusps from adher
5489298 Rapid assembly concentric mating stent, tissue heart valve with enhanced clamping and tissue exp February 6, 1996
A concentric mating stent tissue heart valve which is capable of being assembled with a variety of tissue sources is provided. The valve comprises at least one piece of tissue clamped between an inner and an outer stent. The outer stent is configured with a plurality of spaced posts
5489296 Heart valve measurement tool February 6, 1996
The present invention provides a heart valve measurement tool in the form of an obturator. The obturator is specifically configured to measure the size of the annulus of the heart to be fitted with a prosthetic heart valve. A plurality of obturators of varying sizes are utilized to d
5425741 Tissue cutting die June 20, 1995
The present invention provides a novel tissue cutting device for autologous tissue heart valves which accurately cuts the tissue to a predetermined configuration in a minimal amount of time. The disposable tissue cutting die of the present invention is comprised of a cover, a base member
