Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9808456A1] This invention is methods and apparatus for direct coronary revascularization wherein a transmyocardial passageway (10) is formed between a chamber of the heart (LV) and a coronary blood vessel (CBV) to permit blood to flow therebetween. In some embodiments, the transmyocardial passageway (10) is formed between a chamber of the heart (LV) and a coronary vein (CV). The invention includes unstent transmyocardial passageways (10), as well as transmyocardial passageways (10) wherein protrusive stent devices (90) extend from the transmyocardial passageway (10) into an adjacent coronary vessel (CBV) or chamber of the heart (LV). The apparatus of the present invention includes protrusive stent devices (90) for stent of transmyocardial passageways (10), intraluminal valve devices (40) for valving of transmyocardial passageways (10), intra-cardiac valve devices (80) for valving of transmyocardial passageways (10), endogenous tissue valves (50) for valving of transmyocardial passageways (10), and ancillary apparatus for use in conjunction therewith.
