The National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Health and Human Services, is contemplating the grant of a worldwide exclusive license to practice the inventions embodied in: SUMMARY: Transcatheter Coronary Sinus Mitral Valve Annuloplasty Procedure And Coronary Artery And Myocardial Protection Device. Transcatheter Coronary Sinus Mitral Valve Annuloplasty Procedure and Coronary Artery and Myocardial Protection Device with ‘‘Landing Zone’’. disorders, with an estimated prevalence of approximately 1.7% in the United States, increasing with age to approximately 9.3% in those over the age of 75. MR is classified as primary (also known as ‘‘organic’’) when principally due to a structural or degenerative abnormality of the mitral valve (MV), whether of the leaflets, chordae tendineae, papillary muscles, or mitral annulus. Secondary (also known as functional) MR occurs in the absence of organic MV disease, usually from left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. It is more common than primary MR and is associated with a worse prognosis (compounded by the underlying cardiomyopathy), and (in contrast to primary MR) the benefits of MV surgery are uncertain. The MV consists of two leaflets (anterior and posterior) sitting within the annulus (see picture below). The posterior mitral leaflet originates from the left atrial (LA) endocardium. A subvalvular apparatus, comprising two papillary muscles (anterolateral and posteromedial) arising from the LV myocardium and the chordae tendineae, supports the leaflets. LV dilation due to ischemic or nonischemic cardiomyopathy secondarily impairs leaflet coaptation of a structurally PO 00000 AGENCY: A Device To Protect Coronary Arteries Against Compression During Transcatheter Mitral Valve Annuloplasty (PMVA).

ADDRESSES: Requests for a copy of any unpublished patent application, inquiries, objections to this notice, comments and other requests relating to the contemplated license should be directed to: Michael Shmilovich, Esq., CLP, Senior Licensing and Patent Manager, 31 Center Drive Room 4A29, MSC2479, Bethesda, MD 20892–2479, phone number 301–435–5019, or shmilovm@mail.nih.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice is published in accordance with 35 U.S.C. 209(c)(1) and 37 CFR 404.7(a)(1)(i).

Specifically, LV dysfunction and remodeling lead to apical and lateral papillary muscle displacement, resulting in leaflet tethering, dilation and flattening of the mitral annulus, and reduced valve closing forces. The subject mitral repair system devices are primarily intended to treat secondary mitral regurgitation. The proposed mitral cerclage with coronary artery protection is an approach capable of overcoming many of the problems that exist with existing devices namely allowing a larger subset of patients to be treated compared to other coronary sinus devices, providing a full annuloplasty type device which is flexible enough to preserve annular motion, reduce hospitalization costs and shorten recovery time. The associated method closely resembles the surgical placement of a full annuloplasty ring.
