As a result, pressure applied by any prosthetic device in the coronary sinus (such as tension on the annuloplasty device) can compress the underlying coronary artery and induce myocardial ischemia or infarction. This invention pertains to devices and methods that avoid constricting coronary artery branches during coronary sinus-based annuloplasty. These devices and methods protect coronary artery branches from constriction during transsinus mitral annuloplasty. The device protects a coronary vessel from compression during mitral annuloplasty by extending an annuloplasty element, such as a tensioning device, at least partially through the coronary sinus over a coronary artery. The device is a surgically sterile bridge configured for placement within the coronary sinus at a location where the coronary sinus passes over a coronary artery, so that the protection device provides a support for a mitral annuloplasty element, such as a compressive prosthesis, including a tension element when it is placed under tension. The protection device has an arch of sufficient rigidity and dimensions to support the tensioning element over the coronary artery, redistribute tension away from an underlying coronary artery, and inhibit application of pressure to the underlying artery, for example when an annuloplasty tension element is placed under tension during mitral annuloplasty. In particular, the protective device can be a support interposed in the coronary sinus between the annuloplasty device and the coronary artery. The device may be substantially tubular so that the tensioning element is contained within the protective device and supported in spaced relationship to the coronary artery. An arch may be configured to extend between a proximal end and a distal end that are substantially collinear with one another so that the ends form stabilizing members such as feet that retain the bridge in position over the coronary artery. E–249–2009/3 Another embodiment of the cerclage protection device is a combination with a cerclage tension element that can be used to facilitate transcatheter mitral valve implantation. The transcatheter strategy includes a ‘‘valve-in-ring’’ wherein a cerclage annuloplasty is first performed. During the same session or during a separate procedure, a transcatheter mitral valve implantation could be performed that would take advantage of the cerclage annuloplasty system to serve as a visual and a VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:14 Mar 27, 2017 Jkt 241001 mechanical ‘‘landing zone’’ for mitral valve implantation. A cerclage annuloplasty ring would allow outward expansion of the mitral valve to achieve fixation. However, without the cerclage protection device in place, such a strategy would cause compression of an entrapped coronary artery. This new embodiment of the protection device protects coronary arteries not from extrinsic compression but from ‘‘insideout’’ compression, thereby allowing cerclage to be the first step for transcatheter mitral valve implantation. It also allows the latter to be employed as second-stage adjunct or bailout for inadequate cerclage mitral valve annuoplasty. The prospective exclusive license will be royalty bearing and will comply with the terms and conditions of 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR 404.7. The prospective exclusive license may be granted unless, within fifteen (15) days from the date of this published notice, NIH receives written evidence and argument that establishes that the grant of the license would not be consistent with the requirements of 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR 404.7. Properly filed competing applications for a license filed in response to this notice will be treated as objections to the contemplated license. Comments and objections submitted in response to this notice will not be made available for public inspection, and, to the extent permitted by law, will not be released under the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552.
