A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11931260B2) outlines a method for implanting a prosthetic mitral valve in a patient using a system of multiple catheters. The method involves engaging the catheters to a deployment frame system comprising clamps and frames, and manipulating the system to deliver the prosthetic mitral valve to the heart of the patient. This process includes delivering an anchor assembly to the mitral valve annulus and engaging a valve assembly with the anchor assembly for implantation.

The patent claims detail various aspects of the method, including manipulating the frames parallel to each other, unclamping and rotating catheters, and using clamps with actuators for catheter deflection. The method also involves clamping multiple clamps to the second frame and translating them along the first frame to move catheters simultaneously. Additionally, the patent mentions adjusting control wires through the catheters to control the expansion of the anchor assembly, with clamps having mechanisms for tension adjustments. These claims highlight the intricate steps and components involved in the precise implantation of a prosthetic mitral valve using a specialized system of catheters and frames.
