Abstract

See full text

Devices and methods for increasing the volume of blood pumped by a heart muscle are disclosed. A therapeutic catheter in accordance with the present invention may comprise an elongate shaft having a proximal end, a distal end, and a lumen extending through at least a portion thereof. The therapeutic catheter may further include a cutter having a cutter lumen fixed to the distal end of the elongate shaft, and a mooring shaft slidingly disposed within the lumen of the elongate shaft. A method in accordance with the present invention may include the steps of engaging a muscle of a donor site with a portion of the mooring shaft, penetrating the muscle of the donor site with the cutter to form a muscle tendril, withdrawing the muscle tendril from the muscle of the donee site, positioning the distal end of the therapeutic catheter proximate a pit defined by the tissue of a donee site, inserting the muscle tendril into the tissue of the donee site, and disengaging the mooring shaft from the muscle tendril.
