Abstract

An assembly for reshaping a cardiac ventricle in a patient comprising an implantable device for reshaping a ventricle comprising a tether, a non-implantable tool which is detachably connectable to said implantable device and has a proximal portion and a distai portion opposite to said proximal portion; the implantable device further comprises an active anchor adapted to be detachably connected to the distai portion ofthe tool; the active anchor comprises an abutment portion adapted to abut against a str ucture ofthe ventricle; the active anchor ofthe implantable device comprises an adjustrnent device adapted to adjust the tensional state ofthe tether; the distai portion ofthe tool comprises an adjustment key adapted to cooperate with the adjustrnent device of the active anchor; the proximal portion ofthe tool comprises a maneuvering interface which is operatively connectable to said adjustment key for adjusting the tensional state of the tether by acting on the maneuvering interface of the proximal portion of the tool.
