As late as fifteen years ago the intracardiac catheter was only used for diagnostic purposes. Since then it has also been established as a therapeutic method. The latest studies have shown that the reduction in convalescence that normally follows a catheter-interventional implantation of aortic valves by transcatheter aortic valve implantation is less significant in comparison to that of a cardiac surgery operation. It is expected that such minimal-invasive technologies will grow to a great extent, also helping to reduce socio-economic costs for the European health care system. Patients of higher ages with acquired cardiac defects or children with congenital cardiac defects of heart valves, especially of the pulmonary valve, are currently the main target groups. We present an alternative and optimized mechanism for stent placement and similar therapeutical interventions. This project focuses on the manipulation unit and tube system. It carries out a highly precise and repeatable linear motion. Ergonomic requirements are taken into account. Furthermore a possibility to support the linear motion by minimal strain is presented. The product is designed for disposable applications but is generally also suitable for long-term applications.
