Evaluation multimodale du processus de cicatrisation des dispositifs de fermeture percutanée des communications inter-atriales

Abstract : The percutaneous device closure is the gold treatment of atrial septal defect (ASD). After implantation, device healing is classically expected following several months; however, an incomplete or partial covering of the device may be observed without a full knowledge of the underlying mechanisms. In this thesis we studied the healing of these intracardiac prostheses, focusing on the covering and endothelialization processes of devices, approach through a translational approach including in vitro experiments, chronic animal model and clinical study. At the end of this work, it is possible to conclude that 1) there are cases of long-term complications after closure of CIA, related to a lack of recovery of the device, 2) in a large cohort of pediatric with a follow up of up to at 18 years after implantation, the incidence of these complications is low 3) animal models, used alone, can not suffice to explain or improve the understanding of this complex process, 4) there is no significant differences in the covering process between the 3 prostheses analyzed during this work, 5) a non-invasive and individualized assessment of prosthetic recovery, using imaging techniques, is a promising perspective with significant potential for clinical translation . These data show that a better understanding of device healing process needs the joint undertake of basic and clinical studies. Moreover, the development of tools for individualized assessment of device covering should be pursued in parallel, due to their high translational potential, in order to optimize patient management.
