Abstract

A medical device is disclosed for performing procedures on anatomical structures, including various tissue, body lumen and/or cavity inside a body of a patient. In one particular application, the medical device can be used through minimally invasive access to position a guidewire around the myocardium of the heart, so that other devices, instruments, and/or tools can be introduced over the guidewire. The medical device generally includes first and second positioning assemblies, where the first positioning assembly is introduced to a target area inside the body of a patient and used to surround an anatomical structure, and the second positioning assembly is used to engage a guidewire of the first positioning assembly through a retriever member. The retriever member is used to pull one end of the guidewire of the first positioning assembly around the target tissue and out of the target area.
