Alpine Femoral Venous Cannula: Best-in-Class Insertion
Cardiovascular surgeons know inserting a cannula into the femoral vein is a very delicate procedure. Femoral venous cannulae with a blunt introducer tip and a short, stepped transition from introducer to cannula may require increased push force during the insertion. This can cause damage to the guidewire as well as trauma to the patient’s femoral vein; damage surgeons make every effort to avoid.
Surge Cardiovascular’s ALPINE Femoral Venous Cannula features a best-in-class introducer with three distinct characteristics for smooth insertion into the femoral vein with both percutaneous and cut-down approaches: a flexible elongated tip designed to improve percutaneous insertion as well as tracking along the guidewire, an extended graduated taper for smooth dilatation of the vein, and a smooth transition from introducer to cannula body.
The ALPINE Femoral Venous Cannulae provides first-class transitions achieving optimal flow performance with proximal baskets and features 28 slotted drainage holes for greater flow rates. The ElastEon™ construction flaunts the durability of polyurethane and the flexibility and bio-stability of silicone. The ALPINE is available in sizes 20-28 French to accommodate patient size.
