Extended Length Antegrade Cardioplegia Cannula: Solutions for Minimally Invasive Techniques
The most widely used method of delivering cardioplegia to the myocardium is via antegrade cardioplegia cannulae. Minimally invasive techniques, with emphasis on MiMVR, require the antegrade cannula body to be extended in length, as the approach is via peripheral access by right lateral thoracotomy.
Surge Cardiovascular responded to the needs of surgeons adopting progressive operative techniques by developing the MicroSurge Extended Length Antegrade Cardioplegia Cannula. This product family comes in both a vented and non-vented version, with a length of 12.5” and two lumen size options.
The vented version of the Extended Length Antegrade is an exclusive 2-in-1 design by Surge that further allows surgeons to efficiently deliver cardioplegia solution and aspirate air. This unique design combines both an extended length antegrade cannulae with a secondary lumen for venting application, eliminating the need to source two separate components. It features a low-profile, distal vent adaptor with primary parallel lumen over the entire length which enables the cardiac surgeon to vent at the most distal aspect of the cannula, limiting the risk of re-infusion of air emboli by separation.
The MicroSurge Extended Length Antegrade Cannula family provides a variety of benefits while continuing to maximize visualization through progressive operative approaches. This product is the high-quality and cost-effective solution to accommodate minimally invasive procedures.
