Ever since endoscopic saphenous vein harvesting has become a gold standard for coronary artery bypass surgeries, MAQUET Cardiovascular, probably the worldwide leader in the field, has been improving its popular endoscopic harvesting system. The company has just announced the launch in the U.S. of its new VASOVIEW 6 PRO:
The VASOVIEW 6 PRO system has improved ergonomics and delivers a higher level of performance than the previous VASOVIEW 6 product. These product updates may help reduce procedure time and shorten the learning curve for vessel harvesting, thereby optimizing patient outcomes. Additionally, each VASOVIEW 6 PRO system includes MAQUET’s VASOSHIELD Pressure Controlling Syringe, which allows clinicians to adjust and limit pressure in controlled increments when preparing a vessel for grafting during coronary artery bypass procedures. Protection from overdistension helps optimize conduit quality by protecting harvested vessels. Uncontrolled, high distension pressure has been shown to injure the vessel’s endothelium, potentially affecting long-term graft patency.
The VASOVIEW 6 PRO Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting System offers a simplified and larger BiSECTOR rotating carriage, as well as a larger-profile cutting toggle and C-Ring slider to facilitate easy operation. Additional features include:
• Original, streamlined Dissection Tip – Designed for ease of dissection, improved tunnel creation, and optimum clarity.
• BiSECTORTM Bipolar Ligating Forceps – Designed to provide highly hemostatic cauterization, increased extension, and full 360º rotation for superior flexibility and maneuverability.
• CO2 Insufflation – Designed to create clear, long tunnel views, using innovative focal distal insufflation for further-reaching visualization.
• Intuitive Handle Design – Built in ergonomically designed controls are easy to use and provide excellent maneuverability.
• Simplified attachment system – Cables consolidated into single bundle.
