Cardioroot Woven Vascular Graft


Woven Vascular Grafts

Cardioroot graft delivers a new option for the repair or reconstruction of the ascending aorta.


Anatomically correct shape

The design of Cardioroot mimics the anatomy and blood flow dynamics of the natural sinuses of Valsalva.[1],[2] [3]

Unique uncrimped section that does not stretch:

  • allows for easy sewing of valve remnants, or prosthetic valve within the tube to simplify the procedure[4]
  • facilitates estimation of the length required for placement of valve remnants or prosthetic valve
  • can be precisely trimmed and shaped in case of remodeling technique procedures.

3 reference lines act as a guide for prosthetic valve or valve remnants anastomosis.

Valve sparing procedures

The proximal collar can be used for prosthetic valve sewing or trimmed/inverted for valve sparing procedures.
