Heartstring III Proximal Seal System

Heartstring III brings proximal anastomotic technology into the future. A hemostatic seal enables surgeons to eliminate partial occlusion clamps and minimize aortic manipulation during proximal anastomosis that can lead to complications.[1]

When it comes to a stroke, leave nothing to chance

The Heartstring III proximal anastomotic seal technology allows for clampless hemostasis during proximal anastomoses when performing CABG procedures. It allows hand suturing without using either the cross clamp or the side-biting clamp. Minimizing the manipulation of the ascending aorta reduces the risk of neurologic complications.[1]

Benefits

Minimizing the manipulation of the ascending aorta reduces the risk of neurologic complications. In patients with minimal aortic diseases the cerebral emboli number is significantly reduced when the Heartstring III device is used.[1]

Patency

Allows use of the surgeon’s own hand sewn and angled take-off technique for optimal anastomotic quality and procedural flexibility.

Ease-of-use

The loading device and aortic cutter make Heartstring III seal placement fast and easy.

Heartstring III Proximal Seal System consists of 3 components

Aortic Cutter
