Vasoview 6 Pro Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting System

High quality conduit harvesting of the saphenous vein and radial artery using ergonomic improvements for greater efficiency.

The Vasoview 6 Pro Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting System's design is inspired by the hands-on experience of Vasoview 6 users who performed vessel harvesting every day.

Vasoview 6 Pro Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting System for quality conduit harvesting of the saphenous vein and radial artery

Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting with Vasoview Systems can improve patient outcomes due to:

  • A less-invasive 2 cm (1 inch) incision
  • Significantly less risk of infection and wound complications [1]
  • More rapid recovery and far less postoperative pain [1]
  • Improved patient satisfaction [1]
  • Efficient harvest of either saphenous vein or radial artery

The integrated system tools provide efficiency and ergonomics for high quality conduit harvesting of the saphenous vein and radial artery. The technology within this system allows for proximal and distal CO2 insufflation and includes Bisector Bipolar Ligating Forcep tips for highly hemostatic cauterization and ligation.

With handle controls and bundling of cables to eliminate wrapping or tangling, the streamlined design is easy to use and may help to shorten the learning curve as well as duration of the procedure.

Vasoview 6 Pro Endoscope

7 mm Extended Length Endoscope and Dissection Tip

The 7 mm Extended Length Endoscope with Dissection Tip is indicated for visualization of a surgical cavity and dissection in endoscopic procedures and other minimally invasive surgical procedures allowing access for vessel harvesting, and is primarily indicated for patients undergoing endoscopic vessel harvesting for arterial bypass.

Getinge Vasoview 6 Pro Dissection Tip

Extremity procedures include tissue dissection/vessel harvesting along the saphenous vein for use in coronary artery bypass grafting and peripheral artery bypass or radial artery for use in CABG.

In the past, one long incision was made from the ankle to the groin; this procedure is called an open procedure. It is highly invasive, often caused patients more pain than their chest incision, and resulted in a long scar.

An alternative, less invasive technique to the open procedure is called “bridging”. Bridging enables harvesters to gain access to the saphenous vein through three or four smaller incisions of about three inches each.

About EVH

EVH is minimally invasive and uses special instruments to view and remove the blood vessel. EVH usually requires one small incision about 2 cm long. The EVH procedure is performed at the beginning of heart surgery and can be used for the following vessels:

  • The greater saphenous vein, which runs the length of the leg
  • The radial artery, which runs from the wrist to the elbow in the arm
Getinge EVH

Benefits of EVH

There is generally little patient discomfort from endoscopic vessel harvesting, especially when compared to open or bridging procedures. In clinical studies, some important benefits have been shown in EVH including:

  • Significantly less risk of infection and wound complications [1]
  • Less postoperative pain and swelling [1]
  • Faster recovery with minimal scarring [1]
  • Greater patient satisfaction [1]
