Vascular Graft Tunneler Instrumentation

Vascular Graft Tunneler Instrumentation

Innovative, low profile tunneling system

Overview

Designed to minimize the soft tissue trauma associated with tunneling [1]

The Vascular Graft Tunneling System is designed to create a subcutaneous tunnel for the placement of a vascular graft in both peripheral and AV access applications.  While the Tunneler System can be used with a graft that does not feature a Slider Graft Deployment System (GDS), this proprietary tunneling system was designed to be most effective when used in conjunction with a GDS graft.  The Tunneler System and its components are made of surgical-grade stainless steel and are designed for multiple reuse when properly maintained.
