Vasoview 6 Pro Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting System

Refined design via input from users of previous Vasoview devices

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

Inspired by Experience

The Vasoview 6 Pro Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting System was designed by Vasoview 6 users who performed vessel harvesting every day. This valuable hands-on expertise provided integral insights into creating a system that can help to shorten the learning curve.

This simplified system offers:

  • Technology from within allowing for proximal and distal CO2 insufflation
  • Highly hemostatic cauterization and ligation with Bisector Bipolar Ligating Forcep tips
  • Handle controls and bundling of cables to eliminate wrapping or tangling
  • Streamlined design that’s easy to use

Vasoview 6 Pro Endoscope

Extended efficacy

The Vasoview 6 Pro is primarily indicated for patients undergoing endoscopic vessel harvesting   for arterial bypass. Its 7 mm Extended Length Endoscope and Dissection Tip allows for:

  • Visualization of a surgical cavity
  • Dissection in endoscopic- and other minimally invasive surgical procedures
  • Access for vessel harvesting

Depend on effortless dissection

Our conical dissection tip allows you to create a working tunnel quickly, easily and smoothly.

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 coronary artery bypass graft surgery.

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

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]
