WHY ARREST A FAILING HEART?

With more than 800,000+ CABG procedures globally each year, your opportunity to perform beating heart surgery isn’t going away, it’s increasing.1 As patient populations expand, you’re faced with treating sicker coronary patients who require complex therapies.

Find the right procedure, for the right patient.

CONSIDER PUMP-ASSISTED BEATING HEART

DOWNLOAD BENEFITS

Looking for improved outcomes? Consider Pump-Assist Beating Heart (PABH) as an option for your coronary patients. PABH includes the use of cardiopulmonary bypass, without arresting the patient’s heart or cross clamping the aorta. Read below to learn about the many benefits of PABH.

PABH Clinical Benefits

PABH OFFERS MANY CLINICAL BENEFITS

Cardiac surgeons are discovering that PABH offers better outcomes with specific patients. Data from several clinical studies support these improved outcomes.
