Medtronic provides a superior product offering and clinical expertise in CABG procedures, including CABG with CPB, OPCAB, and MICS CABG procedures.
CABG has come full circle. Prior to the introduction of CPB, CABG procedures were performed on a beating heart. However, the emergence of CPB and methods of myocardial protection revolutionized CABG procedures by providing a bloodless, motionless heart. CPB has allowed surgeons to perform a safe operation with excellent graft patency rates.
Despite the success of CABG with CPB, there are well-documented risks associated with CPB. Now Beating Heart CABG techniques and technologies are available that make the procedure easier and safer, with better technical outcomes.
Medtronic, in collaboration with strategic partners and physicians, is pioneering efforts to reduce the invasiveness of CABG surgery by offering innovative systems to enable your beating heart techniques.
Medtronic’s commitment to leadership and innovation in the advancement of cardiac surgery reaches a new pinnacle by offering enabling technologies to position and stabilize the beating heart while requiring only a small thoracotomy for access.
MICS techniques are becoming mainstream procedures today. Patients undergoing Minimally Invasive CABG receive similar outcomes to the conventional beating heart procedure, with the added benefit of eliminating the median sternotomy and the associated morbidities1,2 as well as the possibility of decreased length of stay and recovery time.2
Medtronic is your trusted partner in developing, enhancing, and refining your MICS expertise to help you compete in the changing cardiac surgery environment. Our broad MICS product portfolio and unmatched clinical and scientific expertise address a wide range of minimally invasive therapies to help you treat cardiovascular diseases.
