Bio-Medicus NextGen Cannulae

Cardiac Surgery

Overview

Bio-Medicus™ NextGen cannulae are available in femoral venous, femoral arterial, and jugular venous configurations. All NextGen cannulae are engineered for smooth transitions and ease of insertion. They feature more than thirty enhancements to the original Bio-Medicus cannulae.  

Indications  

These devices are to be used by a trained physician only. Cannulae are used to cannulate vessels, perfuse vessels or organs, and/or connect with accessory extracorporeal equipment. The cannula introducer is intended to facilitate proper insertion and placement of the appropriately-sized cannula within the vessel for cardiopulmonary bypass. The Bio-Medicus™ cannula (18-cm [7.09-in] tip length models) may be used in either the femoral position as an arterial delivery cannula or in the jugular position as a venous return cannula. This product is intended for use up to 6 hours.

Key Features

  • The one-piece, non-phthalate PVC introducer has an elongated taper to dilate over a longer distance.
  • The no-step transition zone and fingerlet tip design facilitate insertion.  
  • Smoother side port design improves the insertion.
  • Thin-wall design promotes maximum flow rates.
  • A second set of side ports accommodates positioning in hepatic veins.

Hemostasis Management

We have increased the friction fit between the cap and introducer to help prevent backing out when inserting or advancing in the vessel. The introducer hub’s smaller guidewire opening also offers a 75% reduction in blood loss.1
