Arterial cannulae are intended to deliver oxygenated blood to the arterial vasculature. Medtronic understands the importance of gentle flow in the often fragile aorta and we offer a number of different product variations to facilitate a variety of surgical techniques and patient anatomies. Our Select 3D line of cannulae features fluted tips which help diffuse and disperse blood flow while our EOPA® Cannulae have elongated kink-resistant bodies to deliver high flow rates with minimal pressure differential. Arterial cannulae are available in a variety of tip configurations, with or without wire winding and in different lengths to meet your specific needs.
Soft-Flow Arterial Cannulae
Designed to be gentle on the aorta and easy to insert, Soft-Flow®* arterial cannulae help you proceed with confidence during cardiac surgery procedures. The original Soft-Flow cannulae were a popular choice for cardiac surgeons and perfusionists for many years — now they're back.
The EOPA® (Elongated One-Piece Arterial Cannula) is available with either a dilator tip introducer designed to be placed over a 0.038” guidewire or with a blunt tip introducer. The elongated wire-wound body provides versatility for a variety of insertion techniques EOPA 3D®. The EOPA 3D Arterial Cannula features a unique tapered tip configuration that diffuses the flow through multiple outlets and reduces exit velocity. The elongated, wire-wound body provides versatility for a variety of insertion techniques.
Femoral cannulae provide greater versatility of cannulation techniques to meet the needs of the changing patient population and the desire for smaller thoracic incisions. Designed to be placed in the femoral vein or artery, Medtronic Femoral Cannulae are ideally suited for both percutaneous and direct insertion. The unique, flat, wire-wound, thin-walled construction of the Bio-Medicus™ Cannulae maximizes flow rates and cannula flexibility. Our product offerings in both pediatric and adult sizes ensure the availability of a cannula to meet your specific needs.
Bio-Medicus Multi-Stage Femoral Venous
The Bio-Medicus™ Multi-Stage features multiple drainage ports allowing for optimal drainage of the entire venous circulation by accessing the SVC, atrium and the IVC. The extended length introducer with new, smother transition zone promotes ease of percutaneous femoral vein cannulation and advancement through tortuous venous anatomy. The Bio-Medicus Multi-Stage is 60 cm in length and available in 19, 21 and 25 Fr sizes. These cannulae can be inserted percutaneously over a 0.038 guidewire.
Bio-Medicus NextGen Femoral Arterial or Jugular Venous
These enhanced Bio-Medicus™ NextGen femoral arterial or jugular venous adult cannulae offer a flexible kink-resistant thin-wall design that promotes maximum flow rates. A re-engineered tip design eases insertion and features a one-piece non-phthalate PVC introducer, a reinforced non-step transition zone and smoother side ports. A silicone friction-fit cap and introducer provide improved function as well.
The percutaneous-style introducer is now standard on all sizes — along with a repositionable radiopaque suture ring. A shortened clamp site eases tubing management and is equipped with a 3/8 inch standard connection site. Order a kit complete with everything you need or find individual cannula options
