Antegrade cannulae are designed to deliver cardioplegia solution to the heart via the coronary ostia in the normal direction of blood flow (antegrade perfusion). Aortic root cannulae are intended to either aspirate air from the aorta or infuse cardioplegia directly into the aortic root near the aortic valve. Our product breadth ensures the availability of a cannula to meet your specific needs.
DLP® Pediatric Aortic Root Cannulae
These cannulae feature radiopaque tips with 2 side holes, attached to clear bodies. The flanged collar provides a predetermined insertion depth as well as a means of securing the cannula. All cannulae are supplied with a stainless steel introducer needle. Pediatric aortic root cannulae are offered in a shortened 2.5 inch length.
DLP® Cardioplegia Needles
Used to infuse cardioplegia into the aortic root, these needles feature stainless steel tips with a plastic depth stop. These needles are attached to flexible PVC tubing, which includes a drape clamp and female luer.
Retrograde cannulae are designed to deliver cardioplegia solution to the heart via the coronary sinus in the reverse direction of normal blood flow (retrograde perfusion). The purpose of the cuff is to occlude the opening of the coronary sinus, forcing cardioplegia flow to the coronary vessel bed of the heart. These pediatric cannulae are offered in silicone body manual inflate models with either a guidewire stylet or without a stylet. Manual inflate models require the clinician to inflate the cuff by using an included syringe before delivering cardioplegia.
DLP® Silicone RCSP Cannulae with Manual-Inflate Cuff
Designed to deliver cardioplegia solution to the heart through the coronary sinus, these cannulae feature kink-resistant, wire-wound silicone bodies and smooth manual inflate cuffs with pressure monitoring lines. Cannulae come with either a guidewire stylet or without a stylet. All cannulae come with a syringe for cuff inflation.
Cardioplegia adapters are designed to permit customization of the cardioplegia circuit. Adapters can be used to switch between antegrade and retrograde delivery of cardioplegia. Additional adapters are available to extend the length of the cardioplegia circuit, recirculate the cardioplegia solution or provide an extension to the pressure monitoring line. All adapters are designed to be used in the perfusion circuit and are not patient size specific.
DLP® Cardioplegia Adapter with Pressure Port
This adapter is designed to allow for more accurate pressure monitoring of the aorta and the coronary arteries. This adapter features a latex-free rubber septum to allow access for insertion of a pressure-monitoring needle near the connection to the cardioplegia cannula. The swivel male locking luer is designed to allow the adapter to be connected to the cannulae and moved out of the incision site.
Care and caution should be taken to avoid damage to vessels and cardiac tissue during cannulation or other cardiac procedures.
