Crescent Jugular Dual Lumen Catheter 

The Crescent™* catheter is the first FDA-cleared, jugular dual lumen long-term ECMO catheter. It allows for more accurate placement with just one cannulation site, delivers enhanced flow dynamics, and helps maintain optimal flow once placed.

Overview

Game-changing

flow<sup>†</sup> For ECMO

See how our veno-venous ECMO catheter works. Its enhanced flow efficiency, combined with patient mobility, the Crescent catheter is a valuable addition to your ECMO toolkit and an important step in advancing patient outcomes.

Device Features 

CORRECT PLACEMENT MADE EASIER

Optimal flow begins with correct placement, and that can be challenging. The Crescent jugular dual lumen catheter was designed to address those challenges with novel features that make positioning and securement easier for you.  

Radiopaque markers for improved visualization
Visible under radiographic imaging, radiopaque markers aid in positioning the catheter and identifying drainage sites, infusion port, catheter tip, and axial orientation of the port.

  4. Catheter tip marker

OPTIMIZED FLOW RATES

Enhancements in port placement, lumen design, and tip geometry give the Crescent catheter optimal flow efficiency. This enables you to realize higher flow at lower pressure and allows for lower rates of hemolysis and recirculation.

enhancements for optimal flow

Crescent-shaped lumen helps optimize pressure flow performance, and advanced materials make the catheter strong, flexible, and kink-resistant.

Promotes directional efficiency

Large infusion port, combined with radiopaque markers for placement accuracy, help ensure flow is directed toward the tricuspid valve — and pulmonary artery.

Helps minimize recirculation

Drainage and reinfusion ports are designed to mimic the body’s natural flow ratios to minimize recirculation while maintaining flow.

MAINTAINING DESIRED FLOW

Maintain your desired flow with features that keep the catheter securely in place during patient ambulation. Enhanced visualization makes it easy for you to verify that the device remains properly positioned.

  • Visual verification of placement
    Improved visualization helps you quickly identify the catheter tip and orientation of the reinfusion port, and verify that accurate positioning is maintained over the course of the case.
  • Extended tip design helps maintain position
    The tip of the catheter sits deeper in the IVC, reducing the chance of migration.

DURABLE SECUREMENT

  1. In select circumstances, sutures may be placed on the connectors.
  2. Bifurcation suture site provides security against catheter translations.
  3. Integrated suture site contains special reinforcement to protect against catheter damage.
  4. Optional suture collar can be placed at a desired location on the catheter body before or after catheter insertion.
