Our OctoBase® Retractor system is a key component of median sternotomy beating heart CAB procedures.
This retractor system allows for countless Octopus® stabilizer mounting options. The unique rail slot design allows for multiple blade configurations, as well as pericardial suture retention.
The OctoBase has been designed to maximize the mounting area for and optimize the attachment of the Octopus family of stabilizers.
Not all patients are candidates for beating heart procedures. Some patients would require cardiopulmonary support during surgery.
