The proven Starfish® positioning technology you know and trust for your OPCAB procedures is also available for your minimally invasive procedures.
The Starfish® NS Heart Positioner allows for the positioning of the beating heart through a small incision, bringing coronary targets into the operative thoracotomy window. Detachable suction head enables smooth device entry while the rigid shaft provides vacuum to suction pods, eliminating extra suction tubing.
Not all patients are candidates for beating heart procedures. Some patients would require cardiopulmonary support during surgery.
