Closely following Dr. Katz' surgery, Dr. Louis A. Brunsting and his team at Centennial Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee used the Flex A system to complete a multivessel minimally-invasive bypass procedure on a 67-year old male patient who had undergone hip replacement surgery one week earlier. The procedure was performed through four one-inch port access incisions in the left chest, which allowed the patient to resume physical therapy for his hip the following day.

"Just as the advent of endoscopic stapling and suturing devices made laparoscopic surgery commonplace for abdominal surgeries, the Flex A system overcomes the most significant limitation in robot-assisted bypass procedures by replacing hand-sewn sutures with automated, consistent anastomoses," commented Dr. Brunsting.

"We believe that the Flex A system together with the da Vinci robot moves the reality of closed chest bypass surgery several steps closer, by providing reliable and reproducible deployment of the anastomosis," said J. Michael Smith, M.D., cardiothoracic surgeon and head of robotics for Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati. "There is a critical need for alternatives to drug eluting stents for patients suffering from coronary artery disease."

"These clinical 'firsts' demonstrate that we are realizing our vision of enabling minimally-invasive, sternum-sparing bypass procedures," said Bernard A. Hausen, M.D., Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Cardica, Inc. "We congratulate these surgeons on advancing the field of medicine both for the surgeons who follow and most importantly for the patients."

Closed Chest Bypass Procedures

During minimally-invasive, closed-chest bypass procedures the surgeon guides the da Vinci(R) Surgical System to perform precise movements through fingertip-size incisions in the chest area, similar to the procedures for minimally-invasive abdo
