Cardica's C-Port(R) Flex A Anastomosis System Allows Surgeons to Perform Revolutionary Closed-Chest Heart Bypass Surgeries
Date:9/5/2007

minal surgery. To ensure the highest level of safety for the patient, the cardiothoracic surgeon creates an additional safety port insertion for extreme instances in which the surgeon needs direct and sudden access to the heart. The Flex A eliminates a key bottleneck to the broad adoption of minimally-invasive bypass procedures as it replaces hand-sewn sutures with an automated connection of the vessel graft to the coronary artery, which can be performed consistently, quickly and reliably. This connection, called an anastomosis, is often considered the most critical step during bypass surgery.

Conventional "open heart" coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgeries are performed by cutting the sternum. Patients who receive open heart CABG procedures stay in the hospital an average of 5-9 days, and it can take up to two months for the patient to return to normal activity. Patients undergoing closed-chest CABG procedures may be discharged in 24 to 48 hours following surgery, and often return to normal activity levels within one to two weeks.

About Cardica, Inc.

Cardica designs and manufactures automated anastomosis systems for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. By replacing hand-sewn sutures with easy-to-use automated systems, Cardica provides cardiovascular surgeons with rapid, reliable and consistently reproducible anastomoses, or connections of blood vessels, often considered the most critical aspect of the CABG procedure.

Cardica's C-Port(R) Distal Anastomosis Systems are marketed in Europe and the United States. The PAS-Port(R) Proximal Anastomosis System is marketed in Europe and Japan and is being evaluated in a pivotal trial in the United States and Europe. Cardica also is developing additional devices to facilitate vascular and other surgical procedures. Go to http://www.cardica.com for more information.
