MAQUET Cardiovascular Announces Leading Robotic Heart Surgeon Performs First Beating Heart Fully Endoscopic Bypass Surgery Using Miniaturized Cardiopulmonary Bypass System
Date:9/24/2009

WAYNE, N.J., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- MAQUET Cardiovascular announced today that Johannes Bonatti, M.D., Professor of Surgery and Director of Coronary Surgery and Advanced Coronary Interventions at the University of Maryland Heart Center in Baltimore, has completed the world's first use of the MAQUET Minimized ExtraCorporeal Circulation (MECC) system during a successful robotic and fully endoscopic heart surgery. The new cardiopulmonary bypass technology is the first major advancement in perfusion technology in the last decade. It is designed to minimize the effects of traditional heart surgery and aid in minimally-invasive heart surgery without the need to stop the patient's heart from beating.

"The difficulty in performing robotic beating heart bypass surgery safely and comfortably on a patient has been a barrier to the growth of minimally invasive procedures, despite their benefits to patients over more open approaches," said Dr. Bonatti. "A miniaturized cardiopulmonary bypass system, such as MAQUET's MECC technology, provides alternatives to surgeons performing robotic surgery and allows patients who were previously not a candidate to receive minimally invasive interventions."

Dr. Bonatti has been recognized as one of the world's thought-leaders in the growing field of totally endoscopic coronary surgery. Through his use of robotic surgical equipment, Dr. Bonatti offers his patients an alternative to open surgery that has been demonstrated to reduce overall recovery time and enable patients to return to their daily activities significantly faster than with traditional bypass surgery.

Traditional bypass surgery uses a standard heart lung bypass machine with catheters inserted directly into the patient's heart. The heart is stopped, allowing the surgeon a static area in which to sew and connect bypass grafts. However, it has been demonstrated that outcomes can poten
