MAQUET Cardiovascular Announces Leading Robotic Heart Surgeon Performs First Beating Heart Fully Endoscopic Bypass Surgery Using Miniaturized Cardiopulmonary Bypass System

tially be improved if the heart is not stopped (Puskas et al, Ann Thorac Surg, 2007;84:1447-56).

The revolutionary MECC system, in contrast, typically requires the placement of two catheters in the patient's upper thigh and does not require the surgeon to stop the patient's heart during surgery. The combined effect of allowing the heart to remain beating, the reduction of tubing needed, and the reduced amount of fluid required to dilute the blood versus that needed in traditional bypass, offers improved safety and the ability to offer a minimally invasive approach to the patient. Diluting the patient's blood during routine bypass surgery has been associated with an increased need for blood transfusions. MECC technology requires only a small amount of fluid to be given to the patient and, therefore, decreases the likelihood of a necessary blood transfusion.

"The MECC system's ability to improve patent safety and outcomes is the gold standard quality we look to incorporate into our cardiopulmonary perfusion products," said Raoul Quintero, President and CEO, MAQUET Cardiovascular US Sales LLC. "Physicians have been asking for new technology that offers alternatives for both conventional and high-risk patients. Our MECC technology provides a revolutionary new platform for physicians who want to perform minimally-invasive beating heart surgery and is an alternative to traditional perfusion technology."

The MECC system has incorporated many built-in features over existing technologies that may benefit patients:

  • MECC systems have heparin coating called BIOLINE, providing excellent biocompatibility and improving overall safety
  • Reduction in blood transfusions
  • Minimized systemic inflammatory response through MECC's reduced surface activation
  • Prime volume is significantly lowered from the small size of MECC's tubes and catheters resulting in a decr
