The Wisconsin Heart Hospital Announces Live Webcast Demonstrating Breakthrough Device to Facilitate Beating Heart and Robotic Coronary Revascularization Surgery
Date:1/11/2008

video footage that shows a robotic closed-chest bypass procedure using the C-Port Flex A system in combination with the da Vinci(R) Surgical System. To date, Dr. Brunsting has performed several closed chest procedures using the Cardica device.

Moderating the live procedure will be Tung Cai, M.D., Medical Director and Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the Presbyterian Hospital of Denton. Dr Cai will present his published clinical patency data on the C-Port distal portfolio and review Dr. Balkhy's C-Port patency data from the November 2007 American Heart Association Scientific conference. This data was part of a study co-authored with Samuel Wann, M.D., Chair of the Department of Cardiac and Vascular Medicine at The Wisconsin Heart Hospital.

All three physicians will narrate during the procedure, explaining critical aspects of the surgery, and will answer viewers' e-mail questions submitted live during the event.

"This particular type of bypass is vital to the development of robotic, closed-chest bypass procedures, and therefore proving its efficacy in open-chest procedures is critical," said Dr. Balkhy.

According to Dr. Balkhy, "Cardica's C-Port systems represent a breakthrough in distal anastomotic devices that facilitate and simplify beating heart and robotic CABG procedures. These devices allow surgeons to offer patients less invasive cardiac surgery and may improve outcomes. This live webcast will provide surgeons with a convenient forum for an interactive exchange of questions, ideas and opinions about these revolutionary devices."

"The C-Port Flex A system has the potential to revolutionize the field of cardiothoracic surgery, as it may enable closed-chest, robot-assisted CABG procedures to be more reliably performed without the assistance of cardiopulmonary bypass and cardioplegic arrest of the heart," added Dr. Brunsting.
