Cardica's Automated Anastomosis Systems Featured at Advances In Robotic And Hybrid Coronary Revascularization Meeting
Date:10/27/2010

oximal Anastomosis Systems automate the connection of blood vessels (known as anastomoses) during CABG surgery, replacing hand-sewn sutures. The reliable, automated connection of the vessels is particularly useful for accessing difficult to reach targets. Anastomoses are often considered the most critical step of the bypass procedure. Cardica's PAS-Port proximal system attaches the bypass graft to the aorta, upstream of the occlusion, while Cardica's C-Port® Distal Anastomosis Systems connect the bypass grafts to coronary arteries downstream of the occlusion. A triple bypass procedure, for example, requires up to five anastomoses. Now, in many instances, all connections could be performed using Cardica's PAS-Port and C-Port anastomosis systems. Cardica is a co-sponsor of the conference.

About Cardica

Cardica designs and manufactures proprietary stapling and anastomotic devices for cardiac and endoscopic surgical procedures. Cardica's technology portfolio is intended to minimize operating time and enable minimally-invasive and robot-assisted surgeries. Cardica manufactures and markets its automated anastomosis systems, the C-Port® Distal Anastomosis Systems and PAS-Port® Proximal Anastomosis System, for CABG surgery and has shipped over 30,000 units throughout the world. In addition, Cardica is developing the Cardica Microcutter ES8, a true multi-fire endoscopic stapling device designed to be used in a variety of procedures, including bariatric, thoracic and general surgery. The Cardica Microcutter ES8 requires regulatory clearance through the 510(k) or other process with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and is not yet commercially available.
