MAQUET Cardiovascular Launches New VASOVIEW 6 PRO Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting System

WAYNE, N.J., Feb. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MAQUET Cardiovascular today announced the U.S. launch of the VASOVIEW 6 PRO Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting System. This latest advance in the VASOVIEW 6 platform for endoscopic vessel harvesting (EVH) offers streamlined controls, improved functionality and simplified operation to support positive outcomes in delivering EVH to patients undergoing cardiac surgery.

The VASOVIEW 6 PRO system has improved ergonomics and delivers a higher level of performance than the previous VASOVIEW 6 product. These product updates may help reduce procedure time and shorten the learning curve for vessel harvesting, thereby optimizing patient outcomes. Additionally, each VASOVIEW 6 PRO system includes MAQUET's VASOSHIELD Pressure Controlling Syringe, which allows clinicians to adjust and limit pressure in controlled increments when preparing a vessel for grafting during coronary artery bypass procedures. Protection from overdistension helps optimize conduit quality by protecting harvested vessels. Uncontrolled, high distension pressure has been shown to injure the vessel's endothelium, potentially affecting long-term graft patency.

"We are impressed with the VASOVIEW 6 PRO technological improvements and look forward to being able to use the system in our practice," said Christopher K. McCarley, PA-C, a Chief Physician Assistant of Cardiothoracic Surgery from Tupelo, Miss.  "It is very convenient that the VASOSHIELD Pressure Controlling Syringe is included, because we believe the extra protection it affords against overdistension of the conduit is an important factor in successful patient outcomes."

"The VASOVIEW 6 PRO System was developed utilizing real-world, clinical user input and addresses the needs of our customers who use endoscopic vessel harvesting in their daily practice as a standard of care," said Patrick Walsh, President of the MAQUET Cardiovascular Cardiac Surgery business unit.

About EVH

In EVH, a healthy blood vessel, such as the saphenous vein from the leg or the radial artery from the arm, is removed through a small incision for use during CABG surgery to bypass a blockage in the heart.  Open vein harvesting requires a lengthy incision that is often extremely painful and prone to healing complications.  EVH offers several patient benefits, including faster healing, less postoperative pain and scarring, and reduced risk of wound complications, such as infection.  These well-established benefits have resulted in EVH becoming the standard of care in the United States, with 80 percent of all CABG surgeries utilizing this technique.

MAQUET is a global supplier of market-leading VASOVIEW EVH Systems.
