Simplified Antegrade Cardioplegia Catheter
Jakob Vinten-Johansen, PhD
Myocardial surgery requires the heart to stop for a period of time. In order to protect the heart muscle during this time, a cardioplegia solution is often perfused into the heart via a catheter. Such a procedure requires a number of materials including the catheter, multiple rummels, and hemostats - all of which impair the surgeons view of and access to the surgical field. Dr. Jakob Vinten-Johansen has designed a new catheter that is simplified and self-contained as well as optimized ergonomically for the surgeon. The catheter contains the same central design but is easier to use, reduces clutter, enhances surgeon visibility, and is compatible with standard cardioplegia delivery systems.
