Arterial Cannulae

Designed with the ability to go more places, help facilitate ease of insertion and promote optimal protection and performance.

  • Specifically designed to help you protect your patients during on-pump cardiac surgery by minimizing trauma to the aorta and by enabling less invasive surgical techniques.
  • Available in a variety of configurations designed for ease-of-use, regardless of individual surgical techniques.
  • Available in configurations designed to offer gentle dispersion flow and protect patients from the potential dangers of embolic dislodgement.
EMBOL-X Glide Protection System
The EMBOL-X Glide protection system is the safest, most efficient intra-aortic filtration device available. It not only captures particulate matter in the bloodstream, but also helps reduce the risk of embolic complications.
  • 97% of EMBOL-X filters captured embolic material in a multicenter randomized controlled study1
  • The EMBOL-X intra-aortic filter has demonstrated a reduction in adverse neurologic and end-organ events in moderate to high risk patients1,2
EZ Glide Aortic Cannulae
The proprietary EZ Glide dispersion tip aortic cannula is an easy-to-use solution designed to help protect against embolic complications during surgery, especially with today’s older and sicker patient populations.
  • Innovative tip disperses return flow in a gentle, conical spray pattern
  • Optimized tip angle provides centered flow inside the aorta, away from
    the vessel wall
  • Unique, auto-dilating tip enables fast and easy insertion
OptiSite Arterial Cannulae
The proprietary OptiSite arterial cannula gives you increased flexibility by providing a variety of safe cannulation site options. It is designed to accommodate multiple surgical techniques and clinician preferences.
  • Proprietary ultra thin wall technology for enhanced flow and flexibility
  • Unique blunt tip introducer allows safe insertion
  • Innovative locking feature designed to prevent push-back of the introducer and facilitate a smooth insertion
