Aortic Root Cannulae and Cardioplegia Adapters
The Aortic Root cannulae from ANDOCOR are used in connection with open-heart surgery, cardiopulmonary bypass, where they are used to perfuse the coronary arteries with cold blood (< 16°C) or cold cardioplegia solution or a mixture of them.
Cardioplegia can be given antegrade or retrograde. For each type different cannulae are available.
They are used together with Cardioplegia adaptors for perfusion of cardioplegia solution into the heart during the open-heart surgery.
Gas Diffuser® is a medical device to diffuse CO2 or other neutral gas in the thoracic cavity in order to chase away O2 during surgical intervention.
Replace O2 by CO2 in the thoracic cavity during open-heart surgery. This will reduce the risk of air embolism, which can result in organ damage.
Hemoconcentration filters are indicated to relieve or mitigate overhydratation in patients under going cardiopulmonary procedures and to increase concentration of cells and proteins in the blood.
Andocor offers a wide range of pre-rinsed and non-rinsed filters. Besides standard hemoconcentrators, custome-made blood lines can be provided as well.
Furthermore, Andocor offers corresponding tubing sets as well.
