Beating Heart Surgery Systems
Beating heart surgery systems are used during off-pump cardiac bypass surgery, a procedure in which the heart is not arrested and continues to pump blood throughout the circulatory system. A tissue stabilizer holds a small area of the heart while a surgeon performs the bypass procedure. Instruments typically include stabilizers and positioners. Accellent is equipped to manufacture individual elements of Beating Heart Systems as well as completed devices, including packaging, labeling and sterilization.
