New smart canula ® applications: A small 30F orifice in the right atrial wall is sufficient for clinical central venous cannulation based on the smart cannula principle. Full flow for cardiopulmonary bypass can be achieved by gravity drainage alon. Hence, compared to a traditional two stage venous cannula, the access orifice area necessary for cannulation of the right atrium can be reduced by up to 65%:


More on the most recent clinical results achieved with the smart canula ® will be presented at the 55th International Congress of The European Society for Cardio-Vascular Surgery at Pribaltiyskaya Hotel, St. Petersburg, Russia, on May 11-14, 2006: http://www.escvsannualcongress.org/
