Cardiac Cannula

A cardiac cannula is a tube inserted into a vein or artery during cardiac surgery. Venous cannulae are used to administer or remove fluids and arterial cannulae secure access to an artery for purposes such as blood sampling or blood pressure monitoring. Aortic cannulas are used to form a bypass opening in the lumen of the aorta.

Medical Devices
Antegrade cannulae are designed to deliver cardioplegia solution to the heart via the coronary ostia in the normal direction of blood flow (antegrade perfusion). Medtronic offers both aortic root cannulae and coronary ostial cannulae. Aortic root cannulae are intended to infuse cardioplegia directly into the aortic root near the aortic valve while coronary ostial cannulae are held on or placed in the coronary ostia.
The Cardioplegia Retrograde Cannulae from Sorin is used for the retrograde delivery of cardioplegic solution through the coronary sinus.
Arterial cannulae are intended to deliver oxygenated blood to the arterial vasculature. Medtronic understands the importance of gentle flow in the often fragile aorta and we offer a number of different product variations to facilitate a variety of surgical techniques and patient anatomies.
The Femoral Cannulae from Edwards is designed to minimize surgical trauma and to help you protect your patients during on-pump cardiac surgery by minimizing trauma and expanding your surgical options.
The Femoral Cannulae from Sorin has a female luer lock connector for venting in position down (opposite to the flow of the tip).
Femoral cannulae provide greater versatility of cannulation techniques to meet the needs of the changing patient population and the desire for smaller thoracic incisions. Designed to be placed in the femoral vein or artery, Medtronic Femoral Cannulae are ideally suited for both percutaneous and direct insertion.
The Cardioplegia Aortic Root Cannulae from sorin has large ventilation openings assure efficient ventilation.
The Aortic Optiflow Cannulae from Sorin has an unique design Optiflow tip with three-dimensional dispersion of the blood flow.
The Arterial Cannulae id designed with the ability to go more places, help facilitate ease of insertion and promote optimal protection and performance.
Medtronic Venous Cannulae are designed to provide optimal venous drainage while providing flexibility and ease of use. We offer a variety of single stage venous cannulae with kink-resistant, wire-wound bodies in sizes from 12 Fr – 24 Fr.
The Coronary perfusion cannulas are used on adults. They are used for coronary reinjection during interventions. They are inserted in the coronary ostium.
The Paediatric Aortic Cannulas are used on children. They are used for the aortic reinjection of blood during cardiac interventions. They are located through an incision in the aorta and held by making a “purse” and a pull tab.
MAQUET offers a range of different antegrade cardioplegia cannulae. The antegrade cardioplegia cannulae are used as infusion cannulae for cardioplegic solutions. The solution is perfused through the aortic root into the coronary arteries.
The Paediatric Cannulae from Sorin has two types: aortic and venous cannulaes. They are specifically designed for newborn, infant and paediatric patients.
The Cardioplegia Coronary Ostium 3d Cannulae from Sorin is used for the direct cannulation of the coronary ostium to deliver cardioplegic solution.
Retrograde cannulae are designed to deliver cardioplegia solution to the heart via the coronary sinus in the reverse direction of normal blood flow (retrograde perfusion). These cannulae are offered in either auto inflating or manual inflating cuff models.
Medtronic Venous Cannulae are designed to provide optimal venous drainage while providing flexibility and ease of use. We offer an unmatched selection of cannulae to facilitate a wide range of insertion and drainage techniques.
The Cardioplegia Coronary Ostium Cannulae from Sorin is used for the direct cannulation of the coronary ostium to deliver cardioplegic solution
The Paediatric Polyurethane Cannulae from Sorin has very closely winded wire reinforcement prevents kinking while maintaining excellent flexibility.
The Aortic Cannulae from Sorin has an optimized tubing diameter for each size, gradually increasing from the tip to the connector.
The Venous Cannulae from Edwards provides high flow in small spaces to better protect your patients. It is designed to meet the challenges of today’s cardiac surgeries by providing high flow drainage with minimal intrusion into the surgical field.
The Femoral Polyurethane Cannulae from Sorin has very closely winded wire reinforcement prevents collapsing of the tubing while maintaining the maximum flexibility.
The Cardioplegia Cannulae from Edwards maximize myocardial protection. A growing body of evidence points to combined retrograde and antegrade cardioplegia as the best approach for maximizing myocardial protection in patients undergoing arrested heart procedures.1-5
