  • Patent number: 6740029
    Abstract: Disclosed is a device for isolating a cardiac surgical site. The device comprises a first finger having a clinging accessory for attaching the first finger to a heart, a second finger having a clinging accessory for attaching the second finger to the heart, a first joint disposed on the first finger so that the first finger may rotate on a surface of the heart such that said rotation stretches a surgical site, a first stopper disposed on the first finger for preventing undesired rotation of the first finger to isolate the surgical site, and a link for coupling the first finger to the second finger. Several embodiments of the fingers and clinging accessories are disclosed. A guard is provided to protect sutures from the clinging accessory. The guard is equipped with a sprayer to wash the surgical site. Also disclosed is a method of isolating a cardiac surgical site.

  • Patent number: 6071271
    Abstract: A catheter system for use in minimally invasive cardiac surgical procedures. The catheter system diminishes certain trauma generally associated with invasive cardiac procedures while providing aortic occlusion, extracorporeal circulation, cardiac arrest, and cardiac venting. The catheter system provides a minimally invasive and simplified system that performs total cardiopulmonary bypass with ease of insertion, improved whole body profusion, and shortened recovery periods. The catheters are refined, with reduced diameters and specialized functions for maximum control of each aspect of cardiopulmonary bypass.
