- Brief summary Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death in our society. Either Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA), with or without stenting, or Coronary Artery ByPass Grafting (CABG) procedures are typically employed to achieve revascularization of the heart. The Cardica ™ C - Port xA is intended for use in CABG procedures for creating a rapid sutureless end to side directional distal anastomosis between a grafted vessel (vein or artery) and the coronary artery. The Cardica ™ C - Port xA has three possible advantages compared to the standard suturing technique: The Cardica ™ C - Port xA may provide a method for standardizing the anastomosis procedure. Usage of the Cardica ™ C - Port xA may shorten the actual “suturing” period of 10-25 minutes and the period of myocardial ischemia associated with local occlusion of a coronary vessel in OPCAB procedures. For OPCAB cases, shortening the time needed for graft connection will reduce the period of hemodynamic instability frequently associated with heart displacement needed for back wall vessels exposure. Finally, the anastomosis created with a C-Port xA is compliant as opposed to an anastomosis created using the standard running suturing technique, where the anastomosis is non-compliant and is restricted in its ability to expand with increasing blood flow requirements.
