bypassing open heart surgery
The story behind
The innovative ELANA procedure is designed and developed in such a way, that is applicable both in open chest and totally endoscopic procedure setting without the need of stopping the heart for even a moment. Our specifically designed connector and laser catheter allow us to make this possible. The new ELANA Heart Bypass system will soon be used in patients.
How does it work in theory?
How does it work in practice?
“Connectors are very helpful to perform an anastomosis in a very tiny challenging environment which you face in a Totally Endoscopic Coronary Artery Bypass (TECAB) surgery. The development of connectors will bring the TECAB up to another level”
