Thanks to our specially designed technique, we aim to perform the entire heart bypass operation through small incisions in the chest.
This is obviously great for the patient, because there is no need to open the chest.
Inside, a blocked blood vessel is bypassed by using a donor vessel, which is usually taken from around the same area. By using our special ELANA Heart clip, the donor vessel is connected behind the blockage and is then opened, to allow blood to flow through the newly made path. No need for a heart-lung machine and suturing.
For the patient, this means less chance of infections, internal bleeding, stroke and a much shorter recovery time.
The patient is only required to let the openings heal for a short period of time before going back to normal life.
