During extracorporeal circulation, our Arterial Perfusion Cannulae serve to recirculate the oxygenated blood via the ascending aorta.
Our top product is the TRANSMINAR Arterial Cannula, which features excellent flow characteristics and optimum blood protection. A range of tip forms, fixations and connections allow individual combinations, making TRANSMINAR the right cannula for every operation.
MAQUET’s TRANSMINAR cannula represents the state of the art in arterial cannula research. Made of tissue-friendly and blood-compatible materials, it features line markings to facilitate positioning. The TRANSMINAR cannula comes with a fully transparent and high-strength tip; its ultra-thin walls make for a high degree of flexibility. Wire reinforcement reduces the risk of kinking. Excellent flow performance is ensured by the smooth inner wall, which extends along the entire length of the TRANSMINAR cannula, thus minimizing the risk of haemolysis. The cannulae have a 3/8" connection.
MAQUET produces a wide range of cannula sizes and models to suit individual anatomical needs and the convenience of the surgeon:
- 20, 22 and 24 Fr
- with straight or curved tip
- with a choice of ring or flange
- also available with a range of connectors
A standard feature of all TRANSMINAR cannulae is the micropore vent plug, which provides convenient automatic ventilation during cannulation of the aorta.
