Endoscopic products allow clinicians to perform minimally invasive procedures through very small incisions by using an endoscope to see inside the patient's body. Terumo manufactures the VirtuoSaph® Plus Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting System, used to remove the saphenous vein or radial artery from the patient for use as a bypass graft during coronary surgery.
The VirtuoSaph® Plus System is designed to evaluate standards for patient safety, conduit quality and ergonimics.1 The device uses an endoscopic approach to vessel harvesting with one small incision in either the leg or arm which minimizes scarring, morbidity and infection associated with traditional longitudinal incisions.
*The VSP550EX has CE (notified body number 2797) and FDA approval for the indicators of both endoscopic vein and radial artery harvesting.
