Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting


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™ Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting System, used to remove the saphenous vein from the leg for use as a bypass graft during coronary surgery.

The VirtuoSaph™ system is designed for patient safety and superior vessel quality.

Better Patient Outcome

The VirtuoSaph™ EVH System provides an endoscopic approach to saphenous vein harvesting. One small leg incision minimizes scarring, morbidity and infection associated with traditional longitudinal incisions.


  • Endoscope

    ​The Terumo® Endoscope is a 5.5 mm endoscope designed exclusively for the VirtuoSaph™ EVH System utilizing Olympus technology.

  • ​Trocar

    This device is a simple clip-on trocar. The body of the trocar is inserted into the leg incision and stays in place with the clip securely placed on the skin. It places little or no pressure on the vein at the incision site.

  • ​Dissector Rod

    To dissect the saphenous vein and surrounding branches.

  • ​Harvester Rod

    To coagulate and cut the branches of the saphenous vein in one easy step.

A harvester rod with V-keeper, V-lock and V-cutter

  • Targeted, low energy during cauterizing and cutting of branches
  • Quick ease and control of branch tautness
  • The V-keeper holds down the saphenous vein to minimize potential damage to the vein during cauterization.
    It is designed to set up the proper branch tautness and work in concert with the V-cutter for optimal sealing and cutting.
  • The V-lock mechanism secures the saphenous vein in place during the harvesting and transection of the branches.
    It ensures that all the branches are cauterized and cut prior to removing the harvester rod from the leg.
  • The V-cutter is a simple cut-and-coagulate mechanism employing targeted low energy.
    It provides both functions in one easy step.

"Open" system distal insufflation with non-occlusive trocar

  • May lower the risk of CO2 embolism
  • May lower risk of intraluminal clot

A dissector rod with an atraumatic conical tip, centering rings, and CO2 delivered at the tip

  • Centering rings allow the clinician to monitor the location of the dissector cone tip relative to the vein during dissection

Unique wiper to clean the endoscope lens

  • One wiper activation immediately improves visibility
  • Allows cleaning in the tunnel without the need for additional fluid
