C-Port Systems

C-Port® Distal Anastomosis Systems (C-Port systems)C-Port System

Our C-Port systems attach the end of a bypass graft to a coronary artery downstream of an occlusion or narrowing during coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. The latest generation C-Port systems are currently cleared for use in the United States and bear the CE Mark of conformity for sale in the European Union.

C-Port systems:

"Work on very small coronary arteries."

  • Can be used on- or off-pump
  • Create compliant anastomoses that expand and contract with blood flow
  • Use miniature stainless steel staples to secure the bypass graft to the coronary artery
  • Reduce time required for anastomosis and is complete in two minutes
  • Produce consistent, reproducible anastomoses, largely independent of surgical technique and skill set
  • Do not interrupt blood flow while the anastomosis is being completed
  • Work on coronary arteries as small as 1.25 millimeters in internal diameter
  • Allow mechanically governed repeatability and reduced procedural complexity
  • Work with grafts of various diameters and wall thicknesses less than 1.4 millimeters
  • Minimize scarring and potential occlusion of the anastomosis by achieving nearly complete alignment of the natural blood lining surfaces of the coronary artery and the graft
