CardioThoracic Systems has updated its OPCAB and MIDCAB beating heart revascularisation surgery product line. The AccessPlus is a mid-sternal thoracotomy device providing access to arteries at the back as well as the front of the heart. The Modular Lift Set lifts the ribs far enough to give sight of the internal mammary artery. The Ceres SV, is an endoscopic saphenous vein harvester that can operate through 4cm incisions rather than a full-leg slit. CTS of Cupertino, California, claims the improvements enable off-pump CABG treatment of more patients.
