Cardioroot Woven Vascular Graft

Cardioroot

Aortic Graft - Inspired by anatomy[1]

Cardioroot graft delivers an option for the repair or reconstruction of the ascending aorta.

Overview

For more than 40 years, surgeons have trusted Getinge to meet their clinical demands with durable cardiovascular grafts in anatomically-designed configurations. The versatile and unique anatomical design of Cardioroot aortic graft supports all types of complex aortic root surgeries.

Innovative, anatomically designed aortic root graft provides predictable handling properties and versatility in all types of aortic root repair and replacement surgeries.[1],[4]

Features

Anatomical design

Innovative design of Cardioroot mimics the anatomy and blood flow dynamics of the natural sinuses of Valsalva.

  • Provides optimum flow dynamics[1],[2]
  • Reproducing a near-normal leaflet-sinus unit morphology thanks to anatomical reconstruction of the sinuses[1]
  • Optimize coronary flow dynamics[1]

Designed for premium handling

Anatomical design of Cardioroot provides premium handling properties.

  • Precise suturing of coronary buttons thanks to uncrimped bulge[1]
  • Seamless, one-piece design provides easy suturing and cutting
  • Helps to relieve the stress on the coronary anastomoses[3]
  • Designed to reduce operation time[2]
  • Minimize intraoperative bleeding thanks to collagen coating[2]

David Procedure

The Cardioroot graft offers an innovative one-piece design for use in a valve sparing root replacement. The unique design of Cardioroot mimics the anatomy and blood flow dynamics of the natural sinuses of Valsalva.

Bentall Procedure

Used in repairs to the aorta, the unique design of Cardioroot mimics the anatomy and blood flow dynamics of the natural sinuses of Valsalva.

Yacoub Procedure

When used in the Yacoub procedure, the innovative one-piece design collagen-coated Cardioroot graft delivers options for the repair or reconstruction of the ascending aorta while saving the native valve. The unique design of Cardioroot mimics the anatomy and blood flow dynamics of the natural sinuses of Valsalva.

Clinical Data

Safety and durability

Cardioroot demonstrated early and mid-term safety and effectiveness for the treatment of aneurysmal aortic root.[1]

  • Expected benefits on the durability of the procedure[1]
  • Proven safety in 1-year follow-up study[1]
  • Over 10 years of experience
  • Maintaining a stable shape and size of the aortic root should prolong the durability of a sparing aortic valve procedure[1]
