Proximal Anastomosis System

  • Clampless off-pump CABG lowers mortality & stroke (in comparison to conventional CABG) [1]
  • One-turn aortotomy and anastomosis [2]
  • Provides reliable automated anastomoses [3]
  • Eliminates aortic clamping [4]
  • Specifically designed for rapid 3-step graft loading [5]
  • Requires less time than a hand-sewn anastomosis [6]


PAS-PORT® Implant: The implant is made of stainless steel that will create a secure graft attachement allowing for variable take-off angles. [4]
