Vein valve cutter

Insitucat® vein valve cutter is used for the atraumatic incision of vein valves as a preparatory step in in-situ bypass surgery. Insitucat® valvulotome consists of a polyfilament, plastic-coated guide wire. Two conical plastic olives are attached at one end. The upper olive represents the negative imprint of the venous valve sinus and has a sharp plastic cutting edge, which incises the valve when retracted. Insitucat® valvulotome is a single use product.
