ALPINE Femoral Venous Catheter

Minimally invasive valve surgery is a rapidly growing field that, in many situations, is outpacing open techniques. These minimally invasive approaches, in addition to re-do cardiac operations and ECMO, require femoral venous cannulation. The type of cannulae surgeons insert and the method in which they do it (cutdown versus percutaneous) can make all the difference in surgery success and patient ambulation time.
