Vascular anastomosis still requires non-absorbable thread and overlock for sutures. Although this approach is broadly used, it is time consuming, surgeon-dependent and flawed with risks of stenosis or leaks.
According to the latest estimations of the HAS, a novel device for large vessel anastomosis could be used for 10.000 interventions per year in France (≈1 million in the world)
GlobalData® 2020 market forecast for sutures is $4,92 billion with $3,99 billion in 2015
HOW IT WORKS
The technology created by 2 vascular surgeons is a liquid-tight connector for easy and rapid sutures in various cases such as termino-terminal or side-to-end anastomosis.
This device fits vessels/ vessels as well as vessels/vascular prosthesis connections without damaging vessel walls or inducing stenosis.
KEY BENEFITS vs. STATE OF THE ART
Compare to sutures, this device is:
•Reliable and reproducible
•Fast to implant: reduces surgical and anesthesia time
•Easy to use
•Help endothelial cells colonization
Trap the vessel wall without crushing it
