Cardiac Wall Stabilizers

Definition : Devices designed for the local immobilization of a portion of the cardiac wall with a minimum compromise of the muscle function during beating-heart surgical procedures. These stabilizers typically consist of a mechanism designed to restrain the movement of the cardiac wall; some stabilizers include paddles with malleable suction domes that allow precise adjustment to the cardiac surface. Cardiac wall stabilizers are used in open or minimally invasive surgical procedures to perform coronary artery bypass grafting and other delicate procedures on the coronary arteries or on the pericardium without using cardiopulmonary bypass or interrupting the native coronary blood flow.
