Optimized venous drainage with the self expanding device


The superior performance of SDD is based on its ability to take advantage of the human anatomy, which by nature increases the diameter of the main veins in vicinity to the heart.

Hence, a venous cannula that can be inserted from the groin into the venous system with a relatively small diameter, which reaches larger (iliac and caval) diameters within the body, allows a significant reduction of the narrowed blood path.

SDD expanded in situ, i. e. the inferior vena cava.
It becomes clear, that the majority of the intravenous blood path towards the pump-oxygenator is unrestricted.

The SDD Dilator Set is designed for percutaneous or semi-open vascular access with diameters from 8F to 24F.
