  "We strive to improve patient outcomes using the safest, most technically-advanced and effective devices. By incorporating the C-Port xA® system into our CABG procedures, our surgeons can quickly and reliably attach blood vessel grafts, reduce operating room time, and increase the likelihood that the vessel will remain patent."

Sherie Ponting
Operating Room Director for the Wisconsin Heart Hospital, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin

Dextera Surgical manufactures and markets proprietary products which automate the connections, or anastomoses, of blood vessels during coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. Dextera's automated anastomosis systems, the C-Port® Distal Anastomosis Systems and PAS-Port® Proximal Anastomosis System, are designed to replace hand-sewn anastomoses, which are time consuming and difficult to perform.

By replacing the hand-sewn sutures with an easy-to-use, highly reliable and reproducible automated system, the C-Port and PAS-Port systems are designed to:

  • Improve the quality of the anastomoses;
  • Improve the consistency of the anastomoses;
  • Decrease the time required for completing the anastomoses;
  • Contribute to improved patient outcomes; and
  • Facilitate minimally-invasive, sternum sparing CABG surgery.

Dextera Surgical is committed to the advancement of less invasive cardiac surgery and would like to partner with you to bring these automated anastomosis system to your hospital. We offer support for:

  • Surgeon training
  • Operating room staff training
