Technical Specifications:

  • Size: Available in various sizes to accommodate different patient anatomies.
  • Material: Typically made of medical-grade silicone or polyurethane.
  • Design: Features a curved or straight tip for insertion into the left ventricle.
  • Lumen Configuration: Usually has a single lumen for blood drainage.
  • Connector Type: Equipped with a standard connector compatible with cardiopulmonary bypass circuits.
  • Sterility: Supplied sterile and individually packaged for single-use in surgical procedures.

Technical Description: The LV vent is a specialized catheter used to decompress the left ventricle during cardiac surgery, particularly during procedures involving cardiopulmonary bypass. It is inserted into the left ventricle through the apex of the heart and connected to the cardiopulmonary bypass circuit. The LV vent allows for continuous drainage of blood from the left ventricle, preventing distension and maintaining hemodynamic stability during surgery.
