InvaCUT

The treatment of vascular disorders and more particularly
for excising or disrupting venous valves


The Expandable InvaCUT Valvulotome is designed to be used with a less invasive in situ bypass technique. It is the only self-sizing, self-centering valvulotome available. It cuts valves in the saphenous vein, a vein that runs from the groin to the knee.


THE TREATMENT OF VASCULAR DISORDERS AND MORE PARTICULARLY FOR EXCISING OR DISRUPTING VENOUS VALVES

The InvaCUT Valvulotome is a device that cuts venous valves during vascular procedures such as:

    •    In Situ Peripheral Bypass

    •    Non-Reversed Translocated Bypass

    •    Coronary Artery Bypass

    •    Arterio-venous Fistula Creation

The Expandable InvaCUT Valvulotome is designed to be used with a less invasive in situ bypass technique. It is the only self-sizing, self-centering valvulotome available. It cuts valves in the saphenous vein, a vein that runs from the groin to the knee. When used with a semi-closed technique, it helps to prevent wound complications. Valvulotomy can be performed without the need for angioscopy and without changing cutting heads during valve lysis.

Benefits of the Expandable Invacut Valvulotome:

Wide blade range: a smaller diameter of 1.5 mm and a blade range of 1.5 to 6.0 mm allows for effective valve cutting without changing blades or instruments. Vein valve cutter is used for the atraumatic incision of vein valves as a preparatory step in in-situ bypass surgery. The wide range of 1.5 mm - 6.0 mm diameter provides valve cutting in smaller diameter veins while retaining its ability to cut valves in larger diameter vessels. This is striking  device uses unique self-sizing, self-centering hoops for well positioned, clean valve cutting, decreased wound necrosis, and faster patient recovery.

Self-sizing, self-centering hoops support optimal valve cutting.

PTFE sheath keeps blades closed during atraumatic insertion, facilitating a smooth advancement to the proximal anastomosis.

Irrigation port enables saline injection to ease device passage.

The Over-the-Wire Invacut Valvulotome is an innovative device that uses unique self-sizing, self-centering hoops for well-positioned clean valve cutting, decreased wound necrosis, and faster patient recovery.

Special design blades offers valve cutting in smaller diameter veins while retaining its ability to cut valves in larger diameter vessels.

Hydrophilic Coating Decreases Resistance Forces

No damage to the endothelium and intima

Excellent handling and manoeuvrability

Fits over a standard .014" guidewire for enhanced trackability over traditional valvulotomes.

Offers more effective cutting in small vessels.

Side port enables saline injection to ease device passage.

No memory effect, therefore no pressure against the wall of the vessel

Minimal space is required on the instrument table

InvaCUT can be introduced directly from the dispenser into the vessel

Highest possible security for surgeons and patients
