Arterial Smart canula specifications Print E-mail
Arterial smart canula ® production is ISO 9001 certified and all available types of smart canula ® are CE 0344 labeled.

Arterial smart canula ® for either peripheral or central canulation with maximal canula expansion from 12 F up to 24 F (maximal flow > 6l/min for a 24F access aperture) are available.








Typical applications for the arterial smart canula ® include:


Large arterial smart canula ®

Ordering numberA 3/8 24 260 S
Typical applicationFemoral/aortic cannulation for CPB
Typical tip positionIliac artery/aorta
Total length26 cm
Connecting tube3/8 inch
Guide wire diameter0.035 inch
Size in collapsed configuration< 18 F
Size in expanded configuration 24 F
Typical flows up to6 l/min

The 24 F arterial smart canula ® is designed for peripheral cannulation of the femoral artery or direct aortic cannulation. Prior to insertion, the arterial smart canula ® is stretched with the corresponding mandrel and inserted over a guide wire. Care has to be taken that the guide wire is positioned within the arterial/aortic lumen (check position with TEE). Once the arterial smart canula ® is inserted, it is important to remove the guide wire prior to the mandrel in order to prevent cannula tip dislocation.



Medium arterial smart canula ®
Ordering numberA 3/8 20 260 S
Typical applicationFemoral, axillary, or direct aortic cannulation for CPB
Typical tip positionArterial/aortic lumen
Total length26 cm
Connecting tube3/8 inch
Guide wire diameter0.035 inch
Size in collapsed configuration< 15 F
Size in expanded configuration 20 F
Typical flows up to5 l/min

The 20 F arterial smart canula ® is designed for peripheral cannulation of the femoral/axillary artery or direct aortic cannulation in smaller patients. Prior to insertion, the arterial smart canula ® is stretched with the corresponding mandrel and inserted over a guide wire. Care has to be taken that the guide wire is positioned within the arterial/aortic lumen (check position with TEE). Once the arterial smart canula ® is inserted, it is important to remove the guide wire prior to the mandrel in order to prevent cannula tip dislocation.



Small arterial smart canula ®
Ordering numberA 1/4 16 220 S
Typical applicationFemoral, axillary or direct aortic cannulation for CPB
Typical tip positionarterial /aortic lumen
Total length22 cm
Connecting tube1/4 inch
Guide wire diameter0.035 inch
Size in collapsed configuration< 12 F
Size in expanded configuration 16 F
Typical flows up to4 l/min

The 16 F arterial smart canula ® is designed for peripheral cannulation of the femoral/axillary artery or direct aortic cannulation in even smaller patients. Prior to insertion, the arterial smart canula ® is stretched with the corresponding mandrel and inserted over a guide wire. Care has to be taken that the guide wire is positioned within the arterial/aortic lumen (check position with TEE). Once the arterial smart canula ® is inserted, it is important to remove the guide wire prior to the mandrel in order to prevent cannula tip dislocation.
