Vessel Harvesting Kits, Minimally Invasive, Endoscopic

Definition : Minimally invasive vessel harvesting kits designed with a surgically inserted (tunneled) subcutaneous endoscope as a main component. These kits are typically a prepackaged collection of devices, including a dedicated endoscope with a video camera at its distal end, and several tools, such as dissecting and harvesting rods, that are introduced through a trocar and/or cannula. Endoscopic vessel harvesting kits are intended for dissecting veins (e.g., the saphenous vein) and arteries (e.g., the radial artery) from the limbs and/or the mammary artery from the thorax. Other harvesting kits based on a disposable cannula with a control and steering handle and a lumen intended for endoscope insertion are also available. Endoscopic vein harvesting kits are frequently linked to external endoscopic surgical systems, including a monitor, a radiofrequency generator, an image processor, and light sources mounted on a cart or rack. Harvested vessels are used mainly as bypass grafts in coronary artery surgical procedures but are sometimes used to replace peripheral (e.g., lower limb) vessels; the kits may be used for other dissection procedures (e.g., nerve dissection) through a surgically created subcutaneous cavity.
