Presentation on theme: "MCV00002512 THE EVOLUTION OF EVH AND CONDUIT QUALITY."— Presentation transcript:


2 MCV © MAQUET2 EVH: THE STANDARD OF CARE Highly evolved systems, developed over the past 15 years Eight generations of devices, along with accessory line, have been introduced Product features, harvester training and understanding of physiological mechanisms affecting graft patency has significantly improved Emphasis on conduit quality and patient outcomes

3 MCV © MAQUET3 EVH: THEN & NOW 1995: EVH was an innovative alternative to invasive open surgery Today, 95% of U.S. hospitals use EVH Successes supported by 15 years of peer-reviewed, randomized studies Over 1 million EVH procedures performed worldwide 2008 STS Floor Survey and market research data on file. MAQUET Cardiovascular. 2008

4 MCV © MAQUET4 EVH: THE EARLY YEARS Tenfold increase in procedures Clear patient benefits 2008 STS Floor Survey and market research data on file. MAQUET Cardiovascular. 2008
