The Venous Return Catheter is designed for venous cannulation during extra-corporeal circulation. Both single and two-stage catheters are used during cardiac surgery. Single-stage venous catheters are inserted through the right atrial wall into the superior and inferior vena cava. The two-stage venous catheter is generally inserted through the right atrial auricle in order to position the distal end in the inferior vena cava and the proximal opening of the catheter in the right atrium.
With its many different models, the MAQUET range offers venous catheters to suit every operation.
