The HEARTSTRING Aortic Cutter is a single-use device that offers state-of-the-art ergonomic design and fully automated cutting action for precision aortotomy in unclamped aortas. It helps assure high-quality results in beating heart clampless anastomoses when used as an integral part of the HEARTSTRING III Proximal Seal System.

Each HEARTSTRING III Proximal Seal System includes the Seal, Delivery Device Loader and a choice between two different Aortic Cutter sizes; 4.3 mm or 3.8 mm. The Aortic Cutter is easy to use, and makes a single, clean hole in the aorta.
