Designed to minimize the soft tissue trauma associated with tunneling1

The Maquet Vascular Graft Tunneling System is designed to create a subcutaneous tunnel for the placement of a vascular graft in both peripheral and AV access applications. While the Tunneler System can be used with a graft that does not feature a SLIDER Graft Deployment System (GDS), this proprietary tunneling system was designed to be most effective when used in conjunction with a GDS graft.  The Maquet Tunneler System and its components are made of surgical-grade stainless steel and are designed for multiple reuse when properly maintained.

  • The Tunneler System comes with 4 Tunneler rod configurations to accommodate both AV loop graft placement and bypass graft placement
  • The Tunneler System is designed to interface with the SLIDER GDS and:
    • Minimize soft tissue disruption during the tunneling process by matching the tunnel diameter to the graft diameter1
    • Reduce pre-wetting of the graft1
    • Reduce complications (Seroma and Pseudoaneurysm)1
  • Tunneler rod handles are knurled for better gripping and are equipped with a direction tab to increase control in tunnel placement.
  • An assortment of blunt and pointed tips are available
  • Peer reviewed published data supporting the clinical benefits observed by physicians who have used the Maquet Vascular Graft Tunneling System is available upon request.1
