Transit Time Flow Measurement (TTFM) should be used to verify graft patency, as recommended by guidelines issued jointly in 2014 by the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the European Association of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (EACTS).
TTFM provides accurate and systematic assessments of graft patency. Imaging technology improves the quality assessment obtained from TTFM alone. Both techniques are better at finding plaque than your fingers are. Traditional finger palpation has been demonstrated to be inadequate and even potentially harmful.
Combining high-resolution imaging and blood flow measurement together in a single package is the new paradigm for intraoperative quality assessment and improved outcomes.
Epiaortic imaging allows a sensitive, direct diagnosis of aortic disease, which can lead to modifications in intraoperative surgical management. Epicardial imaging can be used intraoperatively to assess coronary quality, strategize graft placement and verify graft patency.
VeriQ™ C can assist with vascular reconstruction, from assessment and anastomosis discovery to verification and quality assurance – in procedures such as carotid endarterectomy, femoropopliteal bypass surgery, or flow measurements of AV fistulae.
Intraoperative assessment of organ transplants is often determined by verifying anastomosis quality and adequate graft perfusion, which can be easily documented using flow and imaging techniques – improving outcomes and avoiding costly reinterventions.Request a demo Product Brochure
