Sorin Group S.p.A. Executes Agreement to Acquire Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting Business from Datascope Corporation
Published: Dec 01, 2008
The vessel harvesting product line will, upon closing of the transaction, be integrated into Sorin Group’s Cardiopulmonary Business Unit.
Endoscopic vessel harvesting (‘EVH’) devices enable less-invasive techniques for the harvesting of suitable vessels for use in conjunction with coronary artery bypass grafting. EVH procedures replace traditional open vessel harvesting and avoid significant pain and discomfort for patients during the recovery period.
