GEM MICROVASCULAR ANASTOMOTIC COUPLER SYSTEM™
THE FAST, SAFE, EASY WAY TO PERFORM MICROVASCULAR ANASTOMOSIS™
The GEM Microvascular Anastomotic COUPLER™ System has been specifically designed for use in the anastomosis of veins and arteries normally encountered in microsurgical procedures.
NOTE: The GEM COUPLER System is completely latex free.
HIGH QUALITY ANASTOMOSIS
Intima-to-intima contact without any intraluminal foreign (suture) material which should decrease the rate of thrombosis.
Most anastomoses using the COUPLER can be completed in 3-8 minutes* saving valuable OR time, reducing ischemic time for the flap, and patient exposure to anesthesia.
Clinical reports show an equal or greater patency rate when the COUPLER is used as opposed to conventional suturing technique.*
Manages vessel size mismatches better than traditional suturing techniques. Simplicity and dependability in both end-to end and end-to side anastomotic configurations.
Anastomoses are 50% stronger than sutured anastomosis at 4 months, and may benefit from the scaffold effect of the rings which prevent the vessel wall from collapsing.*
