This evaluation is designed to evaluate the feasibility of using an automated distal coronary anastomotic to facilitate grafting of the left internal mammary artery to the left anterio descending coronary artery during myocardial revascularization in patients with coronary artery disease requiring surgical intervention. The study is designed to assess the ability to compare the patency of grafts created using an automated device versus hand-sewn grafts of the same vessels in the same patient population.

Condition Intervention
Coronary Artery Disease Device: Automated distal anastomotic device

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Efficacy of Automated Distal Vascular Anastomosis in Coronary Surgery: Phase II

Further study details as provided by Cardica, Inc:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Coronary patency of index graft at the sixth post-operative month [ Time Frame: 6 months post-op ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Establish preliminary safety profile [ Time Frame: 6 months post-op ]

Enrollment: 170
Study Start Date: January 2006
Study Completion Date: December 2009
Primary Completion Date: October 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
No Intervention: C-Port
Automated distal anastomotic device
Device: Automated distal anastomotic device
Other Name: C-Port xA Distal Anastomosis System

Detailed Description:
Evaluation of automated distal anastomotic device as a surrogate for hand-sewn grafts for completion of arterial conduit anastomosis between the Left Internal Mammary Artery and Left Anterior Descending Artery among patients with coronary artery disease requiring surgical revascularization.
