Business Description

Industry: Medical Instruments & Equipment » Medical Instruments & Supplies
Compare:WST, BAX, COV, TMO, COO » details
Traded in other countries:C5V.Germany
Cardica, Inc. was incorporated in Delaware in October 1997 as Vascular Innovations, Inc. and changed its name to Cardica, Inc. in November 2001. Its business is focused on the design, manufacture and marketing of proprietary automated anastomotic systems used by cardiac surgeons to perform coronary bypass surgery. It has re-focused its business on the development of an endoscopic microcutter product line intended for use by thoracic, bariatric, colorectal and general surgeons. The first product that it is developing in its planned microcutter product line is the Microcutter XPRESS 30, the first true multi-fire endolinear microcutter device based on its proprietary 'staple-on-a-strip' technology, which would expand its commercial opportunity into additional surgical markets. In addition, it is developing the Microcutter XPRESS 45, a planned multi-fire endolinear microcutter device with a 45 millimeter staple line, the Microcutter XCHANGE 30, a planned cartridge based microcutter device with a 5 millimeter shaft diameter and a 30 millimeter staple line, the Microcutter FLEXCHANGE 30, a planned cartridge based microcutter device with a flexible shaft to facilitate endoscopic procedures requiring cutting and stapling, and the Microcutter XPRESS 60, a planned cutting and stapling device designed for the bariatric and thoracic surgery markets. The Company's C-Port Distal Anastomosis Systems, or C-Port systems, are sold in the United States and Europe. The C-Port systems are used to perform a distal anastomosis, which is the connection between a bypass graft vessel and the target coronary artery. It intends to launch a full range of surgical stapling devices that cover the needs of thoracic, bariatric, colorectal and general surgeons. It designs, manufactures and markets proprietary automated anastomotic systems used by surgeons to perform anastomoses during on- or off-pump CABG procedures. It currently markets four proprietary products to perform anastomoses, the C-Port xA system, the C-Port Flex A system, the C-Port X-CHANGE system and the PAS-Port system. The FDA and other regulatory bodies extensively regulate the research, development, manufacture, labeling, distribution and marketing of its products.
