  • cardioplegia solution
  • An improved method of using a single catheter to infuse blood to the heart, clamping the aorta and delivering a cardioplegia solution. (google.de)
  • In a first embodiment, a single catheter (10) is positioned upwardly in the aorta to infuse oxygenated blood into the ascending aorta via an infusion lumen (72) terminating at the distal end (54), with cardioplegia solution being delivered via openings (82) defined closely adjacent the balloon (56) on the proximal side of the balloon.
