Terumo Cardiovascular Group
In 1999, Terumo Corporation merged three of the most established and trusted brands in perfusion products, CAPIOX, Sarns and CDI to create Terumo Cardiovascular Systems. The company inherited a rich history that stretches back to the pioneering years of open-heart surgery.
Since 1999, Terumo Cardiovascular Group has expanded its cardiac surgery product line to include vascular grafts, endoscopic vessel harvesting, and more. (For more details, click on the datelines below.)
Terumo Corporation, our parent company, spans an even greater time period in medical device development. Its first product, a clinical thermometer, was developed in the early 1920s by a group of Japanese doctors and scientists responding to a shortage of medical equipment in Japan. That company later became Terumo Corporation. It has continued to grow and is now one of the largest suppliers of medical devices in Japan.
Today, in virtually every cardiac surgery center around the world, heart teams choose products made by Terumo Cardiovascular Group.
