Terumo Cardiovascular Group

Beating Heart Products Simple. Smart. Solutions.

Work smarter without skipping a beat.

Terumo's Beating Heart Products offer your surgical team a versatile combination of the strongest stabilization, lowest profile and easiest positioning, and supports both traditional off-pump and minimally invasive cardiac surgery.

Titan Stabilizer

Terumo Titan Stabilizers provide optimal positioning, stabilization and coronary artery isolation during Beating Heart surgery.

  • Dynamic tissue adherence ensures secure stabilization on the beating heart
  • Micro-footprint vacuum compression maintains position of the device
  • Malleable metal design allows surgeons to bend and conform to anatomic shapes
  • Flexible articulating positioning (360° ball or sliding shaft quick-connect design)
