Cardiovascular surgery, also referred to as cardiac surgery or heart surgery, describes any surgical procedure that involves the heart or the blood vessels that carry blood to and from the heart. This type of operation is vital for patients suffering from heart problems and the surgeries involved must be executed with the utmost accuracy and precision. Whether a patient is dealing with the after-effects of a heart attack, potential blood clots, irregular heartbeats, opening blocked or narrowed arteries, congenital heart problems, or damaged and diseased heart valves, cardiovascular surgeons are responsible for helping improve their health for the betterment of their life!

a FISSO Patient Arm Board



Traditional arm boards have a highly limited range of motion which makes them difficult to work with inside cardiovascular surgery rooms. FISSO Patient Arm Boards on the other hand provide surgeons with vast versatility and stability — two things every cardiac surgery requires. To further compare traditional arm boards to our high-quality option, traditional options often required as many as five additional accessories to function well. FISSO Patient Arm Boards feature a one-step setup design that provides a dynamic range of motion that is impossible with other versions. Not to mention, its central locking mechanism supports and positions patient arms with ease, speed, and stability.

Cardiovascular surgeons will love their compact design, as these arm positioners free up essential space around the operating table!
