The dual-stage venous cannula is widely used but can obstruct the surgeon's view and interfere with operative procedures in the aortic root. We designed a new stainless steel sheath for a dual-stage venous cannula that enables the cannula to bend and maintain the appropriate angle for the surgical procedures. We suggest that operative procedures in the aortic root can be performed faster during safety cardiopulmonary bypass by use of a dual-stage venous cannula bent by application of this new sheath.
