Terumo Cardiovascular Group

History

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.

Terumo Corporation, Terumo CV Group's parent company, spans an even greater time period in medical device development. Its first product, a clinical thermometer, was developed in the early 1920s. It has continued to grow and is now one of the largest medical device manufacturers in the world. Visit Terumo Corporation's website to view their full history.

Today, in virtually every cardiac surgery center around the world, heart teams choose products made by Terumo CV Group.
