Project Description


AnastoClip GC and AnastoClip VCS Vessel Closure Systems are designed to provide rapid and precise vascular anastomosis. The AnastoClip GC Vessel Closure System has new “grippier” clips that create a more secure vascular anastomosis. Both AnastoClip GC and AnastoClip VCS Clips are placed in an interrupted fashion to facilitate a compliant anastomosis. The interrupted placement of the clips allows the anastomosis to contract and expand to accommodate pulsatile flow.

AnastoClip GC & AnastoClip VCS

  • Multiple sizes enable perfect sizing for a variety of applications
  • Rotating ergonomic handle provides for secure grip and device maneuverability of device.
  • Interrupted, Compliant Anastomotic Line
  • Fewer Revisions to Maintain Functional Patency**
  • Reduced procedure time†

Benefits of the AnastoClip GC:

  • Grippier AnastoClip GC clips feature 50% higher retention force. The new design penetrates the vessel wall to create a more secure anastomosis.*


  • AV fistulas
  • Peripheral bypass grafting
  • Arteriotomy and venotomy
  • Vessel repair

A study in the Journal of Vascular Surgery concluded that the AnastoClip: “…significantly improved patency and reduced revision rates for clipped AVF compared with conventionally sutured constructs.”**
