Abstract: The Tentacles device provided excellent access in multivessel OPCAB surgery. Haemodynamic stability was maintained in all patients; however additional catecholamine support was used when the heart was displaced. This was the case when carrying out an anastomosis on the anterior, lateral, or posterior wall.

“…The Tentacles NEO heart positioner offers the following advantages. 1,6 First, small suction cups can be attached to the heart one-by-one; thus, stepwise displacement of the heart can be achieved. This technique is quite useful in the MICS CABG procedure because manual displacement of the heart is nearly impossible in a limited working space.…”

“…A further thought concerns the longitudinal shortening of the ventricles that could be impeded by the use of apical suction devices [Abicht 2011]. The swivel joint of the suction cup enables systolic rotation of the apex but inhibits any change in position.…”
