Angelini Pharma—Research and Commitment in Disinfection
The remarkable FistulaFinder® was invented and introduced by Dr. David L. Cull, a nationally recognized vascular surgeon. Concerned with the high percentage of surgical interventions required for patients undergoing dialysis, he set to work trying to find practical solutions to improve present day vascular technology. He received national recognition for one of his vascular innovations by being a finalist in the 2006 History Channel’s Invent Now® Challenge. Dr Cull was chosen from 4,300 submissions and was featured on the show "Modern Marvels."
The FistulaFinder is a simple device engineered to locate and stabilize arteriovenous fistulas for cannulation. The device is placed near the fistula on the patient’s arm or leg. The technician or home patient then depresses the contact plate which causes a compression ridge to act like a tourniquet. This provides localized pressure at the cannulation site controlled by hand. The resulting increase in pressure then causes the fistula to appear between the two stabilizer prongs. These prongs or "feet" not only help stabilize the fistula, but prevent it from rolling during cannulation. Once the fistula is located and stabilized, cannulation is made significantly easier by using the position guides, which provide a visual aim point for needle entry. This design adds a VISUAL dimension to what has been a purely TACTILE skill.
At CreatiVasc Medical, we believe the FistulaFinder is a revolutionary device that will help to improve the quality of life for those suffering from renal disease.

The HemaStrap, by Hema Assistance Products, is a lightweight fabric strap that is comfortable, easy to use, and does not interfere with dialysis or infusion treatment. It is designed to secure and stabilize dialysis/infusion tubing during patient treatment to minimize tugging and painful infiltration.
Our patented strap comes in three (3) different sizes: adult large and small, and youth for pediatrics. The adult sizes (Hemastrap HA 600-077 or HP 540-077) can be adjusted quickly and easily by marking the hook area of the strap with a soft lead pencil or marker and trimming with scissors, leaving at least 3/4 of an inch of hooking. For most patients, adjustment of the youth Hemastrap (HY 540-077) will not be necessary.
The Hemastrap is designed to be worn around the patient’s wrist by inserting the hook strap through the black D-ring. Secure the strap by folding the hook fasteners, located at the end of the strap, against the felt. Loosen the infusion retainer straps on the dorsal surface of the wrist. After the infusion is started, secure the tubing under the retaining straps.
To place orders or for more information, a HemaStrap representative can be reached at 727-410-0150.
