Have you used a percutaneous venous cannula like this?

We are looking for a percutaneous cannula that transits the internal jugular to the superior vena cava, right atrium, and inferior vena cava.
I have looked at this cannula online, but it looks like it is used for beating heart surgery or ECMO?
The discussion came up because we were doing a sub-diaphragmatic renal tumor that had invaded the IVC.
Anybody with any history using this particular cannula? As well- any recommendations for a a similar cannula (that could be used for superior venous cannulation and drainage for CPB) or your own solutions, cannula sizes, and flow rates?
Any help or insight would be appreciated.
