What is an Angio-Seal closure device?

Angio-seal is a medical device indicated for use in closing and reducing time to hemostasis at the femoral arterial puncture site in patients who have undergone diagnostic angiography procedures or interventional procedures (minimal artery diameter of 4mm).

What is Mynx closure device made of?

The Mynx Ace device uses a dual-action GRIP™ sealant composed of polyethylene glycol (PEG) to provide secure extravascular closure. Upon deployment, the human body temperature and pH level cause the Grip sealant to soften and interlock with the contours of the vessel wall, forming a secure seal (Figure 2).

How do you deploy Angio seals?
