Mynx closure devices are designed for patient comfort by providing
gentle vascular closure without the use of cinching, sutures, or metal
implants to enhance patient satisfaction and keep physicians on the
leading edge of patient care.2 With Mynx Ace, physicians can
consistently close femoral artery access sites through a simple,
three-step deployment system. The Mynx Ace system uses AccessClosure's
proprietary Grip Technology™, a major advancement in sealant technology.
Grip Technology employs an extravascular sealant that actively adheres
to the artery for safe and secure mechanical closure and dissolves
within 30 days, leaving nothing behind in the healed vessel.
"After completing over 50 cases with Mynx Ace, I have found the system
provides consistent results while offering the safety, security and
patient-friendly advancements I have come to trust in Mynx products,"
said Rajesh Dave, MD, a cardiologist from Holy Spirit Hospital in Camp
Hill, PA. "The advancements have made Mynx Ace a preferred closure
device in my practice."
Mynx Ace can be used with patients who have undergone diagnostic or
interventional endovascular procedures utilizing a 5F, 6F or 7F
procedural sheath. It is estimated that more than 2.1 million of these
procedures are conducted each year in the United States.
