Hemostasis Management:
From active vascular closure to compression-assist devices, St. Jude Medical has the most complete portfolio of products to aid physicians in achieving hemostasis following cardiovascular interventions. St. Jude Medical presents the eighth generation of the successful Angio-Seal product family with the most advanced design yet - the Angio-Seal Evolution. With the addition of two compression-assist devices following the acquisition of Radi Medical Systems, RadiStop Compression-Assist Device and FemoStop Gold Compression-Assist Device, the company can now offer physicians a full spectrum of closure technology to aid hemostasis. * Angio-Seal Evolution Vascular Closure Device: The new Angio-Seal Evolution device incorporates its repeatedly proven active closure system using a fully bioabsorbable anchor with a new, simpler system for deployment. This next-generation product from the industry-leading Angio-Seal product line was designed to reduce the number of necessary steps for closure and to assist physicians in overcoming procedural variables. The need to manually compact the collagen was eliminated, and only one suture cut is required. The Angio-Seal Evolution has received FDA and CE Mark approval. * Other Products on Display: Angio-Seal VIP, RadiStop Compression-Assist Device and FemoStop Gold Compression-Assist Device.
