Merit Medical have announced the commercial launch of the PreludeSYNC EVO radial compression device in the USA. The PreludeSYNC EVO is a sterile, single-use, disposable device used to assist in gaining haemostasis of the arterial percutaneous access site following catheterisation procedures.
Merit Medical’s launch of the PreludeSYNC EVO follows nearly two decades of innovation in haemostasis band products, the company asserts. The PreludeSYNC EVO was designed to provide operators improved clarity, safety, and patient comfort. According to a press release, the clear balloon and curved backer plate provide optimal visualisation of the puncture site, facilitating easy placement. The band, which is easily adjustable and fits securely around a patient’s wrist, comes in two sizes (24cm and 29cm). The device also features the new Slip-n-Lock Connection for safe and easy inflation and deflation.
“A core part of Merit Medical’s mission is to continually evolve and improve our product offerings, including in the area of access and hemostasis,” says Fred P Lampropoulos, Merit Medical’s founder, chair, and CEO. “Accordingly, the PreludeSYNC EVO is a needed solution that elevates the radial compression experience for operators and their patients. The Merit leadership team is excited to put the EVO in the hands of specialists across the USA.”
