AccessClosure adds 5F device to vascular closure line
AccessClosure has released its newest addition to the Mynx vascular closure family, the Mynx M5.

The M5 can be delivered directly through a 5 French (5F) cardiovascular sheath without enlarging the arterial hole or traumatizing the surrounding tissue in the process, according to the Mountain View, Calif.-based company. Typically, procedural sheaths that are 5F in size are used in diagnostic coronary and peripheral catheterizations.

The Mynx vascular closure device was approved by the FDA for 6F and 7F cardiovascular procedures in May 2007.
