Merit Medical Systems, a leading manufacturer and marketer of proprietary devices used primarily in cardiology, radiology, oncology, and endoscopy, has announced the commercial launch of the PreludeSYNC EVO radial compression device in the USA.
PreludeSYNC EVO is a sterile, single-use, disposable device used to assist in gaining hemostasis of the arterial percutaneous access site following catheterization procedures.
Merit Medical’s launch of the PreludeSYNC EVO follows nearly two decades of innovation in hemostasis band products. The PreludeSYNC EVO was designed to provide operators improved clarity, safety, and patient comfort. A clear balloon and curved backer plate provide optimal visualization 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,” said Fred P. Lampropoulos, Merit Medical’s founder, chairman, and chief executive officer.
“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 United States.”
