Safeguard® Pressure Assisted Device: Trusted Femoral Performance Now Available for Radial Procedures

Many of our customers use the Safeguard Pressure Assisted Device for hemostasis following femoral access procedures because they trust its compression, convenience and comfort. Merit Medical now has the Safeguard Radial™ compression device that offers the same trusted compression after radial procedures.

COMPRESSION 
safeguard

  • The Safeguard Radial’s inflatable bulb focuses compression only where you want it
  • It’s easy to adjust air in the bulb (inflation or deflation) using a standard Luer lock syringe
  • Trusted Compression, Comfort & Convenience
  • Now Available For Your Radial Procedures
  • The base plate and the way the band wraps around the bulb provides stable positioning, not occlusion
  • You already know how important patent hemostasis is for a radial compression device and the Safeguard Radial allows you to achieve patent hemostasis with patient comfort as well

CONVENIENCE 

  • While your patients come in many sizes, Safeguard Radial comes in one size that will fit them all
  • Having one compression device can reduce your inventory, maximize your precious storage space, and streamline ordering
  • You can use any syringe because Safeguard Radial has a standard Luer lock
  • The inflatable bulb lets you take distal and proximal pulses easily
  • The visibility of the clear bulb window allows you to check for oozing

COMFORT 

  • Just like the Safeguard femoral, Safeguard Radial has a soft textile band with no plastic edges and a low profile design

So if you have been using the Safeguard for hemostasis following your femoral procedures, you can trust the Safeguard Radial to provide the same comfortable, convenient performance for radial compression.

Multi-Center Trial Shows Significant Pain Relief For Spine Cancer Patients Following Targeted Radiofrequency Ablation Treatment

Treatment of Metastatic Posterior Vertebral Body Osseous Tumors by Using a Targeted Bipolar Radiofrequency Ablation Device: Technical Note

ReSolve® Biliary Locking Drainage Catheter Receives CE Mark!

resolvebiliary-new

I am pleased to announce that the ReSolve® Biliary Locking Drainage Catheter has received the CE mark and is available for sale in Europe.

These catheters are indicated for drainage of bile within the biliary system. Often biliary systems need to be decompressed due to bile duct stones, extrahepatic, or intrahepatic tumors, and primary sclerosing cholangitis, among other reasons. In addition bile may also need to be diverted from a bile duct leak.

Biliary system lesions do not always occur in the same location in every patient. Because of this, Merit offers catheters with two different drainage hole configurations to accommodate patient anatomy and multiple disease locations.

Correct catheter positioning is important in these procedures. The catheter features a radiopaque marker band near the proximal shaft drainage hole, and non-radiopaque depth markers the entire length of the catheter to help with fast and accurate positioning.

Additional features:

  • Atraumatic pigtail
  • Smooth transitions
  • Large drainage holes
  • Hydrophilic coating
  • Kink resistance
