MYNX CONTROL® Vascular Closure Device
The innovative design and predictable deployment of MYNX CONTROL VCD delivers outstanding performance and control for consistently secure arterial closures.
Close with confidence. Leave nothing behind.
MYNX CONTROL VCD integrates dual-mode active sealing and reabsorbability with a next-generation delivery system to maximize predictability, safety, and ease of use in 5F, 6F, and 7F sizes.
Secure extravascular closure in a wide range of clinical scenarios.
With exceptional versatility, MYNX CONTROL VCD offers dependable closure with nothing left behind*—even in cases where using a different vascular closure device might be unsuitable.
Safe for bifurcations2
Useful on antegrade punctures3
No footplates, sutures, or metal implants to impede reaccess
Balloon visualization verifies position
Compatible with procedural sheath limited the need for sheath exchanges.
Deploys and compresses the sealant
Provides visual confirmation of device position for proper sealant deployment
One-step balloon withdrawal
Facilitates ease of use for predictable deployment.
The Science of Active Extravascular Sealing
MYNX CONTROL VCD consists of two configurations of polyethylene glycol (PEG), for durable hemostasis.
No foreign-body reaction or scar tissue formation1
- HYDROLYTIC DEGRADATION
Fully resorbs through hydrolysis—no enzymatic breakdown1
- MYNX GRIP TIP
Activated by body temperature and pH Interlocks with contours of the vessel by actively attaching to the artery, for secure mechanical closure
- MYNX® SEALANT COLUMN
Expands to 3-4 times its original size on contact with blood and subcutaneous fluids, creating a matrix structure for clot formation
Safety by the Numbers.
MYNX CONTROL VCD has been clinically proven to reduce surgical complications, expedite recovery, shorten hospital stays, and increase patient comfort.2-7‡
Increased Patient Comfort
In a blinded, randomized clinical study, pain at closure and pain increase from baseline to close were significantly lower for MYNX CONTROL VCD than Angio-Seal™ vascular closure device.7
Access-site bleeding and vascular injury
Reduced incident rate In a blinded, randomized clinical study, there was a significantly reduced incident rate for MYNX Portfolio of products than Angio-Seal VCD.
