The Mynx VCD uses a special hydrogel to form a seal and stop any bleeding at the puncture site. This painless, efficient procedure allows the patient to move sooner, and the gel is absorbed into the body in a few days.
Eisenhower’s Puneet Khanna,MD, Board Certified Interventional Cardiologist at Desert Cardiology Consultants’Medical Group, was not only the first physician to utilize the device, but also aided in its design. “It was gratifying to see nearly five years’ worth of work come to fruition with Federal Drug Administration approval, and then to treat the first patient in the United States just two days later,” says Dr. Khanna.
