Medical Ingenuities Conducts First Commercial Cases with Transformational Radial Hemostasis Band System to Achieve Patent Hemostasis
On February 21st, board-certified cardiologist, Dr. Vivek V. Kumar, completed 4 radial cases at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center in Florida using the Medical Ingenuities PH Band System.
The PH Band is a novel medical device that is used to close the arteriotomy of a radial artery following a Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) procedure and is designed to establish and maintain patent hemostasis prior to discharging the patient from the Hospital. It meets Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions’ (SCAI) Guidelines of achieving patent hemostasis which initiates immediate healing, reduces compression times and complications. According to Dr. Jimmy Kerrigan, an interventional cardiologist at Ascension Saint Thomas Heart in Nashville, “The biggest problem with radial closure today is that we are just guessing that we are achieving patent hemostasis.”
