AccessClosure, Inc. Key Developments

AccessClosure Inc. Launches Mynx Ace Vascular Closure Device

AccessClosure Inc. has commercially launched its Mynx Ace Vascular Closure Device, a safe and secure vascular closure product that provides consistent results with a new, easy-to-use deployment system1 to seal femoral artery access sites. The device joins the pioneering line of Mynx extravascular products that help care teams reduce time to hemostasis and ambulation in patients who have undergone diagnostic or interventional endovascular procedures. Mynx closure devices are designed for patient comfort by providing gentle vascular closure without the use of cinching, sutures, or metal implants to enhance patient satisfaction and keep physicians on patient care.2 With Mynx Ace, physicians can consistently close femoral artery access sites through a simple, three-step deployment system. The Mynx Ace system uses AccessClosure's proprietary Grip Technology, a major advancement in sealant technology. Grip Technology employs an extravascular sealant that actively adheres to the artery for safe and secure mechanical closure and dissolves within 30 days, leaving nothing behind in the healed vessel.

Federal Court Shuts Down Janzen Patent Infringement Claim Against AccessClosure, Inc

AccessClosure Inc. has announced that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit denied a request by St. Jude Medical Inc. to rehear an appeal on a double patenting ruling concerning its U.S. Patent No. 7,008,439, covering technologies to close holes in arteries. The U.S. Court of Appeals' decision, holding the Janzen 439 patent invalid, supports the original jury verdict on Dec. 21, 2010 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas. The U.S. Court of Appeals will send the case back to the Texarkana District Court on December 16, 2013, when it issues its mandate.
