Unique Three-Dimensional Structure

SyvekExcel is a noninvasive vascular access hemostasis system that utilizes poly-N-acetyl glucosamine fibers in a unique lyophilized three-dimensional structure. SyvekExcel features an increased polymer content and expanded surface area to achieve faster, easier, effective hemostasis.

Accelerated and Complete Hemostatic Action

  • Proven results in ACTs up to 3001
  • Allows for almost immediate sheath pull after the procedure2
  • Can reduce time to ambulation for PCI patients to two hours2

Ideal for Anticoagulated Patients

SyvekExcel is effective for treating anticoagulated patients that are undergoing femoral vascular catheterization procedures. Evidence shows that SyvekExcel consistently demonstrates rapid hemostatic action for coagulopathies caused by:

  • Heparin1
  • Angiomax® (bivalirudin)1,2
  • Plavix® (clopidogrel) 1,2
  • GPIIbIIIa-receptor antagonists1,2
  • Aspirin1, 2

Allows for Reaccess to the Puncture Site

  • No residual foreign material3
  • No groin/anatomy changes4
  • Efficient for a wide range of sheath sizes3
  • Less risk of infection3
  • No mechanical failure

Easy to Use and Apply

    Each SyvekExcel Vascular Access Hemostasis System® package contains:
  • SyvekExcel 3 cm x 4 cm lyophilized pad of poly-N-acetyl glucosamine with foam backing
  • Disposable Polypropylene support structure which snaps on to a reusable "Plexiglas® handle"
  • Tegaderm® transparent adhesive bandage.

    Instructions for Use
  • Open SyvekExcel and deliver it to the sterile field
  • Hold occlusive pressure proximal to the puncture site and remove the sheath
  • Allow 1-2 drops of blood from site
  • Immediately place SyvekExcel over the puncture site and hold firm pressure, while continuing to hold proximal pressure
  • Slowly decrease amount of proximal pressure after 4 to 6 minutes (3 – 4 minutes for diagnostic procedures) while continuing to apply firm compression over the puncture site
  • Hold firm pressure on the puncture site until hemostasis is achieved, then slowly release
  • Assess the site without disturbing SyvekExcel, then cover with a transparent dressing

    Removing SyvekExcel
  • Soak SyvekExcel with water
  • Gently peel off SyvekExcel
