RISK FACTORS FOR CIED INFECTION TYRX Absorbable Antibacterial Envelope

Identifying Patients at High Risk for Infection

A patient’s procedures, medications, and characteristics significantly increase the risk of cardiac implantable electronic device (CIED)-related infection.1-7 The TYRX™ Absorbable Antibacterial Envelope significantly reduces the incidence of CIED infection for patients with these risk factors.6,8,10,11

As shown below, the device type and procedure type influence the risk level to the patient.
