TYRX™ Absorbable Antibacterial Envelope:
The TYRX™ Absorbable Antibacterial Envelope is intended to hold a pacemaker pulse generator or defibrillator securely in order to provide a stable environment when implanted in the body. The TYRX Absorbable Antibacterial Envelope contains the antimicrobial agents minocycline and rifampin, which have been shown to reduce infection in an in vivo model of bacterial challenge following surgical implantation of the generator or defibrillator. The TYRX Absorbable Antibacterial Envelope is NOT indicated for use in patients who have an allergy or history of allergies to tetracyclines, rifampin, or absorbable sutures. The TYRX Absorbable Antibacterial Envelope is also NOT indicated for use in patients with contaminated or infected wounds, or systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The use of this product in patients with compromised hepatic and renal function, or in the presence of hepatotoxic or renal toxic medications, should be considered carefully, because minocycline and rifampin can cause additional stress on the hepatic and renal systems. Patients who receive the TYRX Absorbable Antibacterial Envelope and who are also taking methoxyflurane should be monitored carefully for signs of renal toxicity.
Caution: Federal (USA) law limits the device to sale by, or on the order of, a licensed practitioner.
