RISK FACTORS FOR INS INFECTION TYRX Neuro Absorbable
Antibacterial Envelope

Identifying Patients at High Risk for Infection

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

Both the TYRX™ Neuro Absorbable Antibacterial Envelope and the TYRX Cardiac Absorbable Antibacterial Envelope for cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) are designed to help reduce infection, and they share many of the same features.
