Merit Medical Systems has CE-marked its new MBA haemostasis valve. The valve reduces the amount of blood which escapes during the use of interventional devices such as angioplasty balloons and stent catheters, says the South Jordan, Utah-based company. The MBA has a larger inner lumen than other haemostatic valves and can accommodate catheters up to 9 French, claims Merit.
