Additional Device Information for TYRX™ Cardiac and Neuro Antibacterial Envelopes

The TYRX™ Cardiac and Neuro Absorbable Antibacterial Envelopes are NOT indicated for use in patients who have an allergy, or history of allergies, to tetracyclines, Rifampin, or absorbable sutures. The TYRX Cardiac and Neuro Absorbable Antibacterial Envelopes are also NOT indicated for use in patients with contaminated or infected wounds, or Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). The use of these products 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 a TYRX Cardiac and Neuro Absorbable Antibacterial Envelope, and who are also taking methoxyflurane, should be monitored carefully for signs of renal toxicity.

Treatment with these antibacterial envelopes is prescribed by your physician. This treatment is not for everyone. Please talk to your doctor to see if it is right for you. Your physician should discuss all potential benefits and risks with you. Although many patients benefit from the use of this treatment, results may vary.
