“The significant time savings and reduced variability (associated with the Zip device) may improve overall procedure cost and scheduling efficiency.”
“I have personally used the Zip device in over 100 electrophysiology implant cases. The device is very easy and quick to apply, and simple to peel off 10-14 days post-procedure. I and my patients have found the cosmesis result to be excellent.”
In the first randomized, controlled, prospective study of the Zip in cardiac implantable electronic device (CIED) implantation, the Zip demonstrated 3x faster incision closure compared to sutures.1 It also showed less patient variability in closure time, with no compromise in cosmetic outcomes or patient safety.2
