Access System

WATCHMAN FXD CURVE™ ACCESS SYSTEM is designed for the WATCHMAN FLX™ LAAC Device, bringing smoother deployment and successful placement to the delivery of the most studied and implanted LAAC device in the world.

Key Resources

New Curve Shape Designs

Single and Double Curve shape designs simplify sheath selection and enhance the ability to reach the expanded range of anatomies treated with the WATCHMAN FLX LAAC device.  

Enhanced Outer Diameter

A 15F outer diameter provides equivalent kink performance to WATCHMAN TruSeal and is still compatible to a 16F venous introducer.  

Optimized Braiding

Updated braiding along the sheath allows for 3x better torque transmission for greater control and more predictable access into the LAA.
