The University awarded a contract for Venouse Vascular Closure System (VVCS).
The Cardiva Medical Venouse Vascular Closure System (VVCS) is intended to seal the femoral vein access site(s) at the completion of the procedure. The system consists of a sterile disposable vascular closure catheter that houses a re-absorbable collagen patch, and the VASCADE MVP Clip. The system is designed to deliver a resorbable collagen patch, extra-vascularly, at the venotomy site to aid in achieving hemostasis in patients.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical services necessary for the delivery of care and treatment at medical, dental, or veterinary teaching facilities utilized by SIU or U of I (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) Cardiva Medical?s VVCS has to do with direct patient treatment and care. Without access to these specific supplies the Hospital would not be able to offer procedures requiring femoral vein access site(s) that in turn would drive patients else where and result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
