NICE is unable to make a recommendation on TYRX Absorbable Antibacterial Envelope for preventing infection from cardiac implantable electronic devices because Medtronic withdrew its evidence submission for the appraisal. We will review this decision if the company decides to make a submission.


If NHS organisations wish to consider TYRX Absorbable Antibacterial Envelope for this indication, they should follow the advice on rational local decision making in the NHS Constitution for England and the NHS Commissioning Board and Clinical Commissioning Groups (Responsibilities and Standing Rules) Regulations 2012. This outlines the approach that should be taken when there is no NICE guidance.

NICE will review the position if the company decides that it wants to make an evidence submission.
