Mouse Vascular Access Button™: Refined

On October 22nd, 2019 we introduced an improved design of the magnetic one channel mouse Vascular Access Buttons™ in both silicon and felt, as well as the protective aluminum caps. No changes to surgical procedures should be required. Other than the addition of the multi-colored caps, no part numbers changed.
