Teleflex Inc. said it bought privately held medical device company Essential Medical Inc for an undisclosed amount.
Essential Medical markets Manta, a device used to close large bore punctures in the arteries following heart-related procedures.
The deal will expand the company's presence in the structural heart and endovascular aneurysm repair markets, said Teleflex President and CEO Liam Kelly.
Endovascular aneurysm repair involves inserting a graft within the weakened area of an artery through small incisions, without using an abdominal surgery.
Wayne, Pa.-based Teleflex added that Manta is not approved for sale or distribution in the U.S.
