Cohera Medical has entered the European market with its first product offering, TissuGlu® Surgical Adhesive,* which is indicated in the European market for the approximation of tissue layers where subcutaneous deadspace exists between the tissue planes in large flap surgical procedures such as abdominoplasty. Cohera’s researchers designed TissuGlu to help surgeons improve outcomes and eliminate the need for surgical drains in a wide range of surgical procedures. TissuGlu Surgical Adhesive is resorbable, biocompatible for internal use, uses no human or animal based ingredients and forms a strong bond between tissues.
Cohera Medical’s scientific leaders continue to explore new clinical applications for the company’s patented technologies, including new surgical adhesives and sealants that target other medical applications. This includes their latest innovation, Sylys® Surgical Sealant† for sealing gastrointestinal anastomoses, and a new product for hernia mesh fixation.
Sylys is designed to help reduce leakage in gastrointestinal procedures by providing additional support to the anastomosis during the first few days of healing, when the development of leaks is most likely to occur. The sealant is applied as a viscous fluid which cures rapidly to create a flexible, elastomeric seal upon application to the tissue. In-vivo, the product degrades in a few weeks and is resorbed by the body.
†Disclaimer: Hernia mesh fixation and bowel sealant products are not currently available for sale or distribution and have not been approved by the U.S. FDA or any other country’s regulatory authority. The devices described are currently limited to non-human investigational use only.
