CE mark for double sided TissuePatch

Tissuemed has been granted CE mark approval for its double sided adhesive patch, named TissuepatchDS. The product will now enter a clinical evaluation phase during which surgeon feedback will be monitored closely from a small number of sites across the UK. The product is indicated for use where apposing tissue surfaces need to be sealed against oozing leaks and may be especially useful in reducing or even obviating the need for insertion of post-operative drains. Clinical evaluations will focus on this end point and be reported prior to full commercialisation of the product.
