Italian Neuro Society Congress

SINCH June-201524th – 26th June saw Tissuemed join its partner in Italy, Aptiva Medical, for the annual gathering of the Italian Neurosurgical Society (SINCH). This year’s meeting took place in the beautiful city of Naples, with over 500 delegates attending from across the country and notable International speakers.

During the meeting Aptiva showcased TissuePatchDural, Tissuemed’s dural sealant film. In the period since last year’s event, neurosurgeons from the Besta Institute in Milan have published a retrospective review of clinical data from a series of higher risk posterior fossa cases treated with TissuePatchDural or a hydrogel sealant.

In this series, TissuePatchDural was more effective in preventing CSF leaks than the comparator product. The complete manuscript is available online via this link.
