Tissuemed is pleased to publish the latest feedback from thoracic surgeons who are using TissuePatchThoracic as part of their management of intra- and post-operative air leaks.
Following the launch of TissuePatchThoracic at the EACTS congress in Geneva in September 2010, the product has been used by an increasing number of surgeons in both open and minimally invasive procedures, with clinicians taking advantage of Tissuemed’s VATS Delivery System.
For Tissuemed, David Mandley, Director responsible for Clinical Affairs commented, “Feedback from surgeons using Tissuemed’s surgical sealant films is invaluable and provides important information supporting our post market surveillance activities. This latest feedback in the period for the first three months since launch is extremely encouraging, and supports our claim that the product is an effective and easy to use adjunct for air leak management in patients undergoing open and minimally invasive thoracic surgery. We appreciate our customers reporting their experiences and I look forward to continuing to share this information with the community”.
