Tissuemed: Around the World in August

August was a busy month for the neurosurgical community. At Tissuemed we were delighted to participate in two notable surgical conferences held in Europe and Asia

Early in the month, Guiyang hosted the 16th Annual Meeting of the Chinese Neurosurgical Society. The CNS is the largest academic conference for the specialty in China, and attracted more than 3000 neurosurgeons! Tissuemed’s partner in China actively supported this year’s event, dedicating one of their six booths to TissuePatch. There was a great deal of interest in TissuePatch Sealant Film, the first surgical sealant with a broad indication, including dural closure, registered for use in China.

More recently, Istanbul hosted the 16th World Congress of Neurosurgery (20-25th August). Peter Maver, Tissuemed’s Head of Sales was joined and supported by Tissuemed’s partner in Turkey, Medeltip (pictured above). The World Congress is held every 4 years, and this year’s event saw significant numbers of surgeons from South America, Africa, the Middle East, with notable local attendees from the Turkish neurosurgical community.

David Mandley, Tissuemed’s CEO commented; ‘These events are excellent opportunities to interact with customers and present Tissuemed’s dural sealant film, TissuePatchDural.  We look forward to continuing to support these initiatives.”

The next World Neurosurgery congress (interim meeting) will be held in Beijing, China in 2019.
