Tissuemed to attend Mesothelioma congress

As conference season continues, Tissuemed will be heading to the ICC in Birmingham, UK next week(1-4 May) to participate and exhibit at the meeting of the International Mesothelioma Interest Group (iMig). This biennial event draws experts from around the world to present and discuss the latest developments in Mesothelioma research.

Tissuemed is looking forward to presenting its Tissuepatch™ range of surgical sealant films, specifically designed to control air leaks in thoracic surgery. Unfortunately such post-op leaks, leading to prolonged hospital stay are a recognised complication for patients treated surgically for Mesothelioma.

Thoracic surgeons at a number of specialist UK centres, including the Glenfield Hospital, Leicester, are currently using Tissuepatch to minimise post-op air leaks, with the aim of reducing hospital stay.
