In a feature article for Chemistry World, science writer Andy Extance discovers how new medical adhesives are overcoming the difficulties bodily fluids cause conventional polymers. In his piece, which you can find here, the author talks extensively about TissuePatch, focusing on its chemistry, which sees the material being able to adhere to moist bodily tissues, then ultimately degrade in situ.
The article places TissuePatch firmly in the pantheon of “next generation” sealants that outperform traditional fibrin glues and toxic cyanoacrylates.
For Tissuemed, CEO David Mandley states; “It’s a feather in Tissuemed’s cap that our sophisticated, science-based approach to closure of soft tissues has been recognised by a presitigious publication like Chemistry World. While the magazine is not likely to be on the reading list of many of our surgeon customers, it’s very encouraging to gain this endorsement which clearly rubber-stamps the underlying technology.”
