SYNTHETIC SELF-ADHESIVE PATCH (TISSUEPATCH)
TissuePatc is a synthetic, self-adhesive surgical sealant for the avoidance and resolution of leaks in surgery. It is particularly effective in adjunctive closure of lung tissue to minimise air leaks during thoracic surgery procedures. TissuePatch™ requires no advance preparation and can be applied straight from the pack. It can be used in open and thoracoscopic procedures, for which a dedicated delivery and application system is available. By helping surgeons to achieve an airtight closure the product helps in the avoidance of post-operative complications associated with leaks. This means it can contribute to shorter patient stays and reduced healthcare costs.
