Reconnection and sealing of tissues following a surgical procedure is currently done via suture, wires or staples, or via surgical sealant. Suturing is time-consuming, can lead to tissue damage and infection, and does not provide effective sealing. Surgical adhesives degrade naturally, are suitable for minimally invasive procedures, and provide immediate sealing.
However, many commercially available adhesives do not adhere to the surgical site due to the wet environment, and are subject to premature degradation due to the acidic environment often found internally. Current adhesive and surgical methods do not effectively address the challenges of internal tissue repair.
Nurami Medical is developing NovaFibreX™, a novel synthetic sealant for internal surgeries which will withstand premature degradation. NovaFibreX™ will utilize a revolutionary formulation of nanofibers and a specially developed bio-material, which will withstand the internal environment of the patient, biodegrading slowly, as necessary, for effective healing, while providing effective adherence to the wet environment.
