Brennen Medical Announces Sale of XenMatrix(R)
Date:9/21/2009

ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Brennen Medical, LLC, a leader in biomaterials technology, announces the sale of its XenMatrix(R) device to Davol Inc., a subsidiary of C.R. Bard, Inc. The agreement provides Davol with the worldwide rights and related assets of the hernia products business of Brennen Medical, LLC. This acquisition includes technology for a non crosslinked xenograft device for use in soft tissue repair including hernia and abdominal wall reconstruction.

XenMatrix employs a proprietary technology that maintains an acellular structurally intact, non crosslinked porcine dermal matrix for enhanced biocompatibility in host tissue. This dermal matrix supports revascularization, remodeling and regeneration for abdominal wall and hernia repairs. Recently published data in the American Journal of Surgery from the Brigham and Women's Hospital studied the use of XenMatrix in complex abdominal wall defects and reported a 93% success rate with over 16 months follow-up.

"We are extremely pleased with the successful clinical outcomes of XenMatrix. Now with the acquisition by C.R. Bard, this product will reach a far greater number of patients worldwide, who will truly benefit from this device," said Phillip Lawin, PhD, President of Brennen Medical.
