Date:5/3/2010

MISGAV, Israel, May 3, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- PolyTouch Medical Ltd., a leading developer of laparoscopic hernia mesh placement technologies, today announced that it has filed a Premarket 510(k) Application with the US Food and Drug Administration for PatchAssist, an Innovative Laparoscopic Mesh Deployment and Placement Device that enables accurate mesh placement in laparoscopic ventral hernia repair potentially reducing procedure time by 30%-50%.

"LVHR is a relatively complicated laparoscopic procedure mainly due to the hurdle of mesh deployment and placement stage.
