PolyTouch Medical Ltd. Announces the Submission of a Premarket Application for PatchAssist - an Innovative Mesh Deployment and Placement Device for Laparoscopic Hernia Repair
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. With over 400,000 annual ventral hernia repair procedures in the US, and with laparoscopic surgeries growing over 21% annually, we believe that PatchAssist will become the standard of care in LVHR, will reduce operation time and costs, and will enable an easier and shorter learning curve for surgeons who wish to convert from the open technique to the laparoscopic repair. We are receiving strong indications from surgeons, at all levels of experience, that the product answers a clear clinical need and that they look forward to using this device once it is cleared."
