REPEL-CV will be marketed throughout Australia by Tag Medical Pty Ltd., a distributor of cardiac surgery products.

About Adhesions

Adhesions, or scar tissue, occur after virtually all open-heart surgical procedures, often resulting in the heart becoming attached to the sternum and other surrounding tissue surfaces. The presence of adhesions represents a prevalent and serious complication in secondary surgical procedures, increasing the length, cost and risk of the surgical procedure.

About REPEL-CV

REPEL-CV is a bioresorbable adhesion barrier film designed to be placed over the surface of the heart at the conclusion of an open-heart surgical procedure to reduce the extent and severity of adhesions (scar tissue) that form between the surface of the heart and opposing tissue surfaces following the surgical procedure. It is designed to perform the therapeutic task and then degrade so that it is cleared from the body.
