osthetics if offered with PatchAssist. We are currently considering a number of strategic options to commercialize PatchAssist."

Karl A. LeBlanc, MD, MBA, FACS, a member of the PolyTouch Medical Advisory Board and Clinical Professor of Surgery, Louisiana State University School of Medicine, commented: "PolyTouch has been working very diligently to produce a product that fills a need that surgeons have long desired. The PatchAssist Device represents a first step in the technology of PolyTouch. This device will greatly enhance the repair of ventral and incisional hernias. It will make the introduction, manipulation and fixation of any prosthetic material that will be used in the repair of these hernias much easier. The FDA 510(k) represents an acknowledgement that this laparoscopic instrument will benefit the surgical technique but most importantly, the patient. It will ultimately save costs because the time saved with the use of the PatchAssist will be significant."

David Earle, MD, FACS, a member of the PolyTouch Medical Advisory Board and Assistant Professor of Surgery, Tufts University School of Medicine, commented: "When I first saw the device, I was intrigued. It had the potential to really improve the way both specialists and general surgeons perform laparoscopic hernia repair. When I first used the device, I was convinced."

As previously reported, PolyTouch announced on April 26th, the appointment of Karl A. LeBlanc, MD, MBA, FACS, as Medical Advisor.

PolyTouch announced April 12th, the appointment of Morris E. Franklin Jr., MD, FACS, as Medical Advisor.
