SafeStitch Medical agrees with Herniamesh to distribute mesh

SafeStitch Medical : 01 August, 2012  (Company News)
SafeStitch Medical is entering in a distribution agreement with Herniamesh, an Italian mesh manufacturer operating in the biomedical market, to distribute mesh used for inguinal and ventral hernia repair in the USA.
The deal adds another product line for SafeStitch Medical, and complements the currently available AMID Hernia Fixation Device, a device that allows for mesh manipulation, mesh fixation and skin closure.

SafeStitch Medical will be distributing a light weight monofilament polypropylene mesh that is knitted with quadriaxial technology, a patent-pending process invented and developed by Herniamesh called Hermesh 8. This technology allows for the same tensile strength and elongation in all directions with its light and porous characteristics.

"We are thrilled to be working with Herniamesh. This agreement allows us to expand our product line, offering physicians more tools in the operating room while providing growth for the company. Herniamesh's specialization in the design and production of surgical mesh in polypropylene based on new technologies and specific surgical techniques was attractive," said Jeffrey Spragens, Chief Executive Officer and President of SafeStitch Medical.

Herniamesh produces and distributes medical devices for inguinal and abdominal hernioplasty, incontinence, wound care and pressure ulcers. Located in Chivasso (Turin), Italy, Herniamesh was founded in 1995.

"SafeStitch Medical's AMID HFD is an innovative device. Considering that Herniamesh has innovation and internationalization as the main topics of its strategy, it is an opportunity and a pleasure to collaborate with SafeStitch Medical. We believe the agreement signed by SafeStitch and Herniamesh will be able to spread worldwide sales of the AMID HFD device and Herniamesh surgical meshes," said Dott. Domenico Martorana, General Director of Herniamesh. "We believe the talented individuals of Herniamesh and SafeStitch will be able to make this agreement a benchmark for the reciprocal success of both companies and in expectation of achieving long term results."

The AMID Hernia Fixation Device was created to offer an innovative alternative to manual suturing for inguinal and ventral hernia repair using the Lichtenstein method. The design fixates mesh by delivering staples in a parallel plane to the femoral vessels, which may help avoid vascular injury. The AMID Hernia Fixation Device and Hermesh 8 are sold throughout the United States.
