Secant Medical Brings Versatile Biomaterials and Coated Composite Structures to MD&M West

Jan 28, 2015
Perkasie, Penna. – January 28, 2015 – Secant Medical will present its latest advances in biomaterials, coated composite structures, and biomedical textiles during the MD&M West tradeshow, February 10–12, 2015, at booth #1973. The company’s team will showcase a variety of polymeric and metallic biomedical structures that can be used in the design of medical devices for cardiovasculargeneral surgeryneurovascular and orthopedicindications.

Secant Medical will also highlight the uses of Regenerez® poly(glycerol sebacate) in reinforced composites and as a coating on various structures. Regenerez is the next-generation bioresorbable resin that serves as a platform for regenerative medicine, offering the potential to create a more favorable environment to promote tissue regeneration with a reduced inflammatory response compared to other bioresorbable materials.

“Textile-reinforced composites formed with Regenerez have a diverse range of potential applications, including hernia and other compliant meshes, orthopedics and soft tissue repair products such as biomimetic tendon and ligament replacements, and implants that require partial or full-stage resorption,” says Ryan Heniford, business development director at Secant Medical. “We’re responding to what the market needs—a bioresorbable material that has tunable mechanical properties, enabling a functional implant that encourages healing without an acute inflammatory response.”

When: February 10–12, 2015
Where: Booth #1973. Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, CA.
