NewsGuard 100/100 Score

SafeStitch Medical®, Inc. (OTCBB:SFES), will attend the Abdominal Wall Reconstruction Conference (AWR) in Washington DC, June 14-16, 2012 to present the AMID™ Hernia Fixation Device (AMID HFD™).    

"We are excited to be exhibiting at the AWR this year. The AMID Hernia Fixation Device is used for both inguinal and ventral hernia surgeries. We believe the ventral hernia repair market can benefit from the AMID HFD," said Jeffrey Spragens, President and CEO of SafeStitch Medical.

For inguinal hernia repair using the Lichtenstein method, the innovative design of the AMID HFD fixates mesh by delivering staples in a parallel plane to the femoral vessels, which may help avoid vascular injury. The AMID HFD allows for mesh manipulation, mesh fixation and skin closure.

"Ventral hernia repair can be complex and time consuming. The AMID HFD is easy to use, has a stapler counter and mesh manipulators that position the mesh before staple firing. We believe the AMID HFD avoids the need for suture placement and tying and may make large ventral hernia repair simpler," said Dr. Charles Filipi, Chief Medical Officer of SafeStitch Medical.
