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.
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
