Via Surgical Receives FDA Clearance for Its FasTouchtm Absorbable Fixation System

AMIRIM, Israel, March 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Via Surgical Ltd, a leading developer of surgical fixation solutions, today announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance of the FasTouchtm Absorbable Fixation System. The FasTouchtm enables for the first time an automated lockable surgical mesh fixation that is strong and stable yet easily and consistently delivered.

The FasTouch Absorbable Fixation System is intended for fixation of prosthetic material to soft tissues in various minimally invasive and open surgical procedures such as hernia repairs.

"We are closing the loop on soft tissue fixation," said Ofek Levin, Co-Founder and CEO at Via Surgical, "the forces on an implanted hernia mesh are dynamic in nature and could significantly fluctuate due to coughing, movements, etc.

A stable and trust-worthy fixation is crucial for a successful repair. Our data clearly demonstrates that a lockable solution is more reliable in such dynamic environment and minimizes the risk of tack migration or dislodgement that may lead to complications and hernia recurrences. I am excited to announce that FasTouchtm Absorbable is now commercially available in the USA and will be exclusively distributed in this region by Progressive Medical Inc."
