Sprayable Polymer System- Antiadhesion Now But in the Future… (video)


see video of application

Spraygel is a sprayable polymer based system for adhesion prevention.  Approved outside the USA its US trial has been delayed over a bumpy road.  The system works by taking 2 liquids sprayed into the abdominal cavity at laparoscopy.  The liquids react forming a PEG hydrogel.  Think of foam spray insulation.  The stuff makes a coating on organ surfaces preventing scar tissue formation.  What’s more exciting is the potential to combine this with a drug delivery system
