Resumen:
Un instituto español de investigación sanitaria ha desarrollado un dispositivo de cierre de la pared abdominal que se emplea para prevenir el síndrome compartimental abdominal y permitir un cierre seguro, evitando hernias y necrosis. La tecnología es una alternativa a los dispositivos actuales, que se caracterizan por su complejidad, agresividad para el paciente y problemas que dificultan el trabajo del cirujano. El aparato facilita el acceso a la cavidad abdominal y su tensión se adapta a la presión intraabdominal. El instituto busca empresas interesadas en establecer acuerdos de licencia para comercializar el dispositivo o acuerdos de investigación para continuar con su desarrollo.

Tittle:
Abdominal wall closure device
Summary:
A Spanish Healthcare Research Institute has developed an abdominal wall closure device that can be used to prevent Abdominal Compartment Syndrome (ACS) and provide a safe abdominal closure, avoiding hernias and necrosis.
The Institute seeks companies interested in commercializing this device via licensing agreements or developing it further via research cooperation agreements.
Description:
A Spanish Healthcare Research Institute, working in the field of biomedical sciences, has developed an abdominal wall closure device that can be used to prevent Abdominal Compartment Syndrome (ACS) and provide a safe abdominal closure, avoiding hernias and necrosis.
Primary closure of the abdominal wall is not always recommended. In several occasions like, for example, damage control surgery or abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS), performing a temporary closure becomes a necessity in order to operate with the open abdomen (OA).
Abdominal compartment syndrome is caused by intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH), leading to ischemia and organ dysfunction. When reducing intra-abdominal pressure is not possible performing less invasive techniques, a surgical procedure is required and, for that purpose, there are different methods available for the clinicians.
Existing commercial devices are complex and highly aggressive for the patient and present several problems that hinder the work of surgeons.
Here the Research Institute presents a dynamic traction wall system (DTWS) associated to negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT), that can be used to correct complex abdominal defects while avoiding Abdominal Compartment Syndrome, hernias and necrosis.
The device presented comprises 2 sheets or laminar bodies with semicircular or semi-elliptical geometry that are placed on both sides of the abdominal opening. These sheets incorporate all the necessary elements to exert a controlled traction force, allowing the progressive closure of the abdominal wall and avoiding the generation of abdominal hypertension.
The present technology is available to license. The Healthcare Research Institute would like to talk to companies interested in commercializing this technology, or companies interested in a research cooperation agreement to develop the device.
Advantages and Innovations:
Existing commercial devices are complex and highly aggressive for the patient and present several problems that hinder the work of surgeons.
The main competitive advantages of the abdominal wall closure device are:
- The apparatus provides easy access to the abdominal cavity, and its tension can be adjusted to intra-abdominal pressure.
- Since the system is not fixed in the aponeurotic edge, it preserves the tissue integrity.
- Due to the fenestrated mesh included in this device, negative-pressure wound therapy effectively acts on deep tissues.
Stage of Development:
