Novus Scientific Release: TIGR(R) Matrix Goes Large at the World Hernia Congress 2012

3/26/2012 10:58:25 AM

SINGAPORE, March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Novus Scientific, manufacturer of TIGR® MatrixSurgical Mesh, the world's first long-term resorbable (100% absorbable) synthetic mesh, presents new data and products at the 5th International Hernia Congress in the Big Apple.

Novus Scientific is proud to present a 20cm x 30cm TIGR® Matrix to complement the original 10cm x 15cm version. 20cm x 30cm is a standard size for a wide range of procedures requiring a larger mesh, and as many surgeons around the world are delighted to discover, there is nothing standard about TIGR® Matrix.The larger size will further broaden surgeons' options when looking to offer patients the best possible care without leaving a legacy of permanent material, and at a fraction of the cost of a biologic mesh.

"My team and I have been looking forward to getting our hands on a 20cm x 30cm TIGR® Matrix for some time," said Dr. Garth Jacobsen, Director of the UCSD Hernia Center.

"AHS 2012 and the Big Apple have been chosen as the ideal venue for presenting the new size that customers have been most eager to add to their TIGR® Matrix collection," said Thomas Engstrom, CEO of Novus Scientific. "We listened, we reacted and now we will deliver the big brother to our 10cm x 15cm mesh. That's the beauty of being a young, innovative and energetically managed organisation that thrives off doing the right thing for our customers and their patients!"

In addition, a poster presentation of pre-clinical data showing differences in the quality of connective tissue following repair with TIGR® Matrix compared to a permanent polypropylene mesh will be presented. The data, published in HERNIA, will be available at the Novus Scientific Exhibit Booth (#115) throughout the congress and attendees will also have the opportunity to meet Henrik Hjort, author of the report and co-inventor of TIGR® Matrix Surgical Mesh.

Another poster presentation by Swedish surgeons will present previously unpublished data generated in a unique, clinical study covering 2 years of functional mesh implantation of TIGR® Matrix (first-in-man).

Sportsmen's hernia have been a hot topic recently and Dr. Bruce Ramshaw MD, secretary/treasurer of AHS, will be presenting a poster describing an exceptional outcome using TIGR® Matrix for this much discussed condition.

The 5th International Hernia Congress is being held at the New York Marriot Marquis, March 28-31. Please visit us at the Novus Scientific booth #115.

TIGR® Matrix Surgical Mesh is available for sale in the U.S. and selected countries in Europe and Asia.
