DURHAM, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HyperBranch Medical Technology, Inc. announced today that it has received a CE Mark for AdherusTM Spinal Sealant. AdherusTM Spinal Sealant is used in spinal surgeries where a water tight seal is required to prevent cerebrospinal fluid leakage from the dural repair. Prevention of cerebrospinal fluid leaks should benefit the patient in shorter hospital stays and fewer post-surgical complications such as reduced pain and fewer infections. Adherus Spinal Sealant also acts as an adhesion barrier, thereby simplifying subsequent surgeries should the need arise. The unique, single use device is terminally sterilized and can be applied in both Open and MIS procedures through either a 100mm or 150 mm tip. The CE Mark provides regulatory approval for the company to begin sales in Europe and other countries outside the U.S.
