About CSMG's Tissue-Bonding/Welding Technology

CSMG's patented tissue-bonding device bonds through radio-frequency fusion and reconnects living soft biological tissue (organs) without the use of foreign matter or conventional wound closing devices such as sutures, staples, sealant or glues. The technology leaves little or no scar visible to the naked eye after a few months. Unlike other tissue coagulation methods, the CSMG patented technology bonds and reconnects incised tissue, avoiding destruction of the tissue from charring, searing and necrosis by using a patented low-heat delivery method aimed at restoration of the normal functions of the live organs and tissue. United States and Australia patents have been issued with other U.S. and foreign patents pending.

Almost 3,000 successful human surgeries in clinical trials have been completed in Ukraine on various organs using a number of types of procedures. Today, surgeons at four Ukraine hospitals and clinics are using the tissue bonding/welding technology in clinical trials and performing between 80 and 100 new surgeries each month for open and laparoscopic surgical procedures and techniques. The procedures so far have involved the bonding and reconnecting of incised or separated human tissues in the following body areas -- nasal septum, intestine, stomach, skin, gall bladder, liver, spleen, blood vessels, nerves, alba linea, uterus, fallopian tube, ovary and testicles, dura-matter, lung -- while restoring the normal function of the body organ or tissue.
