OR YEHUDA, Israel, June 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Exero Medical, developer of a wireless sensor for early detection of anastomotic leaks following GI surgery, today announced that an abstract describing its first in human data was selected for presentation at the 'The Next Big Thing' session of the SAGES 2021 annual meeting. The meeting will be held August 31 – September 3, 2021 in Las Vegas, NV.
The data collected using Exero's sensors is the first ever to demonstrate real-time tracking of colonic tissue health during a surgical procedure. The research was Exero's first step towards implementation of its wireless post-op monitoring technology designed to provide early detection of dire complications such as anastomotic leaks and enable early intervention, saving lives and reducing healthcare cost. The research was performed in collaboration with Charles Knowles (Professor of Surgery) and Gareth Sanger (Professor of Neuropharmacology) at Queen Mary University of London. The clinical study presented was led by Prof. Nir Wasserberg, Director of Colorectal Division at Rabin Medical Center and Chair of the Israel Colorectal Society.
