Primequal Receives CE Mark for Talent IH™, the First of a New Generation of Surgical Injection Solutions
First application is surgical glue delivery for painless and safe hernia repair surgery with staples, tackers or stitches
GENEVA, Switzerland and GLAND, Switzerland, April 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Primequal, a world leader in innovative delivery systems for surgery and robotic procedures, announced today the receipt of CE Mark approval for Talent IHTM, the first product emanating from the Company’s game-changing surgical injection technology. Talent IH is a surgical glue applicator that provides cost-effective and strong mesh fixation during inguinal hernia surgery. As no staples, tackers and stitches are needed, using Talent IH is painless and allows patients to recover more quickly.
“Gaining CE Mark for Talent IH is a significant accomplishment for Primequal as this application required rigorous regulatory review against very high clinical and safety standards. It further demonstrates our ability to deliver innovative surgical products that provide superior benefits to clinicians and patients, particularly at a time when regulatory authorities are highlighting the higher risks and accidents often seen with surgical staplers,” said David Weill, Founder and CEO of Primequal.
