A wound dressing for abdominal viscera protection in negative-pressure wound therapy

Summary

A Spanish Biomedical Research Institute has developed a wound dressing for abdominal viscera protection in negative-pressure wound therapy that prevents adhesion to the internal organs tissues of the abdominal wall and optimizes the drainage capacity and distribution of negative pressure therapy. The Institute would like to talk to companies interested in commercializing this wound dressing, a services agreement or in a research cooperation agreement to develop it.

Partner sought

Companies involved in the development of devices for negative pressure therapy (TPN) as well as dressings wounds and drainage components of said systems.

Description

A Spanish Biomedical Research Institute has developed a wound dressing for abdominal viscera protection in negative-pressure wound therapy that prevents adhesion to the internal organs tissues of the abdominal wall and optimizes the drainage capacity and distribution of negative pressure therapy. Abdominal compartment syndrome is caused by intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH), leading to ischemia and organ dysfunction. When abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) occurs, it is necessary to establish a system for the management of wounds that facilitates the re-entry into the abdominal cavity and allows successive interventions. Negative pressure therapy (TPN) mitigates intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and prevent its progression to abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS), facilitating the healing and closing of the abdominal cavity. Here the Research Institute presents a wound dressing for abdominal viscera protection in negative-pressure wound therapy (TPN) that prevents adhesion to the internal organs tissues of the abdominal wall and optimizes the drainage capacity and distribution of negative pressure therapy. The Institution would like to talk to companies interested in commercializing this wound dressing, a services agreement or in a research cooperation agreement to develop it. The present technology is available to license.

Advantages and innovations

The main competitive advantages of the wound dressing are: - It avoids its adherence on the tissues, allowing the effluents of the internal organs to drain homogeneously. - It optimizes the distribution of the negative pressure therapy by the wound dressing surface to the most distal areas, improving the drainage capacity.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
