Polyganics takes transparent nerve guide to the EU:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Dutch firm Polyganics has gained EU market clearance for its resorbable and transparent synthetic nerve guide, Neurolac, for repairing peripheral nerve damage. The tube-shaped device is sutured to both ends of the transected nerve and guides the outgrowing nerve in a protective environment, preventing neuroma formation. After the nerve function has been restored, the nerve guide is resorbed by the body. The product's transparency, which the Groningen firm says is a first-of-its-kind in Europe, allows surgeons to see what they are doing and facilitates easy and reliable closure of the nerve gap. Neurolac is already cleared in the US.
