Confluent Surgical has CE-marked for sale in Europe its DuraSeal dural sealant system for preventing cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks in neurosurgery. The synthetic product has been shown in a clinical study to eliminate the incidence of intra-operative CSF leak, said the Waltham, Massachusetts firm. CSF leak is a serious complication of neurosurgical and spinal orthopaedic procedures that occurs after the dura is closed, resulting in improper healing, infection and pain.
