Bio-Vascular has received US 510(k) clearance to market Dura-Guard, its repair patch for neurosurgery. Surgeons normally use either the patient's own tissue, which requires a second procedure, or tissue-bank material, which carries a risk of infection. The patch, which is made from bovine pericardium will be launched at the Joint International Congress on Minimally Invasive Techniques in Neurosurgery and Otolaryngology in Pittsburgh later this month.
