INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY PROVIDING PATIENTS A SAFER, MORE EFFECTIVE AND LESS COSTLY PROCEDURE FOR VASCULAR ANASTOMOSIS

VessConnect is a medical device designed by Surg Solutions SL, a Barcelona based medical device company.

Surg Solution SL aims to be a world reference company in innovative devices and solutions in the field of vascular and microvascular anastomosis. Our first product, VessConnect, addresses the need of simplifying vascular anastomosis (joining of two vessels), especially in microvascular procedures.

 Vascular anastomosis is an essential surgical procedure in many interventions. Since Alexis Carrel won the Nobel Prize in 1912 for pioneering vascular suturing techniques, joining vessels has remained technically unaltered. Manual vessel suture is time consuming, requires a high level of technical skills , and has an associated high risk of failure and of further complications. . This being true for anastomosis in general, it is even more acutely challenging in microvascular anastomosis where the diameter of a vessel can be of 20 minutes with an estimated 10 to 20% failure rate.

 Surg Solutions VessConnect medical device addresses the issues related to vascular and microvascular anastomosis procedures by providing an easier, faster and safer way to perform these procedures using the memory-shape properties of some advanced materials.

 SurgSolution funding group won the first prize in the second edition of the Health Innovation Contest by Vall d´Hebron Institute of Research (VHIR) for VessConnect project in 2015. Moreover, it received the Best Innovative Start-up award at the XVI Creatic Prizes of the Technocampus Mataró in 2016.
