Epic MD

EpicMD develops a new Fascia Closure Device

The Need

Out of 400,000 hospital needle stick injuries /year in US (CDC) 59% (230K) of needle injuries occur during fascia closure (CDC). Surgeons who cause a needle-stick injury, are suspended from the operation room for up to 6 months!

Development of incisional hernia after open abdominal surgery is a major cause of post-operative morbidity.


Development Stage

Dispensable low cost device with a patented anchor system. Ratchet mechanism for lock up and closure of sutures with electrical driven power for easy use.
