Financial backers of Salient Surgical Technologies Inc. are again stepping up to protect their investments, ponying up $15 million in new funding while they wait for an eventual liquidity event.

The deal is the Portsmouth, N.H.-based company's seventh funding round over the past decade and its second since it shelved plans for an initial public offering in late August, 2008. Since then, venture funds and other institutional investors have pumped nearly $33 million into Salient, including the current round, building on previous financing efforts totaling almost $94 million.
