The U.S. Food and Drug Administration hopped onto Serica Technologies Inc.’s SeriScaffold product, granting the silk-based surgical mesh clearance to hit the market.
The Medford-based growth-stage device maker’s flagship product is designed to repair and remodel damaged connective tissue, avoiding the erosion and scar formation that can result from surgery.
The company believes SeriScaffold could potentially be used in the 860,000 aesthetic augmentation and reconstructive surgical procedures conducted annually in the U.S. and in other procedures, including rotator cuff and hernia repair operations.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
