The FDA has cleared Dallen Medical Tensyn Plug for the treatment of hand and foot injuries.
The FDA cleared a next-generation sternum compression band made by California bone repair company Dallen Medical. The company’s Compressyn Band, used for breastbone closure, features a new polymer coating that older lines of the Compressyn products lack.
Early-stage device company Dallen Medical announced a 1st-in-man study of its Compressyn band, a breast-plate wire closure device designed to help stabilize patients after open heart surgery.
After the sternum is cracked during open-heart surgery, patients require specialized wires to hold the cavity together. The Compressyn band aims to provide "significant improvements in rigid fixation-with-compression solutions over current devices," according to a Dallen statement.
