Adapting versatile
polymers to improve
surgical outcomes
and patient recovery

Company

Polyganics is a profitable and privately held medical technology company with multiple versatile polymer platforms. The Company develops, manufactures and commercializes innovative bioresorbable medical devices that facilitate tissue repair and regeneration.

Business model

The Company’s business model of product development follows a three-wave approach. The first ‘wave’ resulted in the development of an international business with a product portfolio that addressed the Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) surgery market. This portfolio was sold to Stryker in 2014 and as part of the agreement, Polyganics continues manufacturing these products in the coming years. The second and third waves are focusing on Peripheral Nerve Repair (PNR) & neurosurgery, and General Surgery markets respectively.

Products

Polyganics’ portfolio includes products developed in-house and in collaboration with leading medical technology companies and academic centers of excellence. In the Peripheral Nerve Repair (PNR) and neurosurgery field, the portfolio includes two marketed products:

  • VIVOSORB® for minimizing unwanted tissue adhesions after surgery
  • NEUROLAC® for supporting reconstruction of a peripheral nerve discontinuity following hand surgery
  • NEUROCAP® nerve capping device for the surgical management of symptomatic neuroma

In the field of Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) surgery, we successfully developed, commercialized and sold a portfolio of sinunasal dressings, including NASOPORE, HEMOPORE, OTOPORE and SINUPORE to Stryker.

Products in development include a:

  • Dura sealant patch indicated for intradural brain surgery, to prevent leakage of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF leaks)
  • Liver sealant patch indicated to prevent post-operative complications
