HELIOS CARDIO ANNOUNCES US FDA 510(k) CLEARANCE FOR A NEW PERICARDIAL AND EPICARDIAL RECONSTRUCTION MATRIX

Indicated for both pericardial repair and reconstruction, and epicardial support and repair, CardiaMend™ Pericardial and Epicardial Reconstruction Matrix is supplied in a variety of sizes and two thickness specifications providing surgeons with the widest flexibility for each procedure, technique, and patient.

“We are looking forward to providing cardiac surgeons with the strongest and most regenerative biologic implant available to date.” said Yiannis Monovoukas, PhD, CEO of Helios Cardio. “Our intention, however, is not to stop there, but to further extend the functionality of CardiaMend™ towards true cardiac tissue regeneration, and to achieve our ultimate goal of mending broken hearts.”

About Engineered Biologic Matrix

Engineered Biologic Matrix (EBM) has been employed in many surgical indications since 2003. As an implantable medical device in critical applications such as dura mater repair, hernia repair, and plastic and reconstructive surgery, EBM has a rich heritage of exceptional clinical safety and performance.

An exceptionally pure collagen scaffold, EBM is free of non-collagen proteins, lipids, growth factors, or other inflammatory cellular remnants. It is the only biologic matrix containing abundant levels of collagen Type III, which is involved in “scarless healing” observed in fetal and neonatal mammals. When implanted, EBM provides signals to a variety of cell surface receptors stimulating tissue regeneration and attenuating fibrosis.
