Exero Medical develops a biodegradable wireless sensor for early detection of anastomotic leaks following GI Surgery. Its system is designed to prevent complications by warning physicians of a potential leak, enabling early intervention.
Early Detection Saves Lives
Anastomotic leak is a common, life threatening complication of GI surgeries (such as colorectal and bariatric). Early detection before clinical manifestation of anastomotic leak is key to a favorable outcome, but diagnosis at this stage is difficult.
Diagnosis time lag impacts mortality rates and economic burden. Exero Medical’s system deploys a sensor that continuously monitors the condition of the anastomosis area and enables preventive actions before the patient’s condition deteriorates.
Exero’s system intended benefits are:
Better patient recovery
Prevention of serious complications in case of a postoperative leak
Generation of new real time data on patient recovery
Exero’s system targets an addressable market of over 6 million procedures annually (US only) with over 2 Billion dollars of potential revenues
