NEW SOLUTIONS FOR PPH AND VAGINAL REPAIR FROM GLENVEIGH MEDICAL
Glenveigh Medical recently announced that two new products have received FDA clearance: the ebb complete tamponade system and the jetty vaginal repair Balloon.
- The ebb complete tamponade system is indicated for temporary treatment of postpartum hemorrhage (PPH), the leading cause of maternal mortality worldwide. The ebb, a rapid-response balloon device, provides complete tamponade, with capacity for total conformation to the uterine cavity. Through direct rapid inflation via an IV bag spike, dual balloons allow quick, secure treatment of both uterine and vaginal bleeding.
- It is estimated that 700,000 episiotomies are performed annually in the US, and other injuries can be caused by instruments during vaginal deliveries. The jetty Vaginal Repair Balloon is indicated for use in episiotomy and vaginal laceration repair to temporarily prevent postpartum fluids from discharging from the vagina. The jetty replaces the use of packing sponges, thus reducing the chance for infection.
