BioSentry® Tract Sealant System
PLUG. PREVENT. PROTECT.
BioSentry Tract Sealant System is the first biopsy sealant system of its kind designed specifically to address the issues of biopsy-related pneumothorax. The system deploys a self-expanding hydrogel plug into the pleural space following a percutaneous lung biopsy. This creates an airtight seal that closes the pleural puncture and provides accuracy in marking a biopsy location for visualization during surgical resection.
MD Anderson Cancer Center denotes a 61% reduction in chest tubes1
- 37% reduction of pneumothorax and 61% reduction of chest tube placement
- Although the BioSentry System was more frequently used in high-risk patients in the unmatched group, it still demonstrated reduced risk of pneumothorax
- Use of BioSentry System presents a standardized method for mitigating complications post CT-guided lung biopsy for clinicians
All-comers study demonstrates 80% reduction in chest tube insertion rates when using the BioSentry System2
- The treatment group demonstrated a significant reduction in chest tube placements
- With the BioSentry System, patients experienced an 83% reduction in average time of hospital stay post CT-guided percutaneous transthoracic needle biopsy
