Sutureless Nerve Connector
Rapid and reliable repair of peripheral nerves
Nerve Tape™ is a biologic wrap with integrated microhooks for suture-free coaptation of peripheral nerves. Integrated columns of microhooks bind firmly, safely, and reversibly to outer connective tissues, while the bioresorbable wrap forms a pro-regenerative environment. Nerve Tape is quickly and easily applied for consistent, high-quality repairs.
Nerve Tape quickly wraps, aligns, and affixes nerve ends - safely and reliably.
Safe and reliable coaptation of nerve ends
Microscale hooks engage outer connective tissues safely and with controlled depth vs. manually placed sutures
Summed microhook attachments form a strong hold with distributed tension
Consistent, simple, quick repairs
Microhooks float in a flexible biologic backing material for excellent handling properties and easy wrapping of nerve ends
Elimination of microsutures reduces surgical time and complexity and enables consistent, high-quality repairs across surgeon backgrounds
Optimized nerve regeneration
Reliably precise alignment of nerve ends optimizes axonal regeneration
Superficial, distributed attachments spread out tension away from the injury site vs. focally placed nylon sutures
The extracellular matrix (ECM) wrapping material protects the repair site, supporting natural healing processes before remodeling over time into native tissue.
