Project Title: Dural Clip Commercialization
Prinicipal Investigator: Justin Cetas, MD, Ph.D., Oregon Health & Science University
Company Principal: Rachel Dreilinger, NeuraMedica, LLC
Project Description: Utilizing ONAMI Gap funding, as well as market research support, with technology initially developed at the Oregon Health & Science University, Neuramedica seeks to commercialize a proprietary Dural Clip & Applicator surgical device. The device is a bioabsorbable clip and applicator system for use in neurosurgery to close incisions of the Dura Mater (durotomy). This Dural Clip & Applicator device may be used by neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons in the closure of spinal dural openings saving the hospital significant costs by reducing operative time. This system will make closure of the dura much quicker as the application of several Clips in a row will take seconds to apply.
