When it comes to post-op care, drains are a major pain, in more way than one. Cohera Medical, Inc. is working on the solution with its TissuGlu surgical adhesive. Presently, most patients who undergo tummy tucks and other large flap procedures require drains to remove fluids that accumulate under the skin. The drains are often painful for the patient and can lead to infection and impact the recovery process. TissuGlu adheres the tissue flap created during the procedure to the underlying tissue, helping to reduce fluid accumulation and ultimately reduce the need for postoperative drain.
