Precision Medical Devices, Inc. (PMD) has just completed the first two implants of its Phase II preclinical/clinical trials series at its new (second) implant testing sight – North Carolina State University’s School of Veterinarian Medicine – of its revolutionary artificial urethral valve/sphincter device designed to treat severe urinary incontinence (UI) under the direction of noted veterinarian researcher, Dr. Christopher Adin.
The implantation of the two canine subjects in a morning session only took approximately two hours from the beginning preparation of the patients to final suture closing.
The actual implant procedure for both subjects took approximately 10 minutes each with the meticulous closing suturing of three layers of skin tissue taking a bit longer than the implant.
We are scheduled to continue this implant program at the NCSU for the foreseeable future.
