SOMAVAC® Medical Granted US Patent


SOMAVAC® Medical Solutions, Inc. announces the granting of US Patent (11,078,898), covering its SOMAVAC® SVS Smart Suction Technology and surgical drain management platform. The SOMAVAC® SVS is the ONLY smart surgical drain pump cleared by the FDA to prevent seromas in plastic and general surgery. Most commonly used for mastectomies, breast reconstructions, hernia repairs, tummy tucks and complex orthopaedic procedures, the SOMAVAC® SVS applies continuous suction to surgical drains for effective removal of fluids and may reduce the risk of seromas or hematomas. Seromas/hematomas can lead to complications like infection, delayed wound healing and revision surgery.
