1st in Man trial for Dallen Medical's Compressyn band device

Early-stage device company Dallen Medical announced a 1st-in-man study of its Compressyn band, a breast-plate wire closure device designed to help stabilize patients after open heart surgery.

After the sternum is cracked during open-heart surgery, patients require specialized wires to hold the cavity together. The Compressyn band aims to provide "significant improvements in rigid fixation-with-compression solutions over current devices," according to a Dallen statement.
