Company Summary

Suture Ease develops and markets laparoscopic devices for closure of port site punctures. Large size punctures require closure at the interior abdominal wall (fascia). An improper or non-existent closure can lead to a herniation of the bowel. The SecurusDL system is an innovative, disposable device that combines elegant design with optimal functionality to enhance the ease, safety, and reliability for closure of cannula port puncture wounds.
