Chris Richardson, CEO of SafeHeal, will be presenting an overview of the benefits of Colovac to strategic partners, investors & innovators in the medtech industry at the LSI Emerging Medtech Summit 2023. This important industry event will take place March 20-23, 2023 in Dana Point, CA.
SafeHeal SAS, headquartered in Paris, France, and its wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary, SafeHeal Inc., is a clinical-stage medical device company which develops Colovac, a device invented by a French digestive surgeon, Dr. Charam Khosrovani, to obviate the need for a digestive ostomy in patients undergoing colorectal surgery. Colovac is a flexible bypass sheath intended to reduce the contact of fecal content at the anastomotic site following colorectal surgery. The device is placed endoluminally and is fully reversible. The device remains in place for 10 days, until the body’s natural healing and tissue repair processes are complete, after which it is removed during an endoscopic procedure without the need for a second surgical intervention. This enables patients to resume their normal life without the stigma and complications associated with an ostomy procedure. Colovac is an investigational device, not currently available for sale.
