About NexSite ESMTM
Many types of catheters exit the patient’s body through an open wound in the skin. Effective management of the catheter exit site using antibiotic ointments or antimicrobial dressings has been shown to reduce the risk of catheter related bloodstream infection (CRBSI) associated with these catheters. Marvao Medical’s innovative NexSite™ ESM™ technology is a novel technology for the management of the catheter exit site. It is based on tissue ingrowth and features our patented DISC™ (Dermal Ingrowth Support Collar) that enables the wound in the skin at the catheter exit site to heal. Marvao Medical is working to incorporate NexSite™ ESM™ technology on a broad range of long term implantable medical devices.
