Aatru Medical Gets 510(k) Clearance for Surgery Management System

August 27, 2021

The FDA has granted Aatru Medical 510(k) clearance for its negative pressure surgical incision management system, abbreviated as NPSIMS.

Cleveland, Ohio-based Aatru says the NPSIMS does not need the expensive electro-mechanical pump, battery, and electronics found in most other negative pressure wound therapy systems for closed surgical incision applications.

The single-use device, which includes a preassembled dressing, significantly reduces the rate of wound infection compared with standard postoperative dressings, the company says.
