Suturion secures 24 million for the upcoming launch


The Lund based medtech company Suturion has developed a medical instrument designed to reduce complications and enhance patient safety following open abdominal surgery. The company is now preparing for an international launch by securing SEK 24 million in a recently concluded investment round. Suturion is a SmiLe Incubator company.

Suturion aims to address a global healthcare challenge: one in three patients undergoing open abdominal surgery suffer painful complications, often requiring additional surgery. Approximately 30 million open abdominal surgeries are performed globally each year. The innovative tool, Suture-TOOL, resembling an advanced sewing machine, is designed to close the abdomen with higher quality – thereby increasing patient safety.
