The BioSentry™ tract sealant system is the first biopsy sealant system of its kind and represents a major advance in the prevention of lung biopsy-related pneumothorax.
The BioSentry™ system deploys a self-expanding hydrogel plug into the pleural space following biopsy. The plug expands, creating an airtight seal that closes the pleural puncture, reducing the risk of pneumothorax by more than 50%.1
