Signum Surgical has secured De Novo clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its BioHealx technology for anal fistula treatment.

BioHealx is a single-use, bioabsorbable implant. It is designed for a minimally invasive procedure to treat anal fistula, a significant development in colorectal disease management.

The device has been developed in partnership with colorectal surgeons and aims to close the internal opening of the fistula tract, prevent recurrence, promote healing, and protect patient continence.

The FDA’s De Novo classification and clearance follow a comprehensive clinical trial completed last year.

Conducted across multiple centres in Hungary, the trial involved 32 adult patients and aimed to assess the safety and efficacy of BioHealx in a real-world setting, providing a new solution for patients who have suffered from recurrent anal fistula.

Patients involved in the trial had previously experienced at least one failed treatment for recurrent anal fistula. The final follow-up assessments for the patients ranged from 13 to 40 months.
