Based in Fort Worth, Texas, Sanara MedTech Inc. (“Sanara,” the “Company”) (NASDAQ: SMTI), a provider of products and technologies for surgical and chronic wound care dedicated to improving patient outcomes, announced the commercial launch of two new innovative products from Cook Biotech Inc.

FORTIFY TRGTM Tissue Repair Graft is a small intestinal submucosa (“SIS”) extracellular matrix (“ECM”) sheet. The graft is used for implantation to reinforce soft tissue, has a thin profile, is available in multiple sizes, and can be cut to size to accommodate the patient’s anatomy. FORTIFY TRG Tissue Repair Graft may be hydrated with either sterile saline or autologous body fluids, such as blood, bone marrow aspirate, or blood concentrates such as platelet concentrate. It is a FDA 510(k) cleared product and terminally sterilized.
FORTIFY FLOWABLETM Extracellular Matrix is an advanced wound care device that presents the SIS ECM technology in a way that can fill irregular wound shapes and depths. FORTIFY FLOWABLE Extracellular Matrix is indicated for the management of wounds including: partial and full-thickness wounds, pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, diabetic ulcers, chronic vascular ulcers, tunneled/undermined wounds, surgical wounds (donor sites/grafts, post-Mohs surgery, post-laser surgery, podiatric, wound dehiscence), trauma wounds (abrasions, lacerations, second-degree burns, and skin tears) and draining wounds. FORTIFY FLOWABLE Extracellular Matrix is provided sterile and is intended for one-time use. It is a 510(k) cleared product.
The addition of these two innovative products allows Sanara to build upon our comprehensive portfolio of surgical and wound care products and is not intended to replace any of our existing CellerateRX® Surgical products. When used, both products are considered a supply as part of the surgical event.
