WYOMISSING, Pa., Oct. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Adhezion Biomedical, LLC is pleased to announce the 510(k) clearance of SecurePortIV™ catheter securement

adhesive, a highly versatile cyanoacrylate formulation which can be used with short-term or long-term vascular access devices to enhance device securement, seal the catheter insertion site, protect the patient from catheter related blood stream infection,
and provide a water-resistant barrier – all in a single product.

SecurePortIV™ comes in a patented ergonomic applicator containing a proprietary cyanoacrylate formulation tailored specifically for use with vascular access devices. SecurePortIV™ is applied to the skin under the hub of vascular access devices and forms a film that holds the catheter to the skin to reduce catheter movement, migration, and/or dislodgment. SecurePortIV™ is also applied over the catheter-skin insertion site forming a seal proven to immobilize surface bacteria and fungi, preventing them from entering into the catheter skin entry site while also providing a moisture-proof barrier. Additionally, SecurePortIV™ effectively seals the catheter insertion site which can help reduce the frequency of dressing changes. 

Pete Molinaro, Adhezion's CEO and Chairman said, "SecurePortIV™ is the only cyanoacrylate adhesive in the world that has been cleared by the FDA for use with vascular access devices. SecurePortIV™ has tremendous potential to greatly simplify the care and maintenance of vascular access devices while providing extraordinary value to healthcare facilities which can normally be achieved only through the combination of multiple different securement and catheter site management products."
