Lydus Medical Announces $2.7M Seed Round Funding

Lydus Medical, a portfolio company of Sanara Ventures – a JV of Teva and Philips and an anastomosis technology provider, today announced $2.7 million in a Pre-A funding, led by a leading US-based strategic player with the participation of Sanara Ventures and existing shareholders.

The funding will support the company’s ability to accelerate FDA clearance while scaling product development and prepare for market entry.

Lydus takes an innovative approach to surgical anastomosis, the connection of ultra-small blood and lymph vessels to one another. “Anastomosis is one of the most complicated steps of surgery, and the key to success of many procedures, and it is still performed manually, making it time and labor intense, requiring high surgeon dexterity and a very unique skill set very few surgeons worldwide possess. This reality often results in poor clinical outcomes,” said Jessica Weiss, company’s CEO. “Lydus technology delivers standardized, accurate anastomosis, significantly improving clinical results, shortening operation time and enabling successful microsurgery procedures even when a rare, highly skilled microsurgeon isn’t available.”

Lydus developed, the Vesseal, a unique surgical device that enables precise, symmetrical and rapid connection of blood and lymph vessels of tiny diameters, ranging from 4.0 to 0.5mm, for complicated procedures, from breast reconstruction and lymphedema to bypass surgery and vascular access for hemodialysis. Lydus pipeline includes a diverse portfolio of products, all based on a patented invention.

“Lydus Medical, brings great innovation to the complex unmet need of surgical suturing, which includes more than 7 million surgeries a year across a variety of indications, reflecting a huge number of potential users of Lydus device,” said Assaf Barnea, Sanara Ventures, CEO and the Chairman of the company.

The funding round was led by the strategic player, together with additional investors Mor Research, Technion and Leon Recanati’s private equity investment company, Glenrock, has joined this round as well as additional investors.
