Proof-Of-Concept Project for safer cancer operations

For patients with cancer of the gastrointestinal tract, tumours are most commonly removed surgically, and the ends of the intestines are reconnected. Currently, up to 10 per cent of these patients endure serious complications caused by leaks from this surgical join. Scientists from St. Olavs Hospital have developed a safer solution in the form of a surgical stapler called Koppler. The objective is to land a licensing agreement with the help of the Research Council’s Proof-Of-Concept Project.
