Revolutionary light-weight design significantly minimizes implanted foreign body material2

Reloadable cartridge-based system may reduce cost3 and supports a variety of clinical needs4

Low profile, minimal surface area exposed to viscera5

Lightweight & Locking

More implanted material increases foreign body reaction, which may increase pain.6,7
As hernia meshes become lighter, the implanted foreign body mass associated with the fixation means becomes greater.
Tacks may contribute more than half the total implanted foreign body material.2

Up to a 30% reduction in overall implanted foreign body material

Reloadable, Cartridge-Based System

FasTouch presents a reloadable, cartridge-based system that delivers up to 25 tacks per cartridge. Instead of opening a new device, dramatically increasing the cost of the procedure, the FasTouch system reloadable cartridge platform enables surgeons to open just a new cartridge.
Via Surgical plans to provide surgeons with a variety of cartridge offerings to meet a various clinical applications and surgeon preferences and potentially reduce OR costs8  when more than 25 tacks are needed in a single procedure.

Company Profile

Via Surgical Ltd. provides next-generation fixation for hernia repair. Realizing that many hernia repairs make use of multiple means for mesh fixation — anchor/helical hernia tacks, manually applied transfascial sutures — Via Surgical has developed its FasTouch™ system to provide deployable transfascial suture fixation that is strong and consistent, yet easily and rapidly deployed.

FasTouch, with its lightweight deployable sutures, provides a comprehensive fixation solution for hernia repair. The fixation strength of the sutures stems from the closed locked-loop suture concept. The minimal amount of material in the sutures may reduce foreign body response and chronic pain.

Via Surgical was founded in 2012 by Lena and Ofek Levin and Arik Levy, an experienced team that is dedicated to improving and enhancing hernia repair. This same team previously founded and led PolyTouch Medical, developers of an advanced mesh-positioning device for greater accuracy and shorter procedure time.
