NERv is developing a sensory platform designed to detect gastrointestinal leaks that can arise after surgical procedures. Our first product will focus on detecting anastomotic leakage, or the leakage of content from within the gastrointestinal tract into the abdominal cavity after surgery. Anastomotic leaks often result in a cascade of complications that can lead to mortality and adverse outcomes for the survivors. It affects more than 100,000 patients who go through surgery every year in the United States. NERv’s patent-pending solution is a sensory platform capable of detecting leaks within minutes of incidence.
