Durastat awarded breakthrough technology agreement with Premier 

March 10, 2023 – DuraStat LLC, a medical device company innovating in the area of surgical tissue closure, has been awarded a Breakthrough Technology group purchasing agreement with Premier, Inc. Effective March 15th the new agreement allows Premier members, at their discretion, to take advantage of special pricing and terms pre-negotiated by Premier for DuraStat. 

“We greatly appreciate Premier’s focus on expediting and broadening access to Breakthrough Technologies. As a transformative solution, both for patient outcomes and provider economics, DuraStat is a natural fit for the Breakthrough Technology program, and we are honored by the recognition. We believe DuraStat will ultimately be available at every spine care facility as the gold standard for dural repair – the new agreement with Premier will help shorten the timeframe to realize this inevitability,” said Adam Azzara, DuraStat CEO. 

DuraStat is a dural repair technology used to help prevent persistent cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks following incidental durotomies (dural tears), one of the most common complications of spine surgery. Also a procedure-enabling technology, surgeons utilize DuraStat in cases where planned openings of the dura are required, such as for intradural tumor resection, tethered cord and transsphenoidal approaches. The technology eliminates the wrist rotation associated with suturing to enhance closure precision, reduce tissue trauma, and save time. DuraStat is currently utilized at spine and neurosurgical treatment facilities across 48 U.S. States and the District of Columbia.
