The prospect of neurosurgical device products is broad, and the subdivision of medical devices is worthy of attention

A brain surgery is time-consuming and difficult to operate. For surgeons, they need to face double tests from both energy and body. But in a few years, such an operation may be much easier. Ma Jie, general manager of Bancheng Medical Technology Co., Ltd., said that a neurosurgery device developed by the company will simplify surgery.

Brain surgery does not require 5*5 cm trauma

"What we have developed is a neurosurgery minimally invasive medical device, which is mainly used in brain surgery." Ma Jie said that this product will completely change the entire surgical process. According to reports, the original brain surgery required a craniotomy, with a wound as long as 5*5 cm. Not only was the wound large, but it also had an impact on the patient's recovery cycle and postoperative complications. Now, with minimally invasive instruments, only a small wound about one centimeter in diameter needs to be drilled.

Ma Jie said that this device is actually an endoscope for brain surgery. In addition to the endoscope part, including the scalpel, it is matched with the equipment and can perform minimally invasive surgical procedures. "Its principle is like laparoscopic surgery, it just moves this set to a more refined brain for surgery."

With this set of self-developed innovative instruments, the company has the technology to change the existing surgical methods. "This set of equipment is our own technical patent and the core competitiveness of the company." He said that a craniotomy would take 6 hours, which is a big test for doctors and nurses. After the product is released, the same operation can be completed in just over an hour. After the process of craniotomy and craniotomy is omitted, the operation is simplified.

Interestingly, the idea behind the development of this device is a neurosurgeon and one of the founders of the company. He is a neurosurgeon in a tertiary hospital. Years of clinical experience gave him the idea to change the disadvantages of existing surgical methods: "Why can't brain surgery be simplified and less invasive?" With this idea in mind, in 2016, he teamed up with other The two founders of the company jointly established the company, pooled their brains and efforts, and finally put their ideas into practice.

Ma Jie said that the current R&D team of Bancheng comes from the original Shanghai minimally invasive medical team, and has unique insights and professional skills in the field of minimally invasive medical devices.

Products may be launched in 2021

The endoscope enters the surgical site and completes the surgery with minimal trauma. It is reported that this minimally invasive medical device has completed the preliminary animal experiments.

Matier shows that brain surgery is now very common. For example, the volume of cerebral hemorrhage surgery is as high as 1.5 million per year, and cerebral hemorrhage caused by high blood pressure and trauma is the disease with the largest number of neurosurgery operations. If endoscopic technology is used, some problems encountered in surgery can be easily solved. "For example, in cerebral hemorrhage surgery, after the use of neuroflexoscope and supporting equipment, hematoma can be removed as quickly as possible, and the operation efficiency can be greatly improved."

Under the guidance of advanced concepts, in 2016, Bancheng Medical began commercial operation, formed the first test model, and went all the way to today, completed all the preliminary research and development work, and entered the testing and testing stage. As we all know, the initial investment in medical equipment is very high. At the beginning of its establishment, Bancheng Medical raised several million yuan through angel rounds and is about to conduct a second round of financing. But these are far from enough. Ma Jie said that the current cost is only for the research and development, and a lot of investment will be needed later. From testing to clinical practice to production, a set of procedures requires an investment of about 30 million to 50 million yuan.

"There are similar products in foreign countries, but they have not entered the domestic market. After our products are launched, the price will be more competitive." As the first company in China to produce neuroscopic soft mirrors, Ma Jie estimates that their neurological soft mirror products It will be launched in 2021, and domestic hospitals will be able to use this technology to perform related operations by then.

Entrepreneurship is to persist in ambition

An advanced equipment overturns the traditional form of an industry. This kind of innovation filled Ma Jie with a sense of achievement. Speaking of entrepreneurship, strictly speaking, this is his third entrepreneurship. Once, he served as an executive in a medical company, but later he chose another path. "There are many reasons for starting a business. I have been developing markets for foreign products in my career for more than ten years, but domestic high-end medical devices lack self-developed products. After reaching a certain level, I have the desire to do so. The idea of doing something, try to make some innovations, and make a product that can have core technology. This may be the biggest motivation to start a business.”

Although Ma Jie left the company where he worked, he was still looking for opportunities in the medical industry, and he worked for three years. He himself did not expect that he could persevere until today, perhaps this is the power of ambition. "I used to do medical equipment, equipment, and medicine... In the early stage, I mainly did market work for foreign products, and I dealt more with hospitals. Now my work is tantamount to returning to the origin of the product."

The "origin" in his mouth is research and development. It was a clinical idea of a surgeon, which burst out the creativity and enthusiasm of entrepreneurship. "The senior executives from Shanghai MicroPort Medical, the surgeon and I, after experiencing a collision of ideas, all felt that this market is huge, and there is no product in China that touches this area, so we decided to try this at that time. We formed A triangular team of management, doctors and technology.” This is also the pattern of medical entrepreneurship in Israel.

Now, with self-developed products, Bancheng Medical has achieved stronger competitiveness, covering every link of the entire product together. They are no longer just simple product sellers, but have become Party A with the right to speak. Not only that, but the launch of neuroscopic soft mirror products also benefits patients, showing the universal value of doctors and medical companies.
