Exero Medical’s xBar Post-Operative Tissue Healing Monitoring and Analysis System Demonstrates Positive Study Results

Study published in the Journal of Surgical Research



The findings are the basis of a multi-center clinical trial currently ongoing at

Rabin Medical Center, Sheba Medical Center, Shamir Medical Center and Kaplan Medical Center


Or Yehuda, Israel, July 12, 2022 — A pre-clinical study using Exero Medical’s post-operative tissue healing monitoring technology, demonstrated for the first time, an ability to use measurable tissue changes to detect, early on, serious post-op complications such as leaks.

The results were published in the peer reviewed Journal of Surgical Research. Click here to view the full article.

The outcomes of this controlled study are the basis for the current clinical study of xBar that enrolled its first patient in March 2022 at the Beilinson Campus at Rabin Medical Center.  It is also ongoing at Sheba Medical Center, Shamir Medical Center and Kaplan Medical Center.

“The article provides the proof of concept we needed in vitro and in vivo for accurate monitoring of tissue healing using the body’s naturally generated signals,” said Exero Medical CEO Dr. Erez Shor. “We believe that this first of its kind data will enable us to personalize and optimize post-op care, allowing for shorter hospitalizations in patients who recover quickly and life-saving early interventions in patients who develop serious complications.”

“The data collected in this pre-clinical trial showed diagnostic sensitivity for a gastrointestinal leak with potential clinical utility in the postoperative detection of early intra-abdominal sepsis. As further studies are most definitely required and encouraged, we are looking forward to the results of the current clinical study in progress and to hopefully having an impact on many lives in the future,” said Dr. Matan Ben-David, co-founder of Exero Medical.
