5 © Healionics Corporation 2007 The edges of the epidermis heal by migrating inward to form a groove. The skin integrates into STARcuff’s pores. STAR forms a seal for a long-term barrier against infection. Current antimicrobial cuffs provide only temporary protection. Title Page This groove provides a pathway for bacteria, leading to infection. Catheters have poor sealing with the skin.

7 Injectable STAR pellets have the potential to accelerate wound healing and reduce scarring. Title Page Angiogenesis in STAR pores triggers growth of larger vessels between pellets, supporting faster and more complete healing.
