Medtrade partners with KEBOMED Europe AG to help control postpartum haemorrhage
Medtrade Products Ltd is delighted to announce that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with KEBOMED Europe AG – a leading European supplier of medical equipment – to distribute the revolutionary CELOX™ PPH Uterine Haemostatic Tamponade across France and the UK. CELOX™ PPH offers a unique, CE-certified solution for uterine postpartum haemorrhage (PPH), and KEBOMED’s network of customers in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology (OBGYN) will help more clinicians to access this vital solution to help manage postpartum bleeding.
PPH is a widespread and critical complication of childbirth, affecting approximately 14 million women each year and leading to nearly one quarter of all maternal deaths. This could be avoided by implementing cost-effective and resource-appropriate interventions, but existing treatment options are limited. CELOX™ PPH was designed to address this by rapidly and effectively managing postnatal blood loss in any setting, without the need for power, suction, saline or specific storage conditions. The tamponade demonstrates 100 % haemostasis for grade 1 and 2 bleeding (up to 2,500 ml) in all deliveries, and 95.6 % haemostasis for up to grade 3 bleeding (8,000 ml) in vaginal deliveries, while also reducing hysterectomy rates by 78 % compared to the current treatment options.
Søren Kornerup, principal shareholder of KEBOMED Europe AG, commented:
“KEBOMED distributes innovative medical devices and equipment for customers throughout the healthcare system, including the OBGYN sector. We recognise the prevalence and severity of PPH, and are proud to enter into this agreement with Medtrade to help offer a high quality solution with the potential to progress the field of obstetrics.”
Russ Mably, the Chief Executive Officer at Medtrade Products Ltd, added:
“This distribution agreement aligns with Medtrade’s ambition to make CELOX™ PPH tamponades an essential presence at every delivery across the world. We look forward to working with KEBOMED to improve obstetric outcomes in Europe, reducing the risk that childbirth poses to mothers and helping to improve their quality of life.”
KEBOMED Europe AG is a leading independent European distributor of medical devices and equipment for the healthcare system with vast clinical experience and a deep knowledge of the local markets. Behind KEBOMED lie exciting stories from companies all over Europe that go back more than 75 years. The company we know today was created in 1995 with local presence in Denmark, Sweden and Finland.

During the past few years, we have expanded our European presence considerably to include France, Switzerland, Germany and Austria. So today KEBOMED is truly European.
