The BioZorb marker is an implantable surgical device comprised of a bioabsorbable framework that holds marker clips in a 3 dimensional array. It is frequently used to demarcate the site of a tumor removed during breast cancer therapy. Currently, normal tissue can often be exposed to unnecessary levels of radiation due to ambiguity of the tumor excision site location. The BioZorb implant delineates the tumor excision site in 3 dimensions and provides support during healing. These unique features have enabled reduced dose to normal tissues, shorter courses of radiation treatment, and the preservation of breast contours during breast conservation therapy.
