ArthroFLEX, per square centimeter

ArthroFLEX® is an acellular matrix. INTENDED USES: Intended for supplemental support and covering for soft tissue repair. CLAIMED FEATURES: MATRACELL, a patented and validated process by LifeNet Health, renders the ArthroFLEX allograft dermis acellular, without compromising biomechanical or biochemical properties. This process allows the matrix to retain its growth factors, native collagen scaffold and elastin, which is required for healing. Elastin and collagen provide unparalleled strength for supplemental support and covering for soft tissue repair. MATRACELL removes donor DNA from the dermal matrix, ensuring a biocompatible scaffold to facilitate repair. An intact acellular matrix of collagen, elastin and growth factors provides a clean scaffold intended for supplemental support and covering for soft tissue repair. OPTIONS: per square centimeter

Product Information

The addition of Skin Substitutes or Cellular or Tissue Based Products (CTPs) to certain wounds may afford a healing advantage over dressings and conservative treatments when these options appear insufficient to affect complete healing, after at least a 30 day period of comprehensive conservative therapy. There are currently a wide variety of bioengineered products available for soft tissue coverage to affect closure. • Human skin allografts are derived from donated human skin (cadavers) • Allogeneic matrices are derived from human tissue (fibroblasts or membrane) • Composite matrices are derived from human keratinocytes, fibroblasts and xenogeneic collagen • Acellular matrices are derived from allogeneic (non-related human donors) or xenogeneic (other species) collagen, membrane, or cellular remnants
