Description

Description

Neomem® ECM | Processed porcine mesothelial tissue in sheet form

Neomem® ECM is an extracellular matrix in sheet form with a combination of strength and tissue regeneration properties with minimal antigens. Because Neomem® ECM is more than just collagen, the extra proteins support soft tissue healing and remodeling into natural tissue as the matrix is absorbed.

The Extracellular Matrix (ECM) is a three-dimensional network of extracellular macromolecules, such as collagen, enzymes, and glycoproteins.¹ ECM has been found to support regrowth and healing of tissue.²


Neomem ECM maintains it’s desirable structural characteristics for cellular proliferation, ideal for the following applications:

  • Guided tissue regeneration procedures in periodontal defects
  • Augmentation around implants
  • Provides architecture and protection for bone regeneration and soft tissue aesthetics
  • Alveolar ridge reconstruction for prosthetic treatment

Features

Features

Biologic characteristics

Cytokines retained in preparation include:

  • Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), fibroblast growth factor (FGF)and transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta)
  • Levels of VEGF and TGF-beta in Neomem ECM shown to be higher than those found in decellularized small intestinal submucosa (SIS)*

 

Natural structure preserved

Techniques used for processing and sterilization of the ECM maintains its desirable structural characteristics for cellular proliferation throughout the membrane.

 

Excellent handling characteristics

  • Drapes easily to surgical site without adhering to itself
  • Sheet form ECM have natural elasticity charateristics

 

3 year shelf life from date of sterilization

Resorption time: 6 months
