Resorbable membrane, natural pericardium.
HEART PERICARDIUM MEMBRANE
Indicatii de utilizare
The protection time for this kind of membrane is 3-4 months. Such a long protection time is due to the fact that the treatment the pericardium undergoes to achieve these membranes does not alter the tridimensional structure, and the bonds among the collagen and elastin fibers the pericardium is made of. Thus, the time needed for degradation is longer. This membrane is, therefore, structured and features a peculiar mechanical resistance to tearing. It can be sutured without tearing. This membrane needs not fixation; its adhesiviness is only slightly smaller than the one of the classic collagen membranes. It?s the best choice for most bone regeneration surgeries.
To protect most medium to large-sized bone grafts, and in particular: a) To protect grafted peri-implant defects showing more than 3 exposed threads b) To protect every kind of grafted periodontal site c) To protect grafted post-extractive sites even when one or more walls are missing d) To cover GBR granular grafts e) To cover horizontal and/or vertical onlay grafts performed with sheets or blocks f) To protect inlay grafts
