Mode of Action Watch video

In a One- or Multi-Step Procedure, MatriDerm ® Dermal Matrix is placed on the wound bed and covered with a secondary dressing of choice (e.g. split-thickness skin graft).

MatriDerm® Dermal Matrix provides a native three-dimensional collagen elastin matrix to facilitate cell migration and guided healing.

Fibroblasts are guided by the native collagen elastin scaffold ensuring structured healing and formation of a neo-dermis.

Enhanced neo-angiogenesis and formation of microvessels ensuring supply and optimal split-thickness skin graft take.
