4
Is the wound highly exuding?
5
Is the cavity deeper than 5mm?
e.g. legs, trunk, upper arm
e.g. face, hands, feet, forearm, scalp
6
Large area of exposed bones/tendons

Mode of Action

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.
