Lyoplant® is a pure collagen implant that is produced from lyophilized bovine pericardium. This highly purified collagen is known for its low propensity to cause immunological reactions. After implantation, Lyoplant® slowly degrades enzymatically and is substituted by body’s own connective tissue.
- High liquid-tightness of the implant prevents CSF leakages
- Tissue tolerant
- High tensile strength of the implant prevents suture pull out
- Good suturability
- Adaptable to anatomical structures
Lyoplant® is indicated as a dura substitute for the repair of the dura mater in neurosurgery.
