Avive® Soft Tissue Membrane

Avive® Soft Tissue Membrane is a minimally processed human umbilical cord membrane that can be used as a resorbable soft tissue covering to separate tissue layers. Avive® Soft Tissue Membrane is provided sterile and in several sizes to help surgeons meet a variety of surgical needs.

Key Advantages:

  • Smart Processing: Minimally processed to preserve the natural properties of umbilical cord amniotic membrane
  • 8X Thicker: Comprised of umbilical cord amniotic membrane which is up to 8x thicker than amniotic sac alone
  • Long Lasting: In animal studies, Avive® Soft Tissue Membrane stays in place for at least 8 weeks.
  • Ideal Handling: Easy to suture or secure, conforms and stays in place at the application site, chorion free-reducing the likelihood of immune response, and room temperature storage simplifies inventory management

AxoGuard® Nerve Connector

AxoGuard® Nerve Connector is the only porcine submucosa extracellular matrix (“ECM”) coaptation aid for tensionless repair of transected or severed peripheral nerves. While allowing for the close approximation of severed nerves, AxoGuard® Nerve Connector aligns and connects severed nerve ends with less than a 5 mm gap. The AxoGuard® ECM material allows the body’s natural healing process to repair the nerve by isolating and protecting it during the healing process. The patient’s own cells incorporate into the extracellular matrix to remodel and form a tissue similar to the nerve epineurium.

Key Advantages:

  • Preserves the native architecture of the extracellular matrix
  • Reduces the number of required sutures (versus direct repair)
  • Reduces potential for fascicular mismatch
  • Strong and flexible, easy to suture
  • Stored at room temperature with an 18 month shelf life.
  • Alleviates tension at the repair site

AxoGuard® Nerve Protector

AxoGuard® Nerve Protector, is the only  porcine submucosa extracellular (ECM) matrix surgical implant used to  protect injured nerves and to reinforce the nerve reconstruction while preventing soft tissue attachments. Designed to protect and isolate, the AxoGuard® multi-laminar ECM  separates and protects the nerve from the surrounding tissues during the healing process. The patient’s own cells incorporate into the minimally processed extracellular matrix to remodel and form a tissue similar to the nerve epineurium. AxoGuard® Nerve Protector is provided sterile and in a variety of sizes to meet the surgeon’s and anatomical needs.

Key Advantages:

  • Minimizes the potential for soft tissue attachments and nerve entrapment by physically isolating the nerve during the healing process
  • Preserves the native architecture of the extracellular matrix
  • Allows nerve gliding
  • Strong and flexible, plus easy to suture
  • Stored at room temperature with an 18 month shelf life.

AxoGuard® Nerve Graft

Avance® Nerve Graft is an off-the-shelf processed human nerve allograft intended for the surgical repair of peripheral nerve discontinuities. Through a proprietary cleansing process for recovered human peripheral nerve tissue, the graft preserves the essential inherent structure of the ECM while cleansing away cellular and noncellular debris.

Key Advantages:

  • Three dimensional scaffold for bridging a nerve gap
  • Decellularized and cleansed extracellular matrix that remodels into patient’s own tissue
  • No donor nerve surgery, therefore no comorbidities associated with an additional surgical site
  • Available in a variety of lengths and diameters to meet a range of gap lengths and anatomical needs
  • Supplied sterile with three years shelf life (kept frozen at or below -40º C/F)
