RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, North Carolina--RIEMSER, a supplier of bone regeneration products, has announced the launch of CollaGuide.
CollaGuide is a new collagen membrane designed for ease of handling, based on its resiliency, and ease of placement, based on its translucency and adherence to surrounding tissue.
CollaGuide is approved for Guided Tissue Regeneration and Guided Bone Regeneration indications.
Derived to help ensure high purity, CollaGuide membrane--developed and
manufactured by Kensey Nash Corporation--contains no chemical cross-linking. Unlike many other collagen membranes, CollaGuide is translucent and nonfriable with a morphology of dense fibers that give it mechanical strength.
In addition, its fibrous structure creates porosity that retards epithelial down growth and prevents gingival connective cell migration into the wound site.
CollaGuide is available in three sizes: 15 mm x 20 mm, 20 mm x 30 mm, and 30 mm x 40 mm.
"Because of interest from dental practitioners, we wanted to add an easy-to-use collagen membrane to our product line for the busy implant office," explained Rick Patton, RIEMSER vice-president.
"Based on its combination of transparency, pliability, and dual-sided application (i.e., the doctor can place it either side up), CollaGuide will simplify procedures, particularly since it can be sutured into place using absorbable sutures or affixed with resorbable tacks."
