DermaMatrix™ Acellular Dermis from Synthes is an allograft derived from donated human skin that can be used for the replacement, repair, or reinforcement of soft tissue in grafting procedures such as root coverage and soft tissue ridge augmentation. It is designed to eliminate the need for a secondary surgical procedure, such as a palatal harvest.
DermaMatrix features excellent handling characteristics and rehydrates quickly with no rinsing. It is bacterially inactivated and meets US Pharmacopeia Standard 71 sterility tests. DermaMatrix has a three-year shelf life and does not require refrigeration.
