THE STYPRO® SPONGES MADE OF PORCINE GELATINE

zfk5mlyznfv37devnfivka-30

Stypro® is a sterile, highly porous sponge that is implantable and resorbable. This biomaterial, which was originally developed for hemostasis and is used for that purpose in a wide range of surgical fields, is further characterized by outstanding workability. More recent applications have demonstrated advantages also in tissue engineering and thus in wound healing of soft-tissue defects.

The stypro® sponges made of porcine gelatine have the capability to initialize hemostasis (clotting).

  • Interconnecting porosity with no thrombin or other additives
  • Use with physiological saline solution with no impairment of hemostatic properties
  • Complete resorption within approximately 3 weeks
  • No evidence of PERV (porcine endogenous retrovirus)– DNA sequences

Indications

  • Hemostasis and alveolus filling after tooth extraction
  • Filling of soft–tissue defects in all surgical procedures
  • Oral and maxillofacial surgery (e.g., cheilognathouranoschisis surgery)
  • Various orosurgical procedures (e.g., sinus lift)
