Straumann® Membrane Flex
Minimally crosslinked porcine peritoneum collagen membrane
Made from highly purified intact porcine peritoneum, Membrane Flex is a reliable and strong collagen membrane for everyday cases. It offers exceptional flexibility and biomechanical strength, and resorbs predictably. What's more, it naturally conforms to defects and contours. Once in place, it can be firmly anchored to surrounding tissue, with minimal risk of tearing or detachment.*
Features and benefits
Desirable handling characteristic
Not side specific.
Can be placed dry or hydrated.
Even when hydrated, does not adhere to gloves or instruments.
Can be easily repositioned for precise placement.
Takes sutures or tacks with ease, for simple yet secure placement.
High tensile strength
Proven biomechanical strength enhances fixation assurance.*
Predictable and controlled resorption
Protects the graft area from unwanted soft tissue infiltration during the initial phase of healing.
Resorbs predictably over 3 to 4 months as new host collagen is simultaneously regenerated.*
Minimally crosslinked porcine peritoneum
The intact tissue of porcine peritoneum provides inherent strength which is further minimally crosslinked, leading to predictable resorption and desirable handling characteristics.
