Mastering esthetics.
Porcine 3D collagen graft.

mucoderm® provides a true alternative in certain indications to the patient’s own connective tissue. This stable 3-dimensional collagen soft tissue replacement, made of porcine dermis, supports fast revascularization and soft tissue integration, including color and texture.

Features and benefits

  • Safety and biocompatibility

    The particular, certified multi-stage cleaning process of mucoderm® effectively removes all non-collagenous proteins and cells as well as potential immunogens, bacteria and viruses. Hence, mucoderm® is an absolutely safe and pure collagen type I and III matrix. mucoderm® is biocompatible and supports adhesion and proliferation of fibroblasts and endothelial cells.

  • 3-dimensional matrix

    The unique, porous structure makes mucoderm® an ideal scaffold for ingrowth of blood vessels and cells and promotes fast tissue integration and revascularization.²,³

  • High tensile strength

    Due to the structural stability, mucoderm® can be:
    – sutured, pinned or screwed
    – easily cut to the required size and shape
    – easily applied by the tunnel technique without risk of tearing the matrix apart. 

  • Structure similar to human tissue

    mucoderm® is a viable alternative to the patient’s own tissue in certain indications:
    – Remodels completely into patient’s own tissue within 6 – 9 months.
    – Reduces the patients’ discomfort and donor site morbidity.
