Strattice™ Reconstructive Tissue Matrix is a sterile reconstructive tissue matrix that supports tissue regeneration. Derived from porcine dermis, it undergoes LifeCell’s non-damaging proprietary processing that removes cells and significantly reduces the key component believed to play a major role in the xenogeneic rejection response1.
Challenging abdominal wall repair
- Provides for strong repair2 - Strattice Tissue Matrix offers excellent biomechanical strength.
- Minimises adhesions to implant3- Strattice Tissue Matrix minimises hernia repair complications and allows for simpler surgeries in the abdominal area in the future
Breast reconstruction postmastectomy
- Optimises aesthetic results - Strattice Tissue Matrix provides additional tissue for implant coverage in cases of aggressive resection; helps control implant location; helps define the inframammary and lateral mammary folds; may help hide implant visibility; and creates a more natural-looking breast.
- May minimise the risk of some complications - Strattice Tissue Matrix may help mask breast implant palpability; helps prevent bottoming out or extrusion of implant; may help to prevent skin flap thinning and pectoralis major muscle retraction; and eliminates the need to elevate the serratus muscle.
- Controls breast implant location - Strattice Tissue Matrix acts as an "internal bra" to support the implant and helps the surgeon to control the pocket size.
- Supports fold malposition repairs - Strattice Tissue Matrix may be used to redefine and support a new fold inferiorly or laterally.
- Masks appearance of implant wrinkles or ripples - Strattice Tissue Matrix can support the implant, control the pocket size and minimise visible wrinkles, ripples and irregular contours.
