COLO GIDE STERILE COLLAGEN SHEET GTR MEMBRANE 10X15 mm
The Colo Gide is derived from bovine source. It is a resorbable, non-friable barrier membrane obtained from highly purified type-I collagen derived from specially controlled and certified animals and is highly purified to avoid any antigenicity.
In all cases standard established sterile surgical procedures must be observed. A full thickness mucoperiosteal flap must be raised to expose the underlying bone defect. The flap should be minimum of 5mm outside the defect on all sides. The defect must be debrided thoroughly of all granulation tissue. After adequate site preparation the bone defect can be filled with a graft material. The sizes of the membrane should be determined using a template material adapting the membrane and cutting it with scissors to ideally extend 2-3 mm beyond the edge of the defect (s). the membrane once wet with blood tends to adapt extremely well to the bone walls. The roughened porous texture should face the bone and the dense smooth surface face the soft tissue. The membrane should be properly immobilized as micro movement can impair the bone ingrowth. Immobilization can be done using suturing or a fixation system. The wound should be primarily closed over without any lesion in the flap.
The ColoGide is produced to provide an optimized degree of flexibility and rigidity combined with the most predictable resorptive process.
The Product comprises two distinct surface textures on either side of the membrane-a dense surface and a roughened porous surface. The dense top layer is in contact with soft tissue to prevent epithelial down growth and the porous roughened surface is in contact with bone and favors bone in growth.
The ColoGide has a definite geometry in vivo stability and mechanical sterngth for use as barrier material. It has longest in vivo stability or resorption time 20-24 weeks, this accounts for the sustained function during the bone repair process. The colo Gide comes prepacked and sterile and is intended for single use only.
