Geistlich Mucograft


Características del produto:

  • No harvest-site morbidity2,3,5-7.
  • Reduced surgical chair-time compared with autogenous grafts2-6.
  • Early vascularisation and good soft-tissue ingrowth10,11.
  • Easy handling2 and application in a dry state.
  • Less pain compared with autogenous grafts2,4.
  • Natural soft-tissue colour and texture match5,8,9.
  • Excellent wound healing, also in open situations2.

Geistlich Mucograft® is a unique 3D collagen matrix designed specifically for soft tissue regeneration1. It is indicated for the gain of keratinized tissue2-4 and for recession coverage5,6.

Geistlich Mucograft® provides an alternative to autogenous soft tissue grafts2,4-6. Harvesting of the patient’s tissue is avoided, providing a benefit to both patients and clinicians.

User benefits:

No harvest-site morbidity2,3,5-7.
Less pain compared with autogenous grafts2,4.
Reduced surgical chair-time compared with autogenous grafts2-6.
Natural soft tissue color and structure match the patients’ own tissues5,8,9.
Early vascularization and good soft tissue ingrowth10,11.
Excellent wound healing, also in open healing situations2.
Geistlich Mucograft® provides easy handling and application in a dry state.
Geistlich Mucograft® consists of two structures: the compact macro-structure provides stability while allowing open healing; the spongy micro-structure supports blood clot stabilization and the ingrowth of soft tissue cells.


FAQ

What is Geistlich Mucograft®?

Geistlich Mucograft® is a unique 3D-collagen matrix designed specifically for soft-tissue regeneration as an alternative for autogenous soft-tissue grafts.

What is Geistlich Mucograft® made of?

Geistlich Mucograft® consists of porcine collagen and is specifically designed for soft-tissue regeneration. The matrix is built up of a compact structure that gives stability while allowing open healing, and a spongy structure that supports blood clot stabilisation and ingrowth of soft-tissue cells.

Is Geistlich Mucograft® resorbable?

The collagen of Geistlich Mucograft® will be replaced by newly formed soft tissue. The matrix is rapidly vascularised and colonised by soft-tissue cells. This leads to a good integration of the matrix without any signs of foreign body reaction1,2.

Is Geistlich Mucograft® an alternative for free gingival graft (FGG) or for connective tissue graft (CTG)?

For both. Geistlich Mucograft® is an alternative to free gingival graft or connective tissue graft for gaining keratinised tissue1-3. Geistlich Mucograft® is an alternative to CTG for recession coverage4-6.

Does Geistlich Mucograft® need pretreatment?

Geistlich Mucograft® is ready to be applied to the defect and does not need pretreatment or moisture before application. Due to its excellent hydrophilicity, the matrix will hydrate quickly after implantation in the defect by soaking rapidly the patient’s blood.

Should Geistlich Mucograft® be handled/applied wet or dry?

Geistlich recommends dry handling and application: Easy to trim, easy to pre-suture.

Does Geistlich Mucograft® swell after implantation?

Our measurements indicate that the matrix does not swell further after hydration (90 minute period examined)1.

Can Geistlich Mucograft® be stretched?

No. Geistlich Mucograft® shows a limited elongation and should always be sutured tension-free.

What suture should be used with Geistlich Mucograft®?

Published data show different suturing techniques with Geistlich Mucograft®: non-resorbable1,2 and resorbable3, 0-51,2 and 0-64. There is no clinical evidence showing a benefit of one type of suture over another one, when suturing Geistlich Mucograft®.

Which side of Geistlich Mucograft® should face the bone?

The compact structure should face outward, away from underlying bone, with the spongeous structure facing the bone or soft-tissue wound bed. Neither clinical nor comparative data on inverted device performance is available for Geistlich Mucograft®.

How many layers of Geistlich Mucograft® should be used?

In the majority of the individual cases treated thus far and for all the studies performed with Geistlich Mucograft®, one matrix layer was used. Presently, clinical data is not available to prove that several layers of the device outperform a single layer of Geistlich Mucograft®.
