THE STYPRO® SPONGES MADE OF PORCINE GELATINE
Stypro® is a sterile, highly porous sponge that is implantable and resorbable. This biomaterial, which was originally developed for hemostasis and is used for that purpose in a wide range of surgical fields, is further characterized by outstanding workability. More recent applications have demonstrated advantages also in tissue engineering and thus in wound healing of soft-tissue defects.
The stypro® sponges made of porcine gelatine have the capability to initialize hemostasis (clotting).
- Interconnecting porosity with no thrombin or other additives
- Use with physiological saline solution with no impairment of hemostatic properties
- Complete resorption within approximately 3 weeks
- No evidence of PERV (porcine endogenous retrovirus)– DNA sequences
