Are all biologic grafts the same?
No. Over time, the Biodesign® source material remodels completely into new patient tissue—letting the body’s own defence mechanisms fight infection naturally.
Once it’s implanted in the body, the Biodesign® source material helps the patient’s own cells infiltrate the scaffold and remodel the material into natural patient tissue. Biodesign becomes remodelled by the body over a period of several weeks.(14-16)
Day 0 - Implanted
Day 7 - Caramelisation
The body begins to send cells into the material.
8 weeks - Granulation tissue begins to form.
The Biodesign Hernia Graft is sourced from porcine small intestinal submucosa (SIS). Small intestinal submucosa supports one of the harshest environments in the body and supports rapid cell turnover.(21)
