Geistlich Fibro-Gide®

User Benefits

Geistlich Fibro-Gide® is a porcine, porous, resorbable and volume-stable collagen matrix, specifically designed for soft-tissue regeneration.1,4,10 The collagen matrix is made of reconstituted collagen and undergoes smart chemical cross-linking to improve its volume stability while maintaining a good biocompatibility.1-3,4-10 The porous network of Geistlich Fibro-Gide® supports angiogenesis, formation of new connective tissue and stability of the collagen network in submerged healing.2,3 In vivo animal models have shown good integration of Geistlich Fibro-Gide® into the surrounding soft-tissue while maintaining stability.4

Geistlich Fibro-Gide® is the alternative to autogenous connective tissue grafts (CTG), which are considered as the gold standard in regenerative soft-tissue procedures.3,5,6 With Geistlich Fibro-Gide® additional harvest site is avoided, patient morbidity is reduced.3,7-8

Inspired by Nature, engineered by Geistlich

The collagen expertise of Geistlich has led to a tailor-made product meeting the clinical needs and providing therapeutic solutions in oral soft tissue regeneration. More than 1,000 prototypes were developed and tested in order to get a product like Geistlich Fibro-Gide®.10

Handling of Geistlich Fibro-Gide® is very easy compared to connective tissue grafts:

  • Unlimited availability and consistent quality1
  • Measure the defect and trim the matrix to the desired size and thickness1
  • Once moist, the matrix can be further trimmed to the desired size and thickness1
  • Geistlich Fibro-Gide® can easily be sutured1
  • No need for pre-treatment: Excellent hydrophilic characteristics lead to rapid hydration by patient’s own blood and/or sterile saline solution with a volume increase of approx. 3-12 %1
  • The soaked matrix adapts to contours and adheres well to the defect1
  • Squeezing and re-hydration: Once squeezed, the matrix goes back to its initial state after remoistening (considering the additional swelling of approx. 25 %)1
  • Geistlich Fibro-Gide® does not require a second surgical site2-4
  • Geistlich Fibro-Gide® should be used as a submerged graft to increase soft-tissue thickness around implants and natural teeth1
