Geistlich Fibro-Gide®

 

Geistlich Fibro-Gide® is a porcine, porous, resorbable and volume-stable collagen matrix, specifically designed for soft-tissue regeneration.1 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 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.3,7-9
