Extracellular Matrix Device Designed to Reinforce Soft Tissue in a Range of Implantable Settings
Columbia, MD—(April 11, 2018) – ACell, Inc. today announced the introduction of Gentrix Incisional, a new implantable device comprised of the company’s proprietary MatriStem UBM™ technology, designed to reinforce soft tissue in surgical site incisions.
Gentrix Incisional is an extracellular matrix that facilitates the remodeling of site-appropriate, functional tissue where scarring would be expected. The device provides a scaffold for cellular infiltration and neovascularization, and can be used to reinforce primary closure of soft tissue in a variety of surgical settings.
“Gentrix Incisional is ideal for surgical cases where there are concerns about the integrity of the soft tissue repair,” said Thomas W. Gilbert, Ph.D., Chief Science Officer. “It is targeted for patients and procedures where additional reinforcement of primary closure is desired.”
“We are excited to offer an additional tool to surgeons and their patients with the introduction of Gentrix Incisional,” said Patrick A. McBrayer, President and CEO. “This addition to our family of MatriStem UBM devices represents our continued commitment to providing innovative and effective solutions in the area of surgical soft tissue reinforcement.”
