Helimend Collagen Membrane (Resorbable)
INTEGRA absorbable collagen membranes are white, compressed, non-friable matrices fabricated from collagen derived from bovine-deep flexor (Achilles) tendon. These collagen products provide wound stabilization and create space during guided tissue regeneration procedures where an extended resorption profile is desired. These membranes are completely absorbable, eliminating the need for the second surgery that is often required to remove a non-resorbable membrane.
The HeliMend membrane incorporates into the surrounding tissue and is generally reabsorbed within 4-8 weeks, and the HeliMend Advanced collagen membrane is generally reabsorbed within 18 weeks.
