For total compatibility between the Bone Level and Tissue Level approaches.
Geistlich Fibro-Gide® is a porcine, porous, resorbable and volume-stable collagen matrix, specifically designed for soft-tissue regeneration. The collagen matrix is made of reconstituted collagen and undergoes smart chemically cross-linking to improve its volume stability while maintaining a good biocompatibility.
The porous network of Geistlich Fibro-Gide® supports angiogenesis, formation of new connective tissue and stability of the collagen network in submerged healing. In vivo animal models have shown good integration of Geistlich Fibro-Gide® into the surrounding soft-tissue while maintaining stability.
Geistlich Fibro-Gide® is the alternative to autogenous connective tissue grafts (CTG), which are considered as the gold standard in regenerative soft-tissue procedures. With Geistlich Fibro-Gide® additional harvest site is avoided, patient morbidity is reduced.
The product advantages
Unlimited availability and consistent quality.1
Measure the defect and trim the matrix to the desired size and thickness.1
Once moist, the matrix can be further trimmed to the desired size and thickness.1
Geistlich Fibro-Gide® can easily be sutured.1
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 defect.1
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 site.2-4
Geistlich Fibro-Gide® should be used as a submerged graft to increase soft-tissue thickness around implants and natural teeth.1
