GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement - 3

GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement is constructed with a proven, 100 percent bioabsorbable material, polyglycolic acid:trimethylene carbonate (PGA:TMC) fibers. Without the risks associated with biologics, this synthetic tissue scaffold provides uniformity and consistency. Derived neither from human nor animal tissue, GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement is designed to break down primarily by hydrolysis. Within one to two weeks, the patient’s cells migrate into the scaffold and begin generating vascularized soft tissue. Gradually over approximately six to seven months, the material is absorbed...
