Omega3 Fatty Acids
Kerecis produces tissue-based, skin-substitute products for use in surgery and for treating wounds. Compared to other tissue-transplant products, the KerecisTM Omega3 fish skin is cost-effective, offers improved clinical performance, reduces the risk of disease transfer, and has no cultural constraints on usage.
When the dura becomes damaged as a result of head injury, cancer ingrowth, or brain surgery, dural substitutes are necessary to prevent leakage of the spinal fluids and to ensure that dura openings heal after surgery. Kerecis™ Omega3 Dura has been specially designed for the reconstruction of dura matter. Kerecis™ Omega3 Dura is similar to the natural dura and can be fully absorbed and integrated into the patient’s own tissue. Kerecis™ Omega3 Dura is stretchable and easy to suture, helping to contain the brain, spine, and spinal fluid and to facilitate unsurpassed strong and lasting repair of the dura.
