When a skin substitute may be needed


Globally millions of operations are performed annually for dura repair, hernia repair and breast reconstruction. Usually synthetic mesh products provide reinforcement in such operations. Unfortunately, complications may arise postoperatively, including rejection of the mesh. The unique Kerecis reconstruction material provides strong repair hold, is revascularized and gradually replaced by the patient’s own tissue.

The FDA has approved Kerecis™ Omega3 SecureMesh as a surgical buttress in the United States. The product can be used in lung, bariatric, gastric, colorectal, and other surgeries.
