AlloShield is a multipurpose, Chorion Free resorbable tissue matrix allograft derived from the amniotic membrane. Rich with the basic components necessary for tissue regeneration, AlloShield provides an anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, protective matrix that promotes healing and reduces scarring and adhesions. Amniotic tissue is also considered immune privileged, thus posing minimal risk when inserted into a host.
AlloShield is processed at an AATB accredited facility, following all FDA guidelines. Donors undergo extensive prescreening for any communicable diseases, and recovery is performed by AATB accredited technicians utilizing aseptic technique.
Alloshield is an ideal protective matrix that can be utilized for a variety of clinical applications including:
- Orthopedics: Augment tendon, fascia, ligament and capsule repair
- Neurosurgery: Dura repair, Nerve Bundle protection, Craniotomy
- Spinal Surgery: Laminectomy, Discectomy, Spinal Muscle and Nerve Protection
- General Surgery: Hernia Repair, Scar and Adhesion Reduction
- Wound/Burn Management: Topical Wound Dressing
- Reconstructive Surgery: Scar and Adhesion Reduction
- Qualifies as a 361 tissue
- Minimally manipulated
Donor tissue is recovered using the safest recovery techniques and sterile equipment to minimize any bioburden contamination. Tissues are procured via a network of qualified and trained recovery partners, one of the most stringent screening and recovery protocols, and a highly controlled processing environment, thus countering the risks of disease transmission at every step. All tissues are processed aseptically and sterilized using Gamma irradiation to ensure patient safety.
It is recommended that membrane allografts be stored in a clean, dry environment at ambient temperature until the expiration date shown on allograft label. Product may be refrigerated.
