Suspend fascia lata fiber configuration of collagen bundles, connected by transverse faciculi, creates a material that also gives high unilateral tensile strength. Suspend is extracted from the front of the thigh in large pieces. It conform easily to flatten against irregular surface profiles and provide a scaffold for the body’s natural regenerative healing.
Our Tutoplast cleaning process inactivates transmissible pathogens such as HIV, CJD and hepatitis. How? Tissue is process by thorough tissue cleaning, processing, dehydration, and preservation. The integrity of the tissue and preservation of the collagen matrix is maintained through the Tutoplast process. All organic material is removed.
Suspend offers quick hydration. This saves time and offers flexibility to make intraoperative size decisions. The Coloplast biologic grafts come in a variety of sizes and can be trimmed to fit the patient. Suspend arrives sterile and is shelf stable for five years.
Suspend is never freeze dried. The tissue's fibrous strength and consistency is maintained from implant to implant. (cf. 4)
