Main Conclusions

  • ArtiFascia® prevented leakage of saline under different physiological pressures (tested for 30 min.)
  • ArtiFascia® demonstrated better suture retention compared to saturable DuraGen®.
  • ArtiFascia® showed superior tensile strength as compared to DuraGen®.
  • ArtiFascia® showed excellent adherence properties without sutures, when tested on a wet film of collagen under increasing burst pressures (of air).
  • ArtiFascia® can withstand pressure of over 90mmHg (saline) before leakage occurs.
