Main Conclusion

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