Matrix Patch

Matrix Patch is a cell-free equine pericardial patch for repair and reconstruction in cardiac and vascular surgery.

It shows excellent mechanical properties comparable to conventional glutaraldehyde treated patches. Its handling is more flexible and reveals improved suture properties with reduced needle-hole bleeding.

Matrix Patch is manufactured without the use of glutaraldehyde according to a unique Processing-technique that additionally prevents tissue calcium and lipid accumulation.

Equine pericardium has been shown to provide excellent mechanical properties, biological compatibility and freedom from transmissible diseases. For more than 10 years pericardial tissue is an essential part of stentless aortic valves.

The Matrix Patch is shipped in sterile antibiotic solution and can be stored refrigerated at 4-8°C for up to 18 month. Therefore the patch is available of the shelf and can be used, after a short rinsing, to remove the antibiotic-solution, without any other priming.
