Biodesign® Anal Fistula Fistula
The Biodesign® Fistula Plug Anal Fistula (Surgisis) Cook Medical is a rolled configuration used for implantation to reinforce soft tissue for repair of anorectal fistulas.
The processing of Biodesign carefully maintains inherent growth factors and glycoproteins that give it the unique ability to signal the body to restore itself. Many other biologic grafts are processed in a way that removes noncollagen elements, limiting the graft`s signaling ability. In contrast, Biodesign, made submucosal tissue, contains only trace amounts of elastin and results in a repair that does not suffer long-term stretching. Biodesign becomes stronger over time. Once Biodesign is implanted in the body, growth factors and proteins augment the body`s natural response to begin healing. When new cells begin to infiltrate the scaffold, signaling factors such as glycosaminoglycans and glycoproteins help guide the cells toward remodeling.
Biodesign completely remodels into strong, fully vascularized tissue. Once the healing process is complete, Biodesign is undetectableâ€”providing a permanent repair without a permanent material.
