Performance: The AlloDermTM difference

Take a closer look: Regeneration is key
Choose a topic below to read more:

Tissue integrity

Not all processing is the same: AlloDermTM RTM processing maintains tissue integrity

AlloDermTM RTM is minimally manipulated and gently processed to ensure it retains components critical to maintaining the biochemical and biomechanical integrity of the native tissue. As an undamaged tissue matrix, the native collagen architecture, including basement membrane structure, is maintained throughout the gentle LifeCell Tissue Process. An intact tissue matrix is vital for a positive immunologic response and regeneration.5-7

Dissimilar collagen structure

Body’s response

Maintaining tissue integrity is essential to achieving successful biological outcomes

*Correlation of these results, based on animal studies, to results in humans has not been established.

Cell repopulation and revascularization

AlloDermTM RTM supported rapid revascularization, fibroblast
repopulation, and remodeling in a preclinical model

An undamaged tissue matrix supports revascularization and cell repopulation. Damaged matrices experience delayed revascularization, which impedes white blood cell migration and fibroblast formation.6-8,11*

Take a closer look at AlloDermTM RTM
AlloDermTM RTM revealed widespread cellular infiltration with distribution of fibroblasts and numerous blood vessels.12 Damaged tissue matrices have a lack of fibroblast and blood vessel formation.13-15*

Widespread fibroblast &
blood vessel formation

The importance of cell repopulation and revascularization

Supports remodeling

Supports remodeling

Without vascular supply, there is no pathway for cells to remodel the tissue.16

Resists infection

Resists infection

Formation of intact vascular channels allows white blood cells to migrate to the site of an infection to minimize risk.17

Prevents necrosis

Prevents necrosis

Cellularized tissue matrices that do not revascularize will necrose.18

Minimal inflammation

AlloDermTM RTM demonstrated minimal inflammation in a preclinical model

Damaged matrices are viewed by the body as foreign and trigger a chronic inflammatory response that leads to matrix degradation or encapsulation, which may impede regeneration. An undamaged tissue matrix elicits a minimal inflammatory response because it retains the structure and function of the tissue to support regeneration.6-8*

Take a closer look at AlloDermTM RTM
Through the preservation of an intact matrix, AlloDermTM RTM elicited a minimal inflammatory response and no evidence of scar tissue formation in a preclinical model, as confirmed via the limited presence of macrophages and absence of foreign-body giant cells. The minimal inflammation contributes to the rapid and complete restoration of tissue during healing. Damaged tissue matrices elicit chronic inflammatory response demonstrated by foreign-body giant cells (noted by small circles) and hypercellular mixed inflammatory infiltrate (noted by dashed circle).12-15,19*

Minimal inflammatory
response

The negative effects of chronic inflammation

Prevents
remodeling

Prevents
remodeling

The body perceives a damaged tissue matrix as foreign, which may cause inflammation that impedes regeneration.6,7*

Provokes scar
formation

Provokes scar formation

Chronic inflammation often results in the formation of scar tissue. As inflammation increases, the rate of scar tissue formation is exacerbated.20,21*

Inhibits the ability
to fight infection

Inhibits the ability
to fight infection

Chronic inflammation may delay revascularization, which may impede fibroblast integration, blood vessel formation, and the ability to fight infection.22,23

Lack of scar formation

Positive recognition of AlloDermTM RTM supports a regenerative
rather than fibrotic response, as shown in preclinical models The body will recognize materials differently and respond in one of two different ways: positive recognition or negative recognition. Excessive or prolonged inflammation from negative recognition often promotes fibrosis. The fibrotic process is the opposite of functional tissue regeneration. Positive outcomes are most often associated with minimized inflammatory response.7,12,21*

Wound healing cascade

Weak

Weak

Scar tissue has suboptimal functional, biomechanical, and physiological characteristics. It is weaker than normal fascia.20,21,24

Contractile

Contractile

A damaged tissue matrix is more likely to result in greater levels of scar and subsequent contracture. In a primate model, AlloDerm™ RTM demonstrated minimal contraction.8,12*

Causes visual deformities

Causes visual deformities

Graft contraction can cause a visual deformity (loss of domain) and reduce function and mobility of the tissue.20

Lack of resorption

AlloDermTM RTM did not demonstrate resorption of the graft in a primate model

Take a closer look at AlloDermTM RTM

An undamaged tissue matrix retains the structural and biomechanical properties that allow for positive recognition, supporting regeneration. Damaged matrices have altered structure and therefore are viewed by the body as foreign, which leads to contraction and resorption of the graft.5-8*

AlloDerm™ RTM showed minimal change in size 1 month after implantation in a primate model, demonstrating a lack of resorption and minimal contracture of surrounding tissue.12*

Baseline at time of placement
3 cm x 7 cm12,13,15

Representative gross photographs of tissue matrices evaluated following 1-month implantation in NHP-AWR model. Sample are taken from 3 different studies that followed the same protocol and were performed at the same institution at different times. All tissue matrices were fixated to the edges of a 3 x 7 cm full-thickness defect in the abdominal wall of nonhuman primates in an interpositional bridging configuration. *Correlation of these results, based on animal studies, to results in humans has not been established.

Consequences of resorption

Loss of strength

Loss of strength

Damaged ADMs demonstrated a loss of graft strength due to resorption.8,25

Loss of support

Loss of support

Damaged ADMs have demonstrated decreased biomechanical healing strength and diminished graft integrity.25

Replaced
with scar

Replaced with scar

A damaged tissue matrix may lead to degradation, resulting in partial or complete resorption and replacement of collagen matrix fibers with scar tissue.6,8,26

Pliability and handling

AlloDermTM RTM offers desired pliability and handling27

An undamaged tissue matrix retains elastin, which functions in close association with collagen to provide elasticity and shape retention. AlloDermTM RTM revealed widespread evidence of elastin in out-of-package staining.6,7,28

Take a closer look at AlloDermTM RTM

The maintenance of graft integrity in AlloDermTM RTM, including intact collagen fibers and elastin microfibrils, allows for surgeon-preferred handling and pliability. AlloDermTM RTM provides appropriate mechanical properties, including tensile strength and elasticity, both out-of-package as well as following implantation.5-7,27*

*Correlation of these results, based on animal studies, to results in humans has not been established.

AlloDermTM RTM demonstrated pliability and drapeability out-of-package30

Importance of pliability

Conforms to defect

Conforms to defect

An undamaged tissue matrix retains characteristics of native tissue and is pliable and able to conform to a defect.5,29

Tissue apposition

Tissue apposition

Tissue needs to conform to defect to have appropriate apposition to the vascular surface to revascularize.30

Better handling

Ideal handling

Tissue processed using certain damaging reagents can affect tissue characteristics and collagen structure.5,10
