DUREPAIR DURA REGENERATION MATRIX
Durepair™ Regeneration Matrix is a non-synthetic dura substitute used to repair defects in the dura.
WHAT IS DUREPAIR?
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks during surgery often result in extra time in the operating room. A CSF leak after surgery may require re-operation – adding more time and cost to a patient’s care.1 In addition, products that are too delicate and difficult to handle can be time consuming and frustrating to work with.1 Durepair was manufactured to address these issues.
Durepair is a non-synthetic dura substitute for repair of the dura mater during neurosurgical procedures. It uses a patented technology to produce a strong yet flexible collagen matrix that can be applied as an onlay or suturable graft.2
