Tutoplast® Clear Cornea with Sclera processed allografts are virally safe, dehydrated, sterile, human tissue grafts. The Tutoplast® cornea with sclera is the latest innovation in anterior segment patch graft technology. This unique configuration combines both native clear cornea with adjacent, peripheral sclera to form a sturdy, customizable, cosmetically-appealing option for glaucoma shunt surgery.
The graft’s anterior corneal section provides a low-profile, more translucent cosmesis – while the posterior scleral rim provides a thicker, more robust barrier in closer approximation to the plate/tube junction.
The Tutoplast® process is a scientific and technology-based method of virally inactivating, preserving and sterilizing human tissue. The Tutoplast® benefits are vast:
Appropriate for use with all glaucoma drainage devices
Allows for room temperature storage
Five-year shelf life
Uniform and consistent in tissue quality
