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:
230 - 320 microns normal thickness, pre-hydration
Biologically and mechanically stable
Five-year shelf life with room temperature storage
Uniform and consistent in tissue quality
Improved suturability and handling
