Product Description

Tutoplast® processed allografts are virally safe, dehydrated, sterile human tissue grafts. 5-year shelf life with room temperature storage.

The pericardium patch grafts are comprised of:

  • Low profile collagen with a nominal thickness of 400 microns
  • Multi-directional matrix for superior surgical handling and suture utility
  • A low-profile which prevents graft bulkiness over the implant

The Tutoplast® process is a scientific and technology-based method of virally inactivating, preserving and sterilizing human tissue. The Tutoplast® benefits are vast:

  • Immunologically safe
  • Biologically and mechanically stable
  • Five-year shelf life with room temperature storage
  • Uniform and consistent in tissue quality
  • Improved suturability and handling

During the last 30 years, over 1 million Tutoplast® allografts have been surgically implanted without a single documented case of disease transmission.

Surgical applications:

  • Drainage implant/valve implantation
  • Repair corneoscleral fistulas
  • Trabeculectomy
  • Repair exposed scleral buckles
  • Phaco burns
