Overview

Overview

Myriad Matrix is an engineered extracellular matrix (ECM) for soft tissue repair, reinforcement and complex wounds. Myriad Matrix has been specifically designed to help maximize tissue repair while providing versatility and adaptability across a wide range of surgical applications.

Myriad Matrix is designed to be easily customizable for a wide range of anatomical sites and surgical needs and can be used in both implantation and dermal repair.

  • Myriad Matrix is strong, soft, drapable, and conforming
  • Myriad Matrixrehydrates quickly and is easy to cut, suture or staple
  • Myriad Matrix helps to achieve surgical mastery in routine and challenging repair and reinforcement procedures

How It Works

How It Works

Myriad Matrix™ devices contain the natural porous structure of AROA ECM™, engineered with interstitial perforations to enable cell infiltration to facilitate rapid healing.

Fast absorption of blood & cells accelerates host cell infiltration

The rapid absorption of blood and blood components forms a reservoir of biologically important cells and cell components to help kick-start the tissue repair process.(1-4) Fibroblast, endothelial and immune cells infiltrate the entire matrix, build new tissue and over time Myriad Matrix™ is completely remodeled by the patient’s own tissue.(3, 4)

Delivers biology known to be important in healing

Myriad Matrix™ retains the authentic structure and complexity of natural tissue ECM and provides biological cues to aid the repair process.(5) Myriad Matrix™ contains more than 150 ECM proteins, including collagen and other secondary molecules that exist in tissue and aid the healing process.(6)

Contains residual vascular channels

Angioconduction is the structural effect of vascular channels on endothelial cells to support blood vessel development. Myriad Matrix™ promotes angioconduction via the residual vascular channels within the Aroa ECM™ source biomaterial, helping to facilitate the rapid establishment of a dense capillary network.(7, 8)
