DURAFORM™ Dural Graft Implant

  • category: Closure
  • focus: Dural Substitutes

Tearing and difficulty in handling of onlay dural substitutes can be a costly, frustrating and time consuming part of duraplasty procedures. Fortunately, today's neurosurgeons have a new option, DURAFORM™ Dural Graft Implant. Manufactured using a patent-pending process, it has better handling characteristics and greater tear resistance than other onlay dural graft materials. As a result, DURAFORM holds up to wet handling and forceps manipulation.
However, strength and handling are not enough. CSF leak resistance is another key factor in the overall effectiveness and value of dural substitutes. DURAFORM answers this call with a unique design that incorporates two different textured surfaces to give it enhanced wet handling capabilities and excellent anatomical conformity.
DURAFORM is made of a collagen-based biocompatible material that exhibits improved tensile strength and wet handling capabilities. The collagen used in its production is obtained from a geographical BSE risk level 1 source, the lowest risk category available. In fact, GLP animal data shows effective neodural tissue development, with no evidence of graft encapsulation.

A unique combination of superior strength, handling and conforming capabilities is helping DURAFORM mark an evolution in duraplasty. To learn more contact your Codman Sales Representative.
