CorMatrix® Cardiac Tissue Repair

CorMatrix®Cardiac Tissue Repair is used to repair intracardiac tissues, damaged cardiac structures, or during procedures when cardiovascular prosthetics (such as valves) do not fit properly. CorMatrix is ideal for intracardiac surgery based on its ability to structurally support repairs and remodel tissue. In cases such as atrial septal defect repair, CorMatrix Cardiac Tissue Repair can effectively close a hole and generate new, healthy tissue in lieu of using objects such as nitinol plugs or synthetic patches. Because CorMatrix is gradually replaced by native tissues as it remodels, there is no foreign material left behind.

Benefits:

  • Effectively closes holes, restores natural cardiac tissue, and leaves behind NO foreign material
  • Ideal for intracardiac repairs or procedures when cardiovascular prosthetics do not fit properly
  • Unlike synthetic grafts, CorMatrix encourages the body’s natural immune response
  • CorMatrix allows capillary in-growth and infiltration of white blood cells into newly remodeled tissue

Ideal Uses for CorMatrix:

  • ASD Repair
  • VSD Repair
  • Aortic Root Enlargement
  • Left Ventricular Aneurysm Repair
  • Sinus of Valsalva Aneurysm
  • Repair of Cardiac Tumors
  • Endocarditis
  • Use as a Pledget
  • Suture Line Buttressing
