What is TIGR®Matrix?
TIGR®Matrix is the world’s first long-term resorbable, 100% synthetic mesh, made from materials that have been in clinical use since the 1970s (lactide, glycolide, trimethylene carbonate). It’s unique technology consists of dual-stage degradation and full resorption.
Used by surgeons around the world
Over time TIGR®Matrix degrades and load is gradually transferred to the newly regenerated tissue during the remodeling phase resulting in new functional tissue.
Initial wound healing
Material rigidity ensures stability during initial wound healing.2
TIGR® Matrix develops more flexible mechanics that allow for movement during remodeling.1
After 36 months, the material is completely resorbed and replaced by well-structured collagen.1
