The Chondro-SCAFFOLD membrane is a unique development in the line of products for traumatology. This high-tech product has no analogues on the Russian market and was developed under the guidance of leading experts.
The membrane is a matrix or scaffold based on extracellular collagen matrix of the submucosal base of the pig's small intestine (SIS-small intestine submucosa). It contains type I and III collagen, elastin, glycosaminoglycans (heparin, chondroitin sulfate A) and proteoglycans (decorin, heparin-sulfate), which provide active adhesion, cell proliferation, migration and binding, regulation of the fibrillar structure of proteins and active angiogenesis. Due to the presence of residual decorin, it does not form scars and adhesions, after implantation it is "populated by cells" of the surrounding tissue, and very quickly transforms into cartilage tissue.
The membrane is intended for use in orthopedics in order to regenerate damaged articular cartilage using the "StaMP" method (directed autochondrogenesis on an extracellular scaffold).
The use of the membrane helps to reduce pain in the postoperative period, faster and more effective recovery of cartilage tissue. The safety and effectiveness of the medical device has been proven.
