|Tissue of origin||Cortical bone|
|Physical form||Rigid dried lamina - flexible after re-hydration|
|Estimated Resorption Time||About 6 months|
|Characteristics: Soft Cortical Lamina is made of cortical bone of heterologous origin produced with an exclusive Tecnoss process that avoids the ceramization of hydroxyapatite crystals, thus accelerating physiological resorption.
After a process of superficial decalcification, it acquires an elastic consistency, nevertheless maintaining the typical consistency of the bone tissue from which it originates; the margins are soft in order not to cause micro traumas to the surrounding tissues.
|Handling: Soft Cortical Lamina can be shaped with sterile scissors until the desired size is reached, then it must be hydrated for 5/10 minutes in sterile physiological solution. Once it acquires the desired plasticity, it must be adapted to the grafting site; it should always be immobilized either with titanium microscrews or sutured directly to the surrounding tissues with a triangular section non-traumatic needle.
In case of exposure, Lamina should only be removed if there is a clear suprainfection, because its consistency is such as to allow it to achieve a complete second intention healing of the wound.
CLINICAL INDICATIONS SUMMARY
Oral surgery and Traumatology: stabilization and protection of large regenerations with risks of exposure, where it perfectly adapts itself both to the underlying bone and to the soft tissues.
Implantology: ideal for protection and stabilization of two-wall defect grafts or peri-implant regenerations in esthetic areas. Fine model is also indicated for covering antrostomy.
Maxillofacial surgery: orbital floor restoration.
