Stryker is committed to offering surgeons new solutions to their challenging cases. Peripheral nerve injuries have traditionally been some of the most challenging cases for surgeons.
Stryker now provides collagen conduits for short nerve gap repairs, NeuroMatrix* and Neuroflex*.
NeuroMatrix/Neuroflex is a resorbable, semi-permeable, collagen tubular matrix designed to create a conduit for axon growth across a nerve gap. The NeuroMatrix and Neuroflex conduits are appropriate for nerve injuries where the gap is 2.5cm or less.
*NeuroMatrix and Neuroflex are Manufactured by Collagen Matrix, Inc.
