An implantable bilayered synthetic dermal matrix designed to facilitate complex wound closure.

NovoSorb® BTM is composed of a 2mm wound-facing biodegradable foam matrix, bonded to a non-biodegradable transparent sealing membrane. Developed for the treatment of full-thickness wounds where the dermal structure has been lost.

Cellular migration throughout the matrix enables collagen production and neovascularisation of a robust neodermis. When ready, the sealing membrane is removed, leaving a vascularised neodermis, ready for closure. The matrix progressively bioabsorbs over time.3

Matrix architecture breaks a macro wound into a series of interconnected micro wounds that the body can readily heal.
