NEVELIA® bi-layer matrix is a sterile medical device consisting of a collagen layer to promote dermal regeneration and a reinforced silicone layer acting as a pseudo-epidermis.
The type I, purified, stabilized, bovine origin collagen is supplied as a porous matrix. This matrix serves as a support for cell infiltration, thus contributes to the natural tissue regeneration process. It is resorbed, becoming a vascularized tissue that is histologically very close to the normal dermis, from 2 to 3 weeks after it is implanted. The silicone layer is removed after dermal regeneration, at the time of the thin split thickness skin graft.
NEVELIA® is a three-dimensional porous matrix of stabilized bovine origin type I Collagen.
NEVELIA® is made of a specific native collagen with a large fibrous proportion to keep cell adhesion signals and mechanical structure to support regeneration.
In vitro tests demonstrate an optimized colonization as fibroblasts recognize collagen fibers.
NEVELIA® is composed of medical-grade silicone elastomer reinforced with a polyester material.
NEVELIA® Bi-Layer Matrix is indicated for dermal regeneration in individuals with skin loss, particularly in the following fields:
- Burns surgery (third and deep second degree burns)
- Reconstructive plastic surgery
NEVELIA® Bi-Layer Matrix is used in combination with a thin split thickness skin graft (STSG) to recreate skin resembling normal skin in terms of function and appearance.
NEVELIA® can also be used in children.
