About MatriStem®
MatriStem Products are porcine-derived extracellular matrix (ECM), essential structures that maintain and support a healing environment through constructive tissue remodeling. MatriStem contains the basement membrane of porcine urinary bladder tissue, or urinary bladder matrix (UBM).  UBM is a layer of tissue that is a critical component of constructive tissue remodeling. It provides MatriStem with several distinguishable characteristics, including the ability to facilitate the body's own regenerative capabilities and help restore normal site-appropriate tissue while avoiding scar tissue formation; the ability to be used "off-the-shelf" and stored at room temperature; and superior ease-of-use. MatriStem products are indicated for use in a wide range of regenerative and tissue repair applications and come in a range of sizes and thicknesses. It is the only ECM of its kind available in powder form. It has been cleared for use in general surgery, gynecological surgery and a wide range of wounds, including diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers, pressure, surgical, and tunneled wounds. Refer to the Instructions For Use supplied with each device for indications, contraindications, and precautions. All MatriStem devices are made in the USA.
