AxoGen out of Alachua, Florida is announcing U.S. availability of the company’s AxoGuard Nerve Protector and AxoGuard Nerve Connector products for peripheral nerve repair surgeries. The Nerve Protector is designed to wrap around and shield nerves, while the Connector helps align nerve endings for attachment during the procedure.
AxoGuard™ Nerve Protector and AxoGuard™ Nerve Connector are comprised of a three-dimensional extracellular matrix that supports regeneration and healing. AxoGuard™ works with the body to remodel and revascularize, allowing the products to support the natural nerve healing process. In addition, AxoGuard™, unlike other materials such as synthetics, is able to be implanted into a contaminated or dirty wound, since the material is resistant to infection.
AxoGuard™ Nerve Protector is designed to wrap and protect peripheral nerves. It
can reinforce a coaptation site, wrap a partially severed or compressed nerve, and isolate nerve tissue during the healing process. The design minimizes the potential for scar formation and nerve entrapment while reducing the risk of neuromas. It allows the nerve to glide within a protective covering while gradually remodeling into the patient`s own tissue.
AxoGuard™ Nerve Connector is designed to align and connect peripheral nerves. It is a coaptation aid, meaning it joins together two nerve endings, allowing close approximation and alignment of severed nerve ends.
