Indications for Use

Galatea scaffolds are indicated for use as a bioresorbable scaffold for soft tissue support and to repair, elevate and reinforce deficiencies where weakness or voids exist that require the addition of material to obtain the desired surgical outcome. This includes reinforcement of soft tissue in plastic and reconstructive surgery, and general soft tissue reconstruction. Galatea scaffolds are also indicated for the repair of fascial defects that require the addition of a reinforcing or bridging material to obtain the desired surgical result.

Galatea scaffolds offer a unique combination of properties that are optimal for soft tissue reinforcement in plastic and reconstructive surgery:  

Biologically derived - leaf icon

Biologically Derived

Produced by a safe and natural biological fermentation process, standard to antibiotic and vaccine production, designed for biocompatibility and a minimal inflammatory response [18]

Monofilament surgical scaffold - icon

Monofilament

Knitted with an open-pore design to encourage tissue in-growth and healing and to reduce the risk of bacterial colonization [24]

Strong icon

Strong

Provides a lattice for new tissue ingrowth with the resulting tissue 3-5x stronger than native tissue [15]

Bioresorbable icon

Bioresorbable

Naturally broken down to CO2 and H2O primarily through the process of hydrolysis, with full bioresorption by 18-24 months [7,8,15]
