Indications for Use

GalaFLEX, GalaFLEX 3D and GalaFLEX 3DR scaffolds are indicated for use as bioresorbable scaffolds 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. These products, referred to as 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.

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

Biologically Derived

Produced by a safe biological fermentation process, standard in pharmaceutical production. [12, 17]

Monofilament

Designed to minimize risk of infection and encourage a natural healing response. [3, 15]

Strong

Provides a lattice for new tissue ingrowth and regeneration resulting in tissue 3-4x stronger than native tissue. [9, 16, 19]

Bioabsorbable

Naturally broken down to CO2 and H2O and bioabsorption is essentially complete by 18-24 months.
[1,12]

3-Dimensional

The first and only formed absorbable scaffold designed to fit and uplift the body's natural shape, providing easier placement and reduced procedure time. [1]

Predictible Performance

Promotes healing and stability due to predictable performance. [1]
