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.
Possible complications following implantation of Galatea scaffolds include infection, seroma, pain, scaffold migration, wound dehiscence, hemorrhage, adhesions, hematoma, inflammation, extrusion and recurrence of the soft tissue defect. For complete prescribing information, including indications for use, warnings and precautions, consult the specific Galatea scaffold Instructions for Use.
