Galatea Surgical offers non-cadaveric, non-human, non-animal, biologically derived scaffolds for plastic and reconstructive surgery procedures that provide immediate elevation and reinforcement of soft tissue.
Indications for Use
GalaFLEX, GalaFLEX 3D and GalaFLEX 3DR (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 scaffold is 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 Scaffold Monofilament Construction – Photo 20x
The Galatea collection of scaffolds offers a unique combination of properties that are designed for soft tissue reinforcement in plastic and reconstructive surgery procedures.
Produced by a safe biological fermentation process, standard in pharmaceutical production. [12, 17]
Designed to minimize risk of infection and encourage a natural healing response. [3, 15]
Provides a lattice for new tissue ingrowth and regeneration resulting in tissue 3-4x stronger than native tissue. [9, 16, 19]
Naturally broken down to CO2 and H2O and bioresorption is essentially complete by 18-24 months. [1,12]
The first and only formed absorbable scaffold designed to fit and uplift the body's natural shape, providing easier placement and reduced procedure time.
