SCIENCE

Chondro Matrix is a high-tech sterile absorbable matrix with sponge-like characteristics.  The non-woven Polymer strands are treated with Sodium Hyaluronate to aid in the healing of articular cartilage damages within a bone-marrow stimulating technique.  Chondro Matrix is a cell-free implant for joint cartilage repair and used for cartilage repair and for the surgical treatment of pain and restricted mobility in degenerative and traumatic changes of the synovial joints.

Chondro Matrix is intended to cover traumatic cartilage defects in the healing of articular cartilage defects. The compact layer with a smooth surface plays the role of a barrier, preventing the mesenchymal stem cells from diffusing into the joint space and protecting them against mechanical stress.  Chondro Matrix induces mesenchymal progenitor cells (stem cells) to differentiate into cartilage cells.

DEGRADATION

The PGA polymer of Chondro Matrix is metabolised by the body into CO2 and H2O.
