ACell announced that it has launched the new MatriStem Multilayer Wound Matrix device for deep, hard-to-heal, full-thickness wounds. The 1:1 mesh design of MatriStem Multilayer Wound Matrix is built to accommodate moderate to heavy wound exudate and provides effective contouring functionality in wound application.

MatriStem products are medical devices that maintain and support a healing environment through constructive remodeling.

Comprised of naturally-occurring urinary bladder matrix (UBM), MatriStem maintains an intact epithelial basement membrane which is hypothesized to facilitate the body’s natural healing potential.

The MatriStem Multilayer Wound Matrix device is easy to prepare, apply and fixate and requires no special handling or storage requirements. MatriStem Multilayer Wound Matrix is appropriate for both acute and chronic wounds.

Jim DeFrancesco, Chief Executive Officer and Board Director, remarked, "ACell has developed MatriStem Multilayer Wound Matrix to address an unmet need in the area of acute and chronic wound care management. The launch of this new product provides a new option for physicians treating patients suffering from deep, hard-to-heal wounds."

MatriStem devices have received multiple 510(k) clearances from the FDA and are indicated for wound management including for pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, diabetic ulcers, surgical wounds and trauma wounds, and the reinforcement of soft tissue where weakness exists in urological, gynecological and gastroenterological anatomy.
