Cortiva® 1mm Tailored Allograft Dermis

Cortiva 1mm Allograft Dermis

Cortiva® 1mm Tailored Allograft Dermis is a non-crosslinked* acellular dermal matrix offering a safe and natural option for supplemental support and reinforcement of soft tissue in soft tissue augmentation procedures such as post-mastectomy breast reconstruction. The implant is sterilized through the Tutoplast Tissue Sterilization Process. *Data on file at RTI Surgical. 

Regulatory approvals vary by country. Therefore, we kindly ask you to contact the distributor in your region regarding availability of specific products, implants and / or instrumentation in your region.
