Fortiva™ Porcine Dermis
Fortiva™ porcine dermis is a non-crosslinked acellular porcine dermal matrix offering a safe and natural biologic option. Fortiva implants are processed through the Tutoplast® Tissue Sterilization Process and terminally sterilized via validated low temperature, low dose gamma irradiation to achieve a sterility assurance level (SAL) of 10-6. Fortiva porcine dermis is a ready-to-use biologic implant that acts as a scaffold allowing for neovascularization and permitting replacement of the implant with the patient’s tissue.
