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.

Features & Benefits

  • Sterilized to SAL 10-6 via LOW temperature, LOW dose gamma irradiation 
  • Multi-step preservation and sterilization process validated by tissue type (SAL10-6)
  • Removes antigenicity and inactivates pathogens
  • Maintains structure, biomechanics and remodeling characteristics
  • 98% alpha-gal removal1
  • At least 11 log reduction of viruses highly resistant to processing2
  • Ready to use: From package to patient, requires no rinsing or rehydration
  • Consistent thickness for uniform repair
  • Wide range of sizes including 35x35 cm
  • Temperature indicator for quick indication of proper storage
  • Rounded corners for ease of suturing
