A synthetic alternative to biologics, GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement is a bioabsorbable scaffold designed to facilitate tissue generation. The uniquely designed web of biocompatible synthetic polymers is absorbed gradually by the body, while its three-dimensional matrix of open, highly interconnected pores facilitates tissue generation and healing. Gradually over approximately six months, the material is absorbed by the body and replaced 1:1 with the patient’s own favorable type I collagen. GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement can be used in several indications such as paraesophageal/hiatal hernia repair, abdominal wall reconstruction, abdominoperineal resection, stoma reversal, and breast reconstruction using pedicled TRAM flap.
