The Permacol Biologic implant combines the best of the natural repair material and the size options provided by many synthetic materials. Designed for use in both open and laparoscopic cases, Permacol is strong and durable in the repair of the human body. It is an acellular biologic matrix of collagen and elastin but enhanced with a unique process to support the collagen matrix with HMDI, thereby resisting collagen breakdown during remodeling. This allows for ordered cellular ingrowth and neovascularization of the implant. Available in a variety of sizes, Permacol is easy to use with no hydration needed, no waiting for expansion, is easily shaped while maintaining dimensional stability.
