Biodesign is a non-dermis, non-cross–linked biologic graft technology that moves beyond:

beyond to completely remodeled tissue
beyond to a strong repair
beyond to alternative treatment options

advanced tissue repair


  • high elastin content
  • elastin can remain and stretch over time
  • stretch can result in recurrence


  • Biodesign only contains trace amounts of elastin
  • is remodeled without unwanted stretch


  • Biodesign maintains sufficient strength throughout remodeling
  • is remodeled into strong, vascularized tissue


  • inhibits remodeling and ingrowth
  • is associated with encapsulation and chronic inflammation


NOTE: Any surgery has the potential for complications. The following complications are possible with the use of Biodesign® Advanced Tissue Repair Products: bleeding, infection, abscess, induration, acute or chronic inflammation (initial application of surgical graft materials may be associated with transient, mild, localized inflammation), allergic reaction, visceral adhesions, fistula formation, seroma formation, hematoma, extrusion, recurrence of tissue defect, and delayed or failed incorporation of the device.
