Strattice™ Reconstructive Tissue Matrix

About Strattice™ Firm

Preservation of intact extracellular matrix is critical to support regeneration.


Strattice™ Reconstructive Tissue Matrix is obtained from pig skin and undergoes a non-damaging, patented procedure. In doing so, cells are removed and the major component believed to play a major role in the xenogenic rejection reaction (alpha-1,3-Gal epitope) is significantly reduced.

This matrix has been shown to provide final single-phase reconstruction in the presence of contamination or infection.3,5,6





  • Enables rapid revascularization, cell repopulation and white blood cell migration (1)
  • Allows local treatment in case of infection and exposure of the implant (3)
  • Implant adhesion is minimized (4)
  • Offers strong reconstruction thanks to excellent biomechanical strength (1,2)


Strattice™ Reconstructive Tissue Matrix offers you a clinically proven option for treating patients with complex abdominal wall reconstructions.

Strattice™ Reconstructive Tissue Matrix showed a low recurrence rate and no graft removal in complex abdominal wall reconstructions, (3) allowing for a safe and effective alternative to multi-stage reconstruction adhesion and without the complications associated with synthetic mesh.

How it works

STRATTICE™ Tissue Matrix has been developed to strengthen tissue where there is weakness.


Preclinical studies have shown that STRATTICE™ Tissue Matrix regenerates to the recipient’s own tissue through cell repopulation, white cell migration and rapid revascularization.**(1)


Clinically proven: publications in more than 90 peer-reviewed articles on 2,000 hernia patients.*


Strattice™ is unique because of the way it is created. It uses a proprietary tissue processing technique, optimizing Strattice Tissue Matrix as a viable, intact regeneration base.
