Porcine collagen membrane Mem-Lok® Pliable Mem-Lok® Pliable is a strong and conformable collagen membrane made of highly purified, porcine tissue. Mem-Lok® Pliable offers flexibility and strength. It is easy to handle and simple to fixate. This barrier membrane supports soft tissue and stabilizes the grafting area. Meticulously manufactured from highly purified, intact, porcine collagen and minimally cross-linked, it is biocompatible and predictably resorbable. It is smoothly adaptable to defects and contours and can easily be repositioned. Due to its high suture pullout strength, it can be firmly anchored to the surrounding tissue. Product features Special handling characteristics [19] – Not side-specific – Can be placed dry or hydrated – Does not adhere to gloves or instruments – Simple, easy fixation – Single layer, intact collagen – Cell occlusive – High tear strength Supports wound healing [19] – Reduced degree of inflammation and foreign body response confirmed in pre-clinical testing at early timepoints – Protects the graft area from undesirable soft-tissue infiltration during initial healing phase – Enables nutrient transfer – Predictable resorption in 12 to 16 weeks – Greater initial stability during the critical early weeks of healing due to slow resorption time Dependable strength – Proven biomechanical strength safeguards fixation – In pre-clinical testing, suture pullout strength was three times higher than a comparable collagen membrane [19].
