Stravix® is a cryopreserved human placental tissue composed of umbilical amnion and Wharton’s jelly. Stravix retains the native collagen and hyaluronic acid-rich extracellular matrix (ECM), endogenous growth factors, and endogenous cells including epithelial cells, fibroblasts, and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) found in placental tissue.
Why Stravix?Stravix is a living placental tissue for surgical applications. It serves as an anti-adhesion, anti- inflammatory, and antimicrobial wrap to aid natural wound repair. As a viable wrap for surgical procedures, Stravix conforms to injured tissue, can be sutured, and is arthroscopic and robotic procedure friendly. Stravix is manufactured using a proprietary process allowing the tissue to retain its native components.
