Extra­cel­lu­lar Matrix in Wound Care Wounds, whether sur­gi­cal, burn-relat­ed, or stem­ming from var­i­ous oth­er caus­es, require opti­mal envi­ron­ments to heal. One remark­able advance­ment in the realm of wound care is the intro­duc­tion of extra­cel­lu­lar matri­ces, which play a piv­otal role in tis­sue repair and regen­er­a­tion. Lead­ing this inno­v­a­tive wave is the FORTIFY FLOWABLE® Extra­cel­lu­lar Matrix (ECM), which has shown promis­ing results in numer­ous applications.

Understanding the Extracellular Matrix

Before delv­ing into the specifics of FORTIFY FLOWABLE®, it’s essen­tial to under­stand the func­tion of the extra­cel­lu­lar matrix (ECM). The ECM is a three-dimen­sion­al net­work of pro­teins, gly­co­pro­teins, and oth­er macro­mol­e­cules that pro­vide struc­tur­al and bio­chem­i­cal sup­port to sur­round­ing cells. It acts as a scaf­fold, direct­ing cell growth and behav­ior, while play­ing a key role in tis­sue repair.

What is FORTIFY FLOWABLE® Extracellular Matrix?

FORTIFY FLOWABLE® ECM is derived from porcine small intesti­nal sub­mu­cosa (SIS). The use of porcine SIS is note­wor­thy because it close­ly mim­ics the human ECM, offer­ing a plat­form that is con­ducive to cell migra­tion and cap­il­lary growth.

Key Features and Benefits:

  • Tar­get­ed Appli­ca­tion: One of the stand­out attrib­ut­es of FORTIFY FLOWABLE® is its abil­i­ty to be placed direct­ly where it’s need­ed, ensur­ing that wounds get the max­i­mal benefit. 
  • Sup­ports Sur­gi­cal Wound Heal­ing: Wounds, espe­cial­ly sur­gi­cal ones, can be com­plex and require a sta­ble envi­ron­ment to heal. By pro­vid­ing a nat­ur­al ECM scaf­fold, FORTIFY FLOWABLE® aids in the heal­ing process. 
  • 360° Scaf­fold for Growth: This ECM doesn’t just act as a flat base. It offers a com­plete 360° scaf­fold, enhanc­ing cell migra­tion and cap­il­lary growth. 
  • Nat­ur­al Com­po­si­tion Retained: The SIS used retains the nat­ur­al com­po­si­tion of cru­cial matrix mol­e­cules, includ­ing col­la­gen, gly­cosamino­gly­cans, and glycoproteins. 
  • User-Friend­ly: Its sim­ple appli­ca­tion pro­ce­dure and con­ve­nient stor­age make it a pre­ferred choice for med­ical professionals.

Indications for Use:

FORTIFY FLOWABLE® ECM isn’t just lim­it­ed to one wound type. It’s ver­sa­tile, indi­cat­ed for a pletho­ra of wound categories:
  • Sur­gi­cal wounds 
  • Donor sites/grafts
  • Post-Mohs surgery wounds 
  • Par­tial and full-thick­ness wounds 
  • Post-laser surgery wounds 
  • Tunneled/undermined wounds
  • Sec­ond-degree burns
Wound care has wit­nessed sev­er­al advance­ments over the years, but the intro­duc­tion of extra­cel­lu­lar matri­ces like FORTIFY FLOWABLE® stands out. Its abil­i­ty to pro­vide a nat­ur­al, con­ducive envi­ron­ment for wounds of var­i­ous types makes it a cru­cial tool in the arse­nal of wound care pro­fes­sion­als. As research and tech­nol­o­gy con­tin­ue to advance, there’s immense poten­tial for such inno­va­tions to rede­fine wound heal­ing further.

In conclusion

extracellular matrix in wound care In the dynam­ic and ever-advanc­ing field of wound care, the intro­duc­tion of extra­cel­lu­lar matri­ces has brought about sig­nif­i­cant progress in the way we approach and facil­i­tate the heal­ing of var­i­ous wounds. Under­stand­ing the piv­otal role played by the extra­cel­lu­lar matrix (ECM) in direct­ing cell growth and behav­ior is cru­cial. The ECM acts as a scaf­fold, offer­ing struc­tur­al and bio­chem­i­cal sup­port, which is inte­gral to tis­sue repair. The con­cept of an ECM derived from porcine small intesti­nal sub­mu­cosa (SIS) close­ly mim­ic­k­ing the human ECM is a tes­ta­ment to the poten­tial of med­ical inno­va­tion. This unique ECM offers tar­get­ed appli­ca­tion, ensur­ing that wounds receive opti­mal care pre­cise­ly where they need it. Its abil­i­ty to pro­vide a 360° scaf­fold for growth, retain­ing the nat­ur­al com­po­si­tion of essen­tial matrix mol­e­cules, and its user-friend­ly appli­ca­tion pro­ce­dures make it a pre­ferred choice for med­ical pro­fes­sion­als. The ver­sa­til­i­ty of this prod­uct, indi­cat­ed for a wide range of wound cat­e­gories, demon­strates its poten­tial to rede­fine the stan­dard of wound care. Wound care is an ever-evolv­ing field, and as research and tech­nol­o­gy con­tin­ue to advance, the door to fur­ther inno­va­tion remains wide open. The intro­duc­tion of extra­cel­lu­lar matri­ces like the one dis­cussed here rep­re­sents a sig­nif­i­cant step in the quest to opti­mize the heal­ing process for var­i­ous types of wounds. It is a promis­ing indi­ca­tor of a future where patient care and well-being con­tin­ue to be at the fore­front of med­ical advance­ments. As we look to the hori­zon, we can antic­i­pate even more ground­break­ing solu­tions that will fur­ther rev­o­lu­tion­ize the way we approach wound heal­ing and patient care.
